On Thursday, Asus debuted its Chromebook Education series, a range of different Chrome OS devices designed for use in the classroom.
The lineup includes the Asus Chromebook C204 and Asus Chromebook C403 (both clamshell-styled laptops), the Asus Chromebook Flip C214 convertible and Asus Chromebook Tablet CT100. While Asus has released several Chromebooks in the past (like the previousand ) the CT100 is the company’s first Chrome OS tablet.
The tablet comes with a scratch-resistant screen, a Hexa-core OP1 processor, 4GB of RAM and 32GB of storage. Asus says the 35Wh lithium-polymer battery is enough to last the full school day, and it charges via USB-C port. Asus markets it as an intro device for younger kids.
The devices come in different sizes, ranging from the 9.7-inch CT100 tablet, 11.6-inch C204 laptop to the 14-inch C403 and C214 convertible. But since they’re all designed for education, Asus says they’re no bigger than a textbook and can fit into a backpack. They’re also built tough to withstand bumps, and the Chromebooks have spill-resistant keyboards.
There’s no exact release date for these devices yet. Asus says that they will be available in the coming months, and prices will be revealed at launch.
