Save $50 on this Asus Chromebook with Delivery in Time for Christmas

The holidays are fast approaching, so if you’re not yet done with your gift shopping, you should get on it before the discounts are gone and stocks are depleted. If one of the items on your list is a budget laptop, you might want to take a look at the available Chromebook deals, including Best Buy’s $50 discount on this Asus Chromebook that lowers its price to $199 from $249, along with the promise that you’ll receive the laptop in time for Christmas.

The Asus Chromebook C423 features a 14-inch HD anti-glare display with 1366 x 768 resolution, encased in an aluminum-finished lid for a premium look and feel that makes it stand out. The laptop is equipped with an Intel Celeron N3350 processor with 4GB of RAM, which is more than enough for daily tasks such as working with documents and doing research online.

One of the main selling points of the Asus Chromebook C423 is its 180-degree hinge, allowing the laptop to be laid flat to easily share content with other people. Asus promises long-term durability for the hinge, so you don’t have to worry about breaking the Chromebook after just a few attempts at folding it out completely. Asus also claims up to 10 hours on a single charge for the laptop, which should be more than enough time for you to use it with confidence while on the go.

The storage of the Asus Chromebook C423 is just 32GB eMMC, as being a Chromebook, it utilizes cloud storage for your files. Chromebooks are powered by Chrome OS, which is basically the Google Chrome browser reworked into an operating system that heavily depends on web-based apps. This allows you to ditch traditional installed software so that the laptop starts up quickly with snappy performance.

The Asus C423 will not match up to high-end gaming machines, but if all you need is a laptop that can perform basic functions such as browsing the internet and joining online meetings, this Chromebook will get the job done. Best Buy is offering the Asus C423 for only $199, after a $50 discount to its original price of $249, but if you want to receive the Chromebook in time for Christmas as a gift for a loved one or for yourself, you shouldn’t hold back on clicking that Buy Now button.

There’s still time to save $1,600 on this 77-inch Samsung OLED TV
Samsung S95B OLED TV with bright image on-screen.

While it may look like most OLED TV Black Friday deals are over, there are still some amazing offers that you can still shop if you look hard enough. If you're willing to make an investment on a huge OLED TV, you should check out Best Buy's $1,600 discount for the 77-inch Samsung S89C 4K OLED TV, which slashes its price to $2,000 from $3,600. It's still not cheap, but the savings are among the biggest that you can get from this year's Black Friday deals. You shouldn't hesitate if you want to take advantage of the bargain though, because there's no telling if it will continue through Cyber Monday and beyond.

Why you should buy the 77-inch Samsung S89C 4K OLED TV
The Samsung S89C offers 4K Ultra HD resolution for sharp details and lifelike colors, and it's an OLED TV, which means it uses OLED pixels that produce their own light. When these pixels are shut off, they create superb black levels, which is one of the advantages of OLED TVs over QLED TVs, according to our OLED versus QLED comparison. Other reasons why you'd choose the Samsung S89C 4K OLED TV over a QLED TV include superior response time, wider viewing angles, less power consumption, and better eye comfort.

If you've always wanted to upgrade your home theater setup with a massive screen but you just haven't found the perfect offer yet from retailers' TV deals, you may want to take a look at this -- the 77-inch LG C3 Series OLED 4K TV, originally priced at $3,500, is on sale from LG with an $800 discount that pulls its price down to $2,700. It's still not cheap, but the investment will be worth it. The savings will only be available for a limited time though, so you shouldn't take too long to think about this -- proceed with the purchase as soon as possible.

You'll also never run out of things to watch because of LG's webOS platform, which will give you access to all of the popular streaming services such as Netflix and Amazon Prime Video.
