Reviews for the Asus Chromebook Flip C436FA, i5-10210U

80% Asus Chromebook Flip C436 review: premium looks, high performance
Source: T3 English
If you're in the market for a premium-level Chromebook – one that has the specs to match something running Windows, say – then you can't do much better than the Asus Chromebook Flip C436 at the moment. However, it does have its weaknesses as well.

Asus Chromebook Flip C436 review: Elegance, electrified
Source: Android Authority English
Asus sells the Core i3 model for $799. That’s a hefty starting point. The Core i5 model costs a stiff $999. The device has an elegant design, a solid display, outstanding performance, and plenty of other things going for it. To me, the biggest detractor is battery life. I expect Chromebooks to deliver 10 hours at a minimum and the Flip C436 just doesn’t get there.

70% Asus Chromebook Flip C436 review: Flippin' powerful, but flippin' pricey too
Source: Pocket Lint English
A premium Chromebook with design appeal - but its high-end spec isn't as useful in Chrome OS as a comparable Windows machine and, therefore, it's hard to really recommend. We'd suggest the lower-power Asus C434 instead.

Nevertheless, the Asus Chromebook Flip C436 hardware itself is solid, lacking only a few of the finishing touches of the very best laptops. But, at this price, it’s a tough sell. We recommend saving money and opting for a cheaper Chromebook, or spending a little more for a far superior laptop that doesn’t suffer the Chrome OS compatibility issues.

80% ASUS Chromebook Flip C436 review: Too good to miss, too expensive to buy
Source: Android Central English
While I'm a fan of having a beefy i3 or i5 processor in a Chromebook — and having 8 GB of RAM is a luxury I wish every Chromebook had in 2020 — apart from developers and the most power-hungry of power-users, this is a Chromebook that was made to tout the new Project Athena specification more than it was tailored towards actual buyers. The fingerprint sensor is a nice upgrade and the speakers are better this go-around, but until stocks of the C434 are depleted — which might not be long the way Chromebooks have been selling out the last two months — last year's model at $550 just makes more sense for regular users who want a nice-looking, good-performing Chromebook to rely on.

79% Chromebook Flip C436 review: ASUS missed the sweet spot
Source: Engadget English
ASUS is back with another solid Chromebook, but the Flip C436 isn’t as easy to recommend as its predecessors. It’s well-designed, fast, and has a great keyboard and solid screen. But mediocre battery life and a very high entry price make it hard to recommend unless you can use Chrome OS for all your computing needs.

The Chromebook Flip C436 is a great laptop with an attractive, lightweight design, colorful display and good performance. But it's not quite as successful as the Chromebook Flip C434 before it. Part of the problem is pricing. The $799 starting price is a lot to ask of people, many of whom flee to Chrome OS as a refuge from pricier Mac and Windows 10 laptops.

80% Asus Chromebook Flip C436 review: Strictly for Chrome OS converts
Source: CNet English
Basically, if you can live with the battery life and don't mind paying $800 or $1,000 for a two-in-one Chromebook, the Asus Chromebook Flip C436 doesn't disappoint. As Chrome OS matures, the extra processing performance is certainly nice to have as is having that performance in an attractive design. This really is for full-time Chrome users, however, so if you just need something for part-time use, you've got lots of other, less expensive options.

65% Asus Chromebook Flip C436 Review: Pricey, Premium Chromebook
Source: The Verge English
That’s why I’m so disappointed by the battery life, because I think it turns a Chromebook that could’ve been the best in its class to one that is just okay. Starting at $649, you can get the Pixelbook Go, which has a lower-powered processor but also performs quite well and has a much better battery life. You’re mostly giving up the convertible design and the fingerprint sensor, and I’d be hard-pressed to call those upgrades that are worth $150 and a few hours of juice. If you’re not wed to Chrome OS, you can also get quite good Windows convertibles close to this price, including the Lenovo Yoga C740. Fortunately, Asus is still going to be selling the C434, which offers a similar build, the ability to flip into a tablet, and some of the best battery life you can get in a Chromebook.

Asus Chromebook Flip C436 Review: The First Of The Next Generation
Source: Chrome Unboxed English
As I said in the intro, there’s both good and bad, here. And it all comes at a very tough time in the current Chromebook story. We’re right at the beginning of a new generation of Chromebooks, so there will be release after release this year to sway your opinion of which Chromebook is the right one for you. Looking only at a spec sheet, it would seem this latest offering from ASUS has it all, but I’d urge you to use a bit of caution.

One thing is for sure, however, and that is the fact that we all came away quite impressed by the feel, look, and performance of this new flagship Chromebook from ASUS. It is a step in the right direction for them and in every way this Chromebook is the proper successor the excellent Flip C434 deserved. We can’t wait until the end of March when ASUS gets around to shipping this stellar new addition to the Chromebook lineup.

This is premium territory space from the company and one that we approve of. We look forward to having a further play when the laptop comes out in March. From what we've seen, if you're about to buy a new "premium" Chromebook, this certainly warrants a closer look.

Asus Chromebook Flip C436 hands-on review
Source: Laptop Mag English
The Asus Chromebook Flip C436 is pretty impressive for a Chromebook. It’s got an eye-catching design, pretty display and immense versatility by way of its 360-degree hinges. And it’s even got a fingerprint reader, all in one of the lightest, slimmest 14-inch Chromebook chassis. However, I wish the laptop’s keyboard had a bit more travel. But all things withstanding, the Chromebook Flip C436 is ready for its time in the spotlight.

Intel UHD Graphics 620: Integrated GPU (GT2, 24 EUs) found on some Kaby-Lake-Refresh CPU models (15 W ULV series). Technically identical to the previous Kaby-Lake GPU called HD Graphics 620.

Modern games should be playable with these graphics cards at low settings and resolutions. Casual gamers may be happy with these cards.

» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Graphics Cards and the corresponding Benchmark List.


i5-10210U: Comet Lake based low power quad-core processor (technically identical to Whiskey Lake and still produced in 14nm++). The CPU cores can clock between 1.6 and 4.2 GHz (all 4 cores 3.9 GHz max.) with HyperThreading (8 threads). The integrated memory controller supports DDR4-2666 and using cTDP up/down the performance can be adjusted by the OEM (10 - 25 Watt possible, 15W default). Compared to the faster i5-10510U, the level 3 cache was reduced from 8 to 6 MB.» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.

Above all, this display size is used for subnotebooks, ultrabooks and convertibles. For all three types, this size is quite large. The biggest variety of subnotebooks is represented with this size.

Large display-sizes allow higher resolutions. So, details like letters are bigger. On the other hand, the power consumption is lower with small screen diagonals and the devices are smaller, more lightweight and cheaper.

This weight is typical for big tablets, small subnotebooks, ultrabooks and convertibles with a 10-11 inch display-diagonal.


Asus: ASUSTeK Computer Incorporated, a Taiwanese multinational company, produces motherboards, graphics cards, optical drives, PDAs, computer monitors, notebook computers, servers, networking products, mobile phones, computer cases, computer components, and computer cooling systems. The company's 2007 revenues reached US$6.9 billion. ASUS also produces components for other manufacturers. The Eee PC initiated the netbook boom in 2008.

In the notebook sector, Asus had a global market share of about 11% from 2014-2016, making it the fourth largest laptop manufacturer. In the smartphone sector, Asus is not among the Top 5 and has only a small market share (as of 2016).


75.64%: This rating is not convincing. The laptop is evaluated below average, this is not really a recommendation for purchase.
