It's pretty good

It's a pretty fast computer and it works well.

  • from Kanata, ON

At this price and performance it cannot be beaten

I like the robust power supply adapter TIP. The TIP is important as I found out when my Lenovo N21 tip broke; the price of it is insane! The ASUS is fast lightning easy to use and full of Apps out there for it.

  • from Scarborough, ON

great product

It's great for me because of the size and battery life. very light, fast, portable. great for work or university/college.

  • from Midland, ON

Great chromebook

I love this chrome book it can hold a charge for up to 20 hours and it is very easy to use I set it up within a few minutes Shipping was really slow though I paid extra for one day shipping on a Thursday so it would get to me by Friday and it didn't show up until Monday afternoon

  • from London, ON

To be continued...

I have not received it yet but I am eager! I love writing and typing and such.

  • from Sunnyside, NL

Can't beat the price

I have a nice laptop but I wanted something that was lighter in weight and was more portable. I was pleasantly surprised by how light it is and how functional it is. I use Google based apps a lot and this machine is perfect for that. Sound and video is pretty good but not perfect. It is fine for what I need it for. Battery life is very good. I have been getting at least 10 hours on a charge. If you need a laptop for Web based activities and not have to pay a whole lot then this is the machine for you. If you want it for gaming and more complex activities then you should find something else.

Asus cromebook

Good item

  • from Montréal, QC

simple machine

Nice and light. The best way to learn how to deal with the cloud.

  • from Chilliwack, BC

Mini Work Horse

For a minimal price you get a pretty decent machine (4gb Ram) I can be busy with over 15 tabs on the go with no issue. The battery life lasts up to 13 hours depending on how much web video you are devouring. This thing is also very portable. Finding a fitted cover is a good idea to personalize and to protect it. The Chrome OS is easy to use and blazing fast on startup up and update times. I read one review here about a faulty right click on the touchpad. . . 2 finger = right click.

Really nice Chromebook , i think its going to be really good for school))))!!!!!!

Immediate Return

Purchased directly from Best Buy (not Marketplace). Initially pleased but now displeased and item being returned. Touchpad right/left click not working - ASUS support recommended a wipe but no resolve & said the device hardware would have to be repaired. I purchased this for a birthday present - spent time transferring pictures and videos - all but customizing wallpaper because of no right-click - so in the end, the device is being returned to Best Buy. In my mind, it's unacceptable for a new device to require immediate repair - how did this miss quality inspection. So, after 2 hours on the phone, I finally have my return label. I'm so displeased, I just may return the ASUS notebook I purchased 4 days prior - unfortunately from Best Buy for Business - which is not Best Buy - it's Best Buy Marketplace - so different terms, conditions, policies, blah blah blah apply - which is why I avoided the 3rd party sellers. Extremely irritated with both Best Buy & ASUS. My first & last ASUS purchase.

Neat chromebook

This chromebook works beautifully. For browsing and email, it is a hard deal to beat. The screen display isn't the best, however, for basic tasks it works fine. The keyboard layout includes numbers along the top which I prefer to a separate keypad. I like the feel of the keyboard. Limited storage so a storage card or flash drive is recommended. Design is very nice. It actually looks more expensive than it is. If I was going to suggest improvements, I would ask for a way to darken the screen or at least a better way to adjust it. For the price, it is a hard deal to ignore.

Pretty Good

Its it very light weight and it's very cheap. I highly recommend it for school or work. I would give it 5 star but it couldn't download android apps yet though it is planned.

  • from Abbotsford BC


I didn't like it. You couldn't download simple apps. I brought it back for a refundand bought an HP.

  • from Surrey, BC

Great Product!!!

This Chromebook works really well and is very fast! Unlike my elite old laptop, it was very slow and couldn't keep up with my typing. This laptop is very fast, very light to carry, the sound quality is great, and the set up is pretty neat! It's going to be my first year in high school and I think this Chromebook will be very useful for the up coming years. I would totally recommend this wonderful product!!!

  • from Richmond hill,ON


This is the perfect laptop for people on a budget, it isnt even slow it is extremely fast and ou dont require alot of storage casue you can save all your files on google drive like that 16 gb is enough for someone.

  • from Toronto, ON

What a steal!

This is a solid purchase. I use this for day-to-day tasks such as writing reports and e-mails. I also stream videos on YouTube. I'm not very picky about the quality of the video or webcam as it is only [price]!

  • from Coquitlam

Nice little computer

Battery lasts over 10 hours, uses web based apps very nicely. Will probably buy one for my kids too.

