Top customer reviews

The result is that many modern computers, even ones with relatively fast quad core processors, can be lethargic. For most of the ways that the average person uses their computer, this should not be. Most processors, memory and hard drives are plenty fast enough, but the huge operating systems get in the way. I learned today that Windows 10 has 40 million lines of computer code and Mac OS X has about 85 million lines. It's no wonder the average user experiences frustrations with these systems.
This hit me one morning as I was trying to do something on one of my W10 notebooks. There were several programs open and, while what I was wanting to do was not particularly demanding, the program was slow in loading and executing the task. You never know why programs become slow, but it could have been a virus scan, security update or just poor memory management from Windows which requires a reboot to correct.
At that point I thought there had to be a capable, but simpler alternative, and I wondered if a Chromebook could be it. That set in motion a couple of weeks of reading user experiences and watching unboxing and review videos. After about a week of research I was ready to spend some money and give Chromebooks a try. Then the question became which one to buy?
I looked closely at every major Chromebook on the market in the 13 - 15.6 inch size. Toshiba had a 13.3" model that was widely praised, but there were a surprising number of stories of quick screen failures and customers being told by Toshiba that some alleged misuse voided their warranties.This meant that some who had owned the Toshiba Chromebook for 3 months or less had unusable computers from a company that looked to be avoiding responsibility for faulty screens. So, no Toshiba.
I then considered an HP 15 even though it was bigger and heavier than I wanted. The dealbreaker was when I realized that the HP's keyboard was actually a little smaller than the ones on 13.3 models due to large, top facing speakers on either side of the keyboard, I was a little concerned about going to a 13.3" computer after years of using notebooks with 15.6" screens, but I liked the idea of something light and travel-friendly. When I discovered that the HP had a little smaller keyboard than the 13" models, I scratched them off my list.
Eventually I settled on the Asus. It had solid, but unspectacular reviews and reports of excellent customer service. I spent a few extra bucks for the 4 GB model because the RAM on these systems is not upgradable, and I did not want to have buyers remorse if I found out that the 2 GB model was straining to keep up with the way I use my computers.
At home I have used this computer almost exclusively for 2 weeks. Only once did I start one of my Windows 10 machines and after seeing the Chromebook boot up almost instantaneously, the Windows startup was painfully slow, inefficient and frustrating. For every major way I use my computers--preparing lessons for my classes, managing websites and working with social media--the Chromebook is superior.
At school I have a Windows 7 desktop and notebook that I use extensively throughout the day. So many times I've thought about how much easier and more enjoyable the Chromebook operating system is to use.
It's not a perfect platform. Simple photo editing is easy to do on the Chromebook, but it does not have anywhere near the options available on the usual photo editing packages. In 2 weeks I had one occasion where I wanted to do a more complex edit and I thought about opening the Windows machine to accomplish it. I decided that the cost > benefit (this is what you get when an economics teacher writes reviews) so I didn't bother with it.
For documents, my school provides us with full access to Office 365 and the online versions of Word and Excel are more than sufficient for my needs. The menus are simpler and for most users that is a plus. (I really hate the Office Ribbon interface.)
One day this week I was using more than a dozen tabs in Chrome plus I had probably 20 PDF documents open. I had been viewing a series of PDF documents and I had not realized that I did not close each one after viewing them. It was the kind of mistake that would have caused a long, painful freeze-up of any of my Windows computers, but the Chromebook showed only the slightest hesitation in moving from screen to screen. Once I closed some of the PDFs the system went back to Warp speed.
My concern about moving from a 15.6 inch screen to the Asus 13.3 was unfounded. The Asus screen is bright and comfortable to read.
In short, I consider the Asus Chromebook to be among the best of my many, many computer/technology buys of the last 30 years. In my very busy life I very rarely take time to write product reviews, but I love this computer and I wanted to share this 30+ year computer users experience.
If you are on the fence about jumping to Chromebook I'd recommend taking the leap.This Chromebook is free of the usual Windows frustrations and delays.
I'm so happy with this computer and the nimble OS that I'm thinking of buying another for school use.
