    Affordable and versatile

    I have to start off my review by pointing out that this Chromebook convertible costs less than the cheapest iPad, and it includes the keyboard case and stylus. That's kind of insane. In some ways, that might be all you need to know about the value provided by Asus here, as the iPad is probably the most obvious competitor. I've had iPads since they launched and remain a fan of those devices, but even the base model is objectively way way overpriced compared to this Chromebook as a productivity device. (To say nothing of the iPad Pros!) And especially so if you are a heavy Gmail, Google Docs, Sheets, Calendar, etc. user, as those apps have always been limited on the iPad and don't work great on mobile Safari. You can get a lot of work done on this little 2 in 1. Full stop. As for the hardware, you can look at my photos and get a sense of the size. It's a little narrower than an iPad Pro and a good bit thicker. The bezels around the screen are beefy and overall it's just never going to be confused for a product from Apple, Microsoft or Google. That said, it's still so compact! It's hard to believe how close it is to a tiny laptop at this size and yet that's exactly what it's like to use - a small 11 inch laptop. Which is cool and convenient! It feels good to hold, use, and carry. It's got some weight, but is by no means heavy. You can throw it in your bag and it won't take up much room at all. Or it'd be incredibly easy to just carry into an office meeting, no bag necessary. Beefy bezels aside, the display is really pretty darn good. It's very bright and text is crips. YouTube will play 4k and 60fps videos without much difficulty if you're on good wifi. (At full screen I noticed a little choppiness, but given the size of this screen there's really very little benefit in watching 4k content vs. 1080p which plays nice and smoothly). The touchscreen is very responsive, and scrolling etc. are very smooth. Especially for browsing the web - it just handles Chrome really well, as to be expected. No lag in changing screen orientation when in table mode. The speakers won't wow you but get pretty loud considering the size (and cost). And there's a headphone jack or bluetooth if you want headphones or external speakers. There's a nifty little silo that houses a stylus, which you can pop in and out when you need to sign something. The stylus itself feels pretty good and works well enough. If you're really looking at this device as the thing to make digital handwritten notes on, then I'd highly advise trying it in a store before buying. It's plastic on glass, so it's never going to feel quite like writing on paper. The keyboard attaches and detaches very easily. What's interesting is that the kickstand mechanism on this device is actually a back cover that connects to the tablet magnetically and is completely separate from the keyboard itself. You can take it off if you want for some reason, which is kind of cool and leaves the possibility of a future better option from Asus or 3rd party. The whole set up is reminiscent of the Microsoft Surface, though the last time I used one of those it had a fabric-like keyboard whereas this one feels a bit more plasticy and hard. The keys themselves have great travel, but are a little slick to the touch for my tastes. Still, it is really quite easy and comfortable to write on and I've had no issues using it for long stretches of time. Trackpad works as expected and has been fine. And again, I can't stress enough how nice it is that this keyboard is included!! I worry a little about how dirty it's going to get over time given the light color, but we'll have to see on that front. A darker option would be nice... but no backlight, folks. My guess is that's why they went with this color. Backlit keys would be so nice to have here, but I'm guessing this is one area where they made a cost decision to keep the price low. Chrome OS is nice and snappy. I'm not terribly familiar with this processor, but so far so good. No lagginess of issues getting things to load. Having the option for touch is so convenient on a device like this. Sometimes you just want to scroll with your finger, even when the keyboard is connected. This is my first time using a tablet though with Chrome OS and that experience leaves a little to be desired. When you detach the keyboard, the device automatically goes into tablet mode.
