Asus has quietly added three new Chromebooks with 11.6 inch displays and entry-level specs to its lineup.

The new Asus Chromebook CX1 (CX1101) is listed under the company’s line of “at home” products and features Intel Gemini Lake processor options, but it still a MIL-STD-810H tested durable design. Meanwhile the new Asus Chromebook CR1 (CR1100) and Chromebook Flip CR1 (CR1100) convertible are part of the company’s education or “for students” line and have newer Intel Jasper Lake processor options.

Asus Chromebook Flip CR1 (CR1100)

As the names suggest, the Chromebook Flip CR1 is a convertible model with a touchscreen display, a 360-degree hinge that allows the screen to fold all the way back for use in tablet mode, and optional support for a display that features pen input. The standard Chromebook CR1 lacks the convertible tablet-style design, but it’s roughly the same size and shape as its sibling.

The Asus Chromebook CX1 is a tiny bit thinner and lighter than the others, but it also has an older, less powerful processor.

Here’s a run-down of key specs for all three models:
