Asus C300ma-edu Chromebook 13-Inch 32GB SSD 4GB RAM

I have a 15 inch laptop that I used to bring whenever I go to college, however, I recently purchased this ASUS Asus C300ma-edu Chromebook to be an alternative. I decided on a Chromebook because I am using Google’s productivity apps like Google docs, drives, sheets, etc, it’s just the perfect OS to run these apps daily.

Bought it here since it’s less.

Every day, since I purchased it a few weeks ago, I always have this Chromebook in my class, and haven’t found big complains about it. I will try going through for the bad and the good.

Enough Acer Aspire E 15 ES1-512-C88M 15.6-Inch Laptop (Diamond Black)

I needed a budget laptop that I can use for college, a little bit of gaming, other than a 11.6 inch, and can last me a while. With this Acer Aspire E 15 ES1, I really was not expecting a lot, and I am positively surprised as it works and does its daily job so well.

Another surprise, it was unexpected with reasonable price on Amazon!

Honestly, I was skeptical due to its “Intel Celeron” CPU, so this Acer Aspire E 15 ES1-512-C88M was very tough to decide.

Acer Aspire E 11 ES1-111M-C40S 11.6-Inch Laptop (Diamond Black) No Chromebook

I purchased this Acer Aspire E 11 ES1-111M-C40S laptop last week and this 11.6-inch machine has been running very well ever since. The small one drawback for me is the storage size, which is a 32GB and after installed other programs, like another browser, and my preferred anti-virus, it will be about 11GB left, but it’s still OK because I can still use the SD card slot to add extra storage.

This 11-inch laptop will not beat better specs-ed laptops, purchased the most reasonable price on Amazon, but it is definitely a better laptop than any laptops that have an atom processor.

The N2840 processor is an updated version of Atom, this is why it’s more fast and powerful.

Is Toshiba Satellite C55-B5298 16-inch Laptop Just Usable?

The very con of this Toshiba Satellite C55-B5298 to me is the keyboard, which is a little bit more to the left because of its configuration, it has numpad, but you will need time to get used to. It’s still manageable, but it’s a little bit difficult to type at first.

Aside from that, been messing around with this laptop for a week, and there is not too much to complain about it. Not the fastest, or the prettiest laptop, but it’s decently fast for my daily computing stuff like internet, MS Office, and streaming YouTube videos.

Is Asus X551MAV-RCLN06 15.6″ Notebook PC Worth It?

I have my desktop as the main computer at home, and I wanted an affordable ASUS machine to take for my classes.

I have used a Chromebook in the past years, and although it was great, it had some limitations in what I can do on it.

So I need a cheap machine where I can take everywhere, and if it were stolen, I wouldn’t regret buying an expensive laptop.

I have been searching around, and for this price, this Asus x551mav-rcln06 is the best deal available at the moment.

Decent ASUS 15.6-Inch HD Dual-Core 2.16GHz Laptop, 500GB

I needed a full laptop personal computer, and not a netbook, or a Chromebook, so I really love this laptop. I use my desktop at home, and use a laptop whenever I am out of the house, to works with Excel or Word, Skype, iTunes, and YouTube.

I actually bought it from here as it’s bit lower in price.

I was a bit skeptical after seeing the price tag, as I was searching for an affordable laptop. The laptop isn’t powerful at all, but I like it because it’s a good machine.

Dell Inspiron i3531-1200BK 15.6-Inch Laptop N2830 Baytrail CPU

I bought this Dell Inspiron i3531-1200BK two weeks ago to replace my old (5 years) 17″ Dell notebook, look how you can find the service tag here.

I looked for a laptop with smaller screen size, because with a 17″, it is a bit too big to use it in the lap.

The Dell Inspiron i3531 size is exactly ideal for my need. There are a few similar specs Windows 8.1 laptop that has the same N2830 Baytrail processor, but one has only 2gigs of RAM (this one has 4gigs preinstalled), and the other one (not yet out) has only 3 cell and this laptop has 4.
