Reviews for the Asus BR1100FKA-BP0109RA
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.
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.

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.

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.

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.

This screen diagoal is quite large for tablets but small for subnotebooks. Some convertibles are also represented with that size.
Large display-sizes allow higher resolutions. So, details like letters are bigger. On the other hand, the power consumption is lower with small screen diagonals and the devices are smaller, more lightweight and cheaper.» To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.
This weight is typical for big tablets, small subnotebooks, ultrabooks and convertibles with a 10-11 inch display-diagonal.
