ASUS LAUNCHES CHROMEBOOK CX9 WITH INTEL TIGER LAKE CPU

The ASUS CX9 is one of the most premium consumer Chromebooks you can buy today. With Intel’s latest 11th gen Tiger Lake processors, lots of RAM, and several advanced features, this thing is a power user’s dream. We’ve already reviewed this beast of a Chromebook and came away incredibly impressed with the best ASUS Chromebook in years. It revealed three models at the event of CES 2021 back in January this year, and it appears that the company has been pushing the lines of innovation to newer horizons. The Chromebook Flip CX5 is one of the three released devices, and it’s nothing short of a dazzling workhorse. Next up is the Chromebook Flip CM5 and this unit is also something to write home about, with just one substantial flaw seeping into reality, and that is its 250-nits screen brightness.

Moving on, that leaves us with the last unveiled device of the global event: the ASUS Chromebook CX9. At first glance, this machine has promised to pack all the bells and whistles and is unlike any other Chromebook ever made.
