The lightweight weight and the streamlined design of the CTL J41 Chromebook make it best-suited for students and those on-the-go, who need a laptop that will balance out between versatility and portability. The Intel processor is also a nice touch, as it is fast and power-efficient for a laptop in this price range.

The two USB Type-C ports, 2 USB 3.0 ports, and a micro-SD slot make it easy to keep up with the latest tech and manage your storage needs. In terms of connectivity, it comes with 802.11a/b/g/n/ac WiFi, Bluetooth 4.0, and dual-band (2.4 GHz + 5 GHz) .

Basic Performance

The key is the Intel processor, and its fantastic for basic tasks such as web browsing, word processing, and video watching. Browsing using Google Chrome was incredibly fast with no lag or popup. Multitask with ease by opening several windows and tabs at the same time.

It's also great for watching videos, and has a high-quality 1366×768 monitor with VGA port and HDMI port.

Touchpad

The left click isn't very responsive, and is kind of annoying compared to every other laptop in this price range. You also have to press the touchpad button to activate it. The key is worn out, and while it isn't a huge deal you would expect a laptop in this price range to have a responsive touchpad.

Keyboard

The keyboard is not great, but is perfectly fine for web browsing and for typing out short emails. The keys feel a bit flimsy and don't offer enough travel, but type decently without annoying clicking. The white light under the space bar makes it easier to see what the space bar is doing.

Battery Life

This Chromebook comes with an 11.6-inch 1366×768 resolution monitor, Intel Celeron N3350 processor, 4 GB of RAM, and 32 GB of storage.
