Best Buy has simultaneous sales on high end Chromebooks with flip screens and touch displays together with the $25 Visa checkout discount yielding all time lows on a number of products. Of particular interest to me is the Acer R 13 which I reviewed earlier this month that hasn’t seen a discount yet. It is now $75 off if you use the Visa Checkout.

If you want to spend less, the ASUS Flip 2-in-one is only $195 (after Visa Checkout) for the 2GB version but I’d chip in another $10 for the 4GB RAM version.

If you are looking at the very solid MacBook-like Acer Chromebook 14, you are better off heading to Amazon where it is still $229 shipped.
