If you’ve been waiting on a killer Chromebook deal, now’s the time to pull the trigger. Best Buy is offering $250 off the 15-inch Chromebook deals we’ve seen in quite some time. But you’ll have to hurry, as this deal is valid for today only., bringing its price down to $350. That’s over 40% off the $600 starting price, making it one of the best
What do you get with the catchily named 15-DE0523DX? Internally, there is a quad-core eighth-generation Intel Core i5-8250U with a base speed of 1.6GHz and Turbo Boost of 3.4GHz, 8GB of memory, and 128GB of eMMC storage.
It’s all wrapped up in a Ceramic White chassis with a 15.6-inch 1080p touch display. It weighs four pounds — less than the 4.3-pound Acer Chromebook 15 — and has a combined metal and plastic construction. As for ports, HP’s offering has two USB-C ports, one USB-A port, a microSD card reader, and a 3.5mm headphone jack.
We found the display to be plenty bright and vibrant in our review, and the fact that HP has included touch capabilities is a welcome boost. Compared to other affordable Chromebooks like the HP Chromebook 14 and the aforementioned Acer Chromebook 15, we found HP’s screen to be superior — it was a real pleasure to use.
We were also impressed with the device’s long-lasting battery life, strong Chrome OS performance, and good build quality for the price. We reviewed the Intel Core i3 model with 4GB of memory, which at the time cost $469 — getting an i5 processor and 8GB of RAM for over $100 less shows just how good today’s deal is. It means you can snag a much more powerful Chromebook than you’d normally expect to get at this price, making this offer a real corker.
