As we note in our Asus Chromebook Flip C436 review, we love its sleek design, vivid 1080p display, and fast performance. The Chromebook Flip endured 9 hours and 25-minutes on our Laptop Mag battery test which is impressive. We give the Asus Chromebook Flip C436 an overall rating of 4 out of 5 stars and the Editor's Choice award cosign.

When it comes to design, Chromebook Flip C436 is a clean-looking machine. It features a magnesium alloy chassis with an ivory lid, accented with both a Chrome and Asus logo. The Chromebook's rectangular hinges flip 360-degrees which makes it easy to transform from laptop to tablet, stand or tent mode for viewing.

Performance-wise Google's lightweight Chrome operating system running on Intel's Core i3-10110U and 8GB of RAM SoC is great for day-to-day tasks. In one test, we loaded 22 Chrome tabs, four of which played 1080p YouTube videos, with no issues. Even when we opened the Play Store to download a free Android game, there wasn't a hint of lag. In our lab, on the Geekbench 5.0 overall performance test, the Chromebook Flip C436 notched a score of 2,699. It beat competitors like the Google PixelBook Go (1,356, Core i5-8200Y) and Samsung Galaxy Chromebook (2,232, Core i5-10210U).

Weighing in at 2.5 pounds and 12.6 x 8.1 x 0.5 inches, the Chromebook Flip 436 is one of the sleekest 14-inch laptops we've tested. It's nearly on par with the size and weight of competitors like the Google Pixelbook Go (12.2 x 8.1 x 0.5 inches, 2.3 pounds) and Galaxy Chromebook (11.9 x 8 x 0.4 inches, 2.3 pounds). It's slimmer and lighter than its forthcoming successor, the Chromebook Flip C536EA (14.09 x 9.5 x 0.7 inches, 4.2 pounds). Port-wise, the Chromebook Flip C436 is equipped with two USB-C ports, a microSD slot, and a 3.5mm headphone jack.
