In addition to containing all the tools you’d expect from a Chromebook, this ultra-affordable laptop is built to last even in the harshest conditions.
The ASUS Chromebook C204 has a spill-resistant keyboard that can withstand light spills and a durable 3D textured finish that won’t show scratches or fingerprints. Plus, the laptop can withstand drops of up to 3.9 feet, giving parents peace of mind.
Built-in Google software lets you access a library of apps, games, music, movies, TV, books, magazines and more. Additionally, the laptop has up to 11 hours of battery life on a single charge and has a 180-degree flat hinge, mimicking the design of a tablet for reading and other classroom activities.
‘Perfect for school or the office!’
Thanks to its affordable price tag, long battery life and easy setup, Amazon shoppers have given this ASUS laptop top marks.
Earning an average rating of 4.2 stars, buyers recommend the Chromebook for its long battery life, lightweight design and value for money.
The battery lasted me “a full day,” wrote one user. For the price, “Chromebook is great.”

In terms of “value for money,” Chromebooks “simply can’t be beat,” says another.
It is “suitable for school or [the] office!”
Since this laptop runs on the Chrome operating system, it has some definite advantages, as well as some disadvantages. The simple interface is easy to use and syncs with your Gmail account in minutes, but may require a bit of a learning curve if you’re used to using a Windows or Mac laptop.
It is also more suitable for daily tasks such as browsing the internet or editing documents, but may not be the best choice for gaming, or working with large image and video files.
At $139 it’s hard to go wrong with this portable and durable ASUS laptop. Buyers agree that this is a top choice if you’re looking for a “basic” and affordable option, especially one that’s user-friendly for kids and older adults.
Those who need something more powerful may find this Chromebook lacking, but Chromebooks still provide everything you need for those looking for a device with “no extra bells and whistles.”
And if you’re looking for a laptop with a little more power, you can pick up more ASUS devices on sale through Thursday.
