There’s USB-C, a touchscreen display, and up to 10 hours of battery life.
Hot on the heels of HP’s new Chromebook x360 14, Asus is also unveiling a new Chromebook today in the form of the Asus Chromebook C423. The C423 arrived with no fanfare or proper announcement from Asus, but even so, it looks like it could be one of the better mid-range Chromebooks this holiday shopping season.
The C423 measures in at 16.1mm and weighs 1.2kg. There’s an "aluminum-finished" lid to give it a bit of polish and a 180-degree hinge that’s rated for 20,000 open and closes. Asus has packed in a 14-inch 1920 x 1080 NanoEdge touchscreen display with surprisingly thin bezels.
When it comes to ports, you’re looking at two USB-C and two USB-A ports along with a 3.5mm headphone jack, and a microSD card slot. There’s also Wi-Fi 802.11ac and Bluetooth 4.0. Other specs include your choice between an Intel Celeron or Pentium processor, 4 or 8GB of RAM, and an HD webcam.
Exact pricing and availability for the Asus Chromebook C423 are still up in the air, but we’ll update this post accordingly once that info is announced.
