Back at the Consumer Electronics Show 2017 in January, Asus unveiled a new Chromebook that’s aimed at students. The Chromebook Flip C213 is aimed at schools which is why it has a rugged construction that protects it against bumps and drops. The machine also has a 360 degree hinge with rubber bumpers. Over six months after the device was unveiled, Asus has finally started selling the Chromebook Flip C213.

Chromebooks are very popular in the education market so it’s not surprising to see Asus come out with a Chromebook that’s aimed primarily at that particular sector.

The Chromebook Flip C213 from Asus is powered by an Intel Apollo Lake Dual-Core N3350 processor with 4GB of RAM and 32GB of onboard storage.

It also features two USB Type-C ports, two USB Type-A ports, one microSD card reader, and a headphone jack. Also present onboard is an HD front camera and a 5 megapixel rear camera.

Asus also says that the Chromebook Flip C213 has a “modular construction,” which basically means that the IT departments of schools will be able to easily replace parts that kids are inevitably going to end up breaking.

Asus is selling the Chromebook Flip C213 for $349. It’s also going to launch a glass and stylus version of the machine later this year in September for $399.
