OUR TOP PICKS:
We’ve already told you about the best laptops on sale during Prime Day in general, but we wanted to specifically show the Chromebook crowd some love. A lot of them are on sale for the two-day shopping event, and we think they’re definitely worth checking out if you’re in the market for a new device. With the exception of the Google Pixelbook Go, all of them are super affordable and great for getting basic tasks done.
Here are our top picks for the best Chromebook deals during Prime Day, and we’ll be sure to update this article as more of them go on sale (we suspect that they will).
This lightweight Chromebook laptop has an impressive 12 hours of battery life on a full charge, and can last up to two hours on a 20-minute charge for when you’re in a pinch. You’ll be able to expertly edit documents, photos, and browse the web on the Pixelbook Go’s crystal clear HD touchscreen, and you can take it literally anywhere — it has an only 13-inch body, and barely weighs two pounds.
The Acer Chromebook 715 is one of our favorite budget laptops on sale at the moment. It’s sleek, elegant, durable, and is a great pick for doing basic tasks like web browsing, streaming, editing files, and more. For such a cheap laptop, it has a really nice battery life at 12 hours, plus a solid 1080p display.
If you want a budget Chromebook that’s also a 2-in-1, here’s your best bet. The Lenovo Chromebook Flex is less than $200 during Prime Day, and gets you an easily convertible laptop-tablet combo that also exhibits that great Lenovo quality we’ve come to expect.
This 11-inch Samsung Chromebook is a speedy and compact laptop that covers all the bases needed for basic daily use. Like the Pixelbook, it’s great for taking on the go, plus it won’t cost you a lot. So, that’s nice.
We love a good bundle deal — this Acer Chromebook is a solid laptop like the others above, but also comes paired with a zip-close protective sleeve for $70.50 off the normal price. If you plan on traveling with your laptop, you’re going to need a case, so why not make it this one?
