Those in the market for a cheap Windows 8 laptop have another option on their plate, as today Asus announced that its Asus X200CA notebook is now available in the US.
The 2.7-pound notebook starts at $330, and comes with an 11.6-inch, 1366×768 touchscreen display. Internally, it starts with a dual-core 1.5 GHz Intel Celeron 1007U processor, integrated HD graphics, 2GB of DDR3 RAM, a 3300 mAh battery rated at 5 hours of juice, and a 320GB hard drive. 3GB of Asus’s cloud storage is also thrown in, and Asus says the device can wake from sleep in two seconds.
Pricier configurations can get you up to a Core i3 processor, 4GB of RAM and a 1TB hard drive, but you know the drill here: this notebook’s most important spec is its MSRP, and buying a Windows 8 laptop for cheap still means making deep sacrifices on power.
We generally recommend ponying up a little more cash for your laptop, but if budget is your number one concern, you can find more details on the X200CA at the source link below.
