If you are currently in the market for Chromebooks for your school, Troxell recommends the ASUS C202. The reason? The ASUS C202 is ruggedized, it comes with a spill proof keyboard, the processor is fast, and it has an 11-hour battery that gets through the school day. Cost: $175 each. See ASUS C202 (PDF).
If you are starting to consider needs for an 11.6-inch screen, touch sensitive Chromebook in the 2017-18 school year, you will want to keep the new ASUS C213 in mind. The ASUS C213 is ruggedized (best in class military spec drop test), touch sensitive, has a 12-hour battery, has 4GB, and is outfitted with gorilla glass. It is so new that ASUS has not released the pricing yet. See ASUS C213 (PDF).
A few things you might like to know about ASUS as a product provider through Troxell:
- ASUS provides great service on broken or defective Chromebooks; they offer a 1-year warranty on all their Chromebooks. See ASUS service program (PDF).
- ASUS offers bulk pricing on all WELS orders no-matter the size of the purchase. (This is the only manufacturer that Troxell works with that is willing to partner with WELS at this level of commitment).
