Chinese chip maker Rockchip have found some powerful partners in Haier, Hisense and Asus who have chosen the RK3288 SoC to power their new Chromebooks.

The quad-core RK3288 chip from Rockchip is a powerful chipset based on Cartex A17 architecture running at up to 1.8Ghz with a 600Mz Mali T760 GPU more than enough grunt to run a Chromebook which is exactly what will be doing in new devices from Haier, Hisense and Asus.

The Asus C201 offering will back a 11.6-inch display, and offers 13 hour battery life all for an amazing low $169 price tag. Hisense have also gone for a 11.6-inch panel but with a lower price of only $149 the same as the new Haier Chromebook with built-in carry handle and removable battery.

Those are some very impressive little laptops at less than $200. Each laptop is headed for the U.S this year with Europe and other destinations in the coming months.
