New Chromebooks are arriving left and right and soon, we should see some saucy deals on the latest and greatest ChromeOS devices on the market. That’s great news but it’s no reason to not take advantage of a killer deal here and there on a new Chromebook if the occasion arises. Right?
I started doing a monthly deal roundup a while back to highlight the biggest and best discounts at the beginning of each month. Problem is, that the deals change so frequently that the monthly roundup often overlooked some of the BEST deals that just happened to drop later in the month. For that reason, we are now going to bring you a weekly(perhaps bi-weekly) roundup of the best ChromeOS deals around. Here, you’ll find my top five picks of the week but you can still count on more deals throughout the month as they arrive. So, without further ado, here are my top five Chromebook deals for January, 23 2023.
Acer Chromebook Spin 714
For three years running, Acer has produced what is probably the most well-rounded mid-range, premium consumer Chromebook available. We’re talking about the popular Spin 713 and now Spin 714 series that’s readily available from Best Buy. Powered by an Intel Core i5 CPU, 8GB of RAM and toting a hefty 256GB SSD, the Spin 714 is the first 16:10 device in the family and it sees the return of the garaged stylus that we liked so much on the original Spin 713. Regularly priced at $729, the Spin 714 may be a bit steep for some but thankfully, this formidable ChromeOS 2-in1 frequently goes on sale. Right now, you can pick one up from Best Buy and save $150. At $579, this Chromebook is a steal.

Lenovo ThinkPad C14 Chromebook
If you’re looking for a powerful, business-minded Chromebook, look no further than the latest ThinkPad from Lenovo. Normally, these enterprise-focused laptops are priced so high that we just can’t recommend them for the average user and that’s a shame because the ThinkPad C14 is a sturdy and powerful Chromebook that’s a pleasure to use. Powered by Intel’s 12th Gen Core CPUs, the ThinkPad has all the horsepower you need and some handy features such as the signature ThinkPad pointer stick in the middle of the keyboard, a trackpad with actual buttons, and an optional fingerprint reader.
Normally, the ThinkPad C14 would run you as much as $1,600 if you opt for the Core i7, 300 nit display and optional LTE. However, you can save as much as $600 on this formidable device when you use the promo code THINKJANUARY1 at checkout. Additionally, you can nab an extra 10% cash back when you use your free Rakuten account when you check out.
Acer Chromebook Vero 514
Looking to go green but you want to do it in style? The eco-friendly Acer Chromebook Vero 514 is exactly what you’re looking for in a new Chromebook. Powered by a 12th Gen Intel Core i5, this “Green PC” has all the features you’d expect in a premium Chromebook but does so with a unique design and planet-conscious chassis that’s designed with 30% post consumer recycled materials. Regularly $599, you can pick the Vero up at Best Buy and save $100 right now.
Lenovo Chromebook Duet 5
My favorite ChromeOS tablet of all time, the Lenovo Chromebook Duet 5 offers up a beautiful and bright 13.3″ OLED display that’s great for content consumption. That said, the Duet 5 is a dual threat because it’s large enough to actually be productive when you slap on the detachable keyboard. It doesn’t hurt that the Gen 2 Snapdragon 7c SoC gives you great battery life which means that you won’t have to plug in nearly as often when you’re out and about or just watching some flix on the couch. Regularly $499, the versatile Duet 5 is back on sale for $379 at Best Buy.
Lenovo Chromebook Flex 5i
This is the Chromebook that just keeps giving. The Lenovo Chromebook Flex 5i is one of the best values around and the constant deals on this 11th Gen convertible make it one of the most affordable flagships on the market. Right now, you can pick up the 8GB/256GB model for a very palatable $329. If you want a flagship device with plenty of power but you are on a strict budget, this is the Chromebook to beat. Find all the buying options over on The Chrome Shop.
That’s it for this week’s roundup but there will absolutely be more deals to come. You can sign up for a Deals Newsletter below so you never miss out on the latest and greatest Chromebook and Pixel promotions.
