The Asus Chromebook CX1 is one of the best budget laptops to buy during Amazon’s Prime Early Access Sale. It boots in seconds, has a long-lasting battery and has built-in virus protection.
Right now, the Asus Chromebook CX1 is just $199 (opens in new tab) on Amazon. That’s $80 less than the regular price of $279 and one of the best Prime Early Access Chromebook deals you can get.
The Asus Chromebook CX1 (CX1400) is one of the best Chrome OS laptops out there. It has an impressive 14-inch (1920 x 1080) display, a size and resolution you rarely see on a Chromebook.
Powering the machine is a 1.1-GHz dual-core Intel Celeron N3350 CPU paired with 4GB of RAM. To store your important files, it gives you 64GB of microSD expandable storage. While these specs may not seem like much, on Google’s light and efficient Chrome OS, it’s powerful enough for creating documents, browsing the web and streaming.
For your connectivity needs, the Chromebook CX1 has plenty of ports. You get two USB 3.2 Gen 1 Type-A ports, two USB 3.2 Gen 1 Type-C with display and power delivery support and a built-in 3.5mm headphone/microphone combo jack. There’s also a built-in microSD card reader on board for storage expansion and file transfer.
If you’re looking for an affordable large-screen laptop for home, school and basic tasks, the Asus Chromebook CX1 is a solid choice.
