Sometimes, when something sounds too good to be true, it turns out to be exactly the case. That might also be the case with the ASUS "Chromebook Flip 2", a.k.a. the "accidentally" sold C302CA.

Chrome Unboxed immediately purchased one before the product page was pulled down and discovered somewhat to their disappointment that the $499 Chrome OS device actually came with slightly lower specs.
