A big boon for Chromebooks is the fact that they’re extremely cheap relative to traditional laptops. But who says that a cheap Chromebook has to have crappy hardware? The ASUS Chromebook C200MA-DS01 tries to be among one of the most affordable Chromebooks available, while at the same time providing some pretty decent hardware, especially for the price. Is this ASUS Chromebook a good buy if you’re in the market for a quality laptop replacement, or should you pass on it? Let’s take a look.

At the end of the review, you’ll be able to enter a giveaway for a chance to win a unit!

About the ASUS Chromebook C200MA-DS01

The ASUS Chromebook C200MA-DS01 is on the cheaper end of the Chromebook market — at $249, it’s only bested by the Acer C720 in terms of price. However, for just $249 dollars, you’d expect pretty horrid specifications, but that’s not the case. The ASUS Chromebook C200MA-DS01 includes an Intel Celeron “Bay Trail” rated at 2.16 GHz (turbo up to 2.41 GHz), which is one of the newest Celeron chips.

It also comes with a 16GB solid state hard drive, 2GB of RAM, a webcam with an undisclosed amount of megapixels, and a 1366 x 768 resolution on the 11.6″ display. It even has 802.11ac WiFi and an advertised battery life of 11 hours. Yes, eleven hours. It also includes a combo audio jack, a USB 3.0 port, a USB 2.0 port, an SD card reader, and an HDMI port.

Competitors

Like I mentioned earlier, it aims to be one of the least expensive Chromebooks around. The Acer C720 is cheaper, but it has a worse processor, only 802.11n WiFi, and a shorter 8.5-hour battery life. Another competitor is the Toshiba CB35-A3120, which costs a bit more at $279, has a shorter 9-hour battery life, but it does have a better processor and a 13.3-inch display. In my opinion, the ASUS Chromebook is a better choice compared to these two because it has respectable performance with its newer chipset, is lighter, has good build quality, and the best battery life around. And if you’re a road warrior, the extra battery life will be especially important as you’ll be much more likely to go through the day without having to stop once to recharge.

Other Chromebooks are also competitors, though not as directly since they are more costly (such as the $319 Samsung Chromebook 2 Samsung Chromebook 2 Review and Giveaway Samsung Chromebook 2 Review and Giveaway It's been out for a while, and Samsung has finally released its successor, the Samsung Chromebook 2. Read More , which we reviewed).

Packaging

The packaging for the Chromebook is very straightforward. The box has an eye-catching exterior, and once opened, the Chromebook is featured in the middle; an owner’s manual and warranty information underneath, and then the power brick under the left cardboard fold. Like most other Chromebooks, there’s not much else to it — it’s simple and allows you to just plug it in and get straight down to work.

Design and Built Quality

The Chromebook has a very appealing black and silver design, where the entire display, keyboard, and outward-facing surfaces are black while the surface around the keyboard and the ports are silver. This is a good idea so that any scratches won’t be as noticeable as if this area was black as well.

Other than that, the design is very similar to other Chromebooks — the keyboard keys have the same font, the Caps Lock button is still replaced with a search button, and so on. The display is attached to the rest of the Chromebook similarly to MacBooks, which means it’s very stable.

As a reference to compare to other devices, this ASUS Chromebook has dimensions of 12 x 7.90 x 0.80 inches and a weight of 2.5 pounds. This makes it very easy to pack and go without being burdened by it.

The build quality is quite exceptional. There are no creaks, the materials don’t feel as cheap as they probably are (it’s completely plastic, by the way), and it sits firmly on a flat table. Everything just feels solid and not like anything should break. There is only one flaw for the build quality however — the trackpad. It simply doesn’t feel as solid as the rest of the Chromebook, and even rattles a bit if your finger happens to “bounce” a bit across the trackpad while you’re moving your finger around.

Display

Considering that the display is only 11.6 inches diagonally, the 1366 x 768 pixel resolution is pretty impressive. That doesn’t mean it’s a high-density resolution display, but for a screen that small, ASUS could have gotten away with a lower resolution — but I’m glad they didn’t. The colors are vibrant and well represented, and the viewing angles are very good.

Keyboard and Trackpad

The keyboard on this Chromebook is fantastic. The keys are sufficiently spaced apart so that you don’t have to worry about hitting neighboring keys unintentionally, and there’s enough travel on each key press so that you get a very satisfying response to that you actually pressed a key, unlike shallow key travel which can make you wonder sometimes whether you actually pressed that key or not.

The trackpad, on the other hand, isn’t quite as nice. It’s acceptable and gets the job done, but it doesn’t feel very good. Out of everything, the trackpad is the only item that feels “loose” or generally has poorer build quality. You can definitely feel it whenever you’re clicking on the trackpad. It’s a bit annoying, but it still works and doesn’t always feel like that. You’ll be especially fine if you teach yourself to place your finger on the trackpad lightly as the issues are more likely to appear to if you drag your finger around with a good amount of pressure. A light touch will be recognized just fine and won’t cause any issues as described above.

Webcam and Microphone

Sadly, ASUS does not say how many megapixels the webcam has. However, I found out that the webcam runs at just 800 x 600 pixels, which translates into 0.48 megapixels. The microphone, which is on the left of the webcam, works acceptably as well. That is the only microphone it has which is why sound quality won’t be splendid, but like other items onboard, it’s good enough to get the job done. Between the webcam and microphone is the webcam operation indicator.

While these are very lackluster specifications, it does work. This is just one of the areas where sacrifices had to be made. But be assured that it will work well enough for Google Hangouts video calls and the like.

Speakers

For a cheap Chromebook, I was expecting the speakers to be subpar, and I wasn’t completely wrong. The speakers aren’t great, but they also didn’t sound like tin cans. The sound quality was decent, but bass was lacking. The sounds come through small slits on the bottom, near the front edge. I personally think that these slits are too small and are part of the problem. In any case, the speakers are good enough for watching videos, so they get the job done.

Performance

Performance is very good for such a small system. The dual-core Bay Trail-based processor can boost itself up to 2.41 GHz, which is quite a bit more than most other Chromebooks. There’s virtually no lag anywhere — it just chugs along as it pleases. The only issue I did come across was when I tried to play some YouTube videos in 1080p. It did tend to stutter occasionally in that scenario, but you should probably be using 720p quality anyways as you’ll get virtually no quality benefit from watching 1080p (at least none that you can percieve on such a small screen), especially for the performance hit you’ll encounter.

Sadly, I wasn’t able to test out the wireless chipset’s true potential. The hardware can support 802.11ac, but that will only be enabled in an update released sometime in Q3 this year. Yes, it’s Q3 right now, but the support still hasn’t been released yet. I had to make do with 802.11n, which in all honesty isn’t the end of the world. It works well, as expected.

Battery Life

Never before have I seen an advertised battery life of 11 hours on a Chromebook. The previous record was approximately 9 hours. Of course I had to put this claim to the test, and I found that it doesn’t quite get the 11 hours that ASUS claims, but it did a very respectable 9.5 hours with a low screen brightness and some casual use (very small amounts of YouTube).

That’s still better than any other Chromebook that I’ve tested so far, and it’s even more impressive that you can get the longest battery life on one of the cheapest Chromebooks available at just $249. This is most likely thanks to the Bay Trail-based processor that’s included in this Chromebook, which means that it even beats both Samsung Chromebooks (the first and second generation) which use energy-efficient ARM-based processors.

Should you buy the ASUS Chromebook C200MA-DS01?

Now that we’ve taken a detailed look at every part of the Chromebook, how good is it with everything put together? Overall, it’s a very good Chromebook, especially for the price. It isn’t perfect, but it is definitely worth the money. Great build quality, good hardware, but a mediocre trackpad make the ASUS Chromebook C200MA-DS01 something to highly consider while shopping. I normally place a lot of importance on trackpads since that’s one of the most-used input devices, but the trackpad found on the C200MA-DS01 isn’t that debilitating, so I’m still okay with it.

