Happy medium between phone and Laptop!

Pros: *Lightweight, very portable and bigger & better than a tablet or phone for in car mobile hotspot Wifi use or at home browsing/streaming.
*Battery life very good for me @8 hrs+.
* Decent graphics for what it is. Not HD but not a con for me.
* Great for those in between tasks where you don’t need a PC/Laptop powerhouse with full blown Windows, etc…
*Sound is good for a small form factor
*Quick boot up like with other Chromebooks. No bulky OS to load.
*Sufficient RAM

Cons: *No big cons (other than it is what is). Google “Chromebook vs Laptop” stuff.
*CPU not the best for this use, but it will do, and helps battery life.
*Memory isn’t big but that is also inherent to Chromebooks as your stuff is in the cloud anyway.
*Camera is very basic. Maybe a bit more basic even than most entry level laptops.

Overall Review: I won’t be replacing anything with this. I will use it in car as supplemental. I will use in bedroom or on couch for basic browsing shopping streaming vids when away from my PC. Much easier on my eyes than a phone screen for sure while in bed, and not getting hot on my lap.
This fills a niche very well. Good job ASUS. I love your products in general!

Fantastic Chromebook

Pros: I had my wife help me with this review as we have decided to eventually make this our son's first "grown-up" gadget. He is coming up on 2 years old and has started to really enjoy calling my wife's parents (his grandparents) on Facetime since they live just under 1,000 miles away. With the camera on this we figure he can maybe take some selfies and send them to grandma and grandpa in e-mails and maybe even create some fun pictures or other messages for them. There are fun little settings like big head and big jaw, black and white and retro style for pictures. The camera isn't going to wow anyone or take award-winning photographs but it's a built in webcam for a $200 Chromebook not a DSLR advertised by a gangly washed-up tv actor.

The battery life on this Chromebook is fantastic. It seriously lasts so long I forget that it isn't plugged in and then forget when I first started using it so I didn't get an exact count on the number of hours it lasts. The battery lasts long enough that I haven't even had to plug it in while using it yet nor have I ever received any kind of battery low warning and I've been putting this thing through a lot while testing it out.

Another thing my wife noted was that this device doesn't get hot at all. No matter how many windows or apps we had open, games we played, or even how long it was on the charger it never became even slightly noticeably warmer than simply room temperature. The only thing that made it warmer was body heat from holding it in our lap.

The screen resolution is actually very good and the picture is very good. Colors are vibrant and the brightness is adjustable in all different ranges. It is also very easy to see and read the screen from the side so sharing a video, webpage, or document is no problem.

The speakers are quite decent for being a cheaper Chromebook. You aren't going to be using it for a party but for a quick youtube video share they're quite functional. Plugging in a quality pair of headphones takes care of that issue. My Klipsh headphones were right at home in the headphone port and made Imagine Dragons sound just as good as if I were listening on my iPod.

I realize I keep saying "for a Chromebook" or "for a little device" and other such phrases in this review but I find it important to keep in mind that this is not some big $3,000.00 17", quad-core, 32gb RAM, 1TB solid state drive, Nvidia 1,000 series GTX video card laptop but is instead a two-hundred dollar Chromebook that technically doesn't even have a real operating system. That being said, for a Chromebook this thing has a nice number of different ports. USB 3.0 ports, a card reader, and even an HDMI out. The card reader is great for expansion of the hard drive in case the 16gb it comes with isn't enough. Honestly if you are storing anything on this bigger than a document or a funny picture for Facebook you need to be getting an actual laptop, desktop PC, or Mac/Macbook.

This thing can take a beating. I turned my 20-month-old son loose on it and if you've never had a toddler who is learning his own strength and still developing his motor skills then you should watch The Flinstones episodes with Bam-Bam and imagine him having access to fine electronics. That will give you an idea about my son's behavior when he gets excited and displays his happiness at being able to use his Chromebook. I figured if he pounded on the keys a little they would maybe stop squeaking but no such luck (I will go over the squeaking in the "Cons" section). Even with his overzealous overhand slam typing and a decent amount of drool no damage was done to the Chromebook. So I give a big thumbs-up to the durability and spill-resistant keyboard.

