This is a very good looking laptop for this price. It has a lightweight design and is incredibly simple to set up. You can get started using this laptop incredibly quickly, and the fact that it looks a lot more expensive than it is goes a long way to countering some of the cons. It works hard, and the loading time is incredible. The keyboard is fantastic too, although that is somewhat negated by the fact that the sound from the speakers is not great. You will have to look after this machine as it is prone to scratches, especially on the back. Where this really shines as a budget laptop is in the battery life. It will last a long time when straight out of the box, and that battery will not decay much either. That means that you can expect around 10-hours of battery life between charges, making this ideal for those prioritizing portability.
As one of the nicest looking Chromebooks in this price range, the ASUS Chromebook C300 is a good option for those that are used to Chromebooks and are looking for a second laptop. It has a remarkably fun to use keyboard that has just the right amount of click and spring to make it fun to work with, and the battery life is absolutely phenomenal. As one of the cheaper Chromebooks on the market, expect slightly less processing power an RAM compared to more expensive versions, however, this doesn't stop this choice being a great machine for performing the basics on. Ideal for more casual users, or those that are looking for a second laptop to do grunt work on, you won't go wrong with this choice. If you try to do too much with this laptop you're going to notice slow-downs and the occasional crash, but that shouldn't put you off if you're looking for a reliable laptop that can do the essentials.
These laptops come in an unconventional package that stands out from the typical greys and blacks that are common with such devices.
