There are plenty of very tempting laptop deals courtesy of Prime Day, and here’s another doozy from Amazon for Prime subscribers who want a Chromebook, with a sterling hybrid model – the Asus Chromebook Flip – having been reduced to £440.
Normally, this convertible Chromebook has a recommended price of £600, and in our review (where the device scored full marks), we called it reasonably priced at this level. So with £160 knocked off, it’s quite the bargain to say the least.
It’s Amazon Prime Day 2017, the online shopping giant’s annual mega sale, with exclusive deals for Amazon Prime members – and if you’re not already signed up you can get a free trial today. Stick with TechRadar to find out how and when to grab all the best deals.
The Chromebook Flip is very nicely put together and uses a 360-degree hinge to pull off its hybrid magic, converting from a full laptop to tablet (and the usual modes in between, i.e. tent and stand).
The notebook runs with an Intel Core m3-6Y30 processor (1GHz with Turbo to 2.2GHz) along with 4GB of system memory and 64GB of eMMC storage.
You also get a 12.5-inch Full HD (1080p) touchscreen display along with a backlit keyboard, and the device is commendably lightweight at 1.2kg, making it easy to cart around.
Battery life is estimated at a healthy 10 hours, and we found this to be on the money in our testing – in fact, the laptop lasted for almost 11 hours with the movie playback test in our review. At the time, we noted that this was the “longest-lasting premium Chromebook” that we’d ever got our hands on.
