    "HP Pavilion 15-cc020nr is just not a good laptop. It is already outdated and for $700 you could get far more for your money. I couldn't in good conscience recommend this too anyone."

    "This laptop is very inexpensive, though also quite old, so I imagine this would not be the best choice for a student. I would rather see highly rated modern laptop options instead of this older model."

    "Picked this up for school work, the price was pretty high honestly, I think it's more for gaming and less for study. I don't really understand all the specs but I do at least know it works for what I need it to do. Hopefully the price being this steep means it'll last me a few years. Other than that it's compact and light, easy to take to class."

    "I love this Chromebook. It combines the best features of a tablet with the typing ease of a full keyboard. Great battery life, and all the functionality I need. And for kicking back, watching a movie in "tent" mode is an unexpected bonus...most excellent! "

    "My daughter needed a laptop to do her school work. I thought about getting the expensive and powerful MacBook Pro and the Air versions of it, but was surprised when she told me she wanted an ASUS Chromebook. Her friends had apparently had this nice little laptop and so she was following their trend. No problems here. The ASUS Chromebook C202SA was the laptop she wanted and the one I got for her. It's pretty inexpensive and for what you get I think it's a pretty good package. This laptop is nice and compact. Ultra light in my opinion too which makes it suitable for her to carry to school. It comes with an Intel Celeron but for what she's using it for it does an admiral job. I was thinking of getting one for myself too since my old Dell is on it's last legs."

    "This laptop was fine but more than a bit slow until I added more ram. I would definitely rate this one higher if it had a decent amount of ram for the price but honestly 4GB is nowhere near enough nowadays. Otherwise it's great, the screen is wonderful and it's well built."
