Well, it’s that time of year once again. Back to school! Over the next few weeks, children across the country will descend into classrooms big and small to kick off the 2022-2023 school year. While many schools are moving to a 1:1 format for ChromeOS devices, you may still find yourself in the market for a new Chromebook for your student or maybe even yourself. Fortunately for you, there are quite a few quality devices on sale these days, and you can save up to $300 on a new laptop to get you or your student ahead of ChromeOS.
I’ve rounded up some of the best Chromebook deals I could find to help you get a great device while saving some of your hard-earned money. Back-to-school shopping is stressful enough, so why not relax by putting some of your money in your pocket? Right? So, in no particular order, here are some recommended Chrome Unboxed Chromebooks that you can currently find on sale and ready to ship.
HP Chromebook x360 14c
If you’re looking for something with enough power, some of the latest features you can find in ChromeOS, the consumer-focused HP Chromebook x360 14c is one of the best devices on the market. Powered by an 11th Gen Intel Core i3 processor, 8GB RAM, and 128GB NVMe storage, this 14” convertible HP Chromebook is powerful, versatile, and easy on the eyes. The touchscreen isn’t the brightest on the market, but it’s honestly the only issue we’ve had to pick with HP’s flagship device.
In addition to powerful internals, the HP Chromebook x360 14c offers a premium aluminum build, a massive trackpad, upward-firing speakers, and a well-placed fingerprint sensor for fast, password-less login. Normally $699, you can get Best Buy’s HP Chromebook x360 14c for the 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 biggest screen ChromeOS has to offer, Acer and ASUS have a 17.3″ model that gives you all the essentials you need to be productive. You can get these devices with options like a Pentium CPU and 8GB of RAM if you need a little more power, but those looking for a big screen on a budget can pick up a 17.3-inch ASUS Chromebook CX1700 for under $200 at this moment.
This Chromebook isn’t a powerhouse, but the Intel N4500 gets around well enough that students just need access to the web. It would also be a great device for those who simply want a Chromebook around the house for basic functions like banking, browsing social media, and even streaming. You’ll get a 17.3″ FullHD display and a built-in number pad for those who love crunching numbers. Regularly $389, Best Buy has the ASUS on sale for just $189 for a limited time.
Lenovo Chromebook Duo 5
One of the most versatile Chromebooks out there, the Lenovo Chromebook Duet 5 is arguably the best ChromeOS tablet on the market. The 13.3-inch Lenovo Chromebook Duet 5 features a sharp OLED display, 8GB of RAM, and Snapdragon’s Gen 2 7c compute chip. Paired with a solid detachable keyboard, the Duet 5 is the total package for on-the-go content consumption and productivity.
The Duet 5 retails for $499, which may be too much for those looking for a secondary device. However, you can pick one up for just $379 right now and that makes this 2-in-1 a great value for what it offers. If you are part of the Snapdragon Insider community, you could receive an email with an exclusive $100 discount on the Duet 3 or its little brother, the Duet 3. This discount works with the already reduced sale price on the Duet 5. That means that you can get this premium ChromeOS tablet for as low as $279. It’s such a good deal that I had to buy one for my wife. Grab one from Best Buy before this offer ends.
