Powering productivity and gaming

ASUS Chromebook Flip CM5 is designed for young, tech-savvy users who need an intuitive, user-friendly laptop that provides powerful performance and enables mobile productivity. These users are accustomed to working and enjoying entertainment in the cloud. ASUS Chromebook Flip CM5 is powered by AMD Ryzen — with the option to upgrade to the AMD Ryzen 5 processor — delivering exceptional performance and responsiveness for ultimate cloud-based productivity and entertainment. The 57 Wh battery offers up to 10 hours of battery life and the laptop features up to 16 GB of memory as well as storage of up to a 512 GB PCIe® SSD.

Distinctive, daring design

The bold aesthetic of ASUS Chromebook Flip CM5 is tailored to young users who enjoy daring creative expression and displaying their unique style. ASUS Chromebook Flip CM5 is the first Chromebook with striking orange color-blocked WASD keys, and this design lets users stand out while enjoying quick, intuitive gameplay in cloud-based games. On the exterior, the laptop features a Mineral Gray aluminum-alloy metal lid chassis. Illuminating the all-black interior, the full‑sized backlit keyboard offers 1.4 mm key travel for more comfortable typing, and the Obsidian Velvet texture of the palm rest area offers a silky-smooth feel for added comfort during extended use. Additionally, the large, 5.68-inch glass touchpad is engineered for maximum comfort, accuracy and control, and it features palm-rejection technology and multitouch gesture support.

The precision-engineered 360° ErgoLift hinge on ASUS Chromebook Flip CM5 smoothly adjusts and secures the display at any angle. The hinge also lifts and tilts the keyboard into the perfect typing position when the display is rotated into laptop mode, and this position creates extra space underneath the laptop to enhance the audio and allow more airflow for improved cooling.

Ultimate cloud entertainment experiences

ASUS Chromebook Flip CM5 combines support for NVIDIA GeForce NOW and Google Stadia with stunning visuals and crisp, powerful audio to unleash the best of cloud gaming.

GeForce NOW s NVIDIA’s cloud-based game streaming service that delivers real-time gameplay straight from the cloud to laptops, desktops, SHIELD TVs, and Android and iOS devices. With cloud-based game saves for supported free-to-play games, users can pick up a game where it was left off, on any supported device, wherever they are.

Stadia is Google’s gaming platform that lets users instantly play their favorite video games on screens they already own. Access to Stadia is free — users only pay for the games. Games can be streamed directly on favorite compatible devices, and they are ready wherever there is WiFi or Ethernet, without waiting for installs, downloads or updates.

The seamless visuals and excellent audio on ASUS Chromebook Flip CM5 bring cloud entertainment to the next level. The three-sided NanoEdge display maximizes the screen area and screen-to-body ratio, making visuals more immersive. The display offers Full HD resolution and delivers wide viewing angles and exceptional color reproduction for vivid, true-to-life visuals. Additionally, dual high-quality stereo speakers provide Harman Kardon-certified audio, and USI stylus support enables fluid and efficient creativity, anywhere.

Unparalleled connectivity

The seamless connectivity on ASUS Chromebook Flip CM5 expands possibilities. ASUS WiFi Master Premium for Chrome enhances connections by filtering out wireless interference to provide the fastest possible speeds and stable connections, and the option of integrated WiFi 6 technology lets users enjoy faster-than-wired speeds of up to 2.4 Gbps for smooth streaming of FHD online videos and quick transfers of large files. Two full-function, reversible USB-C® 3.2 Gen 2 ports make it easy to charge connected devices, stream media or connect with peripherals. An HDMI 1.4 port provides the option to hook the laptop up to an external display, and a microSD slot enables extra storage for maximum convenience and compatibility.

Productivity, reliability and security

For both work and play, ASUS Chromebook Flip CM5 is the gateway to the very best of Google.
