Watch the Asus ROG Phone 5 crack under pressure

Watch the Asus ROG Phone 5 crack under pressure

The Asus ROG Phone 5 is one of the most powerful phones you can buy today, but all that performance doesn't come cheap. You'll have to shell out more than $1,000 to get your hands on one, which makes durability that much more important. Asus didn't hold back on making its design as large and chunky as necessary to fit in a Snapdragon 888, 16GB of RAM, and dual 3,000mAh batteries at each end of the phone. Unfortunately, if you thought a phone as bulky as the ROG Phone 5 would hold up decently in a durability torture test, well — brace yourself.

We've been seeing a bit more of the ROG Phone 5, the Asus-branded gamer phone, in the leadup to its official announcement. Yesterday a chip supplier let slip that at least one model will be equipped with a staggering 18GB of memory.

Asus Chromebox 4 Review: A mini PC that packs a punch

It’s no secret that Chrome OS has been improving over the last several months. With skyrocketing sales contributing to increased polish into Google’s operating system, 2021 is shaping to be a good year for Chromebooks — and Chromeboxes, too. CTL’s CBx2 impressed us when we reviewed it, nailing the basics down at a reasonable price. That’s not the only new Chromebox in town.

Flip open one of Asus's sleek 14" Chromebooks for $329 ($200 off)

A Chromebook's a Chromebook no matter what the guts you put in it. Asus took that axiom and pushed it with its Chromebook Flip C433, a squared-off 2019 redesign of the C434. While the C433 went on deep discount early, not much hay has been made since. That is until now, as Best Buy is once again bringing it down to its best price yet.

ASUS finally has a software fix for phones losing HD Netflix support

Some folks using the new ASUS ROG Phone 3 are having issues playing back HD content in certain apps like Netflix. The cause, as some of our more savvy readers might expect, is an issue with Android's Widevine DRM system, with some phone owners reporting that their L1 Widevine state has been lost, relegating them to standard definition playback. ASUS has now fixed the problem with a software update after initially asking customers to send in their phones to get back HD playback.

The best cheap Chromebooks that are actually in stock right now

Chromebooks have been going in and out of stock over the past year, initially from the rise of remote work at the start of the COVID pandemic. Component shortages and remote schooling also resulted in fewer options being available, but as we head into 2021, there are some decent options in the $200-300 range.

All of the models we've selected are fast enough to handle at least a few Chrome tabs and applications running at once, and when they're available, we try to include models with large screens. We have a dedicated guide for the best Chromebooks overall, but this list is solely focused on budget options that are actually in stock right now.
