Summary:

How often do you see laptop models differ in screen size only and cost the same? Not very but that appears to be the case with the new Asus C200 and C300 Chromebooks.

The Chrome Show 2014

It’s not often that different device models are sold at the same price so when an Asus representative said both the C200 and C300 Chromebooks will cost $249, we were shocked. You don’t have to choose based on cost at that point; simply decide if you want an 11.6-inch or 13.3-inch Chromebook. Each uses the same 1366 x 768 resolution so there’s really no difference save for screen size.

  1. To be clear, only Stable and Beta channel Windows users will need to get extensions from the CWS. This does not affect Windows users on the Dev or Canary builds, and does not apply at all to ChromeOS, Linux, or Mac users.
