Connections

You'll find Wifi 5 inside the laptop, which is the previous generation. However, this does not mean its necessarily a major disadvantage. Wifi 5 is more than capable for the majority of the users, with only top tier users really requiring Wifi 6 at the moment.

Bluetooth is included, however it is Bluetooth 4 which is the previous generation. This won't stop most users, but ensure that anything you're planning on using is Bluetooth 4 compatible - which is should be.

Ports & Peripherals

When it comes to ports, it's offered with 2 x USB Type-A (USB 3.1 / USB 3.2 Gen 1) ports. 2 Type-A ports is usually enough for regular laptop users, giving you enough freedom for the peripherals you need.

There's an option of using the Type-C USB ports, with 2 x USB 3.1 / USB 3.2 Gen 1 ports being offered too, allowing both the use of almost any current peripheral, but also adaptors & dongles allowing use of additional ports for the laptop.

Don't fret about your wired headphones though, the 3.5mm headphone jack will let you plug right in.

The Asus Chromebook C523NA offers a solid aluminum chassis and 1080p touch screen for under $400, but it comes up short on battery life.

Asus Chromebook C523NA-DH02 Review
pcverge.com
  • - 3.8
The Asus Chromebook C523NA proves that it’s possible to make a quality 15-inch laptop with a luxury feel for a reasonable amount of money. The swift Chrome OS helps, in that a relatively low-end CPU manages to provide outstanding performance for most daily productivity tasks, and Chromebooks are gaining a real boost in value with the continuing addition of millions of Android apps. For its price, the Asus C523NA-DH02 offers a great experience for anyone who can live within the general constraints of Chrome OS.

While looking for a laptop under the ₹30,000 price bracket, you’d find most current options are running on entry-level hardware only. So, it’s a given that you must temper your expectations. And while narrowing down your choices, you would be left with a versatile but demanding Windows operating system and a Chromebook which is neither of those two things.

Asus Chromebook C523NA Review

  • - 4.6
The 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.

Just What the Budget PC market Needed

  • - 3.9
Seeing a large 15.6-inch laptop from afar does give an impression it would be mighty powerful, probably more power than you need. What if you just needed a big screen to watch content, read and type essays for classes, sans all that horsepower delivered by the expensive Intel and AMD CPUs with the diversities and complexities of Windows 10. What if, you just needed an Android interface, but on a big screen? Well, enter the Asus Chromebook 15 C523, that offers exactly that.
