Co-engineered with Intel as part of the Project Athena innovation program, the ASUS Chromebook Flip C436 is ASUS’ latest premium Chrome OS-powered laptop and the second Project Athena-verified Chromebook after the Samsung Galaxy Chromebook we featured previously.
This being a Project Athena verified device, it means it will start up in under a second when you lift the lid. It also means it will have at least 9 hours of battery life and it need have fast charging. While that is a standard set by Intel, we do not have actual figures from ASUS.
This ultra thin Chromebook gets up to 10th-generation Intel Core i7 processor, up to 16 GB RAM, fast NVMe SSD, a 14-inch FHD NanoEdge display with 85 percent screen-to-body ratio, 360-degree hinges, power button with integrated fingerprint sensor, omnidirectional quad-speaker, USI stylus support, and the latest Wi-Fi 6 networking and of course, Bluetooth 5.0 technology.
All these features are packed inside a beautiful 13-inch magnesium alloy chassis that weighs in at mere 1.1 kilograms (2.4 lbs).
It will be offered in two finishes: iridescent Aerogel White and classic Transparent Silver (no, it is not actually transparent). For those who don’t know, like any Flip before it, the ASUS Chromebook Flip C436 is a 2-in-1 device.
The ASUS Chromebook Flip C436 was revealed at CES 2020 and it is slated to hit the stores in the first half of 2020. Pricing is TBA.
