Amazon now offers ASUS’ 11.6-inch Chromebook CX1 1.1GHz/4GB/32GB for $179.99 shipped. That saves you $50 off the normal going rate, marking a new all-time low and only the second notable discount we’ve tracked. Sporting a lightweight build with military-grade durability, this budget-focused Chromebook is perfect for younger students. It touts an Intel Celeron processor for speeds up to 2.2GHz, and 12-hour battery life to help you or your child take on a full day’s worth of classes. Rounding out the hardware, you’ll find two USB-C ports alongside a single USB-A and a microSD card reader. This #1 best-seller is rated 4.3/5 stars from over 4,000 customers. See more below.
If the extra USB-C ports aren’t a must, HP’s classic 14-inch Chromebook is marked down to $160. This one comes equipped with all the must-have Chromebook features including 11.5-hours of battery life and 32Gb of flash storage, as well as a larger 14-inch screen for enjoying Netflix or YouTube, or just as a wider studying space. Rated 4.4/5 stars.
Although, we did just track some exciting $70 savings on HP’s 2-in-1 Chromebook X360 as well. Boasting a 14-inch HD touchscreen display, you can fold this one into tablet mode for everything from digital artistry to using the keyboard as a built-in stand. Plus, it comes packed with 64GB of storage, which could make it a more versatile studying companion if you don’t mind a slightly higher price tag.
