ASUS Unveils Its First-Ever 15-Inch Chromebook
ASUS has crafted a pretty compelling package with one of the main standout features of the larger C523 is clearly the 15.6-inch display. As a matter of fact, this is the first time ASUS has ventured into the 15-inch territory, joining the company of Acer and Lenovo.
So, what is this new Chromebook bringing to the table? Check it out:
- Intel® Celeron® Dual-Core N3350 Processor or Intel® Pentium® Quad-Core N4200 Processor
- 4GB/8GB RAM
- 15-inch 1920×1080 anti-glare display (with touch option)
- SD Card Slot
- HD Webcam
- Integrated 802.11a/b/g/n/ac (2×2)
- Bluetooth 4.0
- 1 x COMBO audio jack
- 2 x Type-A USB 3.1 (Gen 1)
- 2 x Type-C USB 3.0 (USB 3.1 Gen 1) with display and power delivery support

I think these Chromebooks could become contenders as long as the price is reasonable. A listing on Adorama’s site shows what looks like the base model with a price of about $270 configured with an Intel Celeron N3350 (dual core), 4GB RAM and a 32GB SSD.
