While there’s no shortage of laptop deals from the most popular retailers, some of these offers might still be too expensive for those who are on a tight budget. If you’re willing to try a new kind of laptop, you should check out Chromebook deals, such as Amazon’s offer for the HP Chromebook Series 14 that slashes $49 off the device’s price to bring it down to $211 from its original price of $260.
The HP Chromebook Series 14 is equipped with the Intel Celeron N4000, 4GB of RAM, and 32GB eMMC for storage. Boosting the capabilities of these specifications is Google’s Chrome OS platform, which powers Chromebooks. Chrome OS is basically the Chrome browser that’s modified to serve as an operating system that focuses on online apps and utilizes cloud storage. This dependency on the internet means that Chromebooks have low overhead for quick startup and snappy performance, while also opening up the device to Android apps from the Google Play Store.
This HP Chromebook features a 14-inch HD display and stereo speakers tuned by experts from Bang & Olufsen, for high-quality video and audio for both work and play, and a backlit keyboard with a multi-touch touchpad that supports four-finger gestures, for comfortable and convenient usage. For those who are always on the go, HP promises 13.5 hours of battery life on mixed usage for the Chromebook, with the HP Fast Charge feature that brings the battery up to 50% from zero in just 45 minutes. For even more impressive portability, the HP Chromebook Series 14 weighs in at just over 3 pounds, so it wouldn’t be a burden if you’re constantly on the move.
Switching from traditional laptops to Chromebooks might take a bit of an adjustment, but that’s a minor setback compared to their snappy performance and lower prices. The HP Chromebook Series 14 already packs great value at its original price of $260, but Amazon is offering an even better deal with a discount that slashes $49 off, lowering its price to an even more affordable $211. If you’re already sold on the 14-inch Chromebook, you should click on the Buy Now button as soon as you can, while the deal is still available.
