Chromebooks are definitely going to be a hot seller this holiday season, thanks to Google bringing the Google Play Store over to these popular machines. The ASUS C201 Chromebook is one of many that will be getting Android apps and games in the next few weeks, and right now it's available for just $179. That's not a huge price drop, but it still makes this a pretty desirable machine from ASUS. This is the 4GB of RAM and 16GB of SSD storage model, so you'll have plenty of RAM to use the Chromebook without any issues.
ASUS claims that the C201 does offer up to about 13 hours of battery life. Now that does, as always, depend on how you use the Chromebook. For example, if you are writing in Google Docs, it'll last longer, but if you are watching videos on YouTube you may not get the full 13 hours. The C201 is a lower-end Chromebook, but it should be able to run everything you want to do pretty easily. You can pick it up at Amazon and Newegg for $179. However, Newegg is offering an extra $10 off if you use the promo code 35VERECF36 at checkout, making it even cheaper. It is also offered in multiple colors.
