Amazon’s annual Prime Day is less than 48 hours away. While we still don’t know if we well see many Chromebooks among the thousands of deals, we do know that Amazon has announced a smorgasbord of sales on 4K televisions. We presume some of those will be Chromecast built-in devices and we’ll share here as soon as we know more.
In the meantime, we’ve found some pre-Prime Day deals on some of the best Chromebooks on the market and wanted to bring them to you for your shopping enjoyment.
Samsung Chromebook Pro & ASUS Flip C302
Likely the two most popular devices of 2017, the Samsung Chromebook Pro and the ASUS Flip C302 are both highly capable, Core m3 convertibles that handle Android Apps and moderate to heavy workloads with ease.
Both are on sale right now on Amazon and with Prime’s fast, free shipping you can have either one (or both) as soon as Tuesday. The Samsung is normally priced at $549 but is discounted to $519. The ASUS C302, regularly priced at $499 gets a $30 price cut as well to $469.
Samsung Chromebook Plus
The Pro’s little brother is getting in on the action as well. We’ve seen the Samsung Chromebook Plus discounted as low as $387. While not quite that cheap, you can still save over $40 dollars on the ARM-powered, 3:2 convertible right now.
Acer Chromebook 14
I don’t know if I will ever stop loving this device. All-aluminum, Full HD and just a great all-around device. For everyday use, travel and even work, the Acer Chromebook 14 still passes the test while looking great. Grab a refurbished on for only $186.
Lenovo ThinkPad Chromebook 13
A total workhorse, the classic ThinkPad design house a powerful Celeron 3855U processor that can handle some major tasks. Business or pleasure this thing will get the job done and won’t break the bank. Pick one up on sale for $205.
Thanks to thebeeobee for a great suggestion. Some of the devices above have access to the Google Play Store and Android Apps. Currently, the Samsung Chromebook Pro/Plus have the Play Store in the Stable channel of Chrome OS. The ASUS C302 has access in the Beta Channel. The Acer Chromebook 14 can use the Play Store in the Developer channel. For the full list check out my article here.
