Pasig City, Philippines, May 30, 2023 — ASUS Philippines continues to expand its reach towards the Education segment with the addition of the new 11.6-inch clamshell and convertible laptops, the ASUS Chromebook CR1 and Chromebook Flip CR1.
The new education-focused ASUS Chromebook CR1 Series is built to military-grade reliability, tested with industry-leading MIL-STD-810H durability standards to survive the hustle and bustle of everyday life at home, outside, and in the classroom, with clever protective features including an all-round rubber bumper and a spill-resistant keyboard.
The ASUS Chromebook CR1 and Flip CR1 boast an all-day long 12-hour battery life with fast charging support, ensuring there’s sufficient battery life to handle a full day’s learning and beyond. In addition, the convertible ASUS Chromebook Flip CR1 benefits from an optional garaged stylus and a world-facing camera for innovative learning opportunities and maximum flexibility.
Educational Reliability: Ruggedized Laptop Design
ASUS Chromebook CR1 and Flip CR1 laptops are built to withstand everyday knocks, bumps, drops and spills without damage. These two Chromebook laptops went through rigorous testing and passed the U.S. military-grade MIL-STD-810H durability standards. From a 120cm Drop Test to a Panel Pressure Test, the ASUS Chromebook CR1 and Flip CR1 guarantees students and educators quality of reliability to keep on going. The display hinge and I/O ports are also exhaustively tested to endure the stresses and strains of everyday use.
ASUS Chromebook CR1 and Flip CR1’s four exterior edges and corners are also protected by a sturdy rubber bummer, which reduces the impact of all physical shocks, ensuring all critical laptop components are always unharmed. These models also feature a rubber safety grip on the base. This provides sturdy support for the laptop and makes it easier to grip when carrying, reducing the risk of fumbles and slips.
But the protection does not end there. These Chromebook laptops are built-in with a spill-resistant keyboard for any accidental spilling, which can repel 330cc without harm — so minor splashes are easily drained, cleaned, and dried. The keyboard is also designed to resist tampering, with a minimal gap between the edges of the keycaps and the keyboard surround to prevent the keys from being pried out. The laptops even have a tough, micro-dimpled finish that can brush off fingerprints and minor scuffs and scratches.
To ensure reliability, ASUS Chromebook CR1 and Flip CR1 also include a 3-year on-site warranty that secures students and teachers from any worry. These two Chromebooks are also covered with ASUS Platinum Protection, which covers accidental damage such as drops, liquid damage, and other acts of nature. This program is designed to offer additional protection beyond the standard warranty.
Essential Learning Features: New Ways to Learn
The possibilities are limitless with ASUS Chromebook CR1 series. The versatile and flippable ASUS Chromebook Flip CR1 features a garaged stylus that enables quick, precise movements for creativity and productivity tasks. This ensures students can easily take notes, sketch, or jot ideas down. The stylus also quickly and automatically charges when garaged, keeping it ready for use and providing a safe place to store it.
For further learning experiences, ASUS Chromebook Flip CR1 also includes an 8MP world-facing camera positioned just above the keyboard. This empowers students to explore and learn in totally new ways, allowing them to capture photos and videos in tablet mode.
The ASUS Chromebook CR1 Series can also last up to 12 hours of battery life on a single charge with its 47Wh battery. ASUS Chromebook CR1 and ASUS Chromebook Flip CR1 are able to last for a full day of classes and more — empowering students to enjoy both uninterrupted learning and entertainment.
Safety first: Antibacterial protection and low blue-light emissions
To secure and protect Educators, ASUS treated these laptops with the ASUS Antibacterial Guard, which is applied to the keyboard area of ASUS Chromebook CR1 and Flip CR1. This has been scientifically shown to prevent the growth of bacteria by over 99% over a 24-hour period, keeping the laptop surfaces clean and sanitary.
Additional features to promote user well-being include screens certified by TÜV Rheinland for low blue-light emissions, potentially helping to protect students’ eyes from damage during prolonged study sessions. For further enhancing eye care, ASUS Chromebook CR1 Series features an anti-glare display that reduces reflections to provide comfortable viewing in any lighting.
Less Downtime, More Learning time: Easier Maintenance
To keep maintenance costs to a minimum for schools, parents, and students, ASUS Chromebook CR1 and ASUS Chromebook Flip CR1 are designed for easy servicing and reduced downtime. Both benefit from a modular construction that allows key components — such as the keyboard, touchpad, and panel — to be replaced in minutes using simple tools.
As a final easy-maintenance touch, the underside is securely attached using captive screws, eliminating worries about losing these little parts during repairs.
The Best of Google for Education
