When you dip down below the $250 mark when buying a Chromebook, you are undoubtedly going to have to make some compromises. If you get decent features, the device will probably be approaching its end of life. If the Chromebook is new to the market, it likely has a bottom of the barrel processor and/or is built like a straw house. Out of power, durability and price, you might as well go ahead and count on getting two out of three. That’s if you’re lucky.
If you’re in the market for a rugged Chromebook for the kiddo or kiddos in your life, finding something under $300 that’s worth its salt could be a mind-numbing task. Thankfully, one company has stepped up to offer wholesale pricing to the general public on a classroom-grade, late generation touchscreen Chromebook,
