  • Major problem - battery kept running down
    Reviewed by RTL - November 13, 2021

    The computer completely ran its battery down every night when the lid was closed. I had enabled the "sleep when cover is closed" in Settings-Power, so this is some kind of defect in software or hardware. What is more, I got the complete run-around with ASUS; ASUS referred me to BestBuy and Bestbuy does not seem set up to try to resolve issues like this. I ended up having to return the computer, and it wasn't clear I could even do this since it was around 14 days (the return window) since I bought it. For clear defects like this, there should be a "no questions asked" return policy, like there is on Amazon, or else there should be resources to try to fix it.

    No, I would not recommend this to a friend.

  • It's a chromebook
    Reviewed by skoutraz - July 18, 2021

    It does not take a genius to understand that a Chromebook is not a PC. Efficient to do the basic task on internet watch small videos with a basic good quality of picture. Good size screen and solid for the keyboard and casing.

    Yes, I would recommend this to a friend.

  • ASUS C523 15.6" Chromebook
    Reviewed by Karen - September 16, 2021

    I like the large screen and the light weight. I find it a little slow loading pages, but the Celeron N3350 is slower, so expect to wait a few seconds longer sometimes. It doesn't delay videos like Youtube or Netflix etc. There doesn't seem to be a delete button like a computer ( at least I can't find it) but there is a backspace button so it works like cellphone for deleting words etc. The battery charges fast and lasts a few hours. There are 2 USB type ports for the charger and there isn't a right side up or down, so you just plug it in. There are 2 regular USB ports, a round headphone port and another USB type port but I don't know what it's for. Overall I like it. I also got it on an open box sale so the price was really great. I recommend it for anyone who likes a larger screen, needs something for emails, watching Youtube / Netflix and internet searching. You can download files. If you do a lot of downloads you might want to get a regular computer or an external hard drive or USB stick to store the files.

    Yes, I would recommend this to a friend.

    Chromebooks are so bad. you can't run anything on them. it's basically just a phone. not a computer. you can only run PHONE APPS. just go buy a windows laptop. its worth the extra money. don't waste your money on this thing.

    No, I would not recommend this to a friend.
