Its been 5 months since I purchased Asus X200 CA and I felt its really important to share my view after using this notebook for this long. Though its priced reasonably at $299.99 on Amazon.com you may still have doubts about the performance and built quality.
Before I talk about the performance and build quality, I would like to compliment Asus for not compromising on its looks. The slightly textured look give it a little more character and personality than other budget plastic looking laptops. The laptop is smaller in size thus making it portable. It’s just 2.12 cm thick and weighs about 1.3 kg. The X200CA comes with 1 HDMI port, 1 VGA port, 1 USB 3.0 port, 2 USB 2.0 port, multi format card reader, Ethernet port, combined headphone and microphone jack.
The keyboard is well spaced and bouncy. The touch-pad is large which is good but its not upto the mark. The touch pad is also a finger print magnet which annoys me a bit.
The best feature is the 11.6 inch screen with a resolution of 1366 x 768 pixel. Pictures looked sharp even in the small screen . Blacks are a little grey which is obviously expected in low price laptops. It also has an integrated HD webcamera. The webcamera quality is good if not the best. As we say “You get what you pay for“.
The charge lasts for around 2:30 mins although it says 3 hours. To extend the backup , lower the display settings and reduce the brightness. Its advisable to carry the charger with you even if you are travelling for a shorter distance. Its better to take precautions.