Our verdict of the ASUS Chromebook C200MA-DS01:
MakeUseOf recommends: Buy it. It’s a great Chromebook, and worth the money despite the few imperfections.

  5. K. Finn

    I think the price seems very reasonable, but it does still happen to be out of reach for me presently (or at least justification-wise).

  6. Sandra Gray
    August 16, 2014 at 5:11 am

    I think it's worth $249. Of course, it could be less expensive and I wouldn't complain. Or at least it could boost some of the things that makeuseof pointed out like the sound. I don't have any experience with these so 2GB of ram and 16GB of hard drive don't seem like much when one could buy a full fledged computer with double the ram and more than double the hard drive for a couple hundred more. I'm guessing it just depends on one's needs but I don't know that I'd want this instead of a regular computer, maybe in addition to one.

    Thanks so much for the review! We don't want our grandson using a school-owned Chromebook for privacy reasons and are going to buy one for him to use. We looked at them today and saw this one. You've answered a lot of our questions. This sounds great for the money, but I know the issue you mentioned with the trackpad would make me crazy and may do the same to him. We may decide to purchase a little more expensive Chromebook for that reason (unless I win, of course!)

    Asus makes some absolutely terrific laptops; however, comparing the C200MA with the C710 and/or the C720 I don't really feel it's really worth $250... I would be more inclined to give serious consideration to the machine if it was at or below $200!

  62. Hunter

    I bought a netbook back when it was popular. Completely regret it. I feel the same about this product. The screen is too darn small. It too weak to do what a real computer does. It will become unusable in a short period of time. Save up for a real computer if budget is the issue.

    August 6, 2014 at 1:01 am

    Chromebooks are great for students. I would like one for my classroom as several students can log in their own accounts without setting up the entire laptop as their own. I think this type of computer is what schools will be looking for in the future.

  92. Eduardo G
    August 6, 2014 at 12:29 am

    I'd say the price should be a flat 200 with the specs it has. 300 if it were equipped with a higher res screen and better trackpad. I understand you can't have everything you like on a cheapish cloud based laptop but my recommendations are justifiable. These laptops are made for those who can't afford a laptop for college and the like. So if one has to search the web countless hours for info it'd be nice to do it comfortably.

  96. Jon W
    August 5, 2014 at 6:57 pm

    With all its elegance, ASUS Chromebook is worth its price! More power! :D

    August 5, 2014 at 4:40 am

    i think its specification is fine....
    - with latest Celeron chip and a 16GB solid state hard drive
    - battery life of 11 hours.
    - looks great

    i think it's worth $249

    Yes, I think it's worth the price :-)

  127. Sam

    It actually seems more than worth the money- good luck finding a laptop that even works for $250, right?

  128. ellen beck
    August 3, 2014 at 11:28 pm

    Yes, its small light and would be very much worth the money. It is a nice student computer.

    but worth it

  136. pceasies
    August 3, 2014 at 4:47 pm

    It's a great little device, but I honestly don't think it's worth it.

    A refurb Nexus 7 16GB can be had for $140 or less. An Anker bluetooth keyboard is $20, and a nice stand case is less than $20. So for $180 you get a tablet with more functionality and a higher quality screen and the same or longer battery life. The only downside is a little bit smaller screen size and it isn't all attached. You could get a bigger 10" tablet, keyboard, case combo for a similar price and Android + touchscreen would be nicer than ChromeOS, imo.

  137. Ron Bowman

  153. Jennifer Phillips

  162. Crystal Marie Cañete
    August 2, 2014 at 11:35 pm

    I think it's worth the prize considering it's made by Asus. I have an old model of laptop from them and it's still alive and kicking at the age of 6. =)

  163. K. P
    August 2, 2014 at 10:01 pm

    It certainly fits my budget. Interesting review - hard to figure some of it out. I guess it depends what you are looking for in a notebook.

  164. mohammad ali
    August 2, 2014 at 9:42 pm

  167. Benedict J Hollamby
    August 2, 2014 at 7:33 pm

    I would say they are worth the money - like a lot of google stuff I think you tend to get a hell of a lot of hardware for your money - althoug h I don't like the cheaper chromebooks too much like this one because they just feel a bit too plastic-y so when I buy one (I think I will be getting one for school soon as I have to type all my work and have already been doing all my work in google Drive anyway) so I think it's true the more expensive ones are worth the money (mebbe not the Pixel) but not for this asus

  170. Stephen D

    I'm not sure if chromebooks in general are worth it. For just a little more money, you can buy a full-fledged notebook computer, with a lot more usefulness.

    My son actually has this computer (he's 15 and lives with his dad) but it is a nice value for what you get. He even "games" on it, although he does say he is saving for an actual gaming computer with more speed/memory

  175. Igor Andrusenko

  178. Lee Smallwood

    I was going to buy the Toshiba, but this review has put the Asus in serious contention. It's really down to the screen size, I think.

    yes i think it is worth 249.99 but i like great discounts so at 199.99 i would bite . everything goes on sale bro . but for 199 now that's a sweet spot . but yeah if i needed one right now i'd bite @ 249 .

  191. Gaurav Bhargava

  194. Joe

    Asus and Chromebook, what could be bad?! I think it's worth it considering that top of the line tablets and bottom of the line notebooks usually start at at least $100 more.

  203. Akari

  237. Mislav
    August 1, 2014 at 4:34 pm

    It's probably worth the money. I'll go in more detail after I winn it :-)

  239. Roger C

    I'd say yes. Every gadget that exist in your blog is. I guess you wouldn't plug anything which ain't worth it at all right?

  246. Mario Cremona
    August 1, 2014 at 2:36 pm

    Wish this had better battery life; All the other chromebooks are in this range anyways

  249. Susan
    August 1, 2014 at 2:16 pm

    YES it's absolutely worth the $249! Design wise it's a nice looking machine, small enough to carry with you wherever you go and the battery life is insane! Okay so maybe you didn't get the full 11 hours but I'd be thrilled with 9 1/2... add to that the new Bay Trail processor and I think this one's a winner. $249 is a great price.

  250. Daphne
    August 1, 2014 at 2:12 pm

    Yes it is a great Chromebook for a really cheap price!

  261. Ted W
    August 1, 2014 at 11:30 am

    with all the equipment I've got right now, it's not worth $249 to me.

    It's Awesome! Great price.

  263. Emmanuel F

    This would be awesome for my kid brother

    yes of course...

  269. D Mistry
    August 1, 2014 at 8:13 am

    I think the laptop looks great. I just wish it had touchscreen. I am definitely digging the trackpad size, the fact that it has 802.11ac, USB 3.0, and hdmi out. I think that basically covers 95% of my needs.

    And well, of course it's worth the price. It's a "current generation" laptop for $250. That just blows my mind. I can't imagine ASUS making much money on this.

  270. Mark P.
    August 1, 2014 at 7:03 am

    The price $249 for this Chromebook is just about right!

  271. Toby

    It seems like an awesome little unit. I'd love to give it a test drive.

  274. Vedran C-h

  281. Matthew P
    August 1, 2014 at 2:58 am

    Although I have yet to personal test the Asus Chromebook based off of #makeuseof review of it I think it would be a great buy at $249 but would be even better if I won it in this contest!

  282. Paul Tomosoiu
    August 1, 2014 at 2:38 am

    of course, cheap & strong!

  283. Matthew W
    August 1, 2014 at 2:33 am

    $249 is a bargain for this machine!

  284. Simon Reidy
    August 1, 2014 at 2:01 am

    What an awesome little device. I'm already hooked into Google's ecosystem with everything I do online, so I like the idea of syncing everything with Chrome OS. I really need a portable light-weight device that gives me great battery life.

