ASUS upgrades Chrome OS

CES 2022. Chromebook Flip CX5 is a new convertible that has introduced ASUS in Las Vegas. Updated with the 12th generation Intel Alder Lake mobile processors, it represents another level leap for Google’s platform on PCs, on the same level as those running Windows operating systems.

The Chromebook Flip CX5 is based on a 16-inch multi-touch screen. A size that is imposing itself by offering the display capacity of the 17-inch models in a footprint similar to the 15-inch ones with dimensions of 358.2 x 261.6 x 18.95 mm. This is helped by the 3-sided NanoEdge design offering an 87% screen-to-body ratio and a slim bezel of just 4.66mm. Your panel is a IPS with native resolution WUXGA (1920 x 1200 pixels) and aspect ratio 16:10, very suitable for working with it.

Like a good convertible, it has a special hinge that ASUS calls 360 degree ErgoLift, which allows the screen to be flipped in any position according to the use requirement, from laptop to tablet, through presentation modes. In laptop mode, this ErgoLift design automatically tilts the keyboard 2.3 degrees when the convertible is opened, allowing users to type more comfortably and increasing the ventilation space under the chassis to improve heat dissipation.

The lid of this ASUS Chromebook Flip CX5 is made of mineral gray aluminum alloy with an anodizing coating, which provides a refined aesthetic and a stylish, professional look. The design also embraces sustainability, incorporating recycled materials to make it more environmentally friendly. Notably, it has been tested to meet the stringent standards of the MIL-STD-810H military type certification.

Inside, the new twelfth generation Intel Alder Lake processors shine, with the possibility to choose between Core i3, Core i5 o el Core i7-1255U. As an option, for professional convertible use, ASUS offers vPro processors that include hardware management and security, and optimization of workflows in the cloud.

You can equip up to 16 Gbytes of RAM LPDDR4X 4266 MHz, while for internal storage it offers solid state drives M.2 NVMe PCIe 512 Gbytes. Its connectivity is also updated with Wi-Fi 6E, which along with ASUS WiFi Master technology provides faster and seamless wireless transmission performance for users.
