Asus Chromebook CX1101 was launched in India on Monday, December 13th, 2021. The CX1101 joins the Chromebook Flip C214, Chromebook C223, Chromebook C423, and Chromebook C523 models launched earlier in the year, giving buyers yet another affordable but seemingly built-to-last Chrome OS-based entry-level laptop for education, schools and more. It’s part of Asus’ broad(er) strategy to democratise India’s education space.
The Chromebook CX1101 starts at just under Rs 20,000 which is easily its biggest USP. Despite its low price, this laptop packs a lot of good specs including USB Type-C fast charging and a durable design—features that are hard to find in budget laptops from the Windows spectrum. Even some of the mid-range Windows laptops fail to do this at times.
