Asus C200 Chromebook review - LOVE IT!

ASUS C200MA-DS01 Chromebook Intel Celeron N2830 (2.16GHz) 2 GB DDR3 Memory 16 GB eMMC SSD 11.6" Chrome OS
ASUS C200MA-DS01 Chromebook Intel Celeron N2830 (2.16GHz) 2 GB DDR3 Memory 16 GB eMMC SSD 11.6" Chrome OS

Pros: Fast. Great display. Keyboard is solid and has good feel. I'm running multiple tabs and listening to music via Google Play and I've seen no lagging, stuttering, or pausing. Battery life appears to be excellent -- my Chromebook has been up and working for a little over hours and the battery shows 76 percent left, or another 8 hours and change. I wasn't expecting such snappy performance, or such an elegant build for the price. Well done ASUS!

Cons: None really. It can't scramble eggs or run Photoshop, but that's because it's a Chromebook. I knew what I was getting -- or hoping to get -- and this little machine is spot-on.

Overall Review: If a Chromebook is what you want (what you really really want), then this is an excellent Chromebook to own. If you don't know how Chromebooks differ from Windows machines or Macs, do some research before you buy. But if it's a Chromebook you want, this is a good choice!

Easy Install, Great Results!

Pros: Quality construction, ease of use, performance.

Cons: Does not function as FTL drive. Also refuses to fetch cheeseburgers.

Overall Review: Excellent value! Runs everything I've thrown at it with amazing competence. Awesome card!

Fantastic Monitor!

Pros: No dead pixels. Stunning color and definition. Games are amazing on this monitor -- it was worth more than I paid.

Cons: No cons. It's perfect.

Overall Review: The best monitor I've ever owned. I do some photo editing and play games, and this is a true joy to behold.

Looks nifty, moves air

Pros: I like the blue glow. The fan is very quiet -- frankly, I can't hear it at all -- and it keeps my Velociraptor cool.

Cons: Did not grant me the powers of flight or invisibility.

Overall Review: Worth the money!

Pros: Great memory at a great price. No bad sticks, no problems installing it, it runs at the rated speed with zero issues thus far.

Cons: Failed to arrive packaged with Catherine Zeta Jones.

Overall Review: Used this memory in an ASUS M4A89GTD PRO/USB3 MB and an AMD Phenom II X4 955 BE CPU. Got 8 gigs, works like a charm!
