Introducing ASUS Chromebook CX1

the 11.6-inch ASUS Chromebook CX1 and ASUS Chromebook Flip CX1

TAIPEI, Taiwan, July 29, 2022 — ASUS today announced ASUS Chromebook CX1, an all-new lightweight and sustainable laptop with trendy aesthetics, and designed to empower modern on-the-go lifestyles.

With up to a bright, clear Full HD 14-inch display, ASUS Chromebook 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 12 hours of productivity on a single charge, handing users the freedom to breeze through everyday tasks. A 180° hinge allows it to be fully opened and laid completely flat on a desk or table, making it easy to share ideas, visuals, samples and designs when working with friends, colleagues or clients.

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

Lightweight and flexible design

ASUS Chromebook CX1 embodies pure style with a distinctively trendy look and feel. The lightweight, 1.47 kg design also embraces sustainability, with recycled materials built in to make it more environmentally friendly. The 180° hinge allows the device to be laid completely flat on a desk, table or lap, making it easy to collaborate and share content with nearby friends or colleagues.

Resilience, built right in

With structural reinforcements to boost chassis strength, ASUS Chromebook 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 tests , 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.

1 Actual battery life depends on usage, specifications, applications and environment, among other factors.

2 ASUS Chromebook CX1 laptops undergo multiple laptop quality tests but are not subject to all tests stated. The testing data includes the requirements of both military-grade standards and ASUS quality tests.

Smart productivity

With its powerful up to quad-core Intel processor, ASUS Chromebook 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 ChromeOS — that ensure greater speed, stability and range for WiFi connections, helping users stay connected anywhere.

ASUS Chromebook CX1 is also superbly power-efficient, with a long-life battery designed to last for up to 12 hours on a single charge, empowering work or play throughout the day.

The best of ChromeOS

Combined with the full capabilities of Google Workspace and other productivity apps from Google Play , ASUS Chromebook 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 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 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.

3 ASUS Chromebook CX1 is certified with ASUS WiFi Master for ChromeOS. Devices certified with WiFi Master for ChromeOS feature WiFi 6 and offer enhanced WiFi stability when USB 3.2 Gen 2 interference is present, allowing users to stream smoothly when they are up to 225 meters away from a router.
