Too expensive for the performance offered - The Asus Chromebook Flip C434TA in review
Asus installs a 14-inch display in a case that is approximately the size of a 13.3-inch device. The Chromebook Flip 14 C434TA's slim, compact case has two USB Type-C ports. These are used to power the device. In addition, both ports serve as video outputs (DisplayPort via USB-C; this requires a separately available adapter).
The computer is powered by a passively cooled Amber Lake generation Core m3 processor that delivers enough computing power for office and Internet applications. The available storage space is not too abundant at 64 GB (eMMC storage). An expansion would be possible by means of a microSD card. Thanks to the integration of the Google Play Store, Chromebook users have access to countless Android apps.
The main problem of the Asus Chromebook Flip is its price or rather the shortcomings it reveals despite its quite high price level. For prices starting at 640 Euros (~$710), you can obtain a convertible that comes with an unconvincing screen. The brightness and contrast of the display are too low for a device in the current price range. In addition, the screen turned out to be too unevenly illuminated. Moreover, the storage space offered is considerably limited.