Cons: One of the main problems my wife had with this was that it was not a laptop. She is a licensed architect so her work computers are all rather big impressive machines that run Revit and plan these massive projects. I even built her a desktop workstation for home with a workstation graphics card and an AMD Richland Black (another EggXpert item). Anyway with all of these big fancy PCs she found this little Chromebook a little underwhelming. Obviously she would never purchase one for herself but for someone who purchased this knowing they were getting a Chromebook there really are no cons here that are dealbreakers.

I originally had thought my son could make videos to send to his grandparents and other family members, however, the camera on this device comes with software that only allows for still images. There are programs available on the WebStore that make it possible to take video, however, the video is a little choppy and their length is limited. Despite this the still images are quite decent for sending an e-mail or posting to Facebook as a quick howdy-doo.

The big rubber bumper/protectors on this Chromebook are a little...clunky. They do a great job of protecting the machine but they do seem like they might be a bit of a dirt catcher and they add a bit of girth.

The keyboard, while I absolutely LOVE how the keys feel when I type (honestly I have not yet come across another keyboard either as a separate component or part of a laptop or macbook that feels this good under my fingers) as the tactile resistance, key-travel distance, and even the texture of the keys themselves are fantastic. However...they are squeaky. It seriously sounds like there is a little mouse under there and every time I type a letter he's poked with a little spike so that he then screams in his little mousey squeak voice and runs to the other side beneath the keyboard only to be stabbed again by the next letter. I had a hamster when I was a kid that would bite the living daylights out of any poor person (or cat) that happened to place anything made of flesh inside the bars of its cage. It had this wheel that it always ran on when anyone was trying to sleep. I swear in the deepest darkest silence of night that hamster wheel was nowhere near as squeaky as these keys. I'd spray some WD40 on them but they're spill resistant so no lubricant would get down in there anyway. Plus with my luck I'd be electrocuted and it would then explode into a fireball and my family doesn't want to read headlines and my obituary containing a can of lubricant and an electrical fire.

Overall Review: Honestly if you are looking for a Chromebook (something just to check e-mail, watch a few videos, and maintain social media accounts) and you want one that can take a decent amount of abuse this is a fantastic product and I would definitely recommend it.

Photos have been photoshopped: Much thicker!

Pros: Rugged

Cons: The photos in the gallery have been photoshopped and the dimensions are inaccurate. It's listed as 0.9" but it's actually closer to 1 1/4" because it has this ridiculously thick rubber bar.

Compare the photos at the top of the listing with about six side views in the image gallery. All of them have been photoshopped to remove the rubber bar. And the bar makes it impossible to fit into tight cases, tablet pockets, etc., which is what I was trying to do with it. I assume the photoshopped images were provided by Asus, but I'm really surprised that a site as reputable as newegg would not have inspected the images more closely before using them.

In short: do not buy. Clunky and on one end it's as thick as something from the 90s.

Outstanding Chromebook!

Pros: + Love the size for portability
+ Instant on - ready within seconds
+ 2 USB 3.0 slots
+ SD slot for additional storage
+ HDMI out
+ 11.5" screen size w/anti glare coating
+ Great battery life at around 9 to 10 hours
+ Keyboard while small has nice feel to it.
+ Keyboard is spill resistant
+ Rubberized edging around it
+ Rubberized prop on back for stability/anti slide
+ Case has a rugged feel to it - it is drop proof to 4 foot

Cons: - Resolution is 1366 x 768
- Screen has a narrow field of view
- No touch screen
- No back lighting on the keyboard
- Keep in mind these are minor nitpicks

