Resilience built right in

With its powerful up to quad-core Intel processor, ASUS Chromebook CX1 delivers excellent performance for responsive experiences with favourite apps. It also offers dual-band WiFi 6 for strong, stable signals and superfast speeds, allowing online content to be loaded in the blink of an eye. Its connectivity is improved further by exclusive ASUS technologies—such as ASUS WiFi Master for ChromeOS—that ensure greater speed, stability and range for WiFi connections, helping users stay connected anywhere.
ASUS Chromebook CX1 is also superbly power-efficient, with a long-life battery designed to last for up to 12 hours on a single charge, empowering work or play throughout the day.
