ASUS Rk3238 Overview

  • 1Description

Designed for a Web-optimized experience, the ASUS 10.1" Chromebook Flip C100PA 16GB Multi-Touch 2-in-1 Chromebook provides a user-friendly interface enhanced by the Internet.

This ASUS Chromebook has an 10.1" widescreen display, with a 16:10 aspect ratio and a 1280 x 800 native resolution. It can support native 720p HD video playback without letterboxing. The touchscreen lets you utilize the multi-touch gestures incorporated in Chrome OS. The 360° hinge also lets you turn the Chromebook Flip into a tablet. Additionally, the Chromebook can output video to an external display via the micro-HDMI port.

The system is powered by a Rockchip 3288-C SoC, which features a quad-core 1.8 GHz ARM Cortez-A17 processor and integrated ARM Mali-T764 graphics. It also has 4GB of onboard LPDDR3 RAM, 16GB of eMMC storage, 802.11ac Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 4.0, an integrated front-facing webcam, and a built-in microphone. There are also built-in stereo speakers. Additional compatible peripherals, such as extra storage, optical drives, mice, and more may be connected using the two USB 2.0 ports. Headphones, external speakers, or a mic may also be connected using the 3.5mm headphone-out/audio-in combo jack.

Google Chrome OS is a Linux-based operating system designed by Google to work exclusively with web applications. This ASUS Chromebook combines the aspects of a pure cloud client with the hardware of a traditional portable computer, which puts it in its very own class of netbook and notebook computers.

Please note that in order to take full advantage of Chrome OS, you will need to be connected to the Internet.

Chrome OS
Using Linux as a base, Google designed Chrome OS to work exclusively with web applications. The user interface takes a minimalist approach, which greatly resembles the Google Chrome web browser. Chrome OS was built for people who spend a majority, if not all, of their time on the computer connected to the Internet. The only application that comes installed on Chrome OS is a special Google Chrome web browser with an integrated media player and file manager. All other applications are accessed by adding apps from the Google Chrome Web Store. Since Chrome OS relies entirely on Google's web apps and access to Google's services, it is highly recommended that you connect to the Internet to optimize your Chrome OS experience.
10.1" Multi-Touch Display with 360° Hinge
The Chromebook features a 10.1" widescreen display. The screen features a 16:10 aspect ratio and a 1280 x 800 native resolution, powered by integrated ARM Mali-T764 graphics. The screen has native support for 720p HD video playback and supports multi-touch gestures. The 360° hinge can turn your Chromebook Flip into a tablet. A micro-HDMI port allows you to output high-definition video to a larger external display, such as an HDTV.
Rockchip 3288-C SoC
The C100PA features a Rockchip 3288-C SoC, which features a quad-core 1.8 GHz ARM Cortex-A17 processor and integrated ARM Mali-T764 graphics.
802.11ac Wi-Fi
Featuring Intel 802.11ac Wi-Fi, the C100PA delivers high performance, broader coverage, and longer battery life than previous Wi-Fi standards. The C100PA also comes with Bluetooth 4.0 technology so you'll be able to connect wirelessly to Bluetooth-compatible peripherals and accessories.
Cloud Connectivity
With built-in virus protection, the C100PA runs securely. It keeps your files safely backed up in the cloud, thanks to Chrome OS.
Fast Boot Up and Resume Times
The C100PA boots up quickly as well as resumes instantly from where you left off, thanks to its 16GB of eMMC flash storage.