Overall Review: Let me start by saying I have worked around computers for years. I was a electronic tech for 15 years and have built computers and repaired many of them. However this is the first chromebook I have ever used. Both of my boys have used chromebooks in their school. After using this ASUS chromebook both say this is much nicer than the ones they have used. I have used it every day for about 2 weeks now and can honestly say I really like it. I have several desktops, a 15.5" laptop, a tablet and a phone. I like using this chromebook for my everyday reading of mail, surfing the web and watching Netflix. It takes no time to get familiar with the chrome operating system. Also as a chromebook it doesn't access the Play Store for Android apps but uses the Web Store. Upcoming updates are said to allow the use of Android apps on certain if not all chromebooks. Also you can only install programs on it found on the Web Store. Google docs is a very useful tool and similar in many respects to office for many tasks. The Chrome OS is such a simple OS system that antivirus software is not an issue. If you think you have picked up something or having an issue, simply go into advanced settings and perform a Powerwash. Your chromebook will refresh itself in a matter of minutes and be like new again. Unboxing and setting it up was super easy. Merely power it on, follow the prompts and login with your Google account. You will receive an offer for 100 Gb of online storage via Google Drive for 2 years and 90 days of unlimited Google Play music free. After that you are ready to go. The chromebook is ultra quick to start up and ready to use. Closing the lid puts it to sleep. Great for when you are running around the house. The screen is not the highest resolution at 1366x768, compared to many tablets and laptops these days. I did not have any problem there. The only thing I did notice was you need to be looking at the screen within a narrow range or it darkens rather quickly. Not a big problem but noticeable nonetheless. Some will find the lack of a touch screen a big minus. I don't have a problem with that. The keyboard is outstanding in feel and layout. I have a desktop and a laptop with keyboards that I constantly miss the keys on. This one seems much better and feels better also. My only complaint is the lack of back lighting or some type of keyboard lighting. It would help for those times sitting on the couch or in bed. Okay so another minor nitpick. The speakers are ported out the front sides and were very adequate in my opinion. They are louder than the ones in my laptop. It has a jack on the left side for headphones. Being a chromebook, everything is set up to save to Google Drive hence the minimal storage. There is a SD slot on the left side for additional storage. I mounted a 64GB Samsung EVO in it an it was detected immediately. I have watched several hours of Netflix with it without a stutter. I did watch a couple live football games via Comcast/ESPN and noticed stutter there. I decided that is most likely a result of Comcast and not the chromebook.
To sum up: I really really like this chromebook. It may not replace a laptop completely, but for many users, it will perform the routine tasks of reading emails, browsing and shopping the web, facebook and such. It is certainly a viable alternative to many sub par sluggish cheap laptops. If you are looking for an Android or even Windows tablet then this probably will not satisfy you. As many have stated if you are looking for a portable laptop for your son or daughter and do not want to put out a big sum, for fear they may destroy it; then I believe this chromebook will satisfy the vast majority of consumers. If you are still undecided do a search for additional reviews and read what others have said. I could not be happier with it! I give it 5 Eggs and a big thumbs up!

Great for young students

Pros: + Exceptional build quality
+ Good performance
+ Keyboard has a nice feel to it
+ USB 3.0, HDMI, SD Card slots
+ Anti-glare finish
+ Easy set up

Cons: - Keyboard is not backlit
- No touch screen
(Both are minor nitpicks at this price point)

Overall Review: The ASUS C202SA-YS02 Chromebook is marketed with durability for young students in mind, and after using it for about a week, I can say it will perform admirable in that role. For those looking for something more portable than a laptop, but with more productivity and durability than a tablet, this will fit the bill nicely.

The build quality of this Chromebook is outstanding. It has a rugged feel to it, and a bumper runs around the perimeter of the unit. It feels like a little laptop. There is also a rubber strip under it that lifts the unit off of your desk and provides grip, perfect for angled desks. My 11 year old daughter uses Chromebooks at her elementary school and loves them. When I asked her what she thought of this one she said this one was much better.

Setup was easy: charge it and turn it on. Log in with your Google account and you’re ready to go. In minutes I was connected to wifi and downloading apps like Netflix and Spotify from the Chrome store. All of the most popular Google productivity apps are pre-installed. You also get 100GB of space on Google Drive for two years.

Speaking of apps, this Chromebook uses the Chrome store, which is a little different than the Play store. You’ll find most – but not all – apps here. I could be wrong but I believe this Chromebook is on the list of approved hardware to receive Android apps, but I couldn’t find where to install them. With that said, without a touch screen there could be some compatibility issues for those apps. I consider this a very minor issue at this price point.

Remember - Chromebooks are not meant to be laptops. Don’t expect to run intense 3D games. This is meant for productivity and young students, and it shines in that role. All of the apps you need – Excel, Word, OneNote, Outlook – are available on the Chrome store and work well. Performance is good, as long as you keep your expectations in check. Netflix streamed wirelessly without hiccups, and it looks great on the 11 inch screen. I think the 4GB of RAM helps a lot here. While a quad core CPU would have been better, if things start to slow down just close some apps. The Chrome OS itself is nice and responsive overall.

The 16GB of space seem a bit low nowadays, but thankfully it has an SD card slot, so space is easily expanded. There is also the aforementioned Google Drive space (100GB for two years free). There are also two USB ports to add external drives or a mouse (I use a Bluetooth Microsoft Sculpt mouse). There is also an HDMI port so you can share your screen with a TV or projector.

