Asus Chromebook C223
Reviews for the Asus Chromebook C223
Source: Laptop Media
We would like to say that Chromebooks have come a long way. However, most of them didn’t. In fact, devices like the ASUS Chromebook C223 show the progress of the PC, MacBook, and smartphone industries. ASUS Chromebook C223’s display has a budget TN panel. Its viewing angles are uncomfortable, covers only half of the sRGB color space, and it uses PWM for brightness adjustment. Its only technical advantage is the quick pixel response time. Everything about this notebook speaks of its affordability. Its hardware, build quality, etc. Ultimately, the best thing about it is the keyboard, which is spill-resistant, and comfortable for typing. Also, you get a decent battery life out of the thing. On the other hand, you should keep in mind that the notebook comes with 4GB of RAM, and either 16 or 32GB of eMMC non-upgradable storage.

Non demanding games should be playable with these graphics cards.
Celeron N3350: A very energy-efficient dual-core SoC from the Apollo Lake series for inexpensive laptops. Runs with clocks between 1.1-2.4 GHz and integrates a DirectX 12 capable graphics adapter. Compared to the previous Celerons, the per-MHz performance of the CPU architecture was vastly improved and the graphics adapter was improved as well.» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.
This screen diagoal is quite large for tablets but small for subnotebooks. Some convertibles are also represented with that size.
