Chromebooks really aren’t easy to find right now with stock very limited across pretty much all retailers. If you’re keen to snap one up, we’ve found the ideal deal for you in the form of the Asus Chromebook C523NA. It’s at Newegg right now for $380, working out at a very modest $5 saving.
Now, we appreciate that the saving isn’t the deal here. Instead, it’s the fact you can actually buy a new Chromebook somewhere. Stock has been increasingly tough to track down in recent months and if you’re keen to grab a productivity-focused laptop, you really can’t go wrong with a Chromebook. The Asus Chromebook C523NA covers all the bases you need to consider.
It has a 15.6-inch HD anti-glare screen that has a super narrow bezel so you can focus on your work rather than the distracting bezel around the display. Alongside that is a 180-degree hinge so you can lay it flat to easily view content with others. It’s lightweight, too, with an overall weight of only about 3.1 pounds and a thin .6-inch profile so it looks the part as well and won’t take up too much room in your bag.
The Asus Chromebook C523NA is powered by an Intel Dual-Core Celeron N3350 processor with 4GB of memory so you can multitask reasonably well if you need to. There’s only 32GB of eMMC storage but that’s pretty standard for a Chromebook of this price since the focus is on storing all your files on the cloud via Google apps and the Google Play Store.
The focus here is on giving you a great device for studying with or typing up work-related projects but thanks to the great screen and the high-quality stereo speakers that are built-in, the Asus Chromebook C523NA is also pretty good for when you want to unwind with a movie or show from your favorite streaming service.
However you use the Asus Chromebook C523NA, expect a battery life of about 10 hours which should be plenty to power you through the working day. USB-C connectivity means it will recharge more speedily than could be achieved with previous connection types, too.
The Asus Chromebook C523NA is ordinarily priced at $385 but it’s down to $380 right now. That’s not much of a discount but as we said, Chromebooks are very hard to buy new right now. This is the ideal opportunity to finally buy that Chromebook you’ve been wanting for so long.
