The new Asus Chromebook Flip C433 is a convertible laptop with a 14 inch full HD display, an Intel Amber Lake-Y processor, and a 360-degree hinge that lets you use the computer in laptop, tablet, tent, or stand modes.
The key differences are in the design: the new model has side-firing speakers on the left and right sides where they won’t be obscured if you’re using the computer in tablet mode. Corners also look a little more square-like.
According to the Asus comparison tool, the new model is also a tiny bit larger and heavier than the Chromebook Flip C434, but the differences are pretty slight. A bigger difference may be the display: the Asus Chromebook Flip C433 has one that supports 45 percent NTSC color gamut, while the C434 supports 72 percent NTSC color gamut.
Other specs are largely the same, including:
- CPU options: Intel Core m3-8100Y/Core i5-8200Y/Core i7-8500Y
- Memory: Up to 8GB of LPDDR3-1866 MHz (onboard)

- Ports: 2 x USB 3.1 Gen 1 Type-C, 1 x USB 3.1 Gen 1 Type-A, Headset jack

Both models weigh about 3.2 pounds and measure about 0.6 inches thick.
