It may not be the most popular line of laptops, especially here in the Philippines, but Google Chromebook laptops are still around. The line-up gets another member with the new Chromebook Flip CM5 from ASUS.
ASUS Chromebook Flip CM5 buyers can choose between AMD Ryzen 3 3250C and Ryzen 5 3500C processors — both with integrated AMD Radeon graphics. You can pair either of them with up to 16GB of RAM and 256gb of NVMe SSD storage.
It may not be the most robust laptop OS around, but Chromebook users get to enjoy long battery life. In the case of the CM5’s 57Whr battery, users can expect the standard 10 hours of use before it needs charging.
The device is then wrapped inside an aluminum alloy body with mineral gray and obsidian velvet textures.
Some of the key highlights here are the support for Google Stadia and NVIDIA GeForce Now cloud gaming services. This lets you game on this budget, not-for-gaming laptop.
