In an early Prime Day 2020 deal, Amazon has discounted the HP Chromebook 11 by 11%, bringing it down to just $260 from its original $291 price tag. The offer makes HP Chromebook 11, which was already one of the cheapest Chromebooks on the market, even more affordable.

The HP Chromebook 11, as the name suggests, runs on Google’s Chrome OS operating system. This means it doesn’t need high-end hardware to perform well. It’s ideal for children that might need a quick and inexpensive way to browse the web for projects or assignments.

Despite the low cost, the HP Chromebook 11 offers all the essentials you need on a laptop. There’s an 11.6-inch HD screen, HD webcam, 4GB of RAM, a dual-core processor, and a long-lasting battery. Plus, it has 32GB of onboard storage that you can expand further via a MicroSD card.


The HP Chromebook 11 also has a surprisingly impressive selection of ports including two USB Type-A and two USB Type-C slots. Further, the HP Chromebook 11 comes fitted with a traditional keyboard and trackpad. Therefore, compared to an iPad, you won’t have to spend extra for accessories. In addition to the desktop-grade Google Chrome browser, the HP Chromebook 11 can run Android apps.

At $260, the HP Chromebook 11 is hard to beat and offers one of the most complete laptop experiences at the price. But if it doesn’t suit your preferences or you’re willing to spend a little more for better hardware, there are plenty of Prime Day Chromebook deals and Prime Day laptop deals available.

Chances are many of you will miss this deal, however, with the Black Friday being super close, there’s no need to worry as there will be plenty of Chromebook deals for you to leverage.

Why you should be doing all your holiday shopping right now
Person using a Ring doorbell.

If the recent shopping extravaganza that was Prime Day showed us anything, it’s that now is the time to take advantage of discounts on, well, everything. As we head toward the holidays we’re seeing phenomenal deals on all kinds of tech — from laptops, to 4K TVs to Nintendo Switches — as well as items for your kitchen, vacuums, Smart Home additions; really everything. And this year, it’s more important than ever to act quickly, to make sure you get your item delivered by the big day!

This is not a year like any other year. One thing we witnessed throughout Prime Day was longer shipping times, especially as the day wore on. The reasons are clear. The COVID-19 global pandemic has really gummed up the works, even for big retailers like Amazon and Best Buy. The fact is, the pandemic has caused, and continues to cause, a disruption in distribution. Things just take longer: Trucks need to be cleaned and disinfected; suppliers have to account for or replace affected staff; suppliers that were affected or eliminated have to be replaced. At the same time, demand has increased. People want items delivered; they don’t want to venture out to the stores. Which means the system has even more to deal with, using less resources.

Prime Day was disappointing this year. With less than impressive discounts on TVs, laptops, and Apple products, it was one of the worst Prime Days we've ever seen. And yet, according to Amazon, third-party sellers still brought in a record $3.5 billion from the shopping event.

Amazon has yet to disclose its overall earnings for Prime Day, choosing instead to focus on the success of the small businesses that sell products on the site. However, it is probably safe to assume that if third-party sellers had record numbers, the online retailer probably did pretty well.
