Globally, the Chromebook market is still in its infancy state as users push for manufacturers to expand availability of Chrome OS devices world-wide. We won’t begin to speculate as to the semantics involved in making this happen but we can share with you Chromebooks that you can get your hands on today.
If you happen to be one of our friendly neighbors to the North, Amazon Canada has a more than decent selection of Chromebooks and we wanted to highlight some of the best and brightest at your disposal.
ASUS Chromebook Flip C302
Still my personal favorite for 2017 thus far, the Core m3 convertible houses 64GB storage, 4GB RAM and has access to the Google Play Store in the Beta channel. At CDN$ 649.99 the ASUS C302 comes in a couple of dollars cheaper than here in the U.S. (If my conversions are correct, of course)
Samsung Chromebook Plus
By far one of the most hyped devices of the year, the Samsung Chromebook Plus is powered by the RK3399 ARM processor and was designed with Android Apps in mind. The brilliant 2400×1600, 3:2 display is second to none and makes for an unbeatable tablet experience.
You can pick one up today for around CDN$ 709 and have it on your doorstep in a little over a week.
ASUS Chromebook Flip C213
This Chromebook isn’t even technically available here in the states yet but you can get a jump on it and place your order today. The ASUS C213 is the latest, Apollo Lake-based EDU device from ASUS. With dual cameras, optional stylus and rugged military-grade specs, the C213 will soon be the Chromebook of choice for countless schools across the globe.
You can pre-order one from Amazon for CDN$ 469 which is right in line with the cost here.
HP Chromebook 11 G5
The HP 11 G5 isn’t the flashiest device out there but if you’re looking for a budget Chromebook that can handle Android Apps and casual computing without breaking the bank, this may be the machine for you.
Braswell N3060, 4GB RAM and 16GB of storage, this is a great little Chromebook to tote around in a backpack or on holiday. Grab one for only CDN$ 281.69. (Note: this is NOT the touchscreen model)
