ASUS is a Taiwanese technology industry that has grown very quickly within the past few decades and is now one of the dominant players in the global market. They offer many different electronics in a wide variety of prices so you are sure to find anything you need for the right price.
I received the ASUS Chromebook C200 for this review. It has been awhile since I had a laptop so I forgot just how nice it is to have a laptop. I was very surprised with how much was packed into this tiny laptop. The C200 sports an 11.6 inch HD screen, but don’t let the size fool you. Check out all of these cool features:
• The C200 has a battery life of up to 11 hours.. yes 11!! This was one of my most favorite things. It didn’t take long to charge (maybe 2 hours if that for a full charge) and then it would last all day long. One thing I hate about a laptop is that they are portable when they want to be. Other times you are struggling to find a spot to plug-in the charger. The C200 has spoiled me. I am able to work all day long without having to be attached to the wall with the charger.
•Small and compact design. This Chromebook is very thin and light weight that it is really easy to carry around.
• Chromebook supports a dual-band 802.11ac Wi-Fi. This slim Chromebook really surprised me with how quick it would load up a webpage. It loads quicker than my Gateway desktop. It also supports Bluetooth 4.0 which is awesome to connect a bluetooth mouse or a bluetooth speaker to.
•The touchpad is awesome. You are able to scroll through webpages just by touching the touchpad. You can also double-click and do many more things. I don’t think any other touchpad can live up to this.
• The Chromebook has some high quality speakers. Once again, do not let the size fool you. The speakers on this are amazing. Not only do they offer a crisp and clean sound but it is also very loud. It also has a 1.2 MegaPixel camera and a ton of fun effects that come with it.
•Connect to everything you need. The Chromebook C200 lets you connect via HDMI, USB Card Reader and even SD Card. A lot of laptops do not come with an SD Card reader, so this was another of my favorite features.
•The Chrome Web Store comes installed on the Chromebook. I did not know this until it hit me that this was a Chromebook. You can access 100s of apps and I could spend hours just checking out all of the apps. There are even some that you can enjoy without having to be connected to the internet.
• It comes with Chrome OS. This is another one of my favorite features. It automatically updates and you will always be up to date and be protected against viruses with the built-in virus protection.
I have loved this little laptop, more than my desktop. It is just so easy to use and very slim and easy to tote around. Since it comes with Google Drive on it, you can set it up for different users, making it perfect for the entire family. The Chromebook is very affordable and is on sale for only $199 + Free Shipping on Amazon.
My Recommendation: I totally recommend this as a gift for the Tech Savvy in your family. It is an amazing and powerful little book and I was so amazed with how much it did. I would even recommend this for an older tween or teen in high school to do their school work on. Plus the price is really amazing.
