Dark blue ASUS Chromebook C202SA-YS02 is a new compact 11.6 inch Chromebook with 10 hours of battery life, faster ac variety wireless access, good connectivity including 2 x USB 3.0 ports, more RAM and compact size at a budget price. Technical specs include the Intel Celeron N3060 processor (2MB cache) at 1.6GHz speed that goes up to 2.48GHz speed with turbo boost, 4GB LPDDR SDRAM memory for multitasking power, 16GB eMMC flash storage + 100GB Google Drive storage on the cloud free for two years and Chrome OS with frequent updates in the background. Like other Chromebooks on the market, this one also does not have a CD/DVD Drive and Chrome machines don’t have the standard Windows programs or apps but the substitutes like the free Google Docs or QuickOffice editor to open or edit your Microsoft Office or you can always download the MS Office online version, again free of charge.

Matte 11.6 inch high definition anti-glare screen has the 1366x768 pixel resolution for clear picture with vivid colours and Intel HD graphics as the built-in GPU for adequate multimedia performance like watching movies, viewing photos, playing Chrome games. It weighs 2.2 pounds and measures11.6 x 0.9 x 7.9 inches, has a hinge that rotates 180 degrees which is great for sharing the screen with others. Lithium ion battery should last an easy 9-10 hours at low settings for simple tasks like video streaming or internet browsing at low light so you can be outdoors all day long, away from power outlets. Keyboard has larger keys and 2mm key travel for typing accurately, is spill-resistant so you’ll be fine in case of coffee or water spilling. Chassis is very strong and solid as it has frames that are wrapped with reinforced rubber and with nano-molding on all edges so all important components are safe. It is easy to set up and use, is durable with an above average build quality, works well and stays quiet even after several hours with its fanless design.

Asus Chromebook C202SA stays tough and rugged against knocks, bumps, falls (tested for drops from 3.9 feet heights) or intense use by students or others indoors and outdoors and there will be no or minimal downtime at times you need it and has two properly placed grips for better traction so there will be no slipping. 16GB eMMC storage is common to a lot of Chromebooks as these are designed mainly for web use and with Cloud storage. Because this is a Chromebook there is no DVD Optical Drive but you have the latest 802.11ac WiFi for much better internet access without the poor signals around the house, 2 x USB 3.0 ports, an SD Card Reader, an HDMI output to hook up to a larger display like HDTV and a Kensington lock. You can perform some tasks offline but you will mostly need internet access to use Google services like Gmail, Google Docs, Google Calendar and Google Drive. Although a little heavier than Chromebook’s with similar specs, it is most certainly more durable and solid and you will get a one year limited US warranty for parts and labor.
