Imagine my surprise when I was given the chance to do a review on a computer, how happy was I . Made me feel great that someone feels that im a good enough blogger to get this chance.

The Asus Chromebook C200 has a few advantages compared to other 11-inch models: A battery that lasted over eight hours and a pending update for Wi-Fi. In most other ways it s as good as one of those bigger ones.

ASUS has designed an extremely portable Chromebook. It easily fits in the palm of the hand and is very light. Asus is the first company to offer a Chromebook powered by an Intel Celeron Bay Trail processor. It uses less power than the Haswell chips in some Chromebooks, but helps the Asus C200 achieve its all-day battery life while offering stronger performance than some older Chromebooks with slower chips.

The best part about this to me is that it's so lightweight and can fit in a suit case if you're traveling, so you will never miss an important date again. So small you can use it anyplace

They have really helped out with things, check out what they sis for google browsing, I personally love how everything just loads without any issues.

Google+ Browsing. We also used Chrome’s built-in FPS counter to measure frame rate and smoothness when scrolling through a site with dynamically generated content like a Google+ page. The counter hovered between 50 and 60 frames per second as content was loading with little to no stuttering when scrolling down the page. Asus loaned me a C200 Chromebook for the purposes of this review. The company also offers a 13 inch model called the C300 Chromebook with nearly identical specs and an identical processor.

The Asus C200 Chromebook is powered by an Intel Celeron N2830 dual-core Bay Trail processor and features 802.11ac WiFi, Bluetooth 4.0, one USB 3.0 port and a USB 2.0 port, HDMI and audio jacks, and an SD card slot.

The notebook measures 12″ x 7.9″ x 0.8″ and weighs 2.5 pounds. The larger Asus C300 Chromebook has the same specs, but sports a 13.3 inch, 1366 x 768 pixel display, measures 13″ x 9.1″ x 0.9″ and weighs 3.1 pounds.

Not surprisingly for a $249 laptop, the Asus C200 Chromebok has a plastic case, but it feels pretty sturdy, there’s not too much flex in the keyboard, and bottom is painted a metallic silver/gray color while the lid is black. The lid is a bit of a fingerprint magnet, but it’s not hard to wipe clean.

Like most Chromebooks, the Asus C200 has a special keyboard with dedicated keys for functions such as Search, Back, Forward, as well as more common functions such as volume and brightness. You can also go into the notebook’s settings and choose to use the Search key as Caps Lock if you find you really miss having a Caps Lock key.

Chrome OS has come a long way in recent years. It’s no longer useless when you’re without an internet connection, since there are a growing number of web apps that let you save data to local storage so you can play games or edit documents even when you’re offline. And there’s an ever-growing number of Chrome Web apps that you can use for productivity, social interaction, gaming, business, and more.
