The new school season is here and with it comes the usual headaches for parents like getting uniforms, stationery, new class schedules to adapt to and the like but the biggest concern at the forefront, is getting the right laptop for classwork which is where the ASUS ChromeBook Flip C214 comes into the picture.
Built for School
Intended for students all the way to secondary school and likely beyond depending on the nature of their coursework, the ASUS ChromeBook Flip C214 has an 11.6-inch HD matte touchscreen.
Featuring sturdy 360-degree hinges, the ChromeBook Flip C214, hence its name enables you to use it either as a traditional laptop or as a tablet depending on the nature of the classwork at hand by simply flipping the touchscreen display around.
Parents can save more as they needn’t have to buy a laptop and a tablet as the Chromebook Flip C214 combines the benefits of both form factors into one device.
Online classes? Not a problem with the Chromebook Flip C214. Seeing as classes are being conducted for the most part online, it packs a front-facing HD webcam for video calls as well as a 5MP camera at the bottom right of the keyboard so that comes into play when used in tablet mode.
Even better, the ChromeBook Flip C214 also ships with a stylus that is integrated into a stylus well in the chassis of the laptop which makes it less likely to be lost and easy to retrieve for coursework.
Built tough to Last
The ChromeBook Flip C214 is built to last with a host of features that make it resistant to the usual hazards befalling laptops. For starters, it is built to military grade MIL-STD-810G levels of durability, allowing it to survive a drop up to 120cm to the floor without turning into an expensive art deco sculpture.
It’s also able to survive 30kg of force on the lid and bottom without damage while the hinges have been tested with over 50,000 open-close cycles, ensuring sturdy service for a long time to come.
The keyboard has also been made to be tamper proof with keys that are hard to pry out by over adventurous users and it also is spill resistant so that it can shrug off minor splashes like a spilt drink or two.
Seeing as it’s built to last, the ChromeBook Flip C214 also sports a practical textured finish that’s scratch and fingerprint resistant while minimising the chances of it being accidentally dropped.
