Asus has entered the ChromeOS market with a series of Chromeboxes, but a pair of Chromebooks, with model numbers C200 and C300 will soon be entering the market and now their specs and pricing has apparently been leaked.
Both the C200 and C300 will run on the Intel Bay Trail based Dual-Core Celeron N2830 CPU clocked at 2.16GHz, but will come with different specs other than that. The C300 will apparently appear in the US this month, while the C200 is due out in May. We’ve already seen the C200 in a leak earlier this month but according to this we could be seeing the C300 quite soon.

With quite decent specced Bay Trail CPU’s, the C200 and C300 are going to be quite the powerhouse with their 2.16GHz CPU, the C300 will be quite the zippy machine paired with 4GB of RAM. It appears that the only downfall of the C300 is the 1366×768 resolution screen. Add a touch screen with FullHD resolution and there would be quite a market for this machine.
The prices seem quite decent, but are the US prices so we expect them to take quite a hike before they reach Australia, if indeed they do launch here, and Asus has made no formal announcements surrounding the release of either Chromebook. We can only wait and see if these Chromebooks will make their way to Australia.
