Love ’em or hate ’em, Chromebooks have definitely carved out their own space in the laptop and 2-in-1 market. They’re fast, they’re responsive, they feature built-in security, and — contrary to popular belief — you don’t need an active internet connection to use them. If you’re looking to upgrade to a new computer for work, school, or browsing, there are a ton of Chromebook deals live you might want to check out.
Best Buy is also hosting a crazy deal that takes $200 off an HP 2-in-1 14-inch Chromebook and nets you a free SteelSeries Stratus Duo controller for gaming. You can take home both for $429 plus free shipping or in-store pickup. The free controller is a GeForce Now, and the offer includes a bevy of Chromebooks, not just the HP model. Chromebooks can stream games through services like GeForce Now, Stadia, and beyond. They can also play a ton of Android games and allow you to download and use Android apps and games from the Play Store.
The HP 2-in-1 14-inch Chromebook (14C-CA0053DX) features a 1920 x 1080 IPS display with a WLED backlight. It’s powered by a 10th-generation Intel Core i3-10110U mobile processor and 8GB of RAM, and it has 64GB of eMMC flash memory for storage. The main hinge and display leverage a 360-degree flip-and-fold design, so you can swap the configuration to a standard laptop or tablet, or prop it up for presentations.
A built-in HD webcam rests within the top bezel, but it also includes a privacy switch if you want to disable it when you’re not on a video call. Intel UHD Graphics utilize shared memory for visual applications. Wi-Fi 6 802.11 ax and Bluetooth round out the wireless connectivity. Plus, the keyboard is backlit, and there’s a fingerprint reader on board.
Best Buy is offering the HP 2-in-1 14-inch Chromebook for $429, which is $200 off the $629 MSRP. To sweeten the deal, you’ll get a free SteelSeries controller, which is a $60 value.