    ASUS Rk3238 Reviews

    10.1" Chromebook Flip C100PA 16GB Multi-Touch 2-in-1 Chromebook is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 58.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing under $$laptop I've been hesitating quite a while to get a Chromebook. Do I really need ANOTHER laptop, being I have a Windows 10 and a Macbook Air. Plus an iPad mini. Well, I'm here to tell you, this machine is amazing! Battery life is excellent - and started right out of the box. I love the fact you don't have to constantly do updates and worry about viruses. I don't miss Microsoft products at all when I'm here. The only think I thought I missed was a right click. Couldn't figure out why it wasn't work - then found out you have to touch the touchpad with 2 fingers to get right-click. If I were to buy over again, I'd get 4G RAM model for more speed.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from better than expected The Chromebook platform is all that I really need . I still have my large screen windows desktop at home that I did my taxes on saved everything on my personal storage. I do not have a smart phone. I use a prepaid flip phone that is over 10 years old & costs me less than $100.00 annually to use. My Asus 10.1 Flip fits in my Scion glove compartment & works beautifully on WiFi whenever I want it with no additional monthly fees. The little screen is bright & sharp - more than adequate for my aging eyes. The touchscreen & keyboard do not frustrate my fat fingers. This is a great choice for me.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Chromebook and Tablet! I use my Flip as an alternative to carrying a traditional laptop for work. It's a great companion device. Having a keyboard when you need to do traditional computing is great, and then in a flip it's a 10 tablet. The keyboard on the back feels a little funky when it's in tablet mode, but it is disabled so you don't have to worry about striking any keys. Google has extended the Google Play store beta to this model hardware as well, which is really nice because you get the best of both the chrome web store and the play store. It comes with a SIM slot, so I'm going to try it out on Project Fi as soon as my data only SIM comes in.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great little machine ... I bought the ASUS Flip to replace my aging Samsung Chromebook. After three years the Samsung was getting a bit tired and worn ... still works, but showing signs of it's age and use. The ASUS Flip is much nicer. Initially I thought I would want a larger screen but handling the larger units wasn't as comfortable as using this tiny thing. The smaller screen is a bit crisper and colors and blacks are better. I'm learning to enjoy my first touch screen ... handy in the dark. This tiny lightweight browser is great last thing at night and first thing in the morning to check the news and mail in bed.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Flexible, functional I initially bought the 2gb RAM model and found it a tad glitchy. The extra $30 for 4gb solved that problem. This machine is sleek and highly efficient and versatile. Starts in no time, includes no nonsense software, weighs nothing in your bag, and runs all day on a nightly charge. Perfect for classroom use. I highly recommend this notebook. My only complaint is the glossy screen--I would have preferred the matte finish found on the Acer chromebooks, but opted for the glossy touch screen offered by Asus and do not regret it. Recommendation: learn Chrome OS's unique set of keyboard shortcuts and touchpad gestures for even greater ease of use. \Do not buy if you require a high quality camera or speakers. These are not included with this laptop.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from OUTSTANDING DEVICE I have had this chromebook/android tablet for several weeks and love it. It is so light to carry, has enough power to do what's needed without any problems and can run android apps! (even with the unstable version) The screen is bright and sharp. Typing on the small keyboard, I actually do better than on the regular size; not great or every very good at typing. There is nothing that I do not like about this chromebook/tablet. I sure you will like it too. B&H sent it very quickly! They are a great company which I enjoy doing business with.