ASUS Chromebook Flip C100PA-DS03 General Review

ASUS Chromebook Flip C100PA-DS03 is a portable entry-level Chromebook with enough specs to run Chrome OS and using Chrome OS applications without any lag or issues. Lets see this Chromebook's general review.

This model weighs only 2 pounds and is about 0.6 inches thin. With its 10.1 Inch display, this is a portable and lightweight Chromebook to buy and use. Best suited for travelers, writers and people who want a lightweight laptop for basic editing and usage. As this is a touchscreen Chromebook, you can use in different modes like display mode, laptop mode, tablet mode or in Tent mode. You will have the best typing experience, thanks to its well spaced keyboard and trackpad.

C100PA-DS03 is mainly focused on portability. 10.1 Inch WXGA display with touchscreen is acceptable for the price. You are getting more than HD display resolution with touchscreen functionality for that low price.

This model is powered by 1.8 GHz Rockchip Quad-Core RK3288C processor and comes with 4 GB RAM and 32 GB eMMC storage. This processor is designed for Android or Chrome OS devices. So, for Chrome OS, this entry-level processor is enough for doing daily tasks. With 4 GB DDR3 RAM, this is the best and cheap entry-level Chromebook to buy at the time of this review.

32 GB eMMC storage is low to store data, but as this is a Chromebook, you can't expect more storage. You can expand the storage via SD card or buy a Chromebook with more storage like ASUS Chromebook C302CA-DHM4, which comes with 64 GB storage.

You can run Android apps on this device but in developer mode (at the time of this review). In future you may have stable installation but for now, you have to install and use in developer mode.

Features basic connectivity with two USB 2.0 ports, one Micro HDMI port and one SD card slot. You can enjoy fast wireless connectivity with 802.11 ac WiFi adapter and Bluetooth 4.0. It would have been better if this model features atleast one USB 3.0 port. Battery life is good and can give up to 7 hours of battery life in normal usage.


This is an entry-level laptop or Chromebook with very basic specs and amazing features. Touchscreen and lightweight design are the features you shouldn't ignore.
