Reviews for the Asus C201PA-DS01 Chromebook

80% A solid Chromebook with great battery life
Source: PC Pro English
Nevertheless, the Asus C201 Chromebook has carved out its own niche, and it all comes back to battery life and portability. Its screen isn’t perfect, nor is it the world’s most luxurious laptop, but if you want something that you can sling into a bag for a weekend, and not have to worry about chargers, it’s an excellent choice.
