ASUS Chromebook Flip C434 (8th Gen Intel Core m3-8100Y, 8GB RAM, 32GB eMMC) $680 Delivered @ Amazon AU

90

The processor in this Chromebook is now a couple years old, and 32GB storage is laughable, but it's a really solid device with excellent build quality. An elegant fanless Chromebook.

Processor: Intel m3-8100Y processor, 1.1GHz base processor speed, 2 cores
Operating System: Chrome OS
Display: 14 inch touch FHD (1920x1080) display
Memory & Storage: 8GB RAM | Storage: 32GB eMMC

I own one of these with only 4GB of RAM, and I find it to be excellent.

    Would it be possible to upgrade this to an SSD? From what I know eMMC is slower than an SSD by a big factor. Other than that this looks awesome.

      I doubt it, unfortunately. Best options for expanding storage are an SD card or a fast external drive (it can support USB 3.2).

      Got this for my son's schoolwork.

      Considering now in remote learning, glad we got this instead of the 11" duet which we were tossing up between.

      Indeed, would get this - lower price and ssd to boot!

      Had the Flex 5 i3/4GB/64 for the last 8 months or so (bought during the great Cole Gift Card debcle of 2020 :p ) . It's my primary notebook for both recreation and WFH. It's connected to a Dell WD15 dock so I've got a triple monitor setup (2 ext + intenral - all @ FHD) and it does everything I need it to do. That being said my needs are meagre, most of the stuff I do now is web based and I do run WPS Office, Transmission and a few other things under Linux. Android apps I tend to avoid except for a few games.

      Would be nice to have the i5/8GB for futureproofing but currently I can't justify as everything just works and works fine.

      Lenovo has just released 11th gen versions, so maybe we might see a drop in the price of the 10th gen units.

      ( I know of 6 refurb of these Asus Chromebooks in stock in Hobart for $599 (don't know if they ship interstate) :p )

        Got the i5 / 8GB / 128SSD recently for $595 delivered (eBay, Bing Lee, after pay promo).
        Very happy with it so far.
        Only thing I've tried that didn't work was PlayStation remote play <sad face/>

      The storage in the Asus c434 is not upgradable.

      Please note in last years Flex 5 Chromebooks, only the i5 Flex 5 model has 2242 NVMe SSD ( it also has 8GB RAM and a better screen), the i3 model has 4GB and eMMC soldered storage.
      RAM is soldered in both.

      I have this one from a previous deal:
      https://www.amazon.com.au/Lenovo-Chromebook-i5-10210U-Graphi...

      and have checked the SSD is there and removable.

    I haven't been able to confirm after a minute or two of googling, but this may be too old for the integrated Linux support, so you'd be looking at dual-boot, crouton etc. Whether this actually matters to someone is something else entirely.

    Nevermind, it supports Android and Linux.

    I bought one of these last year Oct or Nov for for about $470 from Harvey Norman, though you also had to buy a $300 gift card at the same time to get it at that price. It doesn't have USB 3 or HDMI, and the backlit keyboard is hard to read in dim light. Besides those negatives a great Chromebook.

    Edit : Much heavier than my old Toshiba Chromebook from 2014.
