ASUS’s newest Chromebook Flip C436 introduces an eye-catching and
elegant convertible form factor, featuring a frameless NanoEdge touch
display that’s designed to maximize screen size in the smallest form
factor possible. The C436 is housed in a durable yet lightweight
magnesium alloy chassis, which measures only 13-inches diagonally at a
weight of only 2.4 lbs – perfect for on-the-go productivity.

The ASUS Chromebook Flip C436 is verified by Intel’s Project Athena
innovation program and co-engineered for mobile performance. It brings
unparalleled power in a convertible and ultra-portable form factor by
integrating 10th Gen Intel® Core™ processors with 16GB of RAM, a 512GB
SSD, and cutting-edge Intel® Wi-Fi 6 (Gig+) connectivity.

“The exceptionally thin and light Chromebook Flip C436 is one of the
first Chromebooks enabled by co-engineering efforts between ASUS, Google
and Intel through Intel’s Project Athena innovation program. Powered by
10th Gen Intel® Core™ processors, the real-world experiences
we’re delivering across instant wake, responsiveness and worry-free
battery life that are designed to match the expectations of ambitious,
on-the-move people who turn to their premium laptop to get things done,”
said Josh Newman, Vice President, Client Computing Group General
Manager, Mobile Innovation at Intel Corporation.

With users in mind, the C436 adds premium extras like an integrated
fingerprint sensor for easy unlock, four omnidirectional speakers for
high-quality surround sound in any of its convertible modes, USI stylus
support for open pen input, and a wide variety of ports for peripheral
options.

The Premium Chromebook Experience – Simplistic Elegance

The ASUS Chromebook Flip C436 is elegantly designed with a magnesium
alloy chassis that measures only 13.7mm thick and weighs just 2.4 lbs –
it’s the thinnest and lightest 14-inch Chromebook available1.
The C436 is capped off by two unique finishes: an iridescent Aerogel
White, which changes color as you view it from different angles, and an
understated Transparent Silver.

The Chromebook Flip C436 is fully convertible with an impressive Full HD
touch display, and can be used in a clamshell configuration for a more
traditional workflow, standing up like a tent for the best viewing
angles, or closed over on itself in tablet mode to use with a USI
stylus. The C436 also takes advantage of a frameless NanoEdge display to
maximize screen real estate in the smallest form factor possible. Thanks
to the trimmed-down bezels, the C436’s 14-inch screen enables an 85%
screen-to-body ratio that comes in a footprint no larger than the
average 13-inch notebook. And because the display boasts a 1920×1080
native resolution and 100% coverage of the sRGB gamut, the C436 is
perfectly tailored to both work and entertainment.

Unprecedented Performance

Co-engineered with Intel as part of Intel’s Project Athena innovation
program, the ASUS Chromebook Flip C4362 passed rigorous
testing to achieve the program’s experience targets and hardware
specifications3, ensuring it consistently delivers the
responsiveness, instant wake, and real-world battery life that ambitious
people need to focus from anywhere. The C436 incorporates some of the
fastest hardware available in a Chromebook, and is armed with up to a
10th Gen Intel® Core™ i7 Processor with Intel UHD graphics. It also
offers up to a 16 GB LPDDR3 memory and up to a 512GB M.2 SSD. A
dual-band Wi-Fi 6 radio and Bluetooth 5.0 cover wireless connectivity,
while a pair of USB 3.2 Gen 1 Type-C ports handle add-on peripherals. A
microSD card slot can handle memory cards as large as 2TB, and the
Chromebook also offers the option to use Google One’s cloud storage plan
for even more memory storage.

User-Centric Design with All-Day Battery Life

To power top-notch performance specs, the ASUS Chromebook Flip C436’s
three-cell, 42Wh all-day battery can deliver up to 12 hours of runtime4
as you browse the web, write emails, or work in a spreadsheet.

The C436 offers a full-sized backlit keyboard that’s both pleasant and
accurate to type on, with an extended 1.2mm of travel on each keystroke.
The convertible form factor means you can flip the display into tablet
mode and start writing or drawing with any USI-compatible stylus on the
C436’s touch display, which supports up to 4,096 levels of pressure to
convey your vision on-screen.

A fingerprint sensor built into the keyboard enables a seamless unlock
experience and another layer of device security. On top of its automatic
updates and built-in resilience against malware and viruses, the C436’s
Chrome OS benefits from Google’s diligence about enforcing two-step
verification, checking for third-party app access, logging device
sessions, and alerting you about security issues.

Audio is delivered via an audio combo jack or the C436’s omnidirectional
four-speaker array – the Harman Kardon-certified speaker setup produces
crisp audio with plenty of volume, regardless of how the screen is
positioned.
