I might be showing my age by saying this, but it’s still crazy to me that you can actually now buy a perfectly capable laptop for under $200. I’m old enough to remember the days when $1,000 couldn’t even get you a very good laptop — it would probably weigh about 10 pounds and have a battery that lasted about 90 minutes. Now, you can snap up an ASUS C201 11.6 Inch Chromebook that weighs just 2 pounds and has great battery life for just $159 on Amazon.

Some highlights:

  • Rockchip 1.8 GHz Processor
  • 4 GB DDR3 RAM
  • Can open/edit MS Office files using free embedded QuickOffice editor or Google Docs, and can download Microsoft Office Online (an online version of Microsoft Office) for free. Cannot install standard MS Office software.
  • 16 GB Solid-State Drive (SSD); No CD or DVD drive
  • 11.6 inches 1366*768 pixels LED-lit Screen
  • Chrome Operating System; Navy Blue Chassis
