Asus Chromebook C202 is easily reparable according to iFixit
The Chromebook C202 may be an excellent starter notebook for younger users due to how easy it is disassemble and troubleshoot the hardware. Asus revealed the 11.6-inch notebook earlier this year at CES 2016 complete with a rubberized frame that also protects the internals from moisture. Components have been designed to be replaceable if needed.
A teardown over at iFixit puts those claims to the test and the results more or less confirm Asus' PR speak. Its final teardown score of 9 out of 10 can be attributed to the simple and modular design of the C202 which even the layperson can take apart with nothing more than a Philips screwdriver. iFixit is also praising the manufacturer for using very little glue and instead utilizing hard plastic clips to secure the materials together.
The few drawbacks keeping the Asus Chromebook away from a perfect score are its linear assembly procedure and soldered RAM and internal storage. This means that access to certain components is buried under layers of other components, which all must be dismantled first. The integrated RAM and SSD prevent users from upgrading the notebook with additional storage space and memory. Beyond these downsides, the C202 is one of the most user-friendly Chromebooks currently available.
