The holidays are fast approaching, so if you’re not yet done with your gift shopping, you should get on it before the discounts are gone and stocks are depleted. If one of the items on your list is a budget laptop, you might want to take a look at the available Chromebook deals, including Best Buy’s $50 discount on this Asus Chromebook that lowers its price to $199 from $249, along with the promise that you’ll receive the laptop in time for Christmas.
The Asus Chromebook C423 features a 14-inch HD anti-glare display with 1366 x 768 resolution, encased in an aluminum-finished lid for a premium look and feel that makes it stand out. The laptop is equipped with an Intel Celeron N3350 processor with 4GB of RAM, which is more than enough for daily tasks such as working with documents and doing research online.
One of the main selling points of the Asus Chromebook C423 is its 180-degree hinge, allowing the laptop to be laid flat to easily share content with other people. Asus promises long-term durability for the hinge, so you don’t have to worry about breaking the Chromebook after just a few attempts at folding it out completely. Asus also claims up to 10 hours on a single charge for the laptop, which should be more than enough time for you to use it with confidence while on the go.
The storage of the Asus Chromebook C423 is just 32GB eMMC, as being a Chromebook, it utilizes cloud storage for your files. Chromebooks are powered by Chrome OS, which is basically the Google Chrome browser reworked into an operating system that heavily depends on web-based apps. This allows you to ditch traditional installed software so that the laptop starts up quickly with snappy performance.
The Asus C423 will not match up to high-end gaming machines, but if all you need is a laptop that can perform basic functions such as browsing the internet and joining online meetings, this Chromebook will get the job done. Best Buy is offering the Asus C423 for only $199, after a $50 discount to its original price of $249, but if you want to receive the Chromebook in time for Christmas as a gift for a loved one or for yourself, you shouldn’t hold back on clicking that Buy Now button.
