The Asus Chromebook Flip C302 is a concept that has existed for almost as long as Google’s notebook brand itself, and it’s an idea that has rarely found the legs to succeed. We could take all day to reflect on what went wrong in the past, but in the present, the Asus Chromebook Flip C302 is the answer you’ve been waiting for to appease your high-end Chromebook-ing needs.
Like the original Asus Chromebook Flip before it, the Asus Chromebook Flip C302 is built from an all-aluminium chassis, though, this time it has an anodized finish rather than a brushed texture. Overall, it has a clean, no nonsense aesthetic and it folds up to a nearly symmetrical slab of metal.
Aside from being lighter, the Asus Chromebook Flip C302 seems to have been specifically designed for tablet use. Asus has come up with a clever magnetic clasp that pulls the screen lid tight against the underside of the notebook. It’s an ingenious addition that helps the 2-in-1 Chromebook feel like one solid device rather than a foldable electronic, and we’re surprised this solution hasn’t come sooner.
When you’re not using the Asus Chromebook Flip C302 as a tablet, it falls back on a solid keyboard that makes it as familiar and comfortable as any traditional laptop. The keys offer a satisfying 1.4mm of crisp key travel that we’ve missed in a world of ever-slimmer notebooks.
