Asus at CES 2019 has brought a plethora of new products and the announcement also includes for its new Chromebook convertibles. The Taiwan-based multinational company has also launched Chromebook Flip C434, a convertible with a 14-inch display and 8th-gen Intel core processors. It’s the successor to the Chromebook Flip C302 and while it has got the same all-metal construction with brushed aluminum, the display is way wider than the predecessor. The Chromebook C434 has smaller bezels as it pushes the display to the edges of the body.
The Chromebook C434 has an ultra-compact form factor with a premium design, thanks to all-metal construction. Also, the NanoEdge display technology squeezes a 14-inch Full HD touchscreen display into a 13-inch chassis. The bezels on either side have been shrunk down to 5mm, so the display looks perfect while you’re streaming videos on the Chromebook C434.
It’s powered by up to Intel Core i7 CPU coupled with an 8GB RAM and has up to 128GB storage with support for 2TB microSD cards. It has an Intel HD Graphics 615 and a 14-inch IPS FHD glossy screen with 87% screen-to-body ratio.
It has 15.7mm thick metal chassis and 1.45Kg total weight. It offers dual-band 802.11ac Wi-Fi and Bluetooth 4.0 as connectivity options. Others include two USB Type-C ports as well as a standard USB Type-A port for peripherals. There are two speakers built into the base which pump up the sound while you’re watching your favorite moves. In the heart of the Chromebook C434 is the Google Chrome OS that promises speed and security.
Asus hasn’t yet disclosed the exact schedule of its release but has said that it will be available in the coming months in a variety of configurations. Also, the pricing details may get available near the launch.
