Reviews for the Asus Chromebook Flip CX5 CX5500FEA

Overall, I’m just so pleased with this Chromebook. It looks great, feels great, is fun to use, and it outperforms any Chromebook I’ve ever used by a long shot. Sure, I’d like the screen to be a bit brighter, but the complete package on offer here is simply too good to get overly bothered by that. I’d reckon that if ASUS had put a bright panel in this and kept the $569 price tag, I’d be ready to label it the best overall Chromebook you can buy right now. It just gets so much right and it has me excited to see what future Tiger Lake Chromebooks bring to the table the rest of this year and very excited to be able to easily recommend picking up this CX5 if a bigger Chromebook is your thing.
