HP Chromebook x360 14c

If you’re looking for something that’s quite powerful with some of the latest features you can find in ChromeOS, HP’s consumer-focused Chromebook x360 14c is one of the best on the market. Powered by an 11th generation Intel Core i3 processor, 8GB of RAM, and 128GB of NVMe storage, the HP Chromebook Convertible 14-inch is powerful, versatile, and very easy on the eyes. The touchscreen isn’t the brightest on the market, but it’s honestly the only thing we had to pick with our HP flagship.

In addition to the powerful internal components, the HP Chromebook x360 14c offers a premium aluminum chassis, a massive trackpad, loudspeakers, and a well-placed fingerprint sensor for fast, password-free login. Normally $699 you can get HP Chromebook x360 14c From Best Buy for an insanely low price of just $399. Pound for pound, this is probably the best overall value of any ChromeOS deal I’ve seen this week.

ASUS Chromebook CX1700

If you need something with the largest screen ChromeOS has to offer, both Acer and ASUS have the 17.3 that gives you all the basics you need to be productive. You can get these with options like a Pentium CPU and 8GB of RAM if you need more power but those looking for a big screen on a budget can buy the 17.3-inch ASUS Chromebook CX1700 for as little as $200 at present.

This Chromebook isn’t a powerful core but the Intel N4500 does well enough for students who just need access to the web. It would also be a great device for those who simply want a Chromebook around the house for basics like banking, social media browsing, and even some streaming. You’ll get a 17.3-inch FullHD display and a built-in numeric keypad for those who love crunching numbers. For a regular $389, Best Buy is offering the ASUS PC for only $189 for a limited time.

Lenovo Chromebook Duet 5

The Lenovo Chromebook Duet 5 is one of the most versatile Chromebooks out there, and arguably the best ChromeOS tablet on the market. The 13.3-inch Lenovo Chromebook Duet 5 features a crisp OLED display, 8GB of RAM, and a Snapdragon Gen 2 7c computing chip. Paired with a solid, detachable keyboard, the Duet 5 is the complete package for content consumption and productivity on the go.

The Duet 5 retails for $499, which might be a lot for those looking for a secondary device. However, you can pick one up for only $379 at the moment, and that makes this 2-in-1 a great value for what it offers. If you are part of Snapdragon Insider CommunityYou can have an email give you an exclusive $100 discount on the Duet 3 or its younger brother, the Duet 3. That discount works with the already discounted sale price on the Duet 5. That means you can get this premium ChromeOS tablet for as little as $279 . It’s such a good deal that I had to buy one for my wife. Get one from Best Buy before this deal ends.
