Hands-on with the Asus Chromebook Flip C434 at CES 2019
The Asus Chromebook Flip remains one of the best Chromebook notebook models ever released, thanks in part to its light aluminum body and its 360-degree display hinge. As part of its CES 2019 product lineup, Asus announced a new model, the Chromebook Flip C434.
The Chromebook Flip C434 has a larger 14-inch 1,920 x 1,080 display in a body that normally would only allow for a 13-inch screen. The bezels on the new Chromebook Flip are only 5mm so owners will get an excellent view of their content.
Additionally, the display still has a 360-degree hinge so you can flip it and use it as a big touchscreen tablet.
The body of the Chromebook Flip C434 is all aluminum, not only on the lid. Inside, you can decide to have one of Intel’s 8th generation Core processor (Intel Core M3-8100Y, Intel Core i5-8200Y, or Intel Core i7-8500Y), and there’s support for up to 8GB of RAM and up to 128GB of onboard storage. You also have two USB Type-C ports, a standard USB port, and a 48Wh battery, although there’s no word yet on how long it will last on a single charge.
Asus says the starting price for the Chromebook Flip C434 will be $ 569, but has not yet announced a release date, stating it will be available “in the coming months.”
