A No-Brainer Purchase
I had an ASUS Chromebook for two years prior to this purchase, and it was worth every dollar. As a college student in a nursing program, 90% of my time studying and in class is spent typing notes or reading electronic textbooks. This Chromebook is excellent for my educational needs and beyond. The battery power lasts as expected and, just as my previous Chromebook, the charging time is incredibly quick to reach full battery. The Chromebook really feels heavy-duty, while looking stylish. I have already received numerous compliments on the appearance of my device. It is a perfect size, fitting into bags without any issues, and is not too heavy to carry around. The keyboard is very comfortable to type on, and the screen is just fine for the price. The other features, such as the spill-proof keys, add to the appeal of the product. Additionally, each Chromebook purchase I've made has included 100 GB of Google Drive storage for two years. Overall, I really couldn't be happier. As long as Chromebooks exist and continue to be designed so well, I will be a loyal Chromebook customer. I can't imagine putting my money toward anything else.

Battery Life and Rugged
By T. Hoch
I've been a chromebook fan for years. Because we travel a lot I wanted a more ruggedized model. I'm more than happy with this device. And the battery has been lasting for a full 10 hours. Very impressive.

A Great Portable Computer for the Price
By Jonathan Donihue
Well, I suppose I'm not super computer savvy but I spend a lot of time on computers and I know what I like. My wife and I own a Dell desk top computer which we share between the two of us. I'll be going back to school in the spring and we thought it might be nice to have an extra computer around the house so we could both work on projects, or watch videos, or whatever at the same time. Unfortunately, we don't have a lot of money to spend so I really did my research before purchasing.
I spent less than $200 for this little Chromebook and I think I really got my money's worth. With the exception of the storage capacity (which can be easily upgraded with an SD Card), it seems to be on a par with MacBook Air but for less than a third the cost. It's fast, easy to use, light weight, and durable. The last two qualities are especially important to me because I'm a cyclist and a strap hanger. If you travel primarily by automobile, you can't fully grok how important it is for someone who travels primarily by bicycle and/or bus to pack light and have durable, water resistant gear. It isn't mentioned in the product description, but I was pleasantly surprised that this Chromebook came with a 12 month accident protection warranty. To me that says a lot about Asus' confidence in the durability of their product.
Admittedly, I am a big time Google user. I've had a gmail account for years and I use all the wonderful products - Drive (docs, sheets, slides, and drawings), Voice (both phone and sms), Hangouts, Keep, Calendar, etc - that google has. If you're like me in this you'll be very happy to see that this Chromebook is a natural extension of your blissful Google experience.
One thing I would strongly recommend to anyone who decides to purchase this product is that you explore the help (?) section soon after you start it up for the first time. This is a Chrome OS so its slightly different than a Mac or Windows OS and will take a little getting used to. It's very intuitive and user friendly but you'll save yourself a lot of frustration if you take an hour to learn how to use it.
All in all, I think this is an extraordinary product and I would highly recommend it to anyone who is looking for an inexpensive, very portable computer for school or work. In fact, we liked it so much, we bought a second one for my wife. :-)
