ASUS Malaysia announced today the ASUS Chromebook CR11 Flip, an all-new, education-focused ChromeOS laptop with a convertible design that transforms into an 11.6-inch multitouch tablet.
The innovative ASUS Chromebook CR11 Flip is constructed to military-grad standards, ensuring resilience in the hustle and bustle of everyday life at home, outdoors, and in the classroom. It features clever protective elements, including an all-around rubber bumper, a spill-resistant keyboard, and an optional Corning® Gorilla® Glass1 display. With ample battery life to handle a full day of learning and beyond, along with easy-to-service modular construction and zero-touch enrollment, the ASUS Chromebook CR11 Flip is designed for seamless functionality.
In addition to these features, the convertible ASUS Chromebook CR11 Flip offers an optional garaged stylus, a world-facing camera for innovative learning opportunities and maximum flexibility, and a physical webcam shutter for instant privacy.
Ultimate Rugged Design
The ASUS Chromebook CR11 Flip is engineered to withstand everyday knocks, bumps, drops, and spills without sustaining damage. Whether it's accidentally dropped from a classroom desk or a dining table, the ASUS Chromebook CR11 Flip is built like a tank that just keeps on going. For starters, all four exterior edges and corners are shielded by a robust rubber bumper, minimizing the impact of physical shocks and ensuring that critical components remain safe and sound. Additionally, the spill-resistant keyboard can handle liquid spills of up to 405 cc without any harm—making it easy to drain, clean, and dry for quick recovery from minor splashes.
The ASUS Chromebook CR11 Flip features a rubber safety grip on the base that not only provides sturdy support for the laptop but also makes it easier to carry, reducing the risk of fumbles and slips. But the protection doesn't stop there. The keyboard is designed to resist tampering, with minimal gaps between the edges of the keycaps and the keyboard surround, preventing keys from being pried out. The laptops even boast a tough, micro-dimpled finish that resists fingerprints, keeping them cleaner for longer.
The ASUS Chromebook CR11 Flip has been tested to meet US military-grade MIL-STD-810H durability standards2 and has successfully passed stringent ASUS quality tests. This confirms its ability to withstand drops of up to 120 cm—greater than standard desk height. The display hinge and I/O ports are also thoroughly tested to endure the stresses and strains of everyday use.
Versatile Capabilities for Learning
The ASUS Chromebook CR11 Flip expands possibilities with its convertible design, featuring a garaged stylus for quick, precise movements that unleash creativity and productivity. Students can easily take notes, sketch, or jot down ideas as they occur. The stylus automatically charges when garaged, ensuring it's ready for use and providing a safe storage space. For even more enriching learning experiences, the ASUS Chromebook CR11 Flip includes a world-facing camera positioned just above the keyboard. This empowers students to explore and learn in entirely new ways, allowing them to capture photos and videos in tablet mode.
To provide students with optimal connectivity, the ASUS Chromebook CR11 Flip incorporates WiFi 6 technology and comes equipped with a full array of I/O ports, including two USB Type-C® (USB-C®) ports, two USB 3.2 Type-A ports, a microSD card reader, an audio combo jack, and a Kensington Lock slot. With up to 12 hours of battery life3 on a single charge, the laptop easily lasts for a full day of classes and more, empowering students to enjoy uninterrupted learning and entertainme

This certification potentially protects students' eyes from damage during prolonged study sessions.
The ASUS Chromebook CR11 Flip even offers instant privacy with a built-in physical webcam shutter that swiftly flips across with a quick swipe of the finger. This feature is perfect for moments when users need to swiftly close off the outside world.
To minimize maintenance costs for schools, parents, and students, ASUS Chromebook CR11 Flip is designed for easy servicing and reduced downtime. Both models benefit from a modular construction allowing key components, such as the keyboard, touchpad, and panel, to be replaced in minutes using simple tools.
