ASUS Chromebook C223

ASUS Chromebook C223

ASUS recently launched its latest Chromebook C223 which is an affordable, feature loaded and stylish laptop. It might be a good companion for students who want to study online, browse web and do more. We got this Chromebook for review so read this complete review if you are looking to buy a good laptop under budget. 

What’s inside the box? 

The box carries of course the ASUS Chromebook C223. Apart from it, we get a power cable, a 45W power adapter, and some documents (Quick start guide). There is nothing else inside the box. 

How is the design and built quality? 

To begin with design, we must accept that the ASUS Chromebook C223 is extremely lightweight. It weighs only 1 KG and it is compact as well so you will not face any difficulty while carrying this. The Chromebook has a very decent and eye soothing design. It has a plastic body which of decent quality. Moreover apart from these all in this category, you can’t expect premium built material. 

We tried to open the lid with one finger but we were little disappointed. We had to use both of our hands to open the lid. The laptop has 11.6 inch display to give you a good experience. However, the bezels around the display are little big for a laptop being launched in 2021. Due to these big bezels, the screen to body ratio is 74%. Just above the display, there is a 720P HD webcam for attending the video chats. Below the laptop, ASUS has given dual speakers that promise a good sound quality. 


ASUS Chromebook C223 features an 11.6 inch Anti-glare HD LED Backlit display with 1366 x 768 Pixels resolution. The display can’t be rotated 360* and it is a non-touchable display so you can’t use this laptop in a tablet mode. It has 200 nits brightness which justifies as per its price. The display is super bright and vibrant so the content over the screen looks pretty good. We played some 4K videos on this laptop to test the display quality and it was good. Also the stereo loudspeakers make the experience even better. However, watching the videos from side angles will not give you good experience. 

Keyboard and trackpad 

The Chromebook comes equipped with an edge-to-edge keyboard which gives you a hassle free typing experience. The keyboard is completely spill free and the keys are easy to press and help in fast typing as well. Along with the keyboard, you get a multi-touch trackpad which is very smooth. 


As far as features are concerned, ASUS Chromebook C223 comes packed with some great features that support basic day to day tasks. It comes with Intel Celeron N3350 Processor which is clocked at 2.4 GHz. Also, it has Intel HD Graphics 500 for a seamless computing. The Chromebook has 4GB LPDDR4 RAM and the internal storage is 32GB. But you can expand the storage up to 2TB through microSD card. It is indeed a great feature in this laptop as you feel bounded with limited storage space but with this feature, the expandable storage sets you free to download new apps, documents or any other files. 

The laptop packs a 38Wh high-quality Li-ion battery with 45W type-c fast charging. You can get up to 10hrs of battery life which is true as we tested it during our review period. The battery backup is really incredible and it provides you extended hours to finish off your work. The 720p HD webcam and stereo loudspeakers allow you to enjoy crystal clear video conferencing. It has dual band Wi-Fi 5 for ultra-fast connectivity. 

Refreshed OS 

The Chromebook runs over Chrome Operating System (OS) which gives a unique and immersive computing experience. Operating this Chromebook is almost similar to operate an android smartphone because of the features and operations. You can download android apps from Google Play Store as per your choice. You can operate the laptop with your voice through Google Voice Assistant feature. It is a much needed feature in today’s time. With Chromebook C223, you can have a different experience. 

Connectivity ports 

This Chromebook laptop has many connectivity features that allow you to connect other accessories. On the right side of the laptop, there is a USB 3.2 Gen 2 Type-c port which supports display port, power delivery, and data transfer. On the other side, there is a USB 3.2 Gen 2 Type-c port, MicroSD card slot (Expandable up to 2TB), 3.5mm headphone jack and a USB 3.2 Gen 1 Type-A port. 

Price and availability 

ASUS Chromebook C223 is a very affordable device aimed at those who want to buy a laptop under budget. This laptop is priced at Rs. 16,990 and it is available on Flipkart. 

DT Review 

ASUS Chromebook C223 is indeed a great device for budget buyers. This laptop is loaded with good features that include, high-performance processor, good storage, bright display, big battery backup and more. In addition, the inclusion of Chrome OS makes it unique and easy to use. The day to day work can be done easily on this laptop. If you are looking to buy a good laptop under 20K, then this could be a fine choice. If you go for a traditional laptop, then you will have to spend around 30-40K which is too high. The laptop worked extremely well during our review and it didn’t disappoint us on performance level.
