The first series of Chromebooks was released back in 2011, and it aimed to provide a full PC functionality just for a part of the regular price. The Chromebooks received this name because they are running on the Chrome Os, developed by Google in partnership with Linux. They present a much svelte look, being convenient and affordable. At the same time, Asus competes with Samsung when it comes to offering the best Chromebook model. The most recent products are the Chromebook Pro and the Chromebook Flip C302CA. But let’s see a brief comparison between the two.
Dimensions and Weight
The two devices are not different from each other, the Samsung Chromebook being 11.04 x 8.72 x 0.55 inches large. Meanwhile, the Asus Chromebook Flip measures 11.97 x 8.3 x 0.54 inches. As such, the Asus model is smaller and thinner than its rival. When it comes to weight, Samsung produced something that weighs 2.38 pounds, while the Asus one weighs 2.65 pounds. We can safely declare the Asus 2-in-1 device the winner here.
Samsung and Asus both used the same CPU model, namely the Intel Core m3 one. The RAM used is 4 GB for both devices, but the difference here is the fact that Samsung has a LPDDR 3 one and Asus just a DDR3. They both run on an Intel HD Graphics 515 GPU, but the display differs. While Samsung went for a 12.3 inches LED display with IPS technology, Asus chose a 12.5 inches Full HD one.
The resolution offered by the Samsung Chromebook Pro is a 2400×1600 one, with a 235 ppi, while the Asus Chromebook Flip offers a 1920×1080 one and thus a 176 ppi. About the price, the Samsung product costs $550 and it is available since late April, while the Asus one costs $500 and you can find it on Amazon.
