5.0 out of 5 stars Here is some information that I wish I had when making the purchase decision, October 12, 2017

Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I bought this to be my main ultra portable travel machine and so far I love it. Here's information that isn't readily available online or in the product literature (circa October 2017):

1. Out of the box you need to manually go to system settings and trigger an update in order to get Android app support
2. You can only load apps purchased via Google Play for your currently signed in Google account. For example, if you bought XCom using your personal Google account, and Grand Theft Auto using your work account, you can only install and play XCom when signed into the Chromebook on your personal account, and you can only install/ play GTA when logged into your business account. This is different from a phone where you can access multiple accounts from within the Play store and have apps from multiple accounts coexisting
3. That said, for apps like Gmail that allow you to use multiple Google accounts within the app, that seems to work fine
4. While the Chromebook... Read more

4.0 out of 5 stars Very nice performance running ChromeOS and Android apps - beware of a potential manufacturing defect, October 10, 2017

The Chromebook Flip C101PA looks and feels the same as last year's model but now has a faster processor that works well with Android apps and games.

This is an impressive little Chromebook - the new Rockchip processor inside of it performs quite well - both for web browsing but also for running Android apps. In fact the performance out of this is every bit as good as some Intel based Windows laptops I've reviewed recently at around the same price point.

Most of the Android games and apps we threw at the Flip were compatible, although some exhibited some odd behaviors with window sizes. It was even able to run some game emulators (often a very demanding task) and my game controller also worked.

All in this is a nice compact device that offers the best of both worlds - a thin and light laptop running ChromeOS along with compatibility with many Android mobile apps.

Why only four stars? Mine is often... Read more

Discovery and diagnosing:
My C1010PA-DB02 was shipped and arrived in two days. I unboxed it. read the quick start manual. It states pretty clearly to not operate the device on battery power until it's charged for 3 hours. So i plugged in the power adapter and opened the screen. According to the quick start guide opening the screen would turn the chromebook on. Mine did not. I looked for the power button. Found it next to the a white LED light with the "lightbulb" icon. The white LED was lit steady and stayed that way. The charge indicator was blinking orange indicating it was charging. I clicked the power button. No joy. I click the power button again. No joy. Opened and closed the screen multiple times. No joy. The LED indicator lights remained the way they were. Using my phone i downloaded the full manual for the chromebook on Asus's website. It said to hold the power button down for 4 seconds. No change. So i tried many durations of holding down the button. No joy... Read more
