Announcing ASUS Chromebook Detachable CZ1

ASUS ZenBeam E2

TAIPEI, Taiwan, July 22, 2021 — ASUS today announced the tough, versatile ASUS Chromebook Detachable CZ1 for empowering students to achieve their full potential. The device is packed with protective features and built to military-grade standards, delivering durability for learning from anywhere. It offers a lay-flat free-angle adjustable stand cover and full-size keyboard with 1.5 mm key travel, plus an ErgoLift design and a garaged stylus — all to facilitate productivity, flexibility and comfort for students.

Ultimate rugged design

ASUS Chromebook Detachable CZ1 is built to easily withstand everyday knocks, bumps and drops. All four exterior edges and corners are protected by a tough wrap-around rubber trim, which reduces the impact of physical shocks to ensure critical components remain safe and sound. There is extra protective material on each of the four corners, and a shockproof cover provides an added layer of defense that keeps the laptop safe when accidental drops or mishaps occur. Also, a durable 3D-textured finish prevents scratches or fingerprints from showing.
To provide durability for any learning environment, ASUS Chromebook Detachable CZ1 offers structural reinforcements to boost chassis strength. It also meets next-level, industry-leading US MIL-STD 810H standards1 , which are more rigorous and demanding than ever before. In addition, it has passed stringent in-house testing — including panel-pressure, shock and drop tests — to ensure maximal toughness.

Versatile for enhanced learning experiences

The possibilities are limitless with the unparalleled versatility that ASUS Chromebook Detachable CZ1 offers. The detachable design of the stand cover and keyboard enhances productivity and entertainment in laptop, stand or tablet mode. The laptop’s innovative free-angle stand is designed to meet a wide range of student needs for study and play. The stand allows the device to be easily adjusted to lay flat and keeps it in a stable position, providing perfect viewing angles for web-browsing, watching videos, taking notes or for a range of other activities.
For more interactive ways of learning, ASUS Chromebook Detachable CZ1 features a stylus that enables quick, precise movements for unleashing creativity and productivity, so students can easily take notes, sketch or jot ideas down when they strike. The stylus also quickly and automatically charges when garaged, keeping it ready for use and providing a safe place to store it.
Dual cameras on ASUS Chromebook Detachable CZ1 combine to enrich the way students learn. An 8 MP world-facing camera on the back and a 2 MP camera on the front let students capture vivid, high-quality photos and videos.

Built with ergonomics and productivity in mind

The easily detachable keyboard and magnetic free-angle stand cover on ASUS Chromebook Detachable CZ1 facilitate productivity and transform it into a laptop that is perfect for distance learning or for working on homework, anywhere. The ErgoLift design, 1.5 mm key travel and full-size keyboard enable intuitive, comfortable typing experiences.
ASUS Chromebook Detachable CZ1 also delivers features to help students stay productive. A Full HD 10.1-inch multitouch display provides vivid visuals and intuitive input, and the screen is certified by TÜV Rheinland for low blue-light emissions, helping to protect students’ eyes from potential damage. Dual high-quality five-magnet stereo speakers generate high-fidelity audio, delivering a surround-sound effect and crisp, powerful audio for immersive experiences when listening to music and video streaming. Up to 11 hours of battery life on a single charge2 keeps the device going for a full day of classes and more — empowering students to enjoy uninterrupted learning and, later, entertainment.

The best of Google

To further empower education, ASUS Chromebook Detachable CZ1 unlocks the very best of Google, including full access to Google Play3. Chrome OS on the device offers the full power of Google Workspace, including Google productivity apps such as Gmail, Docs, Drive, Calendar, Meet and more, allowing users to collaborate quickly and seamlessly stay in sync with favorite apps. Also, a free 12-month Google One4 subscription with 100 GB of cloud storage is available with purchase of an ASUS Chromebook Detachable CZ1 laptop.
Automatic updates5 and built-in virus protection seamlessly keep ASUS Chromebook Detachable CZ1 laptops safe, secure and always up to date. The laptops are also built around the rock-solid security of a personal Google account, so all private documents, emails, photos and confidential data are kept safe at all times.
