With robust security, convenient features, the full power of G Suite and access to millions of Android apps on Google Play, the new ASUS Chromebook series is the ideal choice for anyone who's always on the go.

ASUS Chromebook C423 and C523: Ultra-compact NanoEdge design

ASUS Chromebook C423 and C523 feature 14-inch and 15.6-inch ASUS NanoEdge anti-glare displays, with up to FHD (1920 x 1080) resolution and ultra-narrow side bezels — just 5.8mm on ASUS Chromebook C423 — that maximize the screen area for immersive visuals while minimizing the footprint. Touchscreen options are also available, with 10-point multi-touch capability for an even more intuitive experience.

These models also feature a versatile and durable 180° lay-flat hinge for easy sharing of screen contents with friends or colleagues. The hinge is subjected to a grueling 20,000-cycle open-and-close test to ensure long-term reliability.
