The details

This compact and portable Chromebook is a budget-friendly laptop for students (or those looking for an affordable device). With a simple setup that gets you online in minutes, you can connect your device to your Google account, providing easy access to email, Google Drive, Google Chrome browser and more.

The laptop is powered by the Intel Celeron N5100 Processor 1.1 GHz for fast and snappy performance and comes equipped with 64GB eMMC and 4GB LPDDR4X RAM to store your valuable data, photos and learning materials. Its Chrome OS operating system boasts built-in virus protection, boots up in seconds and won't lag.

Whether you're toting the Chromebook to class or watching your favourite TV show in your spare time, the device offers a 180-degree lay-flat hinge that allows it to be opened fully and lay completely flat.

ASUS Chromebook CX1: Reviews

While the ASUS Chromebook CX1 has limited reviews on Amazon Canada, shoppers on the ASUS website call the device a "great Chromebook for the money" and say it "works great."

It's a "speedy laptop," according to one ASUS reviewer. "Fast and simple — good quality build."

The Chromebook CX1 is "perfect, user-friendly, and at a great price," writes another. "Buy this. It's all you need!"

It's a "good student computer," says a third shopper. It's "completely reliable."

Despite dozens of stellar reviews, some users note that because it's a Chromebook and not a traditional laptop, shoppers must be aware that it may offer a partial range of functions of other brands.
