Strong, stylish and light
With its aluminum-finished lid, thin 15.6mm profile and overall weight of just 1.43kg, ASUS Chromebook C523 has a distinctively premium look and feel. Designed for effortless mobility, it’s your take-anywhere companion that’s always ready to go wherever your day takes you!
The stunning 15.6-inch up to FHD NanoEdge display has an ultra-narrow 6mm bezel, and features a matte anti-glare coating to reduce annoying reflections3. The result is a laptop with an impressive 80% screen-to-body ratio that minimizes size while helping you maximize productivity — so you can see and do more, while carrying less!
Do more with your fingertips
The optional 10-point multitouch display on ASUS Chromebook C523 makes your experience even more intuitive. The display is also designed to be more accurate and responsive than conventional touchscreens.
Durable 180° hinge
