|LAS VEGAS, January 6, 2020 — ASUS today announced the new ASUS Chromebook Flip C436, the latest in the ASUS Chromebook Flip family to pair a premium productivity experience with uncompromising performance.|

“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,” Josh Newman, Vice President, Client Computing Group General Manager, Mobile Innovation at Intel Corporation.

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 available. 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.
Co-engineered with Intel as part of Intel’s Project Athena innovation program, the ASUS Chromebook Flip C436 passed rigorous testing to achieve the program’s experience targets and hardware specifications, 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 runtime 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.
