Remember those AMD Chromebook processors that promised 17 hours of battery life?

We’re about to see one in the wild. Asus has launched its Chromebook CM34 Flip, one of the first models that will include AMD’s new Ryzen 7020 C-Series processors (which are basically the same chips that AMD released for budget laptops last September, but nevertheless).

The CM34 has Wi-Fi 6, a 16:10 screen, a full-sized backlit keyboard, a physical webcam cover, and a starting price of $499. Asus is claiming 13 hours of battery life, rather than 17, so there’s that.

Oh, and it flips around.
