74.9% Asus BR1100FKA in review: Affordable and shockproof convertible | Notebookcheck
The Asus BR1100FKA costs less than 400 Euros (~$476) and is equipped with simple hardware. However, this is accompanied by a robust and splashproof case as well as by an unexpected expansion option. Our review shows what the Asus convertible has to offer in the end.
90% ASUS BR1100F review: A one of a kind notebook for young students and children
Source: Hardware Zone English
The ASUS BR1100F makes a particularly good case to fill that gap and then some. For S$699 at retail, it’s one ridiculously over-engineered notebook that seems robust enough to withstand abuses from cavalier schoolers and butter-fingered children. It can even transform into a tablet too, and together with the bundled stylus, allows it to function as a digital doodling board. That, the webcam, camera, and relatively decent power to run basic computing tasks and very light gaming also makes the BR1100F a very compelling choice that parents can introduce to their young children as their first notebook. Granted, there are notebooks with better specifications out there, and even notebooks that are priced lower, but the ASUS BR1100F is truly one of a kind.

ASUS BR1100FK review - Affordable, tough and feature-filled laptop
Source: Tech Nave English
Overall, the ASUS BR1100FK perfectly fits with the intended audience of students and teachers, especially those on a budget at just RM1699 as it offers nearly every feature one could need including a built-in stylus, plenty of ports, a tough durable almost drop proof chassis, spillproof keyboard and more. In addition, there’s also the BR1100CK version with no touch screen for just RM1449 if you don’t need or want the stylus or tablet capabilities. However, adults who work in more challenging situations could also benefit from the BR1100FK as it’s basically like getting a military-grade drop proof laptop for the price of an entry-level device. Most tough laptops that could withstand such treatment were generally priced upwards of RM5K. Granted, the Intel Celeron processor and 4GB of RAM do make it unsuitable for demanding design and video work but it’s good enough for most everything else.

ASUS BR1100F Student’s Laptop Review
Source: Yugatech English
With the laptop’s features, flexibility and durability—it is indeed one reliable device to drive students’ online learning. The ASUS BR1100F is definitely true to its claim as child-friendly, as it comes equipped with clever protective features, such as an all-around rubber bumper, military-grade durability, spill-resistant keyboard, and a sturdy hinge. For these reasons, this one’s worth getting, especially for those looking for an affordable laptop that can also cope with the students’ needs.

ASUS BR1100F Review: EEE PC in the Modern Age
Source: Unbox English
Our review of the BR1100F in the Philippines shows that ASUS has finally brought back its student-friendly EEE PC concept with a modern touch. The netbook for the future now with amenities like USB-C with PD support, WiFi 6, garaged stylus, IPS touchscreen panel, and an M.2 expansion slot. All of those niceties make the BR1100F a vastly better version of its spiritual predecessor, setting the new benchmark for ultra-budget laptops geared towards students. People may not like the modest Celeron processor and tiny 64GB eMMC storage, but the latter is easily addressed and the former is justified by the fact that the BR1100F has a specific target market in mind.

Source: NLT English
And again – for the price of just RM1,599, this is an amazing laptop for kids and even some adults who don’t need the most powerful machine. The convertible form factor and a touchscreen make it an even better deal, honestly.

80% ASUS BR1100F Review – Super Tough And Cheap Laptop Convertible For Students Under RM1,600
Source: Hitech Century English
The ASUS BR1100F is a feature-packed convertible that is ideal for young students up to Standard 6 and even a few years beyond that into secondary school; that’s up to Year 12 if you translate it to the US school system. For a reasonable price tag, you get a tough device running Windows 10 that can double as a tablet and a laptop while packing in a stylus and long battery life too. The limited performance means it’s useful up to a point but it’s more than enough for young students up to secondary school if you avoid heavier tasks like video editing and the like.

68% Asus BR1100F Review – Education Essentials
Source: Pokde English
However, the CPU for this particular variant is a little too weak, the speakers could use major improvements, there is no backlighting for the keyboard, random delays when using touchscreen with stylus, and the display is reflective with extremely thick bezels. Perhaps with the Intel Pentium Silver, I could give it a better award but in the case of this ASUS BR1100F review, I award this laptop with our Bronze Pokdeward.

76% ASUS BR1100C Review: Rugged Academic Companion
Source: Tech PP English
The ASUS BR1100C is a good choice for students looking for a Windows laptop for their study needs. The battery life of this model is enough to last a full day of study. Since it is a Windows device, students can run programs like Coding IDEs and more. The ASUS BR1100C is priced at 24,999 rupees in India and is available on Flipkart, ASUS Online Store, and select ASUS offline partners. For this price, the build quality of the BR1100C is fantastic and definitely suitable for kids who may not be as careful with their devices as we adults are. The machine’s performance is enough to satisfy your child’s needs, such as typing, getting used to the Windows environment, and more, while being easy on the wallet. The ASUS BR1100C is a good choice for students looking for a Windows machine as an academic companion.

60% Asus ExpertBook BR1100C review: A Laptop even Hulk will struggle to Smash!
Source: The Times of India English
The Asus ExpertBook BR1100C is a very specific laptop with a very specific use case. And it takes pride upon that fact. It is not a laptop for gamers, it is not a laptop for content creators and it is not a general purpose laptop for binging movies or heavy office work. It is a Rs. xxxx laptop which is designed with students in mind. It is a laptop that is designed to last and take damage and still continue to deliver. The basic requirements of a student can definitely be met with this laptop. And it is extremely difficult to find any other competing laptop that can offer the level of durability this laptop has provided. If you are a student who needs an affordable laptop for basic tasks and is guilty of often dropping their electronic devices, go for it. It is made for you.
