My Honest ASUS C536EA Flip 2-in-1 Chromebook Review

Build quality, keyboard, screen, touch screen, aesthetics, design, ports, sound, battery life, and pricing for what you receive are all important considerations. With the exception of the touchpad, the whole hardware. The fan would periodically turn on but was fairly silent. The device never got hot, but it did become warm.

USEABILITY/CONCLUSION: Chromebooks have advanced significantly. Especially when we always have pocket computers with us (cellphones). However, they are not ideal, and there is still a trade. To put it simply, if you dislike doing things on your smartphone because the apps themselves are irritating, you should definitely avoid a Chromebook. If you’re happy with how apps operate on your phone but want a bigger device with a mouse and keyboard, save your money and get a Chromebook, which I believe you’ll like. Especially if you own an Android device. I’m still a little too PC for my own good. I’m one of those people who can’t handle a lot of mobile phone applications since they significantly impair my productivity. Most of the applications I tested were plainly designed for a smartphone, which didn’t sit right with me. Because some would only be viewable in smartphone mode, those that could be enlarged to full screen would be so magnified that they were unpleasant. When it came to programs like Microsoft Word, which I use often, I could only have one open at a time, and cutting and copying was a hassle. Because the touchpad couldn’t highlight just one phrase. Instead, I had to use the touchscreen to hold my finger on the word, which would bring up the two tabs like on a smartphone, and then move them to where I needed, and then perform shortcut keys from there. This significantly hindered my writing and editing. Because I’m continuously deleting, rewriting, and rearranging stuff. This could be better for Google Docs, but I haven’t tried it.

I’m also a “power User,” and although the core I3 is really speedy on Chrome OS, it’s still not as fast as I’d want it to be. If I had too many items open and running at the same time, my computer would slow down, programs would crash, or they would need to reload when I returned to them. Which surprised me since I thought 8 GB of RAM would be enough for what I was doing. I had two options: shut out and reload or wait for it to catch up. However, if I used Chrome OS with this CPU as intended, which is for one or two things at a time, with just a few tabs open at a time, I had no problems and everything was snappy and responsive.

Finally, I discovered that Chrome OS isn’t as intuitive as iPad OS, and many of the movements that function on there don’t work here. While there were many keyboard shortcuts, they didn’t always offer what I was searching for. For example, I don’t believe there is a shortcut to your home screen. I also noticed that when I was using Chrome and logged into various websites, it would transfer me out of Chrome and into an application. The same as your mobile phone. This was irritating since the apps were often inferior than the websites.

Chrome OS has vastly improved in recent years. To the point where I believe they are excellent gadgets for many people. However, there are many places where it may be improved. Fortunately, nothing about this laptop holds it back, and the only thing that makes me nervous for certain users (like myself) is the limits of the operating system. If this were a Windows PC, I’d be all on it. So, hardware-wise, they nailed it, and if ChromeOS is your thing, you’ll probably enjoy this tablet. If you’re on the verge, I’d suggest a Chromebook.

A. Those who engage in basic online surfing and video viewing.

B. Those who do not manage a YouTube channel or anything similar that requires them to juggle many projects at the same time in order to complete items.

C. Those who compose one word document at a time with no extensive revisions that need cutting, copying, and pasting.

D. Want a gadget that is basic, updates itself, and has its own security, like my Grandma or aren’t particularly computer aware.

Otherwise, I’d use Windows or Mac.

TOUCHPAD: ASUS C536EA Flip 2-in-1 Chromebook has a 5.68-inch glass touchpad with palm rejection and multi-touch gesture capability. My finger glides smoothly over the touchpad. However, it is not particularly accurate and detracts from the gadget. Because a decent mousepad can make or break a gadget. They got a lot of things right, including the size, the use of a glass surface that allows your finger to travel smoothly over it, and gesture control. Unfortunately, they threw in a lot of ankle snapping. For those who are unfamiliar, ankle snapping is the ability to produce absolutely straight lines with your mouse movement. In this scenario, I can consistently produce flawless squares or rectangles. It is incredibly tough to execute a straight line without ankle snapping, which adds a lot of accuracy. Fine motions are practically difficult with angle snapping since your mouse becomes confused about the straight direction it is intended to travel. This forced me to either use the touchscreen or attach a mouse to navigate. The touch screen on ASUS C536EA Flip 2-in-1 Chromebook is quite nice, which made navigating that manner enjoyable. However, it is still not as exact as a specialized pointer. I experienced no problems with angle snapping while using an external mouse. I was using a premium gaming mouse with angle snapping turned off. So, I’m not sure whether you used a typical office mouse if you ran into troubles there as well.

KEYBOARD: The keyboard is perhaps the second most significant component of a laptop. The one on ASUS C536EA Flip 2-in-1 Chromebook is fantastic in terms of typing. I type between 115 and 130 wpm and am rather fussy, yet this man feels nice. It features 1.4 mm key travel and provides great tactile sensation when a click is registered. It takes little actuation effort and is almost silent, so you won’t annoy anybody even in a quiet environment. They are backlit with white light, but not evenly. My “F” and “T” keys are brighter than the rest, which is one of the few instances when this Chromebook shows its cost. According to them, the palm rest region has a “obsidian velvet feel.” I’m sure that’s intended to sound more fancy in marketing, but in fact, it simply feels like matte rubber, which I enjoy. I could write on this man all day and never get bored of it. It recorded all of my keystrokes. I have no complaints regarding the performance or typing experience. However, because of the size and the fact that it is a Chromebook, there are certain peculiarities with this keyboard that you should investigate before purchasing to ensure that it is suitable for you.

SCREEN: ASUS C536EA Flip 2-in-1 Chromebook has a 15.6″ Full HD (1920x1080p) IPS Touch screen with three-sided NanoEdge, an 81 percent screen-to-body ratio, a 178-degree viewing angle, and USI Stylus Support. That line is largely there to make myself appear clever and educated. The short of it is that I am quite impressed with this screen, and I was not anticipating it to be this amazing. Because it outperforms the majority of laptop displays on the market. It has a glossy appearance that makes things seem incredibly crisp but at the expense of poor reflection management. Personally, I like of this exchange, but some may object since using it in a bright environment may be annoying. Fortunately, the screen brightens to assist offset this. It may also get exceedingly dark. You get outstanding image quality and contrast whether it’s bright or dark. Which surprises me since most laptop displays don’t become very bright, and dimming them makes the whole screen seem bad. In generally light spaces, I found that maintaining it about 50% was enough, and I could go lower in darker places. This improves battery life. Text, images, and videos were all extremely crisp and simple to see, with superb contrast and true brilliant colors. I’m not sure what type of screen they placed on this person, but I was completely fine viewing material on him, which is really unusual for me. I despise most laptop screens because they are so bad.
