Looking for a small, affordable, robust device primarily for web-based activities? The ASUS C201PA-DS01 11.6" Chromebook is a good choice. The screen is small, but easy to read and bright. There's a micro-HDMI video port that lets you display the video on a large screen, providing you have the cable.

The system is powered by a quad-core 1.8 GHz processor with integrated graphics. It also has 2GB of RAM (the smallest amount), and 16GB of onboard storage. This amount can be expanded by way of a micro-SD card slot. Other features include Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 4.0, an integrated front-facing camera, a built-in microphone and stereo speakers. There are two USB 2.0 ports, and a 3.5mm headphone-out/audio-in combo jack that can support either headphones or a microphone. You get a lot for your money with this computer.

The key feature and limitation is the operating system: Google Chrome OS, which is based on Linux. It was designed by Google to work exclusively with web applications. The only application that comes pre-installed is the Chrome operating system. You can add more apps from the Google Chrome Web Store, providing you have the storage. Good Wi-Fi is not optional to use this laptop. We found that this computer was ideal for use with MIT's Scratch. We purchased ours from
