For shoppers on a tight budget, you should check out Prime Day Chromebook deals like Best Buy’s special price for the Lenovo Flex 3 Chromebook. Compared to traditional Windows-based laptops, Chromebooks are usually cheaper because they use low-end components, but without sacrificing performance because Google’s Chrome OS depends on web-based apps instead of installed software. The Lenovo Flex 3 Chromebook features the Intel Celeron N4020 processor, 4GB of RAM, integrated Intel UHD Graphics 600, and an 11.6-inch HD touchscreen. It’s also a 2-in-1 laptop, capable of switching forms through its 360-degree hinge.

Asus 14-inch Laptop — $200, was $350

It’s more than enough for basic tasks such as typing documents and checking emails with its Intel Celeron N4500 processor and 4GB of RAM, and with its 10-hour battery life, you can keep working even while you’re on the go. The 14-inch HD display offers decent quality and color for watching streaming content, whenever you need to take a break.
