ASUS's Chromebook Educational series includes two traditional clamshell laptops - the 11.6-inch ASUS Chromebook C204 and the 14-inch ASUS Chromebook C403 - and the 14-inch ASUS Chromebook Flip C214 convertible. There's also a brand-new form factor introduced, with the ASUS Chromebook Tablet CT100, a 9.7-inch QXGA wide-angle touch-display tablet. The new series features durability, spill- and tamper-resistant keyboards and all-around rubber bumpers to withstand the rigors that electronics often face in schools.

The ASUS Chromebook C204, ASUS Chromebook Flip C214, ASUS Chromebook C403 and ASUS Chromebook Tablet CT100 boast similar specs and a common design aesthetic, but with a few crucial differences. The C204 is the successor to the ASUS Chromebook C202, an 11.6" laptop made for elementary school students, while the ASUS Chromebook Flip C214 is the follow-up to last year's 2-in-1 convertible, the C213. With a touchscreen display, stylus support, and a 360° hinge, it bridges the gap between laptop and tablet, and allows for laptop learning as well as more traditional lessons based on pen-based input.

The Chromebook Tablet CT100 is the first Chrome OS tablet from ASUS. This rugged tablet has the same version of Chrome OS that is available on the notebooks and Chromebox desktops. The rubberized chassis measures less than 10 mm thick, which means it's easier for small hands to hang onto and less likely to take a tumble as a result. And if it does end up in freefall, it's rated for drops up to 100cm; the height of most tables and desks.

The 9.7-inch QXGA display is covered in a strong tempered glass to help it stay protected against scratches and gouges. The stylus slides into a little garage in the tablet's frame for safekeeping. Inside this slim slate is a Hexa-core OP1 processor, made especially for Chromebooks. That works alongside 4GB of RAM, and school work can be stored on the 32GB of onboard storage. The Chromebook Tablet CT100 has a 35Wh lithium-polymer battery, and it charges via the same standard USB Type-C (USB-C) connection that's found on most smartphones.

Chromebook Tablet CT100 specifications:
Display: 9.7" multi-touch with glass cover, QXGA (1536x2048) resolution

The 11.6-inch HD display on the Chromebook C204 features an anti-glare coating is attached to the base via a 180° hinge that allows the laptop to lie completely flat. The keyboard is the primary source of input and features a deep 1.5mm of key travel, which is more than most laptops. The deeper travel allows for fewer errors than shallower keys where it's easier to accidentally press the keys. A touch screen variant further expands the functionality of the display and allows for more interactive lessons.

It can survive falls up to 120cm when dropped flat, and up to 80cm when dropped on its sides. A raised rubber rail on the bottom of the laptop makes it even easier to hang onto, so it's less likely to be dropped in the first place.

Under the hood, there is a dual-core Celeron processor from Intel, as well as 4GB of RAM and 32GB of onboard storage. A USB Type-A port makes it easy to connect external storage or plug in a mouse, and there are two reversible USB Type-C ports for newer peripherals. The microSD card makes it easy to transfer photos from a camera to the cloud, and the audio combo jack lets students plug in to listen to virtual lessons or make video calls using the HD webcam.

ASUS Chromebook C204 has been upgraded to a 50Wh battery; enough to last all day long. And to make sure there are no dropped connections, dual-band Wi-Fi (802.11ac) allows for connections on the 2.4GHz band as well as the less crowded 5GHz frequency.

The ASUS Chromebook Flip C214 has a convertible design that effortlessly transforms between a tablet and a laptop - or anything in between - based on student's needs. The C214 has the same rugged exterior, spill-proof keyboard, and dark grey color scheme.

The hardware includes a N4000 and optional N4100 Celeron processor, 4GB of RAM, and 32GB of storage complemented by expansion via MicroSD or USB Type-A. Students can connect to external displays or charge up via either of the two USB Type-C ports, and a stable and reliable internet connection is facilitated by the dual-band 802.11ac.

The C214 has a 11.6" HD display with an anti-glare coating (available on certain configurations) and is anchored by a durable 360° hinge that allows it to seamlessly switch between laptop and tablet mode. An optional stylus slots into a garage on the side and Asus also adjusted the placement of the world-view camera based on feedback from C213 users. The new location in the bottom right corner of the palm rest is better suited for video calls and recording when the laptop is in tablet mode. In its old location above the keyboard, it was easily obscured when the computer was turned on its side and help up in portrait. Now kids can grip both sides of the laptop, in portrait or landscape, and not worry about blocking the view.

Chromebook C214 specifications:
Display: 11.6" wide-view LED backlit with anti-glare coating and 250 nits/11.6" Touchscreen wide-view LED backlit and 250 nits; Wacom EMR support, Gorilla Glass 3

The ASUS Chromebook C403's 14" HD display provides ample workspace and it has a matte coating to minimize distracting reflections from overhead lights, and a 180° hinge that allows for more freedom of motion and different work positions.

In addition to being bigger, the C403 is also the most powerful. It can be equipped with up to a dual-core CPU from Intel, and features 4GB of RAM and 32GB of onboard storage. In addition to enlarging the screen, the travel distance on the keyboard has also been increased. The ASUS Chromebook C403 keyboard features 2mm of travel. And, thanks to its increased size, the C403 can squeeze in an additional USB Type-A port, so students don't have to unplug their mouse to plug in a USB drive when taking that assignment to the printer.

There are also two USB Type-C ports with support for outputting to external displays. Both ports are also capable of charging the laptop, and the C403 is rated for up to 11 hours on a single charge. Rounding out the collection of I/O ports is an audio combo jack for when students want to buckle down and do some work while listening to music, or need to watch video presentations for school. Headphones aren't required for great sound, though; extra room in the chassis allowed for more powerful speakers. The included stereo speakers feature extra-large chambers that pump out volume up to 80dB.

In keeping with other newly introduced ASUS Chromebooks, the C403 is ruggedized, and made for rough handling. The durability includes reinforced corners and a rubberized exterior to protect it from bumps and falls. The spill-resistant keyboard adds extra protection, and the hinge allows for a full 180 degree range of motion.
