The Asus L210MA-DB01 is a low-cost Chromebook with a complete version of Windows 10 (S Mode) for the same price as a simple Chrome OS device. This unique entry-level notebook for learners and students exemplifies why Asus is one of the fastest-growing laptop manufacturers across all categories.
Starting with the lightweight body shell, the wonderful 10+ hour life, and the decent 11-inch screen, it’s a clever mix of characteristics. Add in a low profile and a brilliantly built 180° lay-flat hinge, which is uncommon in entry-level laptops, and you’ve got a tremendous basic PC for a student to use at home and school or a college student studying and writing.

The Asus L210MA offers more features and performance than comparable laptops for college students and home users. It has the best battery life in its class, is highly portable, has a classic look, and has an excellent connection for all of your devices.
However, the poor resolution of the screen and the mediocre keypad prevent it from receiving our Editors’ choice award for budget college laptops. Acer Aspire 5 or Lenovo IdeaPad 3 are superior performers and feature larger displays for a few dollars extra.
If you’re on a limited budget and only require an 11-inch laptop, the Asus L210MA-DB01 has all the functionality you’ll need for most college tasks.
