This is an excellent value and a very well rounded sub $200 laptop. It performs well, has excellent battery life of over 10-11 hours, and has more consistent gaming performance as compared to other 2016 laptops we looked at - namely the Stream 11 from HP, Cloudbook from Acer, and Dell Inspiron 11.
My only gripe? The keyboard. It feels very much like a netbook keyboard from the early days of low cost PCs and could be better. I also noticed that its Octane benchmark tests for web browsing were a little bit lower than it should be given that it's running a current generation Atom Cherry Trail processor.
Those minor issues aside this is another great value from Asus.
