Over the last couple of months we have seen plenty budget friendly compact models which all have quite similar specifications hit the market, so how do you choose which one is right for you? Today we are looking at the ASUS E200HA-FD0041TS which follows the same trend of an 11.6 inch display and lower end hardware which adds up to a laptop that is very affordable. Below we will review this model a bit closer and try to pinpoint some of the pros and cons and hopefully make your decision a little bit easier.
Processor: Intel Quad Core Atom x5-Z8350
Memory: 2 GB of RAM

Money is always going to be a factor when searching for a new laptop, how can it not be? Nobody likes to spend more then they need to and an affordable laptop is always going to draw plenty of attention. The ASUS E200HA-FD0041TS does a great job of drawing attention for exactly this reason, it is very budget friendly and a fraction of the cost of some higher end models that are available.
Another thing that Asus does well with this model is provide consumers with a device that is highly mobile and can very easily be used while on the go. It accomplishes this in a couple of ways, the first being the light and slim design. The laptop tips the scales at a very light 980 grams which is half the weight of a typical full sized laptop. Along with being light it is also capable of giving you a full day of use without needing to be charged up due to its battery that has a run time of up to 14 hours on a single charge.
Even though the screen is smaller at just 11.6 inches the HD display is still capable of providing very crisp picture quality so you can view that latest much watch video in great detail.
The lower end hardware that has been used in the ASUS E200HA-FD0041TS to keep prices so low is going to be a big limitation for some. The Atom processor is only backed by 2 GB of memory meaning if you start working on tasks that require plenty of system resources you will start to get poor performance. This laptop model is better suited to basic day to day tasks and online applications more so then running large resource intensive applications.
The ASUS E200HA-FD0041TS has its purpose and does a great job of fulfilling this. It isn’t meant to be a power users laptop but if you are an average user looking for something that is affordable and can easily keep up with you on the go then it may be a perfect fit.
