ASUS Chromebook C403 combines big-screen productivity with classroom-ready toughness. Its large 14-inch display and ergonomic keyboard let you get things done in total comfort, and its rugged construction makes it a laptop you can rely on, whether you’re using it for school, or sharing screens with teachers or family. It’s packed with ruggedised features such as the all-round rubber bumper, spill-resistant keyboard and ultratough hinge. With its easy-to-service modular design and long-lasting battery, ASUS Chromebook C403 is the smartest choice for learning!
ASUS Chromebook C403 is built to withstand knocks, bumps, drops and spills without damage. All four exterior edges and corners are protected by a tough rubber bumper, which reduces the impact of physical shocks to ensure critical components are always safe and sound. Whether you’re in the classroom or the living room, ASUS Chromebook C403 is ready for the tough life.
Accidents happen, and ASUS Chromebook C403 is ready for them: its spill-resistant keyboard can cope with liquid spills of up to 66cc without harm, so minor splashes on the desk or dinner table can be easily drained, cleaned, and dried.
Rubber safety grip
Drops when carrying are a common laptop problem, whether it’s students moving between classes or when you’re working on the go. A rubber bar on the base not only provides a sturdy support for ASUS Chromebook C403, but it also makes it easier to grip when carrying — a thoughtful design detail that reduces the risk of drops.
To make the keyboard more durable — and resistant to small exploring fingers! — the gap between the edges of the keycaps and the keyboard surround is reduced to prevent anyone from prying the keys out.
Durable 3D-textured finish
ASUS Chromebook C403 keeps its smart looks for longer, with a tough micro-dimpled finish that means no more worries about minor scratches or fingerprints!
Ready for action
To protect your investment, ASUS Chromebook C403 is built to surpass demanding military-grade MIL-STD-810G durability standards, and it’s also torture-tested to pass stringent ASUS quality tests. It can withstand occasional drops of up to 120cm — more than standard desk height — and the hinge and I/O ports are fully tested to endure the stresses and strains of everyday use.

Designed for comfort
ASUS Chromebook C403 is not only rugged, but it’s designed for comfort. The large 14-inch display gives you a bigger workspace for easier creativity and effortless productivity. Its anti-glare screen reduces unwanted reflections, too, for clearer viewing in bright light. The long key travel on the keyboard — 2mm as opposed to the 1.5mm of some rivals — gives much better tactile feedback, for a more responsive and comfortable desktop-like typing experience. Working on the ASUS Chromebook C403 is a pleasure, not a chore.
Power through your day
Offering up to 11 hours* battery life on a single charge, ASUS Chromebook C403 gives you a full working day of productivity or study, banishing battery anxiety!
