Is Asus the next Chromebook manufacturer?

It's been rumored that Asus "might" enter the Chromebook production business with an ARM-powered laptop with a 12-inch screen powered by an Nvidia Tegra 3 quad-core processor and running the Chrome OS. Read more

Im not familiar with Asus, but i will be interested in seeing how the Asus Chromebook will do against the Samsung Chromebook Series 5 & Acer Chromebook AC700. Looking forward to a Asus Chromebook review!

So far the Samsung Series 5 Chromebook is #1 on my list.

I also hear a Toshiba Chromebook is in the works....

For me, the possibility of an ARM-powered Chromebook with these specs would be one reason to hold-off buying one soon. Assuming of course that Asus actually intends to have have one ready this year...

Did you see that the price could be as low as three hundred dollars, or even lower? I wonder if it would have wi-fi or 3G or 3G both.

Judging from what I've seen, 3G always adds a nice chunk on to the bottom line.
How could it not?

Man ARM..Quad..and now Adobe is really focusing on ARM based flash playback (because of android). I think you would be looking at a 10 hour + battery too... man excited!!

All good points, and IMHO Asus has always produced decent hardware, this could be a real winner here!

I have an Asus netbook that I really like (although Windows is so bloated that it made it nearly impossible to use), so an Asus Chromebook would be nice.

I've got an Asus laptop. It's very fast and the video is great. The only downside is the reflective screen; it's really annoying, But if they can produce a WiFi ChromeBook for $300 with a non reflective screen, I'm in. This may delay my Samsung purchase,

Between the Transformer, inventing Netbooks, Gaming laptops and now this, ASUS is becoming my favorite brand...

Edit. And that sliding Android Tablet for Fall...
