ASUS Announces New Chromebook Powered by Intel’s Core Ultra Processors
Before the start of 2024, Intel revealed its all-new Core Ultra lineup of processors. Joining the excitement is ASUS, which announced the first Chromebook to be powered by one of these AI-focused chips – the ExpertBook CX54 Chromebook Plus.
ASUS sets a high bar with the different configurations expected to be available. While pricing and availability details have not been shared yet, Chrome Unboxed has published a hands-on video with the upcoming Chromebook.
The design of the new CX54 Chromebook Plus is similar to the ASUS Chromebook CX9, with a hinge that lifts the keyboard into a more ergonomic position once opened. Robby from Chrome Unboxed praised the design and noted that ASUS has tackled the common issue of excessive flex seen in many Chromebooks.
The upcoming Chromebook also boasts a wide range of ports including dual USB-A ports, a full-size HDMI port, dual USB-C (Thunderbolt 4) ports, a microSD card slot, a 3.5mm headphone jack, and a Kensington Lock. This makes it a direct competitor to the HP Dragonfly Pro Chromebook, with the major differences being in display brightness and the choice of a haptic trackpad.
With CES 2024 just around the corner, ASUS is expected to reveal pricing and availability information soon. Tech enthusiasts are looking forward to getting their hands on the new ExpertBook CX54 Chromebook Plus and assessing how it compares to other premium Chromebooks in the market.