The machine is very light for a 13 inch computer, the battery life is great, and with 4 gb it is speedy enough for all of tasks I plan to put it through. The Google Drive storage is great for backing up all of my videos of the kids, and with a 64 GB SDXC card installed ($19) I can keep a good deal of content saved on the machine too.
This is my first experience with Chrome OS and I have previously been running Mac OS and WIndows 10 at home and at work. Chrome OS is fairly intuitive and you can quickly learn what you need to know with a few quick online Youtube tutorials. The Google App store works well and with the 64 GB card installed there is plenty of space to save apps and games. I am an Amazon Prime member and this computer plays nicely with Amazon apps, including the unlimited Amazon photo storage.
The only cons are as follows: Finger prints out the whazzoo, the screen is really dull and lifeless, and the plastic doesn't feel too sturdy. But again this was $179, so I wasn't expecting much more.
If I had to buy it again I would, but I would also seriously consider the Asus Chromebook Flip 10.1. The build quality seems much better, the battery life seems comparable, and the screen is several notches above. If they were the same price (4 gb version of each) it would be a no brainer and I'd go with the Flip. For an extra $30 I'd still go with the Flip. When I bought the C300 the price difference was $60 and that is 1/3rd of the costs, so for my $$$ and use this was the right call.
I'm a microsoft windows girl, born and raised, but I'm familiar with Apple products and this is a wonderfully refreshing experience.
First, I noticed reviews pointing out the lack of a caps lock, so I made peace with that before this arrived for my birthday. Turns out you can go into the settings and change the search button into caps lock and other functions. I may not have looked hard enough through the reviews to see if anyone else mentioned that, but I just want to say that.
It does bother me that I can't figure out "page up/down" and certain other functions. But that's just a google away when I get fed up enough, lol. Otherwise the keyboard is great and comfy.
Second, the combination of basic 15GB from google drive and the 16GB of the computer makes for a decent amount of space. But adding a 32GB sd card really really helped, so that's a pretty good investment.
It's so fast! Maybe it's just because I've been using a desktop I've had since 2008? But I love how fast things load.
Third, I chose a chromebook because I'm kinda tired of dealing with the windows OS (I didn't like Win8 and my husband has 10 on his laptop but I'm not sure how I feel about it yet) and I really dislike Apple. I was hoping that there'd be less unnecessary programs pre-installed and I was so right. Plus any that I didn't want after the fact were easily removed.
I wish there were more options in customizing the theme of my background and computer colors, but it's such a minor thing.
And I wish stuff were able to open on their own without having to add to my browser tabs, like google play and stuff. But it's also somewhat minor.
EDIT: I figured out that by bookmarking the page and using the browser tools to "add to shelf" I can the set it to "open in new window" and viola! Its own window! No more painfully cluttered tabs in my browser lol.
The 4gb ram makes it easy to handle all this stuff running while I multitask. And it charges so quick! Plus, once I turn down the brightness from "Jesus is returning" levels, it lasts even longer. I can work all day from 10am to 10pm and still have 40% battery left.
Fourth, for my fellow artists who stumbled upon an affordable, powerful little laptop. It has trouble with graphic tablets!
You have to run ubuntu Linux to get them to work, and wacom bamboo are the only ones I've heard cooperate. Make sure you research chromebook compatibility with different tablets. Although installing the art programs are an entirely different issue. I use Paint tool Sai, which is strictly windows apparently. Haven't heard much about Adobe or Autodesk products, but Gimp may work with Linux.
Although if you just want to do photo touchups, the Pixlr app is great. I used it on my phone first and made sure to find it for my laptop in the web store.
I am having trouble getting my logitech wireless mouse to work, but I have a simple plug and play wire mouse that cooperates so that's good.
All in all, for my first laptop I think this is really amazing and affordable birthday gift and I hope it lasts me a long time.
Hope my review was helpful and made sense!
Additional notes 9/12/17: get a sleeve for it. Try not to press against the bottom and top (like where my stickers are located). I sometimes lose my bottom row on the keyboard from the pressure of picking it up and my screen tends to flicker if I got rough with it. I get the row back by I guess gently pressing against the bottom while it's open? Its hard to explain. Just a heads up.
