TAIPEI, Taiwan, April 8, 2022 ASUS today announced ASUS Chromebook Flip CX1, a new series made for boosting productivity and multitasking while having more fun — all day, every day.

Available in both 14-inch (CX1400) and 15.6-inch (CX1500) models, ASUS Chromebook Flip CX1 is powered by an up to quad-core Intel® Pentium® Silver processor. It’s also engineered with WiFi 6 and a long-lasting battery that delivers up to 11 hours of productivity on a single charge, handing users the freedom to breeze through everyday tasks. A 360° hinge with a Full HD touchscreen display provides incredibly immersive entertainment and the flexibility to study or work the way in whatever way best matches the task at hand.

As observed by Kelly Calhoun Williams in the Gartner report, 2022 CIO and Technology Executive Agenda: A K-12 Education Perspective , “While most institutions have been digitizing their business processes for many years, the COVID-19 pandemic forced millions of employees to work from home and exposed the many manual business processes that institutions relied upon to operate on a daily basis."

With smooth performance, robust security and convenient features, ASUS Chromebook Flip CX1 is perfect for empowering seamless entertainment and productivity for everyone – and primed for the post-pandemic world of hybrid work and learning.

Stylish and versatile design

ASUS Chromebook Flip CX1 embodies pure style with a distinctively trendy look and feel. The design also embraces sustainability, with recycled materials built in to make it more environmentally friendly. The 360° hinge allows the device to be used in tablet mode, laptop mode, tent mode or standing mode — so it’s ideal for browsing websites, powering through productivity tasks and sharing content easily with friends and colleagues.

A full-size, ergonomic keyboard with up to 1.5 mm key travel ensures that typing is both easy and supremely comfortable. The device also features a numeric keypad for convenient, intuitive number input.

Resilience, built right in

With structural reinforcements to boost chassis strength, ASUS Chromebook Flip CX1 is solidly built and provides durability for daily use and travel. It also meets next-level and industry-leading MIL-STD 810H US military tests4 , which are more rigorous and demanding than ever before. Additionally, the device undergoes stringent in-house testing — including panel-pressure, shock and drop tests — to ensure maximum strength and resilience, so there’s no need to worry about everyday knocks and bumps.

Smart productivity

With its powerful up to quad-core Intel processor, ASUS Chromebook Flip CX1 delivers excellent performance for responsive experiences with favorite apps. It also offers dual-band WiFi 6 (802.11ax) for strong, stable signals and superfast speeds, allowing online content to be loaded in the blink of an eye. Its connectivity is improved further by exclusive ASUS technologies — such as ASUS WiFi Master for Chrome OS5 — that ensure greater speed, stability and range for WiFi connections, helping users stay connected anywhere.

ASUS Chromebook Flip CX1 is also superbly power-efficient, with a long-life battery designed to last for up to 11 hours on a single charge, empowering work or play throughout the day.

The best of Chrome OS

Combined with the full capabilities of Google Workspace and other productivity apps from the Google Play Store , ASUS Chromebook Flip CX1 has everything needed to get anything done, all in one place. Updates and anti-virus protection are both built in and automated, seamlessly keeping both the device and its data safe and secure – and ensuring that the user always benefits from the latest features and protection.

Users can get more done fast using their voice on the ASUS Chromebook Flip CX1. Sending an email, finding documents, listening to music, accessing a calendar or controlling smart home devices can all be executed by saying “Ok Google” – with no need to switch apps or screens.

Each purchase of an ASUS Chromebook Flip CX1 also carries an entitlement to a 12-month Google One subscription. The membership includes 100 GB of cloud storage to use across Google Drive, Gmail and Google Photos, plus many other extra benefits — all in one shareable family plan.
