ASUS C201 11.6 Inch Chromebook

If you’re looking for an affordable portable computer, look no further than the latest Chromebooks, including this Asus C201 11.6-Inch Chromebook, which is currently discounted to only $180. This model was released less than a year ago and has earned a rating of 4.2 out of 5 stars on Amazon based on more than 1,000 reviews.

For a budget computer, this laptop packs power, thanks in part to a Rockchip 3288-C Quad-Core 1.8GHz processor with up to 4GB RAM that lets you multitask and instantly switch between your apps and several browser tabs, all while staying energy efficient. The laptop is enhanced with Trusted Platform Module hardware security that protects your sensitive information at all times.

The 11.6-­inch display features a 1366-by-768 pixel glossy HD display providing vivid high-definition image quality. A single charge yields up to 13 hours of battery life, and you’ll be able to work more efficiently thanks to 802.11ac wireless, which provides up to three times faster wireless speeds. For a portable laptop that weighs only 2 pounds and is just about 0.7-inches thick, it provides plenty of workspace.

This easy-on-the-eyes Asus C201 11.6-Inch Chromebook normally retails for $199 but is currently discounted to $179 on Amazon, providing a $20 (10 percent) savings.
