This will withstand knocks and is close to being a rugged offering. For those who want more than the Google Docs provided, you can download Microsoft Office Online for free but this does require a Microsoft account to be used and this will defeat the everything available from a single log on.

100% Asus C202SA Chromebook Review: A little battler

It's not a do-it-all PC, but this sturdy little travelling companion is a good choice if Chrome suits your purposes

The spec and its performance are certainly ample for the classroom or even university students at work, and we liked its drop- and spill-proof design. The display could do with being a little bigger for older students, admittedly, but for younger students it’s ideal.

ASUS C202 Chromebook — Australian Review
Source: Ausdroid English version
There are a couple of trade offs with the C202, but I have to say that its durability and functionality are the key drivers here. When I consider how easily I could pull the C202 out, fire it up, get through some emails, write a story for Ausdroid, etc, I was quite impressed — this is a main factor for me, at least, when considering a new portable.

80% You won't find a better-built bargain
Source: PC World English version
When you buy an inexpensive Chromebook, you shouldn’t expect superfast performance or amazing components. What sets the Asus C202S apart from other like-priced models is that Asus invested in a better build and even a better keyboard, all of which improve the user experience. As a result, this is one of the very few low-cost Chromebooks I’m willing to recommend.

The durability, affordable price, long battery life, and modular design of the Asus Chromebook C202 make it a good choice if you're looking for a budget computer for yourself or your kids and you don't need Windows. But its sluggish multiple-tab browsing can seriously frustrate anyone trying to work on important projects or documents in Web-based applications. For only $20 more, the Asus Chromebook Flip is a convertible chromebook with a touch screen and impressive multitasking capabilities. The Acer Chromebook R 11, though more expensive, remains our Editors' Choice for its convertible design, large IPS touch screen, and speedy performance.

The Asus C202's purpose-built design ensures it will only ever attract a niche market: parents of school-age children, cost-conscious school boards and chronically clumsy Chromebook lovers. If you're looking for a Chromebook – and you're not a member of the above niche(s) – there are plenty of zippier Chromebooks out there that are just as inexpensive as the C202. They may not have purpose-built rubber bumpers or a rugged chassis, but many do have warranties, and that's often all you'll need to keep them running.

Although Chromebooks are capable of some basic tasks without an Internet connection, they’re meant to be online at all times. The Chrome OS relies on Google’s many online services, including Gmail, Google Drive and Docs, and Google Calendar. A Chromebook is an obvious choice for someone who uses Google products regularly, wants an inexpensive laptop, and is willing to give up a certain amount of performance.

The Asus Chromebook C202 is a notebook worthy of the honor roll. It offers a durable shell, a very comfortable and spill-resistant keyboard, long battery life and decent (if somewhat mixed) performance. This laptop is a tad heavier than the competition, but it should still be in one piece when kids inevitably drop it on the floor.
