Asus has so far kept their ChromeOS devices limited to the Chromeboxes released earlier this year. But Kogan has begun selling their entry level Chromebook in Australia offering the Chromebook on their website for $359.
The specs are fairly basic, but includes the Intel Bay Trail-m Celeron N2830 processor clocked at 2.4GHz. The usual 1366×768 resolution is painted on an 11.6″ display which from reports seems to be quite decent. While a smallish 16GB drive is included, there’s the usual SD/MMC card slot to expand locally (including USB drives) and it qualifies for the 100GB Google Drive storage offer which runs for 2 years.
Full specs of the Asus Chromebook C200 (C200MA-KX002) include :
- 11.6″ 1366×768 resolution HD LED Screen
