TODAY'S BEST DEALS

Chromebook displays are generally on the small side, but now larger options are finally starting to sprout up. A giant compared to its direct competitors, the Asus Chromebook C523NA flaunts a large 15.6-inch, 1080p panel. You get that crisp display along with an aluminum chassis and good performance for just $349. However, the C523NA's short battery life damages its strong value.

Asus Chromebook C523NA Price and Configuration Options

The Chromebook C523NA is available in two configurations. For $269, the base model gets you a 15.6-inch, 1366 x 768-resolution nontouch display, an Intel Celeron N3350 CPU, 4GB of RAM and 32GB of storage. The $349 model I reviewed has better specs across the board, including a 1080p touch screen, a Pentium N4200 CPU, 4GB of RAM and 64GB of flash storage.

Design

Lightweight, slim and made of metal, the Chromebook C523NA isn't your average budget laptop. In fact, it's so convincing that I would have been kicked off the Price Is Right if I had been asked to guess the laptop's price based on its design alone.

The Chromebook C523NA's aluminum chassis distracted me from its bland appearance. A plain silver finish extends from the lid to the deck, a chrome Asus logo and colorful Chrome orb adorn the top of the laptop, and the only contrast on this machine comes from its black keyboard.

There was minimal lid flex when I applied pressure to the C523NA, which is reassuring, and even somewhat unusual for an aluminum laptop in this price range.

Lightweight, slim and made of metal, the Chromebook C523NA isn't your average budget laptop.

Without the razor-thin bezels we've seen on other laptops, the Chromebook C523 has a wide chassis, at 14.1 x 9.8 x 0.6 inches. Still, that's a good deal smaller than its 15-inch competitor, the Acer Chromebook 15 (14.9 x 10.1 x 0.8 inches). The 11-inch Dell Chromebook 5190 (12 x 8.2 x 0.8 inches) is predictably smaller than the Asus, but it's much thicker.

The Chromebook C523NA's 3.8-pound weight is nicely distributed across its frame, making it feel light. The Acer Chromebook 15 weighs a bit less at 3.7 pounds, while the smaller Dell Chromebook 5190 weighs in at 2.9 pounds.

Ports

You won't have any problems connecting other gadgets to the C523NA, thanks to its four USB ports.

Each side of the laptop houses a USB 3.1 Type-A and USB Type-C port for charging and plugging in peripherals, like a mouse and keyboard.

You'll also find a microSD card slot and a headphone/mic jack on the left side of the C523NA.

Display

I was pleasantly surprised to discover that such a low-cost laptop comes equipped with a 1080p touch-screen display. Although the 15.6-inch panel isn't the most colorful, the amount of detail it reveals puts it ahead of other budget laptops.

When I watched a trailer for the upcoming action sequel John Wick 3: Chapter 3 -- Parabellum, I could see individual drops of rain falling on our battered protagonist as he evaded the world's top assassins. On the down side, while I could read the billboard advertisements behind Keanu Reeves, the illuminated signs reflected muted color against a soaked concrete street.

The display was harsh on my eyes when I browsed some of my favorite websites. White balance was on the warm side and whites, in general, were overexposed, making some web pages appear bleached.

Although the C523NA's 15.6-inch panel isn't the most colorful, the amount of detail it reveals puts it ahead of other budget laptops.

I wasn't surprised to discover that the C523NA's display covers only 76 percent of the sRGB color gamut. While the displays on the Acer Chromebook 15 (69 percent) and the Dell Chromebook 5190 (73 percent) are even less colorful, the Asus Chromebook failed to reach the category average (81 percent).

Conversely, the C523NA's display (231 nits) topped the Chromebook category average (221 nits) for maximum brightness, but it isn't as luminous as the 11-inch panel on the Dell Chromebook 5190 (258 nits). The Acer Chromebook 15's display peaked at a dim 215 nits.

The C523NA can also be configured with a 1366 x 768-pixel nontouch display. We recommend 1080p as a minimum display resolution, but the lower-end C523NA model may offer better battery life.

The optional touch screen is a convenient addition. However, the C523NA can only be folded flat and can't be flipped into tablet mode, limiting its versatility as a touch-ready device.

Keyboard and Touchpad

The island-style keyboard on the C523NA provides a decent typing experience.

Adequate spacing between the standard-sized keys prevented me from accidentally tapping the wrong letter. I also didn't bottom out because, despite its relatively slim profile, the laptop's flat black keys depress 1.5 millimeters (which meets our 1.5-mm to 2-mm key travel recommendation). Better yet, the key's 62 grams of actuation force allowed me to type at a quick pace, although I wish they were a bit more tactile.

