Taiwanese consumer electronics maker Asus has announced its new Chromebook Flip C434 at CES 2019. Asus Chromebook Flip C434 is the successor of the company’s Flip C302 that we saw in 2017 and it comes with a 360-degree hinge, which means that it can also be used as a tablet. The laptop comes with an aluminium design and is powered by the Intel 8th generation CPUs. Besides this, there are a number of other upgrades in the Chromebook Flip C434.
The Asus Chromebook Flip C434 has a 14-inch NanoEdge display with a full-HD resolution which is outlined by bezels that are 0.5-inch in size. It is worth noticing that NanoEdge display technology is not something new on Asus Zenbook laptops. Coupled with it is a full-sized backlit keyboard on the Asus Chromebook Flip C434 laptop.
There will be three processors that customers will be able to choose from on the new Chromebook Flip C434. The device is powered by Intel Core m3-8100Y, Intel Core i5-8200Y or Intel Core i7-8500Y processor. All the three variants come with up to 3GB of RAM and up to 128GB of eMMc storage.
The connectivity options of the Asus Chromebook Flip C434 laptop include Wi-Fi, Bluetooth v4.0, and three USB 3.1 ports. Among these three, two are USB Type-C and one is a Type-A port. The newly launched device by the Taiwanese giant comes with 48Whr of battery capacity. It also has a microSD card reader and comes with an audio combo jack.
Prior to CES 2019, Asus announced four new Chromebooks, among which is the company’s first Chrome OS-based tablet. The four Chromebooks that were launched by Asus were a part of the company’s new Chromebook Education series laptops. The Asus Chromebook Flip C434 laptop that has been launched at CES 2019, is among the premium offerings by the Taiwanese technology company.
The price of the Asus Chromebook Flip C434 laptop will start at $569, and the company said that it will be available to purchase in the next few months. However, there is no specific date of launch announced at the moment.