  285. jeff
    August 1, 2014 at 1:54 am

    based on the review it seems like a great deal

  286. Elkhalil
    August 1, 2014 at 1:50 am

    Yes it is a nice deal .. but if I could get one for free then I will not say no (^^)
    Thank you so much MakeUseOf for this chance.

  287. Kate
    August 1, 2014 at 12:53 am

    Sounds fantastic! Now I really really want one :)

  288. sherry k

  290. Stefanie Foote

    I think the pricetag is reasonable for what it does and based on the review. I know I'd like to have one!

  291. Lori P
    July 31, 2014 at 11:33 pm

    Sounds like really good value for the price. Very respectable battery life and much to recommend it!

  293. George A

    $249 sounds like a good deal, but getting one from MakeUseOf would be better.

  294. George A
    July 31, 2014 at 11:13 pm

    That seems like a good price for a Chromebook and I need one..

  295. Pravas Kumar

    Yup I think I can spend that kind of amount on such devices.

    Perfect and I'd like to have it..... :)

  298. Andrew
    July 31, 2014 at 9:33 pm

    I think it's probably worth the moolah.

  299. David Smith
    July 31, 2014 at 9:19 pm

    I think it is worth the $249 price. It isn't as powerful as a mid to higher end laptop, but seems to be on par for lower end to mid range laptops and I like a lot of the Chrome apps and the Chrome browser anyway.

  300. Travis Faulkner
    July 31, 2014 at 9:12 pm

    Yeah Id say its only worth that.

  301. Vickie Mason
    July 31, 2014 at 8:55 pm

  302. Dmitry Yakusevich

    Never used a chromebook before, but the price is really good for such a device! I would try it.

  303. Kendall B
    July 31, 2014 at 8:43 pm

    It's worth the price tag.

  304. Javier Neria
    July 31, 2014 at 8:26 pm

    It looks pretty decent for the price but I think that they should've lowered down the price a bit more.

  305. Florentin
    July 31, 2014 at 8:24 pm

    It's an Asus, a best buy.

  306. Bob Carbaugh
    July 31, 2014 at 8:08 pm

    Seems like a functional, decently made appliance within its limitations and intended uses...worth its low/reasonable price, with good battery endurance, power & speed of the processor and storage in a small, light, go anywhere digital companion. I am just considering adding a mobile or laptop to my tools/toys and will definitely consider the Asus C200MA

  307. Oshada B
    July 31, 2014 at 8:05 pm

    looks nice, and resonable

  308. Tricia Hope
    July 31, 2014 at 8:02 pm

    Yes it is worth that price for sure!

  309. Zoran
    July 31, 2014 at 8:00 pm

    That is reasonable price

  310. Mike Tschann
    July 31, 2014 at 7:49 pm

    It's worth the suggested price

  311. Kim
    July 31, 2014 at 7:40 pm

    $249 is so cheap for a laptop. I'd love to win it for my son who's going to University in the fall

  315. Catherine R.

  316. Steve G

    I'm not a big fan of Chrome Books, but this one may be worth the money.

  317. Alex K

    Seems like it's worth it. Though I dont know how far you can go with 16 GB SSD nowadays

  318. greg

  323. Joel G
    July 31, 2014 at 4:53 pm

    It is definitely worth the $249. The Asus Chromebox M004U is a good option too if you are looking at a home office setup

    July 31, 2014 at 3:12 pm

    I just bought the C720 and I actually got a great deal (around $150?) but this review is making me think I should return it to get this model or just get this model & hand off my 720 to a friend...I love the Chromebook and Acer has done a great job of making these crazy affordable and as the review says not crappy like you might expect!

  338. Alessio A
    July 31, 2014 at 3:06 pm

  355. Rebecca P

  362. James Runkle
    July 31, 2014 at 12:20 pm

    I'd probably use it as a back up for work more than watching video, but for the price, its pretty good.

  363. Benedikt Falke
    July 31, 2014 at 12:20 pm

    It does seem worth it :)

  364. Ron Ablang

    It seems worth it. I trust your opinion.

  365. Shikha Jain
    July 31, 2014 at 12:12 pm

    Yes . With these set of feature surely it is worth the price of $249

  366. Youssef Azza
    July 31, 2014 at 12:11 pm

    Indeed it is worth it and have perfect performance with good battery life .

  367. Michelle D.

  369. Michael N.

    For 250USD? I don't see a problem here with such price tag. You get what you pay fore, i guess..

  370. Cenation Pride

  371. Natalie

  372. Tate S

    Yes, it is, but it would be great if the price is lowered a little bit more

  373. Robert Tschinkel

    Yes it is worth the price, affordable, easy to use

  374. Daniel Lawrence

    I think that the 2.1GHz of the c200 is a big step up as compared to its competitors.........

  375. Marco
    July 31, 2014 at 11:21 am

    Definitely worth the price, cheap, have good performance and long battery life. It's perfect to work =)

    My experiences with ASUS computers hasnt been good. Especially with temperature that it is is running at and overheating.

    Looking at this ASUS, given its small size for portability and its price point I would expect some things to be of a better quality. The camera and the microphone especially, it doesnt allow this to a portable device to take on overseas trips to contact home or skype with. If going to spend that much would expect you could use those items.

  385. Lakshay K
    July 31, 2014 at 9:55 am

    C200ma is actually quite good for the price.

  386. Dick
    July 31, 2014 at 9:46 am

    I would say, based on your review, that you do get your money's worth from the ASUS Chromebook.

  387. Wally Krasiy

  388. Jacson

  391. Ryan Heatherly

  398. Taz W

  399. Jerome
    July 31, 2014 at 7:49 am

    I've never used a ChromeBook before, but that's quite a reasonable price for the specs. So it's definitely worth trying!

  400. LorenzoS
    July 31, 2014 at 7:45 am

    Viewed the features it's worth the price.

  401. Kyle

    I think Asus Chromebook c200ma id definitely worth $249.

  404. Debbie W

    I don't know. If I win I will let you know. It sure looks like it would be worth that

  405. Daniel V
    July 31, 2014 at 7:25 am

    Yea! My mom would love it, and if I won it would be her birthday gift. She only goes on-the-web, so it doesn't matter if there is a limit to what you can do. Thanks.

  406. Shashank Kadia
    July 31, 2014 at 7:17 am

    Yes, its worth more than $249.

  407. Alex Maher

    Seems like it's worth it.

  408. Alexander K

    it is big price for me. i can buy laptop for this money.

  409. Kristelle Elaine
    July 31, 2014 at 7:11 am

    I haven't use chromebooks before, but based on your review... It is totally worth it

  410. Patrick S

    Price looks good

  411. Maik
    July 31, 2014 at 7:05 am

    It is worth the price!

  412. Richard M
    July 31, 2014 at 7:04 am

    I own quite a few of ASUS computers and laptops, they seem to be built pretty well and for that price I'd say it is a pretty good buy.

    Good value, worth the price

  415. Alan
    July 31, 2014 at 6:45 am

    I haven't actually priced a chrome book but after reading this I can see it being worth the $249 price

  416. Franz Iulian
    July 31, 2014 at 6:43 am

    Yes

  417. SH
    July 31, 2014 at 6:38 am

    This looks like a great machine - definitely worth the price

  418. Chaitali Das
    July 31, 2014 at 6:33 am

    Given the feature and the price, it is worth it.

  419. Jerry Jacob
    July 31, 2014 at 6:24 am

    Portable and Functional. That is what a Chromebook is all about.

  420. Sveta L

    Sounds okay to me :)

  421. Ostap
    July 31, 2014 at 6:00 am

    i think the price is reasonable enough!

