ASUS just debuted another Chrome OS device, the Chromebook C425, that makes use of an Intel Core m3 CPU. It’s basically a clamshell version of the Chromebook Flip C434, introduced earlier this year,
The newcomer starts at $500 on Amazon and it comes sans touchscreen or 360 degree hinge, which the flippable version had. It’s a rather compact offering, at 2.9 pounds and it brings a 14 inch Full HD display with narrow bezels. There’s also 8 GB of RAM on board, 64 GB of eMMC storage and an Intel Core m3-8100Y processor.
There’s a backlit keyboard on the mix, a 6 inch touchpad and a 180 degree hinge, that lets you fold the notebook flat. Specs include a microSD card slot and audio jack, too.Connectivity is not half bad, with two USB-C ports, an USB Type-A port and a card reader. There are alternatives out there, like the Chromebook Flip C435, which is priced at $530 or so on Amazon.
We expect a showcasing of the product at IFA 2019 in Berlin.
