The Asus X200CA is a portable notebook with a touchscreen display and Windows 8.1 software. There are several different versions with different processors, but the laptop normally sells for around $300 or less.

Neither version has a cutting-edge processor, but those are Chromebook-like prices for Windows notebooks with 4GB of RAM, 500GB of storage, touchscreens, and Windows.

I purchased a refurb Asus X200CA mentioned in an earlier Daily Deal and am having mixed feelings. while I like the unit itself, I’m disappointed that the formerly-routine process of creating restore disks – useful as a hedge against HD failure – is no longer routine. it seems the only option I have is to create a ‘recovery drive’ using a 16GB usb drive. Asus doesn’t provide disks (I’m still searching if there’s a purchase option) and it seems the only other option is to create a multi-GB restore image to be used in conjunction with a ‘rescue disk’
