The ASUS C201 has been discontinued as of Spring 2018. For more information about recent models, head over to our updated Chromebook review.
The ASUS C201 is the most inexpensive model we tested that still features 4GB of Random Access Memory and all of the high end performance that comes along with that. We wouldn't suggest buying any Chromebook with less than 4GB of RAM, so this fact alone makes the C201 a great value. The C201 also did well in our interface testing as it had the most responsive trackpad and one one of our favorite keyboards. Top this great performance and interface off with a fairly portable body and decent screen and it's easy to see why the C201 picked up our Best Buy Award. If you're looking for an inexpensive Chromebook and don't want to make any sacrifices in performance the ASUS C201 fits the bill.
