Cheap ASUS Laptop under $200 E200HA-UB02-GD Review

For years, laptop companies have been focused on closing the power gap between laptop and desktop computers. But when Chromebooks came out offering portability and affordability at the sacrifice of power, a new corner of the market opened.

Since then, there has been a fever among computer brands to offer a minimalist laptop under $200, and this Asus laptop is the best one on the market. If you’re looking for a mini laptop running on Windows 10, keep reading because this might be the exact machine you’re looking for.


cheap-asus-laptop-e200ha-ub02-gd-reviewThe first thing you’ll notice about this Asus laptop is that it’s very easy on the eyes. Asus has always done a great job of making laptops that look great, which is important considering how much time we spend with our computers. It’s great to see that Asus is not only offering a budget line of laptops, yet still making it look like a high class machine.

This is a mini laptop, so it comes with a mini keyboard. That means you don’t get the number pad on the right like full size keyboards. Your hands might also feel somewhat claustrophobic when you first start typing on it.

Don’t worry about it. You adjust to the small size easily within a couple days, and this is coming from personal experience. After a while, I didn’t even notice the difference when typing on my mini laptop.

Despite its small size, the keyboard is highly responsive and satisfying to use. Furthermore, the touch pad is responsive as well and has solid multi-touch functionality.

All in all, the Asus E200HA-UB02-GD is an 11 inch laptop that’s easy both on the eyes and on the wallet.

This Asus laptop comes with an Intel Quad-Core Atom Z8350 1.44 GHz processor and 4GB of RAM. You can turbo charge the processor up to 1.92 GHz, but even then that’s not any sort of impressive power.

This is a $200 laptop that we’re talking about here, so let’s set realistic expectations. This is not a high end laptop that you can use for graphic design or modern games, though you may be able to run older games which require fewer resources. Instead, this is a super cheap laptop that lets you easily do basic computing tasks on the go.

And with that goal in mind, the Asus E200HA-UB02-GD really soars. Word processor applications run as responsive as they do on my desktop computer. Internet browsers also respond very well, though they start to bog down if you load up too many tabs. Beware of that.

Overall, this is a minimal laptop, but it’s a minimal laptop with very strong performance.

The Asus E200HA-UB02-GD is tiny. Its screen size is 11.6 inches, which is fine when you’re up close but won’t do you much good at a distance. It’s only just above 2 lbs. and, when closed, is only 0.7 inches thick at its thickest point.

This is a huge selling point for me in the budget laptop market. This is a laptop for getting work done, which means I’ll often be using it on the go. It’s small size means it’s a breeze to pack up and take with me. I don’t even notice its weight when I’m biking with it in my bag.

Battery life

Battery life is another category that makes or breaks budget laptops, and this Asus laptop provides more than enough battery life to keep me happy.

It advertises 12 hours of life on one charge, which unfortunately doesn’t seem to be true in practice. However, many reports put the battery life at about 10 hours while still being used often. If my laptop shuts down after 10 hours of continuous use without charging even for a second, that’s fine by me. That’s more than enough time than I’d ever need. Top battery life laptop

Note that gaming will drain the battery much faster, but it’s doubtful that this is a major concern if you’re looking for a mini laptop like this. You’ll still be fine running multiple movies on a single charge, and you could probably run music all day if you turn the screen off as often as you can.
