In the world of affordable computing, even with Prime Day Deals, it doesn’t get much less expensive, or more practical, than a Chromebook. But right now, we’re seeing the absolute best Chromebook deal available throughout all the Prime Day deals. You can get a 12-inch Acer Chromebook Spin 311 for only $210. That’s $120 off its original price of $330. Amazing!

Who is the Chromebook for? Well, everyone pretty much. This Acer Chromebook is might be as basic as laptops come, but that doesn’t mean that it’s not a wholly practical and even powerful device for home computing, media experiences, and office work. Kids might use a Chromebook as part of their virtual schooling experience (or just for homework) but at the same time, it’s an amazing device for kicking back with your favorite Netflix series, doing some work on your commute, or even balancing your books or making work presentations. This thing is small, but it’s also mighty.

Something that makes the Chromebook ideal for kids, and in fact the whole family, is the 360-degree hinge that lets you rotate the 11.6-inch screen to any angle. In a matter of seconds, your laptop can act like a notebook, a tent, a tablet, or a stand-up display. This is incredibly helpful for things like presentations or helping the kids with homework. Sharing the screen becomes intuitive, especially when you factor in the touch capabilities. You can swipe and scroll and touch on the Chromebook’s responsive and damage-resistant Antimicrobial Corning Gorilla Glass touchscreen. Add to this the wide-angle view webcam — supporting HDR imaging — which is amazing for Zoom and other video chats, and you’ve got a machine that’s friendly for the whole family, and hardworking too.

There are some more key features that make this Chromebook an incredibly handy laptop. Firstly, it’s durable, so you can pop it in your bag, or the kids’ knapsacks, and not worry too much about jostling or banging. It’s great on battery life, giving you up to 10 hours with normal use, which is more than an entire work or school day. And then there’s phenomenal connectivity — two USB Type-C ports for ultra-quick data transfer and charging; two USB 3.0 Type-A ports; a microSD — to make sure this computer is adaptable to all your devices.

We’re seeing some amazing Prime Day Chromebook deals today. For bargain hunters, it’s a bonanza. But if you’re looking for the most affordable of all these already inexpensive Chromebooks, look to the Acer Chromebook Spin 311. It’s only $210. That’s $120 off its original price of $330. Get it before it’s gone!

The good thing about the deals is that it’s quite often that there are deals we can take advantage of. So, once Prime Day deals come to an end, Amazon’s Black Friday deals soon start to show up on the horizon, so with that in mind, be here to check Chromebook sales out.

The HP Elite Dragonfly Chromebook looks like the best Chromebook ever made

Chromebooks continue to evolve, but at CES 2022, they took a big leap forward. HP has announced the Elite Dragonfly Chromebook, a companion to the standard Elite Dragonfly, now in its third generation -- and it's easily the most premium-looking Chromebook I've ever seen.

It sports a look straight from the Elite Dragonfly, which in itself takes some inspiration from HP's premium Spectre line of laptops and 2-in-1s. Suffice to say, these are the cutting-edge designs, not the out-of-date chassis styles that often end up in Chromebooks.