  422. Patrick Van Dyke
    July 31, 2014 at 5:59 am

    With tablets being priced where they are this is definitely worth it. I have always found Asus to be good quality too.

  423. Dharmik M
    July 31, 2014 at 5:47 am

    its OK

  424. Subbarayudu D

    Sound good

  425. Eric Reardon

    Just slightly better the a tablet

  426. Phillip G
    July 31, 2014 at 5:37 am

    I like it and it's comparable to other chromebooks at that price so yeah it's worth it.

  427. Avisha
    July 31, 2014 at 5:28 am

    Yes i think the price is reasonable enough!

  428. Teri M
    July 31, 2014 at 5:28 am

    I have not used a Chromebook but I am sure it is worth the price. My husband really needs a new computer as our desktop is ancient, runs XP which is no longer supported. This sounds easy to use and I am sure he would love it.

  429. Jayne
    July 31, 2014 at 5:26 am

    It's definitely worth the price. In fact, it's way more expensive to get an ASUS here!

  430. Anna
    July 31, 2014 at 5:25 am

    Definitely worth the price! After having a big bulky laptop for a number of years, the new Chromebooks are something I look forward to purchasing at any price.

  431. Mai Tran
    July 31, 2014 at 5:19 am

    I'd definitely pay the sum for such a nice Chromebook.

  432. Rajnish
    July 31, 2014 at 5:13 am

    i think it is worth

  433. Stephanie S
    July 31, 2014 at 4:58 am

    This is a great laptop/notebook? for the money. I would love to get one for one of the grandchildren at that price. It is basic and a novice wouldn't have to know a lot of computer stuff to use it. :)

  434. Anthony
    July 31, 2014 at 4:57 am

    it's a little too high

  435. Geraldine Durant
    July 31, 2014 at 4:54 am

    I have never used a Chrome Book but after reading your article I definitely want one.

  438. Michael Alig

    It's a great deal for the price, and a great intro into the world of Chrome books.

  439. Randi C,
    July 31, 2014 at 4:45 am

    Very reasonable for what you get.

  440. Saad Ahmad
    July 31, 2014 at 4:32 am

    Good. Worth every penny.

  441. Ryan
    July 31, 2014 at 4:28 am

    Seems like a lot of bang for your buck. That battery life is fantastic!

  442. Ken Barnes

    This sounds like a fantastic deal!

  443. El Marko
    July 31, 2014 at 4:26 am

    If the processor is fast enough, then it's probably worth the price. I really like my Dell Chromebook.

  444. Aaron
    July 31, 2014 at 4:20 am

    Looks cool, but not worth it to me.

  445. Lee T

    Pretty good considering the minor flaws.

  446. Varun Narula
    July 31, 2014 at 4:10 am

    Based on the review, it surely seems like a good value for money device

  447. Sonny David Huab
    July 31, 2014 at 4:06 am

    definitely worth the price :D

  448. Jeffrey R
    July 31, 2014 at 4:01 am

    Yes, it is worth it because it is a compact, efficient model.

  449. Cristy Ridey
    July 31, 2014 at 3:58 am

    This would be a great laptop for me. It has a lot of great features.

    absolutely! from reading your review, i think its decent enough for daily activity :)

  451. Branden W

    I would love to have a Chrome book

  452. Sushobhan
    July 31, 2014 at 3:54 am

    Yes for $249, I believe it is all the more worth it.

  453. Steve
    July 31, 2014 at 3:47 am

    I will have to test to find out ;)

  454. Patrick Miller
    July 31, 2014 at 3:44 am

    Being cheaper than some tablets, it's definitely worth the price!

  455. AlSam
    July 31, 2014 at 3:44 am

    I believe it is.

  456. simon
    July 31, 2014 at 3:34 am

    Is it a fanless CPU?

  457. Stan P
    July 31, 2014 at 3:32 am

    If you had asked me before the review if it is worth it then i would have said no - or maybe. I couldn't have known it's actually that good. Thanks for the review and contest!

  458. Sanchay Pahalwani
    July 31, 2014 at 3:28 am

    Yup totally worth it !

  459. Emily
    July 31, 2014 at 3:20 am

    I think $249 is a great value for this product!

  460. Karen J
    July 31, 2014 at 3:08 am

    I think it would be great for students or as a travel computer.

  461. Nipun Shrivastava
    July 31, 2014 at 3:03 am

    Awesome and yes!!!

  462. JeffC
    July 31, 2014 at 3:02 am

    Yes, based on its performance and build quality it is probably worth $249 for what I would use it for.

  463. MikeB
    July 31, 2014 at 3:02 am

    As an internet computer it would be alright but not really to my liking.

  464. Igor
    July 31, 2014 at 3:02 am

    Yes it is worth it!

  465. Sarat C
    July 31, 2014 at 3:01 am

    $199 would be better.

  466. Ari T
    July 31, 2014 at 3:00 am

    Definitely seems worth it

  467. Bob Young
    July 31, 2014 at 2:56 am

    This is the perfect computer for those who only use them for being on-line. Any more, most of my computer time is spent that way as well, so it should work for me, too.

  468. KHiyama
    July 31, 2014 at 2:56 am

    If I had $250 and could use a Chromebook, I'd definitely plunk it down for this one. Sadly, I don't have $250 even though I could still use one. Nice specs and with a Chromebook you're not getting a full-featured laptop, so it's right in there.

  469. Dante
    July 31, 2014 at 2:55 am

    $250 is alright for this spec chromebook, while not impressive the price tag does give it some interest.

  470. Jonathan G
    July 31, 2014 at 2:54 am

    I have never used one before, but it looks like it's worth the price.

  471. Lovely Joy Merced
    July 31, 2014 at 2:54 am

    for $249 it's worth it :)

  472. Jaff
    July 31, 2014 at 2:51 am

    I think so. A lot more chromebooks costs more than that at the same performance as this one. That IS a great price.

  473. Ryan
    July 31, 2014 at 2:47 am

    I have always wanted a chromebook. just could never afford one.

  474. Michael T.
    July 31, 2014 at 2:43 am

    I think it's a pretty good deal for a secondary computer.

  475. Hanadia Roby
    July 31, 2014 at 2:41 am

    I think it's def worth the money. What's up with it not working with a WiFi printer?

  476. Herman S
    July 31, 2014 at 2:41 am

    I think it would fit under $200

  477. Charles R
    July 31, 2014 at 2:40 am

    Having had some experience with chromebooks, I'd say this is worth $249, even though it has a subpar webcam. The battery life is really what matters and this one scores well in that category.

  478. Keith K
    July 31, 2014 at 2:36 am

    Seems worth the cash to me. I'd pick one up if I needed a new light duty laptop.

  479. Mandip D
    July 31, 2014 at 2:35 am

    I think $199 would have been a better price tag!

  480. Maribel
    July 31, 2014 at 2:30 am

    I think its great that it has a long battery life which is important to me and it is aggordable too.

  481. Aleksandr
    July 31, 2014 at 2:29 am

    Yes, good value.

  482. Alexander G
    July 31, 2014 at 2:29 am

    I like ASUS!

  483. Matthew LeDrew

      yes I could use 1 of them I really need 1 really bad that I just got the moneybut it would be nice if I can win 1 thank you and god bless you

  484. Casey W
    July 31, 2014 at 2:25 am

    After reading the review, I'd say $249 is an acceptable price for the name ASUS on the Chromebook and used as a basic web-surfing/video watching tool... for anything else, I'd say no. However, I could use one of these when visiting family or traveling ... so Good Luck to those who enter!

  485. Stephen G.
    July 31, 2014 at 2:23 am

    While I'd prefer the price to be $25 to $50 lower, $250 does seem reasonable for this Chromebook. That figure positions the C200MA-DS01 well against its competitors, and I've had only good experience with ASUS products.

