New ASUS C200 Chromebook Listed on Amazon UK for £197

Upcoming ASUS Chromebook already available to buy — just not available for delivery

asus c200Brits wanting to bag the new ASUS C200 Chromebook can now grab one from Amazon UK — providing they don’t mind a 1-3 month wait.

Despite the first Chrome OS notebook from ASUS yet to get a formal UK or European release date, Amazon UK is already selling the device directly, albeit with an estimated dispatch time of ’1 to 3 months’.

It’s likely that this is a mangled pre-order listing and the device will formally be released at some stage in the next 1-3 months.

Pricing

Amazon lists the 11.6-inch notebook at £197.99 — making it cheaper than the HP Chromebook 11 (1st Gen) and only marginally more expensive than the Acer C720 (16GB), which one Amazon reseller is hawking for just £159. 

If ASUS maintains the US pricing then we can expect the 13.3-inch C300 Chromebook to retail at the same price. Yes, you read that right: ASUS is selling both models at the same price in the US. That means UK buyers may be able to pay £197.99 for an 11-inch version, or £197.99 for one with a 13.3-inch screen.

I know which I’d choose! 

The C200 is already available to buy in the states from Amazon US for $249, as well as from a handful of other retailers. The larger C300 model is, as of writing, currently unavailable for pre-order on either the US or UK site.

    So, why exactly is ASUS selling both sizes for the exact same price?

      Presumably because they want to make the 13.3 inch model competitive for the people who prefer that screen size.

    I think that the 11inch model could offer you better build quality :)

    No sign of the C200 nor the C300 on Amazon France… Fortunately, the power unit plug can be changed for an European version! BUT, I will wait for the first reviews. I want a fanless Chromebook with enough horsepower for heavy web pages. Maybe in the months to come, these preciousssss ones will be announced or released…
