With the overwhelming majority of vendors updating its notebook fleets with Intel 10th gen processors, ASUS has added a new model, its Chromebook fleet, the Chromebook Flip C436. Two new models are available with Intel’s new Comet Lake CPUs, one outfitted with a dual-core Intel i3-10110U, while the other variation comes with a quad-core Intel i5-10210U.
Adding to its ‘premium’ range of Chromebooks, which has models ranging from entry-level Intel Celeron variants, the brand new ASUS Chromebook Flip C436 has a 2-in-1 convertible design. It sports a compact 14-inch 1080p touchscreen with its 4-sided NanoEdge display technology.
The display itself has a 360° hinge which allows it for use in multiple configurations along with tablet mode, and as a stand. It is built from magnesium alloy and comes in two colors, transparent silver, and aerogel white.
Looking at the technical specs, there are two current models available for purchase from the ASUS Store.
It further contains two USB 3.1 G1 Type-C ports, which both help display and power delivery. Alongside the top bezel is an HD webcam, with an illuminated chiclet keyboard, and a fingerprint sensor combined into the power button.
The ASUS Chromebook Flip C436 conforms to Intel’s Project Athena certification with a reported battery life of as much as 12 hours.
