ASUS Chromebook Flip: budget netbook in tablet/laptop hybrid style

We somehow expect a lot from our netbooks nowadays, when before we only needed it for word processing and web surfing functionalities.

This means those custom maps you've been saving for future use can be viewed right on the Google Maps app for Android.
