Last year Asus was the clear king in the Chromebook department with the flip, this year they are looking to retain the crown with an updated device with updated specs that puts it ahead of the competition. But we have a challenger in the Samsung Chromebook Plus/Pro this year. Looking to redeem themselves for last fall Samsung looks to be coming out of the gate swinging this year and they brought their award winning display tech with them as well as their S-pen. This is clearly going to come down to performance vs display and as I am currently having this discussion with myself now, being in the market for a Chromebook this year, I am excited that manufacturers are stepping their game up and making the decision even tougher this year.