  486. Alastair Jones
    July 31, 2014 at 2:18 am

    Yup

  487. patty

  488. Michaela K
    July 31, 2014 at 2:09 am

    I think it would make the perfect chrome book for a high school student or even jr high school student. I have both and I know they'd love to get one of these!

  489. Candice Montgomery
    July 31, 2014 at 2:07 am

    It seems like good value for the price, based on this review.

  490. Rob D
    July 31, 2014 at 2:06 am

    A Chromebook at $249 would give a lot of today's internet-only users a good deal for laptop-sized access to their favorite sites and compatible apps. Google has been planning on bringing Android apps to Chromebook, so that would be an awesome feature, if this comes to pass. I have other Asus products (including an Android tablet, the MeMo 10"), and their stuff is pretty good. I agree with your recommendation in favor of this product.

  491. Grcoeeg
    July 31, 2014 at 2:05 am

    I have the Samsung 1st generation, and love it. My younger brother has the Acer 720C and he loves it. The Chromebook, any Chromebook is a good buy and does everything the average user wants to do, EXCEPT you need a cloud ready printer. Just a plain wifi printer won't work. Not that much of a deal, I just send the link of whatever I want to print to my other laptop and use it to print what needs printed. I hope to win this, as my wife wants something to replace her laptop, and this is just the thing for her.

  492. Green Building Design and Construction
    July 31, 2014 at 2:04 am

    $249 has been a good price since I first learned about the #ChromeBook earlier this year. I talked with a student whose school assigned the chromebooks and he said they worked flawlessly. I look forward to getting one so that all the Google stuff works easily.

  493. Robert Gosnel
    July 31, 2014 at 2:02 am

    Too expensive for what you get. You can get an Acer with a Haswell CPU for that price.

  494. Sandy Coulter
    July 31, 2014 at 2:00 am

    Definitely worth it!

  495. Diana Corlett
    July 31, 2014 at 1:53 am

    I would have to say, yes, definitely. Great review, btw.

  496. Shane R
    July 31, 2014 at 1:51 am

    Love ASUS products, love Chromebooks in general, is this one worth 250$, maybe. Personally, this would be amazing for college and in that case it is definitely worth 250$, but when it comes to other situations I am not so sure that it is worth it. Would be great to win this, good luck to all who enter. :)

  497. Ruven
    July 31, 2014 at 1:50 am

    If it were 50 dollars less.

  498. David Yang
    July 31, 2014 at 1:49 am

    I think it is worth the price.

  499. Cesar
    July 31, 2014 at 1:46 am

    Sounds like a good deal, but the proof only gets verified if you get one and are satisfied or not.

  500. Roberto Rother
    July 31, 2014 at 1:40 am

    Given the specifications and price, I think its a great overall Chromebook. I think its completely worth it. If I don't win this drawing, I'd strongly consider buying one.

  501. Jim Morgan
    July 31, 2014 at 1:39 am

    I'm anxious to try a Chrome Book because Chrome is my browser of choice on my desk top and laptop. $249 seems like a good price for this one.

  502. Angela SC

    Yea.seems to be a good deal.

  503. Jayne Osborne

  509. Don Ellis

    Asus have produced a very stylish portable notebook (chromebook) It seems to be affordable and functional for anyone on the move, in bed or even students studying.

    Thanks for the giveaway,
    Good luck everyone!

  514. Johnna

  517. Zero

    Very good price. Screen is a bit small, 13" is a good size.

  518. John Darrow
    July 31, 2014 at 1:07 am

    This sounds like a decent Chromebook, but I'd have to try it for a while to see what I think of it. I do generally like ASUS products. Worth $249? I'd have to use it for a while to decide.

  519. Vic L
    July 31, 2014 at 1:07 am

    Definitely worth it. I hope for more affordable deals with this one :)

  525. Francis S
    July 31, 2014 at 12:51 am

    Been throwing my money at Asus for years. Mainly in the laptop realm and prior into desktop mobos. Nice Chromebook, despite the weak res webcam and plastic all around, it looks like a solid little machine with a great battery.

  529. Jonathan S
    July 31, 2014 at 12:44 am

    Given that in the past I've paid $199 for a piece of junk netbook with an underpowered atom processor, $249 seems decent for a lightweight and quality built chromebook!

  530. Tony
    July 31, 2014 at 12:43 am

    Seems like a nice device. We've used Acer and Samsung models and generally like Chromebooks. I think, though, my next one will be at least 13.3" or more. The 11.6" models are a little small for me.

  531. Steven
    July 31, 2014 at 12:35 am

    The trackpad and keyboard sound less than desirable to me, however the estimated battery life (even if it's rather variable) almost makes up for it. Overall, I think the whole package makes that price point definitely reasonable.

  532. Jim W
    July 31, 2014 at 12:34 am

    It seems better than the rest. It's definitely better than my HP netbook.

  533. Nguyen H
    July 31, 2014 at 12:31 am

    It's pretty exceptional for the $249 price point!

    The Asus Chromebook C200MA-DS01 is one of the best Chromebook one could buy at $249. If I could afford it, I would buy it in a heart beat. But I can't afford it right now.But would love to try to win it.

    Never thought of buying one. May be worthwhile to look into it.

  543. jerry culala
    July 30, 2014 at 11:35 pm

    I think this Chromebook worth the price tag.

  544. Lane P.
    July 30, 2014 at 11:33 pm

    Not a bad price for what you're getting.

  545. mary josephine culala
    July 30, 2014 at 11:32 pm

    this Chromebook looks great. I think it is well worth price tag.

  546. Arielle S
    July 30, 2014 at 11:31 pm

    Definitely, the quality for the price is kinda surreal., though I agree that the mouse is not its best feature. My main interests are Youtube, writing, and e-mail, and the ASUS gets it all done.

  547. Rutaba Ashraf
    July 30, 2014 at 11:30 pm

    chromebook in this price with such specs is welcome fro engineering students like me but I will answer this question more well when makeuseof will give one chromebook to me and I am hopeful to get it.

  548. Angie
    July 30, 2014 at 11:27 pm

    Meh...I think I'd rather save the money and later apply it towards a more powerful laptop.

  549. ?Ubomír Š
    July 30, 2014 at 11:25 pm

    $249? Not bad. :-)

  550. Rawlins

    Good looking Chromebook. I have the C720 and really like it.

  551. Emily L
    July 30, 2014 at 11:11 pm

    I think this Chromebook looks great. I think it is well worth the small price tag.

  552. Luis Gonzalez
    July 30, 2014 at 11:02 pm

    Good bang for the buck, to work on the go

  553. Johan Chester Rayos
    July 30, 2014 at 10:51 pm

    Its specs are not as bad for its price. For minor usage, this is a good one.
    For its price, its worth it. If you can get it for free, thats a great thing :D

  554. Kent Penigar
    July 30, 2014 at 10:50 pm

    Yes

  555. Mark M
    July 30, 2014 at 10:47 pm

    If you're into the Google/Chrome ecosystem this is a very good but. I still think that most laptop users still see the Chromebook as gimmicky though...(see comments by ajck)

  556. Nick Gonzalez
    July 30, 2014 at 10:44 pm

    For 250 dollars? Yes, it is worth it

  557. Scott H
    July 30, 2014 at 10:41 pm

    I'm still undecided about chromebooks. I think not.

  558. Stephen
    July 30, 2014 at 10:37 pm

    If I wanted a chromebook, I would definitely consider this one!

  559. Todd
    July 30, 2014 at 10:36 pm

    GOOD Price, to use on the go.

  560. Alexandru S
    July 30, 2014 at 10:35 pm

    I'm still doubtful about all these Chromebooks. I feel they have a spec/price ratio higher than a normal laptop. I mean, with 300 Euros I've just bought an Asus U43F which first of all is covered in bamboo, has an I5, 8GB of RAM and a 600GB HDD, 14" screen.

