ASUS is showing itself to be a competent company at dealing with all the challenges facing traditional consumer tech manufacturers in the post-PC world. It’s released some great smartphones recently, and now it’s just released a fantastic laptop. The Chromebook Flip has won me over.

I’m sure you can imagine, as a tech-reviewer it’s not often I fall for a product just on first impressions alone. But as soon as I picked up the Chromebook Flip, I adored it. The all-metal build looks, and feels fantastic. Its rounded corners and the gentle taper of the back towards the diamond-cut chamfered edges are beautiful. On the bottom, all the edges and corners are rounded, giving it a really friendly look, and making it comfortable to grip.

What’s more, the speakers are hidden underneath two perfectly round grilles made of hundreds of tiny machined holes. But it’s the hinge that makes this unique. The screen rotates 360 degrees, and can be used in 4 different modes: laptop, tent, stand or tablet modes. Because the hinge is so firm, it holds strongly at virtually any angle.

ASUS Chromebook Flip pops up on the Google Store

Google has listed the ASUS Chromebook Flip on the Google Store today, although it’s currently listed as “Coming soon.” The 2 GB of RAM version will cost $229, while the 4 GB of RAM version will cost $259. You’ll be able to purchase the device in three countries when it first becomes available: Canada, United Kingdom, and the United States.

This isn’t the first time the laptop has been available since it was announced earlier this year, as you’ve been able to pre-order it for quite some time through outlets like B&H and more.