I typed at 103 words per minute with a 94 percent accuracy rate on the 10FastFingers typing test. My typical averages are slightly higher, at 109 wpm with 95 percent accuracy.

I had no problems using the 4 x 2.8-inch touchpad to move my cursor around the web and execute Chrome OS gestures, like a three-finger swipe up to open all windows.

Audio

The dual speakers on the bottom of the Chromebook C523 were loud enough to fill a spacious room, but the tunes I listened to sounded thin. When I blared John Mayer's 2001 hit song "No Such Thing," the strum of the acoustic guitar was sharp and the sound of the cymbal clashes was piercing. That's a shame, because Mayer's smooth vocals would have sounded crisp and clear if the high frequencies hadn't ruined the presentation. As expected, Swae Lee's verses were nicely defined in the Ray Sremmurd song "Black Beatles," but the low end lacked weight.

Performance

My low performance expectations were proven wrong by the Chromebook C523 when it swiftly opened 15 Google Chrome tabs while I streamed an Australian Open tennis match. There was a brief delay when I loaded a pair of 1080p YouTube videos, but it didn't take long before everything was fully rendered.

Equipped with a quad-core Intel Pentium N4200 CPU and 4GB of RAM, the Chromebook C523 did a solid job in our benchmark tests. The laptop scored a 4,698 on the Geekbench 4 test, which measures overall performance. That edges out the Dell Chromebook 5190 (Intel Celeron N3450, 4,193) and nearly doubles the category average (2,469).

I expect Chromebooks to last an entire school day on a charge, but the Chromebook C523NA barely makes it past lunch.

The Chromebook C523NA earned a score of 65.6 on the JetStream JavaScript benchmark, falling just short of the category average (68.9) and the Acer Chromebook 15 (Intel Pentium N4200, 66.6). It did, however, outperform the Dell Chromebook 5190 (54.5) by a good margin.

MORE: The Laptops with the Best CPU Performance

With an integrated HD Graphics 505 GPU, the C523 isn't meant to run anything beyond what you can download in the Play Games store. For those less-demanding games, the C523 will do just fine. The laptop displayed 500 fish at a smooth 66 frames per second on the WebGL Aquarium benchmark test. That tops the Dell Chromebook 5190 (46 fps), Acer Chromebook 15 (51 fps) and the category average (49 fps).

Chrome OS

Chromebooks are now the most popular laptops in the K-12 market, and it's easy to see why. Chrome OS is a simple, streamlined operating system centered on the ubiquitous Chrome web browser. The interface has a familiar layout, with a task bar on the bottom and shortcut icons in the lower-right corner. The OS is secure and easy to use, making it a great fit for low-cost laptops targeted at students.

Google added Android app support to Chromebooks, greatly expanding what you can do on a Chrome OS laptop. However, there are still some compatibility kinks to iron out. I noticed those issues right away when I fired up a Snake game that took up only about a third of the Chromebook C523NA's large display. Fortunately, our touch-screen C523NA avoided some of the annoyances created by Android apps that were written for touch input.

Battery Life

I expect Chromebooks to last an entire school day on a charge, but the Chromebook C523NA barely makes it past lunch. The laptop powered down after just 6 hours and 30 minutes on the Laptop Mag Battery Test, which involves continuous web surfing over Wi-Fi at 150 nits. That's a poor result, considering the average Chromebook (9:04) and Acer Chromebook 15 (9:07) endured for just over 9 hours, while the Dell Chromebook 5190 (9:30) stayed powered for more than 3 hours longer than the Asus.

Webcam

The 720p webcam above the Chromebook C523NA's display takes blurry, muddy pictures. My facial features were indistinct in a selfie I shot in my brightly lit apartment.

The camera also did a poor job capturing the color of my sweater, which appeared dark grey instead of forest green. The webcam is good enough for a quick chat with a teacher or parent, but you'll want an external solution for frequent use.

Heat

The C523NA's fans did an excellent job dispersing heat across the laptop's wide aluminum frame, preventing it from ever reaching uncomfortable temperatures. Even after we played a 15-minute HD video in full screen, the bottom of the C523NA heated to only 89 degrees Fahrenheit, well below our 95-degree comfort threshold. The rest of the laptop was even cooler, with the touchpad reaching only 80 degrees and the center of the keyboard topping out at 88 degrees.

Warranty and Support

Asus sells the Chromebook C523NA with a one-year warranty. See how the company performed in our Tech Support Showdown and Best and Worst Brands ranking.

Bottom Line

The Chromebook C523NA is a lot of laptop for not a lot of money. For just $359, you get a large and detailed display, an aluminum chassis and adequate performance for everyday use. While I wish the display were more vivid, it's much harder to overlook the laptop's poor battery life.