  561. saurabh
    July 30, 2014 at 10:33 pm

    Yes $249 is perfect for this chromebook

  562. lanmanx
    July 30, 2014 at 10:32 pm

    Sounds awesome!

  563. Miguel Almeida
    July 30, 2014 at 10:29 pm

    I think it is awesome! Totally worth the money!

  564. Bev Elliott
    July 30, 2014 at 10:26 pm

    I have never used a Chromebook but have been hearing good things about them. I would love to win this one . Thanks for the chance.

  565. Tom
    July 30, 2014 at 10:26 pm

    At $249, this is a good deal...what I paid for an ASUS tablet, on sale, 2 years ago!

  566. ajck
    July 30, 2014 at 10:25 pm

    Can I install Windows 8 on this? ChromeOS is useless.

  567. Allison
    July 30, 2014 at 10:11 pm

    Maybe

  568. Carol O
    July 30, 2014 at 10:07 pm

    According to the information and specs in your review, it looks like a good deal.

  569. deepak
    July 30, 2014 at 10:03 pm

    yes, worth it at 249 dollars.

  570. John Forbes
    July 30, 2014 at 10:03 pm

    Think excellent for the price.

  571. Johnny
    July 30, 2014 at 9:56 pm

    Asus makes a great product. I purchased an Asus Nexus Tablet and about a year ago bought a Chromebook for a friend. Thanks Asus!

  572. Dave Wells
    July 30, 2014 at 9:56 pm

    Ok but probably a better idea to spend a little more for something more powerful.

  573. Ben
    July 30, 2014 at 9:52 pm

    It might be. I've been looking for a very cheap laptop to supplement my desktop.

  574. Mario
    July 30, 2014 at 9:50 pm

    The Asus Chromebook C200MA-DS01 is a good buy for $249.

  575. mona
    July 30, 2014 at 9:50 pm

    249. yeah from the specs.

  576. Susana
    July 30, 2014 at 9:48 pm

    From what I've seen in your review and others, yeah it's definitely worth buying and I would if I could.

  577. Andrew
    July 30, 2014 at 9:46 pm

    I'd say that this Chromebook is worth $249. Chromebooks can't do everything that a regular laptop can, but they're cheaper and generally lighter, and typically have long battery lives.

  578. Pedro C
    July 30, 2014 at 9:36 pm

    it is worth it but beeter if i win it because im broke

  579. Rita Sheppard
    July 30, 2014 at 9:34 pm

    I think it's absolutely a great deal for that price!

  580. jasray
    July 30, 2014 at 9:32 pm

    OMG--Do yourselves a favor and purchase a MacBook Air--great speed, super display, long and longer battery life, superb resell value, robust operating system, etc. -- 2GB of RAM and a 16GB SSD is going to be such a huge disappointment to most. And one could go on about the 15 reasons why one would never purchase a Chromebook, but . . .

  581. Dara Sheahan
    July 30, 2014 at 9:23 pm

    I don't know... That's why I'd like to win. I wouldn't buy a Chromebook because I don't have that extra money just lying around. I'd like to have one to see if they're worth it!

  582. Jenny Sagabay
    July 30, 2014 at 9:21 pm

    I think it would be worth it with all it can offer

  583. Joseph Ramirez (@kobunni)

    Absolutely, awesome for travel....

  584. Jane L Johnson

    Looks like a great deal to me!

  585. ed
    July 30, 2014 at 9:14 pm

    Pretty soon Windows laptops at $249 will be common. so I would have to say this is worth it at $200.

    That being said, this would be my choice of Chrome Book to buy.

    I believe it is fanless, so even better.

  586. Jonah Jeleniewski
    July 30, 2014 at 9:10 pm

    I would certainly say this chromebook is worth the money. It's kind of like the laptop equivalent of a Moto G, lots of bang for the buck. The right sacrifices were made to keep the cost cheap and still give a good user experience. Good stuff.

  587. James
    July 30, 2014 at 9:10 pm

    It sounds great!

  588. Vanessa Rose P
    July 30, 2014 at 9:07 pm

    Absolutely right! The Asus Chromebook C200MA-DS01 is worth paying for $249. <3

  589. Ben
    July 30, 2014 at 9:04 pm

    Why not? Also... I missed this... does it do the job? Does the track pad do the job?

  590. Ben
    July 30, 2014 at 9:03 pm

    Appears to be quite good for $249

  591. Brian D
    July 30, 2014 at 9:02 pm

    Absolutely! I want a Chromebook! Sooooo bad!

  592. Silvia D
    July 30, 2014 at 8:57 pm

    excellent price. I think it an awesome laptop!

  593. Bill M
    July 30, 2014 at 8:54 pm

    For what it offers I'd say it is

  594. Diana M
    July 30, 2014 at 8:53 pm

    Worth it! Totally

  595. Daniel Ooi
    July 30, 2014 at 8:52 pm

    The Asus Chromebook C200MA-DS01 is worth paying for $249.

  596. Mike
    July 30, 2014 at 8:52 pm

    Is the Chromebook worth the money? I think it all depends on what you are planning on using it for. It would be a waste for doing powerful things, but overall seems like a great value. I would be able to better answer this question if I win the giveaway!!!

  597. Gini
    July 30, 2014 at 8:51 pm

    I currently use a Chromebook for both personal and academic use. I love it!

  598. Kim M
    July 30, 2014 at 8:51 pm

    I think the ASUS Chromebook C200MA-DS01 is definitely worth it. This is something I would like to own.

  599. andy
    July 30, 2014 at 8:48 pm

    lot of bang for the buck!

  600. Anita

    This ASUS souds like my kid of chromebook would love to have it

  601. Michael Kristensen
    July 30, 2014 at 8:45 pm

    It would be worth it absolutely, true portability with a keyboard attached :-)

  602. Nick
    July 30, 2014 at 8:43 pm

    yes

  603. Andras K.
    July 30, 2014 at 8:41 pm

    yeah i think so

  604. Dan D
    July 30, 2014 at 8:41 pm

    I'm still not living in a situation where I'm able to have constant online connectivity everywhere I go so something like a Chromebook doesn't appeal to me, but maybe in another 5 or so years. Even at that price, it still will lack a lot of features and functions I need to have.

  605. Zeus A
    July 30, 2014 at 8:37 pm

    Yes It's Worth The Price

  606. MSP
    July 30, 2014 at 8:37 pm

    (QUOTE) The Acer C720 is cheaper, but it has a worse processor, only 802.11n WiFi, and a shorter 8.5-hour battery life. Another competitor is the Toshiba CB35-A3120, which costs a bit more at $279, has a shorter 9-hour battery life, but it does have a better processor and a 13.3-inch display. (UNQUOTE)

    Err no! The Acer C720 has a faster processor than the ASUS C200 - exactly the same one as in the Toshiba in fact. The Acer C720 processor is an iCore Haswell Celeron, whereas the ASUS C200 has the slower but more energy efficient Atom Bay Trail Celeron. The processor in the ASUS C200 is almost exactly midway in benchmark performance between the two year old ARM processor in the Samsung Series 3 Chromebook model, and the Acer C720.

    Having said that they are all pretty snappy and you probably wouldn't notice the any difference unless you put them side by side to compare small differences in response or unless you run benchmarks.

  607. Caren N
    July 30, 2014 at 8:37 pm

    sounds like a great deal

  608. Sahil Tiwari
    July 30, 2014 at 8:35 pm

    I think for used $250 the ASUS Chromebook C200MA-DS01 offers a lot of nice features along with an excellent battery life.