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Probably The Best Chromebook You Can Buy Chromebooks have had a rocky start yet people love them, I also have found myself attracted to the Chrome ecosystem. As I stated in my title. This is the best Chromebook you can buy right now (April 2016). I was originally scared by the huge bezel on this device. Its an 11 inch computer with a 10 inch screen but after looking through my options and reviews this seemed to be the best and I'm glad I made the choice. I do a lot of heavy computing, editing photos, exporting batched files from raw to jpg. My desktop is a beast, it puts to shame even the best laptops with its performance and I was concerned that buying a cheaper Chromebook may not live up to my standards. Surprisingly it has, its quick, responds pretty fast and only gets bogged down with a lot of tabs open mostly when using the touch screen. It fit my needs pretty well, I wanted something small and light, easy to travel with,and something I would use mostly for web. There are a few reasons why I'm only giving it 4 stars however. I think only absolutely fantastic computers should get 5 stars so far I have not found one. First is Chrome OS needs work. I like the functionality, I like the easy of use, what I don't like are the bugs even in the normal mode. Usually upon opening the screen. Also always seems to occur when one of my tech friends is interested in checking it out. Also the back swiping on the pad is buggy. I don't actually know if I'm going back a page for 2 seconds which is enough time for me to do it again or hit the back button. I know how Google works basically everything is Beta always but I would be nice to see refinement. 6/10 Also, USB-C. Sooo close yet so far. I understand this computer was designed probably 2-3 years ago, but what's up with the charging port? That's ludicrous Asus and you know it. This may seem petty but this device really does deserve USB-C. 6/10 Storage: I know, I know, but I guy can ask right? Almost any file I might need is in the cloud, but sometimes you like to keep stuff local. I can't keep much local because I've only got 16gb to play with. Please Google and Asus. Hear our cries. Make more storage. I know you want us all to use your cloud system but that's just not always practical. 3/10 Screen Bezel: It's huge, it shouldn't be that big. 4/10 Wifi: It does have to reconnect when you open the lid. Not a big deal at all, probably like that to improve battery life. So here is what I do like. Build quality is awesome. No other chromebook comes close. If you want a nice looking computer this is it. It reminds me of two Ipads hinged together. My Co-worker made a remark saying it's just a copy of the Macbook air. I'm okay with that because it's $270 bucks! Plus it actually has the tech a Macbook should have had 2 years ago(touch screen). Build quality is impressive. 10/10. Battery: it's solid. I've found it's not as good as it's listed on the Specs. but still very nice. 10ish hours seems to be the magic number. 9/10 (I'm glad battery tech is improving somewhere, definitely not on mobile phones). Screen, it's decent. Anything more and it would probably slow down the computer too much. As the problem on other Chromebooks is graphics. 7/10 Keyboard: its a nice place to be. Not a world class, laptop keyboard (I think Apple still has that). It's not backlit. Its simple. Warning though for non-chromebook users; it's not a standard keyboard, some of the buttons have been replace. Still has the typical qwerty style but its missing keys like Caps Lock (Which I've always found to be a nuisance). 6/10 Touch Pad: it decent. Nothing to get excited about. Takes a day or two to get used too. It also helps to let a bit of oil build up on it. I don't really ever use the click, unless copying and pasting something (the key commands are the same btw). I also enabled Australian Scrolling in settings. Makes scrolling more natural. Similar to a Macbook. 7/10 Performance: Lastly, it good to talk about how it does day to day. Chrome OS aside it does a great job. The Rockchip 3288-C handles web browsing, intensive pages and hangouts like a champ. I've yet to have a problem streaming music from the cloud or Spotify. It does what it should which is good because I then forget about it. 8/10 This Chromebook mostly gets me. That's why I got it. If you're looking for something small, convertible, and easy to use this is the ticket. If Asus updates the Chromebook Flip with what I discussed earlier I would totally buy another one. All together it gets a 7/10 It's so close to being the perfect device, Chrome OS, Storage, huge screen bezel and USB-C.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Would purchase again Initially I was not to familiar with chrome books and while I am still not expert this is a pretty decent little unit. We purchased two of them for out teenage daughters - they use it mostly for the web and Netflix as well as for some school work. The touchscreen is very responsive and the processor is fairly quick. I would say they are worth the money just don't expect it to be like a decent laptop. One thing to watch out for is the glass touchscreen - one of ours is already cracked and will need to be replaced.

    Can you use Ubuntu on this computer ?
    Asked by: CAELEN L.
    In theory enabling developer mode should allow you to then use crouton and install a Linux kernel based distribution like Ubuntu.Please note that I did not test this on my Chromebook Flip.

    will this computer print to a Brother printer?

    As long as you have a printer that is Google Cloud Print-compatible , it will work with a Chromebook.Almost all printers sold in the last couple of years meet this requirement.
