The Chromebook C202, Asus says, is a “rugged” PC, unsurprisingly featuring Chrome OS “built to withstand the rigors of educational use.”
It’s a lightweight laptop with durability to boot, thanks to its rubber bumper which wraps around the entire notebook, with reinforced corners for extra protection. The C202 also brings with it a spill-resistant keyboard, a scratch-resistant finish, and a shock-proof SSD. It’s even been exposed to military-grade reliability tests in case you’re looking for a laptop for a fourth-grader who has not yet overcome the impulse to physically channel their anger.
It’s a low-cost notebook with low specs to match. The 11.6-inch 1,366 x 768 anti-glare display with an Intel Celeron N3060 processor and 2-to-4GB of onboard memory isn’t going to impress anyone with basic PC smarts, but clearly that’s not Asus’ audience with this device. This is likely geared towards grade school students looking to do the bulk of their work online, especially with that measly 16GB of eMMC local storage space.
