The $200 ASUS Laptop L210 Review - The Best Laptop for Kids | One PC Panda

If you have children, then you probably have been thinking about buying them their first laptop so they can have some fun playing and learning at the same time. What you’ll quickly discover, however, is that there are many different laptops on the market, and finding the right one isn’t always easy. That’s why you should consider buying your kids an ASUS L120 Laptop, which has plenty of great features that will keep your kids entertained while teaching them valuable lessons. Here are just a few of the reasons why this laptop could be right for your kids.

Why choose this laptop

ASUS laptop L210 is a budget laptop ($200) that offers excellent performance, but what makes it so good? Well, it's ultra-thin at 2.1 cm with an elegant design and weighs 2.31lbs only. It also comes with a webcam, which many low-cost laptops don't offer.

It is made of durable and sturdy plastic. With its sleek design - there isn't a fear that the laptop will break or even bend at all; even when tossed around on accident. It's been built with care so even those pesky little fingers won't be able to do any harm to the device. For those parents looking for an affordable laptop - this one seems like it would suit their needs just fine.

Processor and RAM

This unit features an Intel Celeron N4020 processor and 4GB RAM, so it won’t break any speed records, but then again that isn’t what it was designed to do.


The L210 laptop comes with a 64GB eMMC storage drive but also an empty slot for adding a second NVME M.2 SSD (up to 500GB).


The ASUS L120 display is an 11.6-inch, non-touch display running at 1366x768 (HD), 16:9. It has a built-in Intel UHD Graphics 600 graphic card with a TN panel that actually displays well.

Keyboard and Trackpad

The L210 has a TKL keyboard because it's an 11-inch laptop. This means it lacks keys for some of the most commonly used numbers on a computer (1 through 0). To compensate for this, ASUS created the NumperPad - embedded in the trackpad so it can be turned on or off at any time - as well as recognizing when you pressed too fast to type out one of those letters.

It was frustrating at first since I kept turning it on or off unintentionally but that frustration wore away quickly enough and now I've gotten quite good at using my NumperPad.

I was a little disappointed that it doesn't have a backlit keyboard.

Ports and Slots

A power slot. One Micro-SD card slot. A USB Type-C port for data devices. HDMI 1.4, which can run a 4K video at 30 fps, 1440p, and 1080p at 60 fps if you want to connect to an external monitor. There is a USB 3.0 slot and a 2.0 slot along with a headphone jack.

Battery Life

ASUS has claimed that their new L120 laptop can last up to 12 hours on one charge! I've been using it for a few days now and the battery lasts about 10 hours with some simple settings - just basic word processing, emails, etc. If you use really intense processor-taxing apps or games - well then you're going to see your battery life diminish pretty quickly.

Would you recommend the ASUS L120 for gaming?

Well, yes and no. Yes! You can game on older games like Half-Life and do it at low settings too, but you cannot play new games such as League of Legends and Dota 2 that require stronger processing power which this particular model doesn't have - so it would be pointless to even consider using it for such a task.


 I am going to recommend the Asus L120 because it's perfect for your child. If you are looking for something safe and easy, it does all basic tasks without much issue. This device lasts a long time on one charge, has a lightweight design, a beautiful display, and feels durable but still manages to keep costs low.