For the same money, you can purchase the Acer Chromebook 15. This 15.6-inch laptop is extremely similar to the C523NA, but at more than 9 hours, it offers significantly longer battery life. Alternatively, the Dell Chromebook 5190 also has all-day endurance, and its rugged chassis is a reassuring feature if you're purchasing a laptop for your child.

Overall, the Asus Chromebook C523NA is a good option if you want a Chromebook with a large display, but we'd choose the Acer instead.

1. Customers can use the DPD app to nominate a ‘safe place’ for their delivery to be left if they do not want close contact.

For customers unable to use the DPD app, DPD is still able to offer a contact-free delivery and will take a picture of the property and capture a proof of delivery name instead of capturing a customer signature.

2. Royal Mail is an unsigned service. Where Royal Mail needs to deliver a parcel, its teams will place the parcel at the customer’s door. Having knocked on the door, the delivery teams will step aside to a safe distance while the item is retrieved. If the delivery cannot take place, Royal Mail will take the parcel to the local depot for collection by the customer.  The parcel will be held for 18 days as per normal process.

3. For On the Dot, where a standard signature delivery is not possible, On the Dot will attempt to leave the parcel in a safe place and inform the customer of where the parcel has been placed.

ASUS C523 15.6" Chromebook - Intel® Celeron™, 64 GB eMMC, Silver
Sours: https://www.currys.co.uk/gbuk/computing/laptops/laptops/asus-c523-15-6-chromebook-intel-celeron-64-gb-emmc-silver-10209121-pdt.html
Asus Chromebook C423 N3350 14 Inch

Asus Chromebook Flip C436 review: pricey, premium Chromebook

The Chromebook Flip C436 has big shoes to fill. Asus is known for producing solid Chromebooks, but last year’s C434 was the top of its class. It had a thin-bezeled, slim and light chassis, excellent performance, and a 360-degree hinge with a starting price of just $569. We called it the best Chromebook you could buy in 2019.

This year’s C436 is considerably more expensive, starting at $799. Because of the price point, Asus says it’s not to be compared with the company’s previous Chromebooks, to which I say: good luck with that. It’s necessary to compare any new release to the C434, simply because the C434 (which Asus has no plans to discontinue) is the Chromebook to beat. And if there’s one company I trust to put out a sub-$900 device that could unseat the C434, it’s Asus itself.

At $800, we should expect this Chromebook to have significant advantages over Chromebooks in the $550-$650 price range. And there’s certainly a lot to like about the C436. But the device’s greatest weakness — its battery life — is a significant mark against it. Meanwhile, alternatives like the Pixelbook Go and Asus’ own C434 have lower-powered processors, but still offer good performance and much better battery life at a lower price. If the C436 were cheaper, it might be in the mix. At this price point, I don’t think it is.

Cover up the Chrome logo, and you could easily fool observers into thinking this was a Windows Ultrabook. Like its predecessor, the C436 makes use of small bezels (4.9mm on the side and 6.5mm on the top; Asus claims an 85 percent screen-to-body ratio) to pack a 14-inch screen into a chassis the size of many 13-inch models. The magnesium alloy body feels quite sturdy, and the 360 hinge is stable. And it’s all fairly portable, at 2.4 pounds and 13.7mm thick — that’s not as thin as Samsung’s premium Galaxy Chromebook, but it is slimmer than most of its peers. It’s available now in silver, and white is coming later this month.

Open this up, and you’ll arrive at my favorite part of this Chromebook: the keyboard. It’s clicky, snappy, and comfortable; even though I didn’t surpass my usual typing speeds, I felt like my fingers were flying. I always find Asus’ keyboard font a bit quaint, but it’s clearly legible with or without the backlight on. There’s also a fingerprint reader for logging into Chrome OS in the top right, which was quick, accurate, and something you won’t find on Google’s Pixelbook Go.

The touchpad is similarly smooth and responsive, but I had some hiccups with the clicking. There was some resistance when I pressed lightly, but the actuation point was much higher than the initial resistance. In other words: every click felt like it involved two clicks. I got used to that, and I still prefer it to a touchpad that’s really stiff, but it still made the whole experience feel a bit clunky. Artists and note-takers can also add on a stylus, though that didn’t ship with my review unit and I wasn’t able to test it.

Port selection is okay, but unexceptional. You’ve got a USB-C on each side (no Thunderbolt 3, of course, because this is a Chromebook), a 3.5mm audio jack on the left, and a microSD slot on the right. I would like to see a USB-A, especially at this price point — plenty of other manufacturers have managed to work that into similarly slim form factors.

