Like most Chromebooks the ASUS C201PA-FD0015 is highly portable and well suited to those who are on the go. The total weight of just 898 grams is extremely light making it very easy to carry around for long periods no matter if you are just going back and forth to classes or taking a long trip and spending plenty of time walking through airports. The light weight isn’t the only thing it has going for it that make it a mobile users dream as it also comes with some impressive battery life. With up to 13 hours on a single charge it is quite easy to get a full day out of it without needing to charge up which when travelling is a huge benefit.
It has become expected to see at least one available HDMI port on any new laptop you may be considering to purchase but this model from Asus has went a step further and includes 2 HDMI ports along with 2 USB ports making it very easy to find room for all your external devices even on a compact laptop such as this one.
If you have spend any time recently browsing new laptops you are probably well aware Chromebooks lack much for storage capacity as most come with a small 32 GB drive. The ASUS C201PA-FD0015 hasn’t even been this generous with storage space as instead they have trimmed this down even more and only provided 16 GB of capacity. It is very obvious based on this that storing any amount of files on your laptop is going to quickly fill up the available space leaving you with no choice but to use online storage or an external hard drive.
The ASUS C201PA-FD0015 is a perfect fit for those on the go often who don’t need anything with big hardware specs and prefers something low cost and better suited to basic everyday tasks.