  • from Toronto, ON

Great for Students

Bought one of these almost a year ago for my son for high school to carry in his backpack all week. Chrome system works great for him especially as most school work is done one Google class room, so no worries with silly Windows updates interrupting the school day. Battery life is great, lasts whole school day (up to 13 hours as per specs). Just bought another one for his brother. When I bought the first one, there were tons of ratings, all in 4-5 star, and for what I see that is still true with the newer version. This now seems just a newer model, no changes....Best Buy specs lists the new model with an Ethernet port, which it does NOT have, old one did not have it either.... Only thing, the charger is not micro USB and only comes from Asus. We had not problems with ours so far. Again, great carry around laptop alternative for a reasonable price for students, who work mostly on Google apps.

Asus chromebook

Great laptop, had no issues so far

  • from Winnipeg, MB

Great for email and internet

easy to use and keys are nice and fluid....great for email and internet....great little chromebook for the price

  • from Surrey, BC

Got it 6 months ago, works just fine

Lol, I don't know what the other peoples who reviewed this product thought they were buying, but it works great for me. The charge lasts about 9 hrs+ depending on your brightness setting, the Display looks and feels nice, the keyboard is decent, the touch-pad is responsive and all the ports and buttons work fine. For the other reviewers, if you leave any charger plugged in for a few days (like they probably did) or you plug it into an outlet of the wrong voltage, then of course the charger is going to overheat. And I can't stop laughing at the other ones comment of how useless it is without wi-fi! Of course it depends on wi-fi, thats the standard definition of a netbook! LOL. anyway, good product, decent price. I enjoy mine.

Great Chromebook

For anyone who buys one of these and doesn't know what a Chromebook is don't get upset when you find out it is not useful when not connected to WiFi, that's the point people... A really nice little chromebook, looks great in navy blue and it is way way faster than any windows laptop for the price range

Great Chromebook

First of all, anyone who buys a chrome book thinking it is a laptop is completely foolish. You need an internet connection for it to function, that is how they operate. Other than that love the device, for the price point it feels and acts a lot better than what you would expect for the money.

  • from Mississauga, ON

Great Value!

I have had this chrome book for about 8 months! It's a great size, portable, use it at my college courses! Of course Wi-Fi is needed, it's a chrome book! There are probably fancier or maybe faster chrome books out there but , for what I needed, this has been a Good buy for the money!

Pretty darn good

I bought my chromebook on a black friday sale. It was affordable, attractive and simply fit the needs for my work. Its definitely not great for any games. Like at all. It's perfect for researching, writing out reports, essays, blah blah blah blah. Pretty much does the rudimentary thing all computers should be able to do. My only complaints are when I am on social media, scrolling to fast or clicking to many things, the pages crash. Kind of annoying but it only happens occasionally. Secondly, it is not as blue as it looks in the picture. Its way darker. Plus the camera sucks, (But lets be honest, nobody should be trying to take quality photos with a Chromebook. Just get a camera.) Video chatting is not grade A either. Other than that, the battery life and charging time is incredible! It charges in no time at all and practically lasts all day! I thought it was going to be too fragile to carry around, but its quite the robust machine. Not to mention I'm able to access my google docs without wifi. For the price I got it at, and the way it works, it's really helpful. (Btw, if your looking to buy this for a kid, than stop. I know I said it was pretty robust, but kids are a whole different story. This thing can handle being jostled around a backpack and tossed onto sofas, not mini humans.)

holds up to daily student use

Love this device -- it is even much lighter, sleeker and faster than our school board's current brand. I bought a couple out of my own pocket to supplement my class' allocation, and these ASUS ones are the ones my student rush to grab first. They've had a lot of attention (re: USE) since I bought them before Christmas - and they have held up to near constant use over the last 4 months. I couldn't be happier with the purchase. Other reviewers who state that this product is useless without WiFi don't understand what a chromebook is for -- this is NOT a laptop, it is a cheap way to get tech into the hands of all students. Yes, you do need the internet to use a Google Drive since it lives on the web.

  • from Charlottetown pei

Great little laptop

It's a good price and much better than a tablet in my opinion. Does what it should and really user friendly. I would definitely recommend this to anyone who wants it for basic use, YouTube/email/facebook Google docs etc. I also use it for streaming Enjoy

  • from Chatham, ON

  • from Toronto, ON

Doesn't serve any use

Bought this model four months ago and found it totally useless when wi-fi is not available. Don't recommend any one to buy it !

  • from Saint Albert, AB

charger issues after 2 months

recognize this is a cheap chromebook but didn't think of it as a disposable version. charger stopped working after 2 months - none available to buy at best buy, only option is to send chromebook in to Asus.
