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

TAIPEI, Taiwan, Jun 8, 2022 — ASUS today announced ASUS Chromebook Flip CX5, which blends a new look with the powerful performance of up to the latest 12th Generation Intel® Core™ i7 processor and WiFi 6E connectivity – all in an attractive 16-inch form factor.

For expansive visuals in any scenario, this refreshed model features a three-sided NanoEdge display with a 16:10 aspect ratio to fit more screen into the chassis, while a Harmon Kardon-certified quad-speaker audio system provides impeccable sound. The stylish exterior features a Mineral Gray aluminum-alloy metal lid that provides refined aesthetics and a sleek, professional look. The design also embraces sustainability, with recycled materials incorporated to make it more environmentally friendly.

Built for the cloud, ASUS Chromebook Flip CX5 supports Google Play1 and the Chrome browser to make it easy for users to seamlessly stay in sync with favorite apps. With robust performance, connectivity, visuals and audio, ASUS Chromebook Flip CX5 brings incredible experiences to cloud-based work and entertainment.

Expansive visuals and creativity

A 360° ErgoLift hinge on ASUS Chromebook Flip CX5 can adjust the three-sided 16-inch NanoEdge display to any angle, delivering remarkable versatility on top of expansive visuals. The panel offers a 16:10 aspect ratio for a boost in vertical space compared with 16:9 panels, and the screen-to-body ratio is 87%2 for maximal screen area and immersive viewing — making the device ideal for creators and students alike.

ASUS Chromebook Flip CX5 also benefits from the option of a garaged stylus3 that’s the perfect tool to unleash creativity, handing the user the freedom to draft notes, create quick sketches or jot down ideas – whenever inspiration strikes. The stylus charges automatically whenever it’s stored in the garage, with a mere 15-second charge providing enough power for up to 45 minutes’ use.

The power to stay productive

With up to a 12th Generation Intel Core i7 processor, Intel Iris® Xe graphics and 16 GB of memory, ASUS Chromebook Flip CX5 delivers performance and responsiveness to empower users with ultimate productivity. Easy access to Google Workspace and other productivity apps on Google Play1 helps users breeze through projects, and a spacious PCIe® SSD provides fast-access storage.

ASUS Chromebook Flip CX5 also offers dual-band WiFi 6E (802.11ax), which includes a new 6 GHz band for strong, stable signals and superfast speeds, enabling online content to load in the blink of an eye. Its connectivity is made even better by ASUS WiFi Master for Chrome OS4 , which ensures greater speed, stability and range to help users stay connected anywhere. In addition, the Intel vPro® platform and Chrome Enterprise or Education Upgrade can be added on, enabling IT administrators to optimize cloud-first workflows and enterprise security or to tailor user experiences for teachers and students. For the toughness to stay productive from anywhere, ASUS Chromebook Flip CX5 meets the ultra-demanding MIL-STD 810H5 US military durability standards and passes multiple tests to ensure reliability. When taking pictures or videoconferencing, a Full HD (FHD) webcam enables high-quality visuals and can be easily hidden behind a retractable cover that is designed for privacy.

Impeccable sound

The innovative Harman Kardon-certified audio system on ASUS Chromebook Flip CX5 projects sound towards the user regardless of the current mode of use, enabling immersive listening in any scenario. Four built-in high-quality speakers with extra-large resonant chambers produce high-range and low-range frequencies without distortion, generating high-fidelity audio that is on par with much larger laptops. This caliber of audio provides surround-sound effects to keep users fully absorbed in their favorite music and movies.

The best of Google

ASUS Chromebook Flip CX5 is the gateway to empowering modern work and entertainment with the very best of Google. Users can enjoy full access to Google Play1 and can ask Google to do the work to enjoy hands-free entertainment. Chrome OS 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 12-month Google One6 trial subscription with 100 GB of cloud storage is available with purchase of an ASUS Chromebook Flip CX5 laptop.
