Asus is among the better-known Chromebook manufacturers, and it's not too long ago that it launched the Chromebook Flip C436. And now the touchscreen-equipped convertible is already discounted by $100 on Amazon and Best Buy ahead of Black Friday. You can get the i3 128GB/8GB version for $700 and the i5 512GB/16GB variant for $800.
Asus revealed its new flagship Chromebook at CES earlier this month, the Flip C436. Compared to the previous C434, it offers a thinner design, significant processor upgrades, and more storage. However, if you were hoping Asus would stay in the ~$550 price range, I have some bad news for you.
The Chromebook Flip C434 is Asus' flagship Chrome OS device at the moment, released in mid-2019 as a follow-up to the popular C302. Now it's time for the C434 to be replaced, as Asus has announced the new Chromebook Flip C436 at CES 2020.
