Like the Chromebook 715, the Chromebook Flip C436 is another expensive Chromebook from Asus. Announced at CES 2020 in January, the Flip C436 is now available to purchase in the US. Starting at US$799.99, Asus is currently offering the Flip C436 with Core i3 or Core i5 Comet Lake-U processors.
Alex Alderson,

The Chromebook Flip C436 certainly looks the part, with its lightweight magnesium alloy chassis complemented by a 14-inch NanoEdge FHD touch display that has pleasingly small bezels. Specifically, the display is bordered by 4.9 mm bezels on three sides, with its slightly thicker bottom bezel coming in at 7 mm.

The Flip C436 measures 12.6 x 8.1 x 0.5-inches and weighs 1.1 kg. A 42 Wh battery is onboard, as are two USB 3.2 Gen 1 Type-C ports, a 3.5 mm jack and a microSD card reader.

While Asus announced thee processor options at CES, it has only released two SKUs at the time of writing. The entry-level model, which retails for US$799.99, includes a Core i3-10110U processor, 8 GB of RAM and 128 GB of storage. If you want more storage or more RAM, then you will need to spend US$999.99 on the Core i5-10210U model, which comes with 16 GB of RAM and 512 GB of storage.

The Flip C436 is likely to be considered by most people as rather expensive for a Chromebook. However, the Flip C436 is considerably cheaper than the comparably-equipped Google Pixelbook Go.
