ASUS Chromebook CX9
The brand-new premium Chromebook is ultra-durable, yet lightweight. It is just 16mm thin and weighs around 1kg, allowing for easy mobility. It also meets next-level and industry-leading MIL-STD 810H US military tests to ensure it’s tough enough to withstand business rigors on the road. Additionally, the four-sided frameless 14-inch NanoEdge display provides an immersive, near edge-to-edge viewing experience with an impressive 91% screen-to-body ratio.
Powered by a 11th Gen up to Intel Core i7 processor with Iris Xe graphics and benefits from superfast WiFi 6, the Chromebook CX9 is loaded with I/O ports, including cutting-edge Thunderbolt 4, standard USB Type-A and HDMI outputs, despite its thin profile. It also comes with Harman Kardon-certified audio, a backlit and spill-resistant keyboard, and ErgoLift hinge for comfortable typing.
The 11.6-inch ASUS BR1100 is the ultimate learning tool that offers comprehensive, education-centered features to boost the efficiency of both remote and classroom learning, and is available in both clamshell and convertible forms.
The BR1100 is engineered to survive accidents, including falls of up to 1.2 metres, with a rugged design including an all-round rubber bumper, spill-resistant keyboard and a reinforced structure to withstand everyday knocks, bumps and spills. In addition to passing multiple rigorous US military-grade tests, the BR1100 is built to last.
Additional designs to accommodate the needs of young learners include an ASUS BacGuard antibacterial keyboard frame that adheres to ISO 22196 to inhibit the growth of bacteria by more than 99% over a 24-hour period, as well as a TÜV Rheinland-certified display for low blue-light emissions, helping protect eyes from potential harm.

It offers a range of professional-grade NVIDIA GeForce® and Quadro® graphics options, plus up to 128 GB memory. A clever internal layout gives maximum space for expansion in a compact form factor, and is able to accommodate up to four storages, legacy parallel and series ports to ensure seamless connection to business peripherals.