  609. jumaz
    July 30, 2014 at 8:35 pm

    Worth it!!! Probably something I will likely buy in the future, but I'd prefer to win it, of course!

  610. Anupam
    July 30, 2014 at 8:34 pm

    Considering the price...I think it is a good notebook.Totally value for our hard earned money.

  611. Db
    July 30, 2014 at 8:33 pm

    After watching Mr. Stiebens video it is def something worth considering for my in-law that are doing just email, internet, video chats and simple word processing & excel via google apps. The goodboy did a nice job in his video of covering the operating feel of the chromebook which is one thing I am always curious about...especially the "travel" of the keys when pressing. I had a laptop that had terrible keyboard travel and promptly got rid of it.

    A definate contender for easy access, fast, responsive computing needs. To Mr. Stieben, thank you for the write up and the video. Sharing your knowledge and insight is sincerely appreciated.

  612. Tony G
    July 30, 2014 at 8:31 pm

    The Asus Chromebook C200MA-DS01 is one of the best Chromebook one could buy at $249.

  613. Susan Amsbaugh
    July 30, 2014 at 8:30 pm

    It's totally worth $249. I think I'd actually get more use out of a Chromebook than my tablet.

  614. matthew Alaniz
    July 30, 2014 at 8:30 pm

    I like the look and the awesome price

  615. Dragos N

  616. Jo-anne P

    A total and resounding yes I think it is a great price

  617. Kv H

    I think it is a reasonable price for the product.

  618. Amy T.
    July 30, 2014 at 8:29 pm

    Sounds really good for on the go. I like the reviewer's comments about the feel of the keystrokes.

  619. Stephen Potter
    July 30, 2014 at 8:28 pm

    I definitely think this machine is worth the price, provided you know what you're getting yourself into with a Chromebook

  620. herb
    July 30, 2014 at 8:26 pm

    Seems fairly priced. Asus makes good products.

  621. Chad Ford

  623. Laurel N
    July 30, 2014 at 8:25 pm

    I'm not sure ANY chromebook is worth the $, but if I win one, you all might just change my mind. :)

  624. Galen Davis
    July 30, 2014 at 8:25 pm

    Yes, it's worth $249.

  625. Va D
    July 30, 2014 at 8:24 pm

    I guess it's okay if you have specific needs but seems lacking if your need a more capable notebook.

  626. Marko G.
    July 30, 2014 at 8:22 pm

    its a good deal

  627. Rajat

  631. Todd G

    While a little apprehensive about using a Chromebook, for 250 Its worth a shot. I

  632. Sriram Srinivasan
    July 30, 2014 at 8:06 pm

    Yes, Asus chromebook C200MA is worth $249 and it is quite a decent buy with these specifications. I would go for this product without hesitation!!!

  633. Sean M
    July 30, 2014 at 8:04 pm

    $249 seems to be a bargain for this

  634. troy

    Seems like a good buy. Prefer linux laptop myself.

  635. Deborah Stinson
    July 30, 2014 at 8:01 pm

    I think it's definitely worth the price and might just have to look into purchasing one.

  636. Haroon Khan
    July 30, 2014 at 7:58 pm

    I think so YES!

  637. Dani B
    July 30, 2014 at 7:54 pm

    I think its price is cool for its specifications.

  638. Diane Williams
    July 30, 2014 at 7:52 pm

    It is absolutely worth the price. I use so many Google services that is would be convenient. In addition to the price, I also like the size!

  639. P.f. B

    It sounds like a great deal for $249.

  643. Diana Ward
    July 30, 2014 at 7:33 pm

    It appears from your review that the Asus chromebook C200MA-DS01 is worth the money for me. A long lasting battery, good resolution, decent sound and keyboard are exactly what I need for still getting some work done while watching my grandboys play.

  644. ken
    July 30, 2014 at 7:31 pm

    good deal

  645. Charles T
    July 30, 2014 at 7:25 pm

    At that price point this ASUS Chromebook worth it.

    It would be nice to try one out.

  646. Bart Aronoff

    Yes, worth it. and worth winning

  647. nitin hassija

    I would say that yes it is worth the price.

  648. P.f. B
    July 30, 2014 at 7:18 pm

    This seems like it's worth $249. I only hesitate because of the trackpad. But *build quality (not built quality) seems good.

  649. Christopher
    July 30, 2014 at 7:17 pm

    Sounds like a deal but never have used a chromebook.

  650. Eugenie

  651. Mikhail R

  652. Ajith Sen

    From the review it is obvious it is worth the price.

  653. Prateek
    July 30, 2014 at 7:06 pm

    It is worth the cost.. Its very cheap and it has good features like Wireless AC for the price :)

  654. Ptrix
    July 30, 2014 at 7:04 pm

    Probably worth more, but it's a great price for a decent product

  655. Rob Bradley
    July 30, 2014 at 6:58 pm

    I definitely think it's worth $249. I have an ASUS Windows Tablet, and only love the ASUS part of it. I'd love to have an ASUS Chromebook.

  661. Al C

    Is a Chromebook just a tablet with keyboard? I'm unsure of its advantages, or is it just a bigger screen?

  662. Harshith M
    July 30, 2014 at 6:23 pm

    It is worth the cost.. Its very cheap and it has good features like Wireless AC for the price :)

  667. Sherron Lucile Ostrander

  669. Jessica L

    It seems to be worth $249.

  674. shawn
    July 30, 2014 at 5:30 pm

    I think it is worth the current price; however, I see a larger market for these and a price drop. Much less than a laptop, but more options than a tablet.

  675. Aleksandr C
    July 30, 2014 at 5:29 pm

    yes it’s worth the money!

  676. Steve Montgomery

    Love it cannot wait to win one

  678. Ben L
    July 30, 2014 at 5:22 pm

    It's definitely great in its own right, just (more or less) not my thing. I'm more of a Windows fan, but purely as a Chromebook, it, overall, far excels every other one out there. I'd love to win it.

  679. Srinivas G

    Definitely yes. But I would've preferred some more RAM.

    The Asus Chromebook C200ma is light (2.5 lbs), inexpensive, and small, making it ideal to carry.

  685. Colleen

    I think the chromebook is a decent price, and has some great features!

    ASUS Chromebook C200 MA @ $249 is Definitely at a reliable rate. Best Product at Best Price.

  689. Todd H
    July 30, 2014 at 5:03 pm

    As hardware is getting better, I would say this is well worth it. Aside from the fact that I am an Asus "Fanboy" :)

    Probably. Looks like a nice machine.

  691. Eric McMurray

    The Asus C200MA-DS01 is a great Chromebook for the money. It is great to carry with you when you are away from home and want to stay connected. You can also do work online with Google Documents if you need to. It is lightweight and is easy to carry with you. I give it 5 stars.

  692. Pamela
    July 30, 2014 at 4:55 pm

    It's absolutely worth $249! It's not a laptop replacement, but certainly a worthy and sturdy backup. It sounds like a top of the line chromebook, which is what it's supposed to be. I'd love it for traveling, whether to the other room or on the road. Battery life sounds amazing, and all else seems to be above average. Definitely worth it.

  693. Bogdan

  694. Andrew Hall

  695. Minta

    Yes, I think it's worth the money!

  696. Terry
    July 30, 2014 at 4:45 pm

    I have looked at the Chromebooks a little over the past year as a replacement when my present laptop dies. I think it is a viable option and at that price, very attractive.

  697. ziv
    July 30, 2014 at 4:40 pm

    Definitely worth the money, i already ordered the 4gb c300 and cant wait to get it!

  698. Dany B
    July 30, 2014 at 4:39 pm

    Its worth the money, and ASUS has a good reputation in laptop, so this Chromebook is probably good quality too.

  699. Debbie Bashford
    July 30, 2014 at 4:38 pm

    I think it's a very reasonable price

  700. Jarvis J

  701. Margot S.

    The ASUS Chromebook is definitely worth the money!

