The latest Chromebook by Asus, namely the Flip C434, features a 360-degree hinge and a 14-inch full HD IPS NanoEdge touchscreen display, various processor choices by Intel going as high as the Core i7-8500Y, as well as up to 8 GB of memory and up to 128 GB of eMMC internal storage.

Those looking for a mid-range Chromebook don't have many choices at their disposal, so the new Flip C434 by Asus will not have many competitors. This new Chrome OS-driven portable has a convertible design, a generous 14-inch touchscreen display, and a 360-degree hinge that allows for a few different modes of use.

In addition to the all-metal construction, the Asus Chromebook Flip C434 uses the NanoEdge display technology that is well-known thanks to the ZenBook lineup of premium ultrabooks. By using it, Asus managed to fit a 14-inch display in a 13-inch chassis, reducing the side bezels to less than 0.5 inches. The full-size backlit chicklet keyboard has a 1.4 mm key travel and provides a comfortable experience for long typing sessions.

The list of hardware specs and features includes the following three processor choices: Intel Core m3-8100Y, Intel Core i5-8200Y, and the Intel Core i7-8500Y. In addition to these dual-core chips, there are also up to 128 GB of eMMC storage, up to 8 GB of memory, WiFi 802.11ac and Bluetooth 4.0 connectivity, a total of three USB 3.1 ports (two Type-C and one Type-A), all juiced up by a 48 Wh battery.

The Chromebook Flip C434 weighs 3.2 pounds and measures 12.6 x 8 x 0.6 inches. It will hit the market in more configurations "in the coming months," according to Asus. The price and launch dates will depend on the region, so we will hear more about this Chromebook once the first launches will be announced.

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.
