Here are the best Chromebook deals available in February 2019

In the world of laptop computers, it’s been Windows versus MacOS for a long, long time – but Google’s Linux-based Chrome OS has been gaining ground in recent years, shaking up the market with big brands like Samsung, Lenovo, HP, Google, and Acer now offering impressive (not to mention wallet-friendly) Chromebooks. These efficient laptops have grown quite popular lately, too, thanks to their intuitive software and solid price-to-performance ratio, although the best ones will still set you back a few hundred dollars. Though there are still discounts on the Pixelbook if you know where to look.

If you’re looking for something a bit cheaper, though, we’ve got you covered: Whether you need a compact laptop to enjoy some entertainment while you’re on the go, or you just want a no-nonsense machine for school or work, we’ve smoked out the best cheap Chromebook deals available right now. With everything from full-sized Chromebooks to 2-in-1 hybrids, our picks offer something for just about everyone:

Samsung Chromebook 3 — $170

best cheap Chromebook deals Samsung Chromebook 3

Samsung is putting out some of the best Chromebooks on the market today, but their best offerings naturally don’t come cheap. For a super-affordable alternative to laptops like the Samsung Chromebook Pro, consider Samsung’s Chromebook 3. This 11.6-inch computer runs on a dual-core Intel N3060 and 2GB of RAM – good enough for basic work tasks like web browsing and word processing – with 16GB of flash storage for files and apps (since Chrome OS is largely cloud-based, you don’t need too much space to handle your basic needs).

The Samsung Chromebook 3 won’t replace your full-sized Windows, Mac, or Chrome OS laptops, but at a low $170 from Samsung, the Samsung Chromebook 3 might just be the cheapest name-brand Chrome OS computer you’re going to find.

Lenovo Chromebook C330 — $249

best laptop deals Lenovo C330 Chromebook

Hybrid laptops are a big thing now, and the Chromebook market has also seen its fair share of these handy 2-in-1 convertible computers. Lenovo’s Chromebook C330 is one of the most affordable 2-in-1 laptops out there. It’s got solid enough specs for the price, too, with a 2.1 GHz CPU, 4GB of RAM, and a boosted 64GB of flash storage.

The 360-degree hinge on the 11.6-inch HD touch display works so that you can fold it completely flat, letting you use this compact Chrome OS laptop as a tablet when you need to – or you can just use the keyboard as a built-in stand for enjoying some entertainment on the go. A $51 discount on Amazon and Best Buy knocks the Lenovo Chromebook C330 down to a super-affordable $249.

HP Chromebook 14 — $232

best cheap Chromebook deals HP Chromebook 14

Laptops with 14-inch displays like the Chromebook 14 from HP represent a nice middle-of-the-road option between compact 11- and 12-inch laptops and full-sized ones, and the HP Chromebook’s 14-inch HD display even doubles as a touch-screen. Under the hood, the Chromebook 14 runs on an Intel N3350 2.4 GHz CPU and 4GB of RAM, while 32GB of flash storage provides enough space for your basic work files and regular-use apps.

At 0.7 inches thin when closed, this 14-inch laptop hits a nice sweet spot in size for anyone looking for an on-the-go Chromebook that’s not too big or too small. The HP Chromebook 14 comes in at just $232 on Amazon, making this perhaps the best touchscreen Chromebook deal on our roundup for the price.

Acer Chromebook 15 Touch (Refurbished) — $240

best cheap Chromebooks - Acer Chromebook 15

Compact laptops like the Samsung Chromebook 3 are handy for travel, but for hours of regular use and work, a full-sized computer like Acer’s excellent Chromebook 15 might be a better option. This Chrome OS laptop features an Intel N4200 CPU, 4GB of DDR4 RAM, and 32GB of storage for handling basic tasks, but the highlight of this model is its 15.6-inch HD touch display which gives you a lot more screen real estate to work with.

It’s still fairly sleek and lightweight, though, and its internal battery provides up to 12 hours of juice, giving you more than enough for a day’s worth of work and entertainment. The Acer Chromebook 15 rings in at $240 from Newegg.

Samsung Chromebook Pro — $499

best cheap Chromebook deals Samsung Chromebook Pro

Although our roundup contains a number of cheap Chromebooks in the sub-$400 range, we’ve included one upgrade pick for those interested in something a little beefier. Samsung’s Chromebook Pro is one of our favorites owing to its compact yet sturdy build, great 2-in-1 hybrid design, a vibrant 12.3-inch touch display boasting an HD resolution of 2,400 x 1,600, and snappy performance with wide support for Chrome OS apps.

The Samsung Chromebook Pro isn’t quite as affordable as the other cheap Chromebooks on our list, but at $499 from Best Buy after a $50 savings, it’s still well within the “budget laptop” price bracket and is one of the best Chrome OS laptops you can buy.

Acer Chromebook Spin 13 — $770

cheap chromebook deals acer spin

If you’re looking for a Chromebook with a little extra horsepower but don’t want to go all in with a Google Pixelbook or Google Pixel Slate, the Acer Spin 13 is a pretty good alternative. With an 8th-gen Intel Core i5 CPU, 8 GB of RAM, and 128GB of storage, the Acer Chromebook Spin 13 has many similar specs to the Google Pixelbook. As a convertible 2-in-1, it comes with a 10-point multi-touch screen so you can use it on the go or at work. It also boasts a solid 10-hour battery life, so you won’t need to hang out near an outlet during continued use.

This Acer Chromebook is a little bit more on the expensive side, but with some impressive features, you get what you pay for. Normally priced at $900, you can pick it up for just $770 at Walmart.

Google Pixelbook — $850

best cheap Chromebooks - Google Pixelbook

Given that Google pioneered the Chrome operating system, it’s only fitting that the company’s own Chromebook is one of the best that money can buy, and we’ve saved the best for last. The Google Pixelbook has the look and feel of a high-end Chrome OS laptop with a super-slim and attractive design, great build quality, a beautiful 1600p touch display, and fast performance under daily workloads.

The touchscreen can fold flat for tablet-like use (or can stand up in tent mode if you just want to watch some entertainment), and the Pixelbook has better specs than most Chromebooks with its 7th-gen i5 CPU, 8GB of RAM, and 128GB of storage. All of these features would normally run you $999, but you can score this Chrome laptop for $850 from Amazon right now and save $149.
