While there are many brands that make furor from any low-end or mid-range product, for many other companies, the launch of such products is not anything special. For instance, do you know that today ASUS released a new low-cost Chromebook? We guess not. The reason is that ASUS makes loud announcements only when there is something worthy.
Anyway, the ASUS Chromebook CM14 series comes with a MediaTek Kompanio 520 processor. If you remember, this series of processors is budget laptops and Chromebooks.
ASUS Chromebook CM14 specs
The ASUS Chromebook CM14 notebook is available in two versions: the CM14 Flip model with an FHD touchscreen display and 360-degree hinge; the CM14 Flip model comes with a non-touch display (and a 1920 x 1080 pixel display with wide viewing angles, or an optional 1366 x 768-pixel or 1920 x 1080-pixel TN monitor with limited viewing angles).