The webcam is also serviceable, presenting a picture that was fairly dark (even in bright settings) but crisp and defined enough that fellow Zoom-meeting participants could easily see my facial expressions and details of the room around me. And I had no problem with the Harman Kardon-certified speakers — there are two built into the hinge and one into each side of the cover. Their sound wasn’t quite as clear as that of a good external speaker, but it was certainly better than what you’ll generally hear from laptops with downward-firing audio, and it had a decent surround quality.

A big reason for C436’s price jump from its predecessor is that we’ve gotten a processor bump from the C434’s entry-level Core m3 chip. My test model (the base model, priced at $799) has a 10th Gen Intel Core i3-10110U processor coupled with 8GB of RAM and 128GB of storage — a generous amount as far as Chromebooks go. That chip would be underpowered among Windows laptops, but Chrome OS is a more efficient operating system and an i3 more than gets the job done here.

You can also get a configuration with 16GB RAM, a 512GB SSD, and a Core i5-10210U for $999. I can’t imagine most people need that upgrade, unless you plan on installing Linux and using it for development work. The Core i3 performs just fine for everyone else.

Chrome OS was a smooth experience on this device, and flipping in and out of tablet mode was seamless. I won’t get into the weeds about the state of Google’s operating system because the software experience isn’t specific to the C436, but the usual caveats apply. The boot time is fast, the interface is intuitively simple, and you don’t have to restart for system updates every five minutes. But Android apps — a big draw of the ecosystem — continue to be a hit-or-miss experience, and opportunities to run anything more demanding than Lightroom (for non-Linux users, which is most people) are limited.

Most top Android apps ran great on the C436 (Solid Explorer, Podcast Addict, LastPass, 1Weather, Kaspersky), while some were usable but slower than their browser equivalents (Facebook, Slack, Maps, Drive, Find My Device), and a couple have serious problems (Call of Duty Mobile crashed every time I tried to play, CamScanner doesn’t connect to the webcam, I had to uninstall Messenger because Chrome crashed whenever I got a notification).

I got all the browsing I needed done, flipping between a dozen Chrome tabs and several Android apps at a time, and occasionally streaming some Spotify, downloading from the Play Store, or hopping on a Zoom call. No stuttering, no freezing or crashing. In Chrome browsing, the C436 was just about as fast as the i5-powered Galaxy Chromebook. The only place I noticed a difference was in demanding programs like Lightroom, where some processes took a few seconds longer. Most serious photo editors aren’t going for a Chromebook, so I’m not too concerned about that.

But the biggest price you’re paying for this performance — aside from the actual sticker price — and the reason I don’t think the C436 quite beats its competition is in the battery life. Asus put a 42Wh battery in this notebook, a downgrade from the 48Wh brick that powered the C434. Throw in the upgraded processor and it’s not surprising that this thing burns through juice pretty quickly. In a day of browsing with a combination of apps and Chrome tabs (running Twitter, Slack, Zoom, Gmail, Reddit, Docs, Sheets, and the like) I got about five hours to a charge (and I could hear the fan most of the time, though it wasn’t terribly loud). Five hours isn’t enough to power through a work day, and it’s dwarfed by more affordable competitors like the Pixelbook Go, which pushed eight hours in our testing.

When I just left video running, I got almost twice that — I suspect that Google is pushing clocks down during video playback, and browsing is causing the i3 to hit load through some mixture of app and webpage optimization. Most people buy Chromebooks intending to browse with them, though, not to loop 1080p video all day, so the browsing number is the one you should care about more.

The strongest argument in favor of the C436 is its build; it’s impressively compact for a 14-inch convertible, and the keyboard is a standout. It looks like it could be a Zenbook, Asus’ line of premium Windows laptops. Show it to anyone who still thinks Chromebooks are cheap gags for students, and they’ll probably be convinced otherwise. And there’s no reason to be turned off by the Core i3 sticker: this thing is elegant and speedy, and the fan, while audible, effectively keeps it from frying, unlike Samsung’s fanless Galaxy Chromebook.

That’s why I’m so disappointed by the battery life, because I think it turns a Chromebook that could’ve been the best in its class to one that is just okay. Starting at $649, you can get the Pixelbook Go, which has a lower-powered processor but also performs quite well and has a much better battery life. You’re mostly giving up the convertible design and the fingerprint sensor, and I’d be hard-pressed to call those upgrades that are worth $150 and a few hours of juice. If you’re not wed to Chrome OS, you can also get quite good Windows convertibles close to this price, including the Lenovo Yoga C740. Fortunately, Asus is still going to be selling the C434, which offers a similar build, the ability to flip into a tablet, and some of the best battery life you can get in a Chromebook.

There’s a lot that I like about the C436. I just like the competition a little bit more.
