Portable productivity

Engineered with an up to Intel Core i7 processor and 16 GB of fast, power-efficient LPDDR5 4800 MHz memory, and featuring a large-capacity 512 GB PCIe® SSD, ASUS Chromebook Plus CX34 delivers the performance and responsiveness required for seamless productivity. This helps provide ample storage for business files, school work and entertainment content. Adobe Photoshop® and Adobe Express® for example, empower users to quickly and easily edit standout photos or create social graphics, flyers, business cards. And with LumaFusion, ASUS Chromebook Plus CX34 assists users in transforming raw footage into stunning video with features like track layering, audio mixing, custom titling, and keyframing. Customers who purchase a Chromebook Plus device between October 8, 2023 and January 31, 2024 get a complimentary three-month trial to Adobe Photoshop Web. The three-month trial membership also gives Chromebook Plus users access to Adobe Express Premium plan.

For fast, reliable connectivity at home, in the office, classroom, or when commuting in between, ASUS Chromebook Plus CX34 includes Wi-Fi 6 technology, ensuring online content loads in the blink of an eye. This desirable connectivity is boosted further by exclusive ASUS technologies, such as ASUS WiFi Master for ChromeOS, ensuring greater speed, stability and range — helping users to stay connected anywhere, fast. And for the times when users don’t have access to WiFi, with File Sync on Chromebook Plus, they will have access to their Google Docs, Sheets and Slides online and offline.

In addition to the intuitive control afforded by the optional touchscreen, ASUS Chromebook Plus CX34 benefits from a large 5.7-inch touchpad. This expansive input area is optimized to provide smoother, more responsive fingertip control, making it easier to multitask and achieve more without the need for a mouse.

Immersive and reliable

ASUS Chromebook Plus CX34 is equipped with a gorgeous 14-inch Full HD (FHD), three-sided NanoEdge display, improving immersion and maximizing the workspace.

With a 1080p webcam and built-in video call controls that automatically enhance clarity and lighting, cancel noise, and blur backgrounds, users always look and sound their best — no matter what video call app they’re using. They can also mute the mic and turn off the camera with one click for added privacy and convenience. As well, this high-resolution camera can be quickly hidden behind a retractable cover.

Wellbeing is also a cornerstone of ASUS Chromebook Plus CX34’s design, with the keyboard, touchpad and palm rest all protected by ASUS Antimicrobial Guard. This exclusive treatment is scientifically proven to inhibit bacterial growth by up to 99% over a 24-hour period to keep the laptop hygienic.

ASUS Chromebook Plus CX34 is also built tough, with a series of structural reinforcements to boost chassis strength. The design meets the next-level and industry-leading US MIL-STD 810H durability standards , which are more rigorous and demanding than ever before. Additionally, the device undergoes stringent in-house testing — including panel-pressure, shock and drop tests — to ensure maximal toughness and shrugs off everyday knocks and bumps.

Friendly flexibility

ASUS Chromebook Plus CX34 was created to be a friendly and flexible companion for college students, teachers, and busy professionals. The bright, clear FHD 14-inch display is available with an optional touchscreen, for input that’s as easy as it is intuitive. The screen is also attached with a strong 180° hinge that enables it to be laid fully flat — making it perfect for sharing content or collaborating on projects. The 10-hour1 battery life is more than enough to power through a full day of work or school, with plenty to spare in the tank for some rest and relaxation.

For maximum convenience, ASUS Chromebook Plus CX34 is crammed with connectivity. Two full-function reversible USB-C® (USB Type-C®) ports make it easy to charge the laptop or to connect it to peripherals and external displays. USB-C also empowers superfast data-transfer speeds — making it possible to transfer a 2 GB video file to a USB drive in under two seconds. ASUS Chromebook Plus CX34 also features two standard USB 3.2 ports, an HDMI 1.4 port and an integrated 3.5 mm headphone/mic combo socket.
