Chromebook Flip CX5 (CX5501) Review

Chromebook Flip CX5 (CX5501) runs cloud gaming and is flexible and convenient for work. I touched ASUS' new Chromebook " Chromebook Flip CX5 (CX5501)". The biggest feature is that it is a model that is conscious of cloud gaming. I felt that the possibility of cloud gaming x Chromebook as an alternative to expensive gaming notebooks has become a reality.

The price starts from $799, and the model I touched this time is $820. The release date is October 26th. It's a bit expensive for a Chromebook, but if PC games work with it, maybe it's an ant?

Large screen and keyboard

Since it is equipped with a fan, it can be entrusted with reasonably powerful work.

The hinge is solid, and the keyboard tilts 3 degrees when open, so heat dissipation is good.

And as the name Flip suggests, this way of opening is also OK (tent style). It supports multi-touch, so it can be used like a tablet.

The touch operation is also good. If you have a stylus pen, it will be easier to take notes.

What is your experience with the game?

I couldn't take a picture, but I played the cloud version of Genshin Impact provided by GeForce NOW. When I set the refresh rate to 60 fps and set the image quality to high, I ran it all the way through, and there was no problem at all. " Cloud is amazing! "I was surprised.

The benefits of choosing the cloud version include the low cost of the PC itself and the speed of starting the game. Although it is an alpha version, there is also Steam for Chrome OS that allows you to access Steam with Chromebook, and it was comfortable to feel that Chromebook as a game machine might be an ant.

Choosing a Chromebook for Gaming

I think there is, this choice. For example, if you already have the main PC and are looking for a laptop for gaming, it could be a reasonable and smart option. The cloud environment and applications will continue to evolve, and it can be said that this is a genre with room for growth.