Overall this is a very nice Chromebook. Just remember what Chromebooks are intended for: light productivity (checking email, typing documents, browsing for the most part) at a very affordable price point. Don’t expect it to perform like your $400 tablet. I have one of those with a rugged keyboard and case and it blows this out of the water performance-wise – for nearly THREE times the price of course. In my opinion, this is perfect for a pre-teen who wants a laptop but isn’t quite there yet. If I gave this to my daughter and she had it for a year and then broke it, I would not be devastated. But if I gave her one of those costly tablets or a laptop and she broke it, it would be painful. Asus has done a great job designing an affordable, durable product ideal for the audience for which it is intended –students. I highly recommend it.

3/ 5

Pros: -Durability, drop and liquid resistance levels are fantastic, can survive a 1/4 cup of water or around a 4 foot drop.
-4GB 1600mhz Ram
-Repairable or at least significantly more repairable than a tablet.
-EXTREMELY long battery life you can literally get 8+ hrs of constant use at times.
-ChromeOS instead of Android (also still supports android apps.)
-Better GPU integrated video chipset than most tablets/chromebooks.

Cons: Almost everything else.. for an adult.

The price: For nearing 2017 the price feels way too high for its hardware capabilities I would honestly believe that half of the price is simply for its durability.

The CPU: Only 2 cores & most last gen cell phones have a better one or >even some better 2 gens back<, there are >nearly 3 year old< android tablets with 1.8ghz+ quad cores that have higher performance ratings and are new for under 80$ with same primary storage space as this thing (but you can't pour water on those or drop them..).

The 'HD' camera: its hard to pinpoint the quality but there's no information anywhere on what quality the camera actually is and I cant figure it out 100% for myself. I am quite certain its a 0.9MP sensor, at the time of writing this both newegg and manufacturer simply say 'HD camera' or 'HD webcam'. Keep in mind 1280x720 which is a 0.9MP sensor would be 'HD' minimum and all cameras upscale and resample the effective resolution. Which unfortunately makes it impossible to tell what type of image quality sensor this has for sure based on photos 'resolution' but I am definitely sure its below 2MP (or its a really cheap sensor) its 1.3MP at best as it sure looks like one that I have.

Overall Review: About price: If your interested in this at all i can only assume its for its durability, so if its worth that much to you to have something that's nearly as unbreakable as its going to get then the extra costs might not be an issue.

About CPU: Even though the CPU itself isn't to great the GPU integrated with it is, its probably one of the fastest mobile graphics units available for the price.... but.... funnily enough I almost wanted to add a con to battery life stating how the battery life is so high .. but its because it draws so little power cause the Chromebook itself doesn't have any 'power' to it to use haha. For real though I don't think this thing even has the CPU power to fully utilize its own graphics potential which is a new level of weird I've never seen before (cause they're both Intel and on same chip). Oh wait its 4gb ram makes it great for multitasking apps which would normally slow down most tablets or alternative compact notebooks... then again it still doesn't have the CPU cores to really multitask very well either..

In the end this review just gives me a headache.. this is the most 'okay' or downright confusing item I've ever encountered as it shouldn't have cost them ANY more at all to throw in a quad core and make this thing actually be worthwhile.. The intel n3160 quad core came out at the exact same time, same retail price and same motherboard socket as this ones dual core n3060 processor? The quad even has the same power requirements and graphics. There's even 3MP image sensors for like 3$ or so in bulk. This really just doesn't make much sense to market such a random selection of budget parts.

Its good points barely outweigh the bad and then when they do its functionally irrelevant anyway?... examples being plenty of RAM to multitask but lack of cpu cores to multitask well, almost same issue for graphics being great. Batteries amazingly long lasting at least.

I guess let's just hope the cuts to potential wasn't ASUS being cheap and just trying to make the product stay charged for a full school day.

I'll still stand by the only reason I could think of to even think of this is for its durability but that's exactly all its marketed for really. I guess its 5/5 perfect if you want something that's significantly more than good enough for homework & hard for kids to break by accident, but there's nothing I can think of that would make this worthwhile/noteworthy to me personally it's a very low 3 for me.

Things that would make this a 5/5 for me quad core CPU & ultra high molecular weight polyethylene casing (cause it already doesn't make sense might as well go all the way and make it bulletproof, then again it is for kids and could be useful).
