 Efficiency

When the ErgoLift hinge mechanism tilts the keyboard, it also creates a crucial extra ventilation area that lets more airflow around the chassis’ underside, so that it stays cool even when you are trying to meet those severe deadlines.

ASUS Chromebook Flip CM5 Review

Since my first Motorola back in the day, Android has always been my favorite OS. This is my first attempt at a Chromebook, which I’ve been excited to try for a while. I was initially concerned about performance and learning curve, but then I had a good reason to give it a try.

ASUS Chromebook Flip CM5 Review

I have two notebooks, one Dell and one HP, with the latter for remote work, and the other for personal use, finance, volunteer work, etc. I have been working as a freelance writer as a sideline, so why would I need yet another device? So I wanted a device totally separate from work and other digital activities in everyday life, one that was just for writing.

Beautiful design, fast, clear, wide keyboard – all very important, as I have large hands – I am so glad I chose this device. The screen is also good for touch, and the backlit keyboard is ideal for late-night work. Everything moved easily from my Google account to it., Overall, I am very satisfied with this device and appreciate the Chrome OS experience, it’s nice to get away from Windows for a bit.
