Construction – Chromebook C433
The compact ASUS Chromebook Flip C433 features a precision-crafted aluminum-alloy chassis finished with elegant diamond-cut anodized edges, measuring 16.5 mm thin and weighing 1.5 kg. The four-sided NanoEdge design enables its 14-inch FHD display to fit into a chassis that’s as small as most 13-inch laptops, giving it a more compact footprint.
The precision-engineered 360° ErgoLift hinge on ASUS Chromebook Flip C433 has a silky-smooth action that holds the display securely at any angle, allowing it to be instantly flipped for work in laptop mode, presenting slides in stand mode, sharing content in tent mode, watching a movie in tablet mode — or anything in between. In addition, the hinge lifts and tilts the keyboard into the perfect typing position when the display is rotated into laptop mode.
The full-size backlit keyboard has an impressive 1.4 mm key travel, making typing more comfortable and more accurate. Additional control is provided by the large touchpad with palm rejection technology and multitouch gesture support.
