When Asus unveiled the Chromebook Flip C434 last week, the company explained that it would be a 14 inch convertible with a starting price around $570 and support for up to an Intel Core i7-8500Y processor, up to 8GB of RAM, and up to 128GB of storage.

What the company didn’t make clear was the release date. Now Google has filled in the blank: the Chromebook Flip C434 should be available in March, 2019.

Note that the entry-level model will likely have an Intel Core M3 Amber Lake processor and 4GB of RAM. But that should be enough to set it apart from entry-level Chromebooks with Intel Celeron chips or ARM-based processors.

The notebook features a 14 inch, 1920 x 1080 pixel touchscreen display and a 360 degree hinge and it’s designed to replace the 12.5 inch Chromebook Flip C302 in the Asus Chromebook lineup.

Weighing 3.2 pounds, it’s a bit heavier than its 2.7 pound predecessor, and it’s also a tad thicker (0.6 inches instead of 0.5 inches). I got a chance to check out the new Chromebook Flip at CES last week, and for the most part it feels like a laptop that you can also use as a tablet in a pinch, rather than a tablet with a laptop mode. But with Chrome OS still feeling largely like a laptop-first operating system, that’s probably not a bad thing.

It has a backlit keyboard, USB Type-A and Type-C ports, a headset jack, and a microSD card slot.

The notebook does have power and volume buttons on sides, where they’re easy to reach in tablet or notebook mode.

  1. Any announcement on specific specs for each model in the range yet? Seems that Asus are announcing the starting price (i.e. lowest spec price) but highest end specs (usually more). Just curious if you’ve heard anything?
