Reviews for the Asus Chromebook Flip CX5 CX5500FEA-E60050

80% Asus Chromebook Flip CX5 (CX5500) review: The best of the big-screen Chromebooks
Source: Expert Reviews English
It’s easy to fall into the trap of seeing Chromebooks as secondary computers that you’ll mostly use casually in the living room or while you’re out on the move. The Flip CX5 shows it doesn’t have to be that way. It’s great for browsing, speedy, versatile and ideal for study and hard work. Sure, we’d like to see a brighter screen and a slightly richer sound, but what you’ve got here is great for the money. If you’re interested or invested in Google’s web-based ecosystem and you want a bigger screen, this is the Chromebook to buy.

80% Asus Chromebook Flip CX5 (CX5500) review

The Asus Flip CX5 Chromebook is a mixed bag. Its Tiger Lake processor ensures that things run fast and smooth for the vast majority of activities, although I did experience some odd problems with some games. Battery life is also good, with around ten hours from a single charge, plus the large screen is a nice size for working on documents, spreadsheets and streaming content. That being said, the screen is too dim to use outside on a bright day, plus the reflective nature of touchscreens can also cause problems in that environment. While the keyboard is decent, the small keys on the number pad make it feel too compromised to be useful, especially when it spoils the Chromebook ethos of simplicity by skewing the design off to one side. Worst of all is the rough edges around the edges of the keyboard plate, which feel like a weak point in the construction and could quickly become an issue. If you want power and a large screen, then the Flip CX5 delivers, but it does so with some curious caveats. One to try before you buy if you can.

79% Asus Chromebook Flip CX5 review: A sturdy 15.6-inch convertible Chromebook
Source: Zdnet.com English
The Asus Chromebook Flip CX5 is a robust Chromebook with a large screen and a very serviceable keyboard. However, the 250-nits screen will make outdoor viewing challenging, and the speakers are disappointing. The Core i3 model is affordable at £599.99 (inc. VAT), but the Core i5 specification, which costs over £700/$800, will come up against any number of fully-fledged Windows laptops, which are arguably more versatile and definitely more widespread in the workplace.
