The ASUS Chromebook C523NA is a good bet if you\u2019re shopping for a reasonably priced Chromebook with a large display. The C523NA is powered by an Intel Celeron N3350 processor backed by 4GB of DDR RAM and 64GB of flash storage giving it sufficient horsepower for surfing the web, streaming videos, and doing most everything you\u2019d want to do with a Chromebook. The screen of C523NA is bigger than the HP Chromebook x360 14 or the Acer Chromebook 514 which is a plus for many seniors. Chrome OS also provides a simple streamlined computing experience favored by many seniors over and above their experiences using Microsoft Windows. Check out GR\u2019s Best Chromebook for Seniors buyer\u2019s guide for comparison of the ASUS Chromebook C523NA against other notable Chromebook offerings.\r\n\r\nWhy We Like It - ASUS Chromebook C523NA\r\nThe ASUS Chromebook C523NA has a large display, an ample keyboard, great performance, sufficient storage, and reasonable battery life, all for a bargain basement price.\r\n\r\nDisplay Type\r\nThe ASUS Chromebook C523NA is one of the few Chromebooks featuring a large 15.6-inch touch screen display. It has a super-thin narrow bezel, something ASUS calls a NanoEdge display. The accurate touchscreen has a glossy protective coating which some users say has too much reflection and doesn\u2019t do well stopping glare. The large display is secured with two sturdy hinges that allow it to be folded flat (180 degrees), but not backwards to turn the Flip C523NA into a tablet like a so-called \u201c2-in-1\u201d convertible such as a Lenovo Yoga C630. The touchscreen of the Flip C523NA is good for many Android apps which are now available for download on Chromebooks.\r\nResolution\r\nThe ASUS Chromebook C523NA has native 1080p resolution (1920 x 1080 pixels), giving it a sharp picture with good detail. White balance is warmer than some other Chromebooks, although the 231-nit screen brightness of the C523NA beats the 221-nit average of other budget Chromebooks. Colors are weaker on the C523NA than on some other displays --just 76% of the sRGB color gamut. The integrated 720p webcam is serviceable, although not particularly distinguishing.\r\nBattery Life\r\nThe claimed battery life of the ASUS Chromebook C523NA is 10 hours, but most user comments reported far less life. Battery life always varies according to use, so typical real world battery life of around 6-7 hours of medium-to-heavy use should be expected. The C523NA also has a cooling fan so heat is not a problem.\r\nWeight\r\nThe ASUS Chromebook C523NA weighs 3.8 pounds, although this is nicely distributed so it doesn\u2019t feel heavy when carried. However the oversize display tends to make the Flip C523NA feel top heavy when it\u2019s open according to some user comments.\r\nDurability\r\nThe ASUS Chromebook C523NA is well built and sturdy, with a metal case that says this isn\u2019t your typical budget Chromebook. The aluminum case is a bit over 14 inches wide, and the display lid is nicely rigid with no flex. Two stereo speakers are mounted on the bottom, but they don\u2019t have much bass response. ASUS provides a one-year warranty. Google \u201cexpires\u201d support for Chromebook models 8 years after their first introduction --the hardware keeps working but no further software updates are downloaded. ASUS introduced the C523 in 2018.\r\nASUS Chromebook C523NA Wrap Up\r\nThe Acer Chromebook C523NA is a terrific laptop for a modest investment. Great for most everyday tasks such as web surfing, email, word processing, video calls with family, and a myriad of other things accomplished within a Google Chrome browser. It looks and feels just like a premium Chromebook, except without the premium price tag.