  702. DanQ
    July 30, 2014 at 4:33 pm

    I think it is a very acceptable $249 system. I've considered getting a Chromebook to replace you crappy Acer laptop and think this is a decent contender.

  703. Adam
    July 30, 2014 at 4:28 pm

    I do wish that it had 4GB RAM; I bought an HP 14 and love it, esp. with the Linux installation, but that RAM really helps. Want this processor though!

  704. Pg G
    July 30, 2014 at 4:25 pm

    I definitely think it's worth the money

  705. Dave N
    July 30, 2014 at 4:20 pm

    I think it seems technically inferior to the cheap Toshiba laptop I bought for $250 a month ago, except the size and weight make the Chromebook better if portability is a high priority.

  706. Haci C
    July 30, 2014 at 4:17 pm

    Looks good for surfing the web and watching movies.

  707. annie fajardo

    I'd put it on my short list. I wish there was a mechanical switch to disable the cam and microphone.

  709. Jim Smith

    Looks like an excellent laptop for casual use.

  710. Cheridene B

    yes its great for that price

  711. Srivatsan V
    July 30, 2014 at 4:00 pm

    That's a pretty good price. That's how much I paid for my 2012 Nexus 7, and that's served me well. I already use Drive heavily for documents and collaborative editing, so I don't see why this isn't a great deal.

  712. c s
    July 30, 2014 at 3:58 pm

    I like the idea of the chromebook, but there are comparably priced Windows machines that give you a lot more choices and capabilities.

  713. Bart B
    July 30, 2014 at 3:58 pm

    I really like the Chromebooks, very low maintenance. My wife is on her 2nd generation Chromebook. I would like to give her this one because of the increased performance.

  714. Lori Bahn
    July 30, 2014 at 3:55 pm

    I think Chrome is definitely worth the price

  715. Navjot Singh
    July 30, 2014 at 3:55 pm

    Definitely worth the price. Looks good enough to do get things done while on the move without compromising on the power.

  716. Gord
    July 30, 2014 at 3:53 pm

    Yes I think it is worth the price.

  717. Oanh Ho
    July 30, 2014 at 3:48 pm

    Yes I think the Chromebook is worth that price tag.

  718. Jim DeMian
    July 30, 2014 at 3:46 pm

    Sure, the price sounds suitable. There is something nice about being able to simply open it and get on the net - with no complications. Any deficits can easily fixed by plug-in speakers or a small carry-around mouse. Thus the build quality becomes very important, since you'll be carrying this around a lot and actually using it. Nice choice.

  719. Stefano B
    July 30, 2014 at 3:45 pm

    I thunk is a solid deal because of price, performance and quality.

  720. Steen
    July 30, 2014 at 3:43 pm

    It's hard to say if it's worth the money over the Acer C720, but looking only at performance I guess it is worth it.

  721. Ed Graham
    July 30, 2014 at 3:43 pm

    Have to get one for my wife. Looks like a great (stable) laptop.

  722. MarkTGT
    July 30, 2014 at 3:37 pm

    Seems to be. I have to own one for a while to really know if it is a good deal or a slug.

  723. keny
    July 30, 2014 at 3:37 pm

    Sounds great on paper ( on-line review) but haven't got my fingers on one, yet...

  724. Adam B
    July 30, 2014 at 3:35 pm

    I still have my doubts about an internet-only device, but I think that as Google improves the OS and opens it up to Android apps and offline files, $250 would be a solid investment.

  725. Geovanna
    July 30, 2014 at 3:33 pm

    I've never used a Chromebook, so I don't know what the advantages/disadvantages are. I just bought a laptop for more than twice the money, so yes, the price is very good. Is it worth it? Won't know until I actually use one.

  726. Jason Peterson
    July 30, 2014 at 3:32 pm

    I'm still not entirely sure that Google OS would fit my needs, but if it does then this is the notebook I would get!

    probably

  729. B. Lerner
    July 30, 2014 at 3:27 pm

    Definitely worth the money - laptops are usually in the $400 range, so this is wonderful.

  730. Mickey W
    July 30, 2014 at 3:27 pm

    For someone who just wants an internet capable computer, this is everything they would need.

  731. Andrei A
    July 30, 2014 at 3:18 pm

    the price is quite suitable, I think

  732. LNeslon
    July 30, 2014 at 3:15 pm

    For what I use a laptop for, this would be perfect. I have an older laptop that I just browse the internet on while watching TV or what have you. All my heavy lifting is done on a PC in the office. This light, simple browser would be perfect for what I use a laptop for.

  733. Lawrence Anderson
    July 30, 2014 at 3:11 pm

    Inexpensive computing for the cloud. My son's headed to college and wants a Chromebook. Wifi everywhere at the college will make it easy to use.

  734. Betty B
    July 30, 2014 at 3:09 pm

    It seems to be about the going price, but prices are high on everything now.

  735. Helana
    July 30, 2014 at 3:01 pm

    I've heard really good things about ASUS tablets, and would love to have one.

  736. Jeanne T
    July 30, 2014 at 3:00 pm

    This looks like a good deal for $249. I don't like trackpads and always use a mouse, so it's biggest negative wouldn't bother me.

  737. Cre8tive
    July 30, 2014 at 3:00 pm

    I would really like to try a Chromebook as a home PC replacement.

  738. Jason N
    July 30, 2014 at 2:58 pm

    Definitely worth the money.

  739. Don
    July 30, 2014 at 2:56 pm

    Looks like a pretty solid "laptop" and priced about right

  740. Rachel K
    July 30, 2014 at 2:55 pm

    I think it's great value for someone that has to watch their budget. ASUS are good machines and this definitely represents a good deal!

  741. Sean C
    July 30, 2014 at 2:55 pm

    I love my current Chromebook (a Samsung 550), but I'd happily pay $249 for a newer model...

  742. Davor Molnar

    It looks like a decent machine for simple tasks and everyday use.

    Once Chrome OS is updated to tun Android apps, it will be well worth it.

  750. Andy

    This appears much better than the C720 for virtually the same price! Definitely a must have...

    I just replaced a cracked screen for a local senior, they bought it for $199.00. That is the better price. They got it March 14. It was a cute little thing, but limiting to those of us who need more than a 'toy'. But it was fun 'playing' with it while I had it, and was able to help them with tips and tricks to have more fun with it. So its great to play with, surf, a few games, check email on the go. $249 is a bit much though. $199.00, I may buy one just for kicks!

  752. Miguel
    July 30, 2014 at 2:16 pm

  753. Scott T

    This is a great product for the price. Google is well on their way to becoming the Umbrella Corporation. Wait, what?

  754. Theo E
    July 30, 2014 at 2:14 pm

    For the price, I think it is a great deal. A slightly older Samsung Chromebook is available online right now for about 20% less, but it is last year's model.

  755. suzanne wilson
    July 30, 2014 at 2:10 pm

    Totally worth that price.. it's a great machine for everyday use!

  756. Paul V

    Yes, it is worth the price.

  757. Denis K

    Pretty fair price as for me.

  758. Lynne T

    Yes, it sounds like it's definitely worth that price.

  759. Justin
    July 30, 2014 at 1:48 pm

    The Asus Chromebook is about the same cost of a table, but more versatile. Guaranteed updates, not viruses and instant on functionality. I think Its well worth the price

  760. w
    July 30, 2014 at 1:43 pm

    I think that's a good price for a basic laptop. It hooks up to my TV and lets me watch Amazon Prime on the big screen.

  761. Maarten D
    July 30, 2014 at 1:38 pm

    I don't think this is the best Chromebook there is.

  762. Brian

    I already had this model and it seemed much more laggy than the other 7 models I have had.

  763. Jared
