A new Chromebook by Asus is ready to hit the market, but this time we are talking about one that uses a processor made by AMD and comes with a list of specs and features that recommend it as "the next powerhouse built for creativity."

The new Asus Chromebook Flip CM5 (CM5500) is powered by up to an AMD Ryzen 5 3500C processor with integrated Radeon graphics, alongside up to 16 GB DDR4 memory and 512 GB of SSD storage space. Other highlights include Wi-Fi 6 with Asus WiFi Stabilizer tech, a gaming-oriented keypad with orange color-blocked WASD keycaps, support for both NVIDIA GeForce NOW and Google Stadia, dual-speakers by Harman Kardon, as well as a three-sided NanoEdge display. The lid features a Mineral Gray texture and the palm-rest area provides a silky-smooth feel thanks to the Obsidian Velvet material.

In addition to the above, it is also worth mentioning that the 57 Wh battery can provide up to 10 hours of autonomy. More details about availability, hardware configurations, and prices should come out soon, so stay tuned.

Although I have been writing about new software and hardware for almost a decade, I consider myself to be old school. I always enjoy listening to music on CD or tape instead of digital files and I will not even get into the touchscreen vs physical keys debate. However, I also enjoy new technology, as I now have the chance to take a look at the future every day. I joined the Notebookcheck crew back in 2013 and I have no plans to leave the ship anytime soon.
