At CES 2017 today, Asus announced the launch of an updated version of the Chromebook Flip C302 notebook.

Following on from Apple, Asus has decided to get rid of all of the previous USB-A ports in favour of the USB Type-C ports, which may or may not be a good thing. In any case, it has two USB 3.1 Type-C ports fitted.

Thankfully, Asus still kept the 3.5 headphone jack and the microSD card slot. The new Flip C302 also features a 12.5-inch 1080p screen with a hinge that allows it to fold all the way back into a tablet format.

Inside you will also find either a 6th generation Intel Core m3 of Core m7 processor with either 4GB or 8GB of RAM, and between 32GB, 64GB and 128GB of storage, all of which is great for a Chromebook, but isn’t that amazing for the average laptop.

It also features the last generation Intel Core m3 chip, with 4GB of RAM, and an okay 128GB of storage, all in a build that weighs just 1.2kg and measures 13.7mm thin when closed.

Asus say that it will also feature up to 87dB of high-fidelity audio playback.

Asus has not revealed any more information than that yet and we don’t know it’s battery just yet, that all said, we might find out more about it soon.

The Asus Chromebook Flip C302 is available today in the US for from $499.
