Asus has just revealed a 15.6-inch Chromebook, C523. With the launch of C523, Asus will be able to provide the users with more options for Chromebooks, as currently there aren’t many larger than 13 inches.

The exact hardware information hasn’t been revealed by Asus yet. But, it is expected that the C523 would also be coming with nearly the same specs as other low-end Chromebooks launched by Asus recently.

The intro page says, Asus Chromebook C523 is powered by Intel Quad-Core processor, has a stunning 15.6-inch up to FHD NanoEdge display and with an ultra-narrow 6 mm bezel. It is said to be having 10-hours of battery backup, which sounds nice. It has a thickness of 15.6 mm and weighs 3.2 lb.

The C523 can be laid flat with the help of its durable 180° hinge. Also, Asus will be releasing its first 15-inch Chromebook in an optional touchscreen version. So, if you were looking for one with touch screen feature, you might like to consider this one too.

As per AndroidPolice, the C523 will go on sale early next year, atleast in the United Kingdom.

As of now, the specification page for this machine only reads, “Operating System – Windows 10 Premium”. However, the point worth noting here is that Windows 10 Premium doesn’t actually exist!
