ASUS N2830 Overview

  • 1Description

The black C300MA-DB01 13.3" Chromebook Computer from ASUS is designed for a Web-optimized experience. With a user-friendly interface, the ASUS Chromebook offers a unique computing experience enhanced by the Internet.

This ASUS Chromebook has a 13.3" matte display. The screen has a 16:9 aspect ratio and an HD 1366 x 768 native resolution, which is powered by Intel HD graphics. Its resolution can support native 720p HD video playback without upscaling or letterboxing. Additionally, the system's graphics may be output to an external display using the integrated HDMI port.

The system is powered by a 2.16 GHz Intel Bay Trail-M Celeron N2830 Dual-Core processor, which features a burst speed of up to 2.41 GHz. It also has 2GB of DDR3L RAM, 16GB of eMMC storage, 802.11a/b/g/n Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 4.0, an integrated front-facing webcam, and an integrated digital microphone. There are also speakers and a multi-format media card reader for Secure Digital (SD) cards. Additional compatible peripherals, such as extra storage, optical drives, mice, and more may be connected using the USB 3.0 port and the USB 2.0 port. Headphones, external speakers, or a mic may also be connected using the 3.5mm headphone-out/audio-in combo jack.

Google Chrome OS is a Linux-based operating system designed by Google to work exclusively with web applications. This ASUS Chromebook combines the aspects of a pure cloud client with the hardware of a traditional portable computer, which puts it in its very own class of netbook and notebook computers.

Included with this Chromebook is a 33W AC adapter. Its built-in 3-cell 48Wh Lithium-ion Prismatic battery will last for up to 10 hours before recharging is required. It operates on 100-240VAC and 50/60 Hz.

Please note that in order to take full advantage of Chrome OS, you will need to be connected to the Internet.

Chrome OS
Using Linux as a base, Google designed Chrome OS to work exclusively with web applications. The user interface takes a minimalist approach, which greatly resembles the Google Chrome web browser. Chrome OS was built for people who spend a majority, if not all, of their time on the computer connected to the Internet. The only application that comes installed on Chrome OS is a special Google Chrome web browser with an integrated media player and file manager. All other applications are accessed by adding apps from the Google Chrome Web Store. Since Chrome OS relies entirely on Google's web apps and access to Google's services, it is highly recommended that you connect to the Internet to optimize your Chrome OS experience
13.3" Matte HD Display
The C300MA features a 13.3" widescreen display. The screen features a 16:9 aspect ratio and a 1366 x 768 native resolution, powered by integrated Intel HD Graphics. The screen also has a matte finish for reduced glare, and native support for 720p HD video playback. An HDMI port allows you to output high-definition video to a larger external display, such as an HDTV
Dual-Core Intel Bay Trail-M Celeron Performance
The ASUS C300MA houses an Intel Bay Trail-M Celeron N2830 processor. Its dual cores can reach a stock speed of 2.16 GHz. The processor can also be overclocked up to 2.41 GHz when needed. It has a dedicated 1MB L2 cache, 4GB of DDR3L RAM, and integrated Intel HD Graphics for added performance
Compact Design
Measuring 0.9" thin and weighing just 3.1 pounds, the C300MA features a black finish in a compact design
Cloud Connectivity
With built-in virus protection, the C300MA runs securely. It keeps your files safely backed up in the cloud, thanks to Chrome OS
Fast Boot Up and Resume Times
The C300MA boots up quickly as well as resumes instantly from where you left off, thanks to its 16GB of eMMC flash storage
USB 3.0
USB 3.0 can provide data transfer speeds of up to 5 Gbps, which is 10 times faster than USB 2.0. USB 3.0 is also backwards compatible with USB 2.0 as well so you can use your older USB-compatible devices

    ASUS N2830 Reviews

    C300MA-DB01 13.3" Chromebook Computer (Black) is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 23.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Future of laptops? I use this product so that my much more expensive macbook air can stay on my home desk. I use it at work in an automotive repair shop. I use it to play music outside during BBQs. I use it in my garage or around the house. I use it so that if it breaks or get dirty, I wouldn't mind. Pros: Nice form factor. Finish. Keyboard. Resolution. Ports. Amazing battery life. Fast charging. Lightweight. Good size. Cons: Fingerprint magnet. Hard to clean. Trackpad not great. Screen is a bit too washed. I don't like the Chrome logo on the lid.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from The best deal I bought this for my 9 years old girl, she loves it. I wanted to have her own device to attend the khan academy, practice scratch and view crash courses and other education materials from her school that are online. The computer is light weight and its really efficient on the overall performance, you can switch from one task to another and it wont slow, also you have the great benefit of google drive where you can work documents, spreadsheets or presentations, its not as profesional as microsoft suite but theyll get there and its free. For my girl it certainly has all that she needs. Maybe the only thing I miss is a dvd so she can also see her favorite movies but I didnt buy it as a media center rather as a study tool so its ok.Dont pay extra for branding, look at whats important and this one has it, its worth every penny. The battery is awesome.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Price, Great Chromebook This is my first Chromebook and I purchased primarily as a alternative to my tablet. It functions flawlessly and exactly what I wanted. Small, great battery, easy to use, no setup required, etc. The only real disappointment is that I am a heavy Dropbox user and it does not work well with any cloud storage other than Google Drive. I found an API but it is not great and does not allow me to save files. No big deal...this is mostly used for surfing the net, Casting to the Chromecast and email. Great unit. Super price and B&H services is simply fantastic!!
