ASUS has added a new laptop based on Chrome OS to the list, we are talking about the Asus Chromebook Flip CM3, a Chromebook OS product that goes to keep company with the other models presented by the company last autumn and which aims at that user group looking for an economic product for manage daily applications (without too many pretensions), obviously also looking at students.
ASUS Chromebook Flip CM3 (CM3200) is a compact laptop equipped with a 12-inch display; on board we find an inexpensive panel, characterized by a 1366x912p resolution (3: 2 format), stylus support, and a brightness of 220 cd/m2, a not exactly exciting solution which, however, allows you to easily manage most of the apps, also offering the possibility of taking notes on the screen for those who work or study.
Like all the products of the Flip family, the CM3200 can also count on a convertible design, decidedly neat and with rather small dimensions; this Chromebook has a thickness of 16.8mm and weighs only 1.14 kg, a feature that also makes it ideal for mobility.
Turning to the hardware platform, ASUS relies on a MediaTek 8183 SoC (8 cores), flanked by 4GB of LPDDR4X RAM and eMMC storage up to 64GB (unfortunately no SSD). The graphics subsystem is entrusted to the Mali-G72 MP3 GPU, while as regards expandability and connectivity, there is no lack of USB-C and WiFi AC.

ASUS Chromebook Flip CM3 price has been set at $39.99 and is now available to buy on the Amazon.com website.
