    Performance stunning, keyboard feels great, screen is great. Not cheap but clearly worth it.
    ASUS C302CA so nice...-img_20170118_133540.jpg

    Ooh, pretty! Which processor does it have? What Octane score does it achieve?

    For me it crashes every 5-10 minutes in Beta channel. Uninstalled every extension and app (web store and google play store) and it still did. Gmail android app became nonresponsive, and the crashes never stopped.

    Anyone else have this problem? Know what might be causing this? Some people seem to have no problem with the Beta channel.

    Im having the same problem. Have not tried going back to stable to see if its a hardware issue. Probably will do that before calling support.

    I switched to dev channel and it works smooth. must be that specific build. I've got Google play apps running like it's nobody's business now.

    At least that rules out a hardware problem. Didn't want to have to return it. Hopefully an update will come out soon.

    since Samsung is coming out next week with their "playstore ready" Chromebook, I assume it should be pretty soon

    Update On Crashes. Just heard from Asus support. They said the beta channel is having problems and I need to switch to the stable channel to avoid the crashes. Guess I'll just have to wait for the play store to arrive on the stable channel. Hopefully, that will happen within the next week since Samsung says their new Chromebook coming out next week will ship with play store on it.

    I have to say I can highly recommend Dev channel. I haven't had a single hiccup since switching 5 days ago, and I'm using only a few Android apps that I need for it to be worth it as a daily driver.

    Just received update to version 56 on stable channel. Play store is now on the stable channel. Unfortunately, the stable channel is now crashing just like the beta channel did. Very frustrating.

    I removed the play store and no crashing so I reinstalled the play store and only downloaded a few apps. So far no crashes. I think there are probably some android apps that are causing the whole unit to crash. I'm going to load android apps one at a time and see if i can determine which ones are causing the problem.

    Just got my Asus c302ca a couple of days ago. I was pleasantly surprised to see the option for the Google Play Store in settings. I checked the box, and that's when the random crashes, reboots and restarts happened. I tried resetting and refreshing Chrome OS and nothing happened to improve the situation. This was with Asus on the stable channel! I also kept getting messages about the Play Store stopping. I must say, I had an Acer r13 before the Asus, and I never had problems with stability on the Acer that I have had with the Asus - and the Acer was on beta. Anyway, I got a Chrome OS update today for the Asus and when I applied it, and restarted, all of my Android apps were gone, along with the option to install Google Play Store. Now the Asus sings - without the Play Store. It's working beautifully. I'm not even sure it's worth it to switch to the beta or the dev channel just to get the Play Store. It's not ready for prime time yet, in my opinion. At least that's the case with Asus. I'll give it awhile before trying with the Play Store again. Maybe after another update or two, the Play Store will be stable enough to use.
