Reviews for the Asus Chromebook Flip CX5601, i5-1235U

ASUS Chromebook CX5601 review: bigger isn’t always better
Source: Chrome Unboxed English
When a company makes a device that looks similar to an older one and simply increases the size a bit, you just expect the largeness to make room for better hardware. In this case, it just didn’t. I’d seriously doubt anyone would notice a performance bump over the more-attractive black and white CX5 and I know for certain that the keyboard, trackpad and speakers are all just as good in that model as well. In the end, this Chromebook just feels like a sidestep and in this price range – $649 MSRP – there are simply better devices out there to buy. Yeah, it gets updates until June of 2030, but that’s true of a bunch of Chromebooks out there. For this one, I’d tell you to skip it unless you are really into ASUS Chromebooks or really wanted the CX5 and can’t find one anywhere. Everyone else should probably keep looking.

16.00":

15-inch display variants are the standard and are used for more than half of all laptops.

The reason for the popularity of mid-sized displays is that this size is reasonably easy on the eyes, often allows high resolutions and thus offers rich details on the screen, yet does not consume too much power and the devices can still be reasonably compact - simply the standard compromise.
