Asus has rather quietly launched the Asus Chromebook Detachable CZ1 as noted by Chromeunboxed, which is a new 10.1-inch Chrome tablet or detachable.
The Asus Chromebook Detachable CZ1 (CZ1000) is produced for the education market, which is why its launch was considered quiet from the point of view of consumer tablets. And as a classroom tablet PC, it is equipped with a rugged cover too, which will increase its longevity.
Asus Chromebook Detachable CZ1 specs includes a 10.1-inch screen with a Full HD 1920 x 1200 resolution display at 400 nits, with the tablet powered by the octa-core 2.0 GHz MediaTek MT8183 Kompanio 500 processor, with 4GB of LPDDR4x RAM, and 54GB or 128GB eMMC storage options.
It has a 2MP front camera, 8MP rear camera, stereo speakers, Wi-Fi 5, BT 5.0, and a 27 WHrs battery with an 11 hour battery life, and a 45W charger that charges through the USB C port.
There’s also a 3.5mm audio jack on the new Chrome tablet from Asus, and an integrated digitizer pen. As for dimensions, the tablet is 9mm thick and weighs 500 grams before we add the keyboard and cover.
The keyboard and rubber cover, which includes a kickstand on the back, gives the tablet a US MIL-STD 810H rating so it should survive a drop from 1.5 meters.
So as we can see, the Asus Chromebook Detachable CZ1 is very similar to the 10.5-inch Asus Chromebook CM3. The CZ1 is just more rugged and a little smaller.
