You’ll also find an included pen to draw on the Asus Chromebook’s 1080p touchscreen, not to mention Harmon Kardon speakers to help fuel TV marathons. The system is fairly light for the size at 3.1lbs, although the 720p webcam won’t thrill frequent video chatters.
The catch is the price. Asus currently lists the Chromebook Flip CX5400 for $1,049.99, and there aren’t currently any downrange models. That makes it a better value (in pure hardware, at least) than many similarly-priced conventional laptops. If you’re thinking of buying a Chromebook for Steam gaming or just want a no-compromise Chrome OS device, this might be on your short list.
