Cyber Monday is here, and it’s the last chance to get crazy deals on products before the Christmas is around the corner. If you have been waiting for a great deal on Chromebooks, we’ve got two for you. And they are from Amazon.
Chromebooks are already extremely low-priced. Granted that you don’t get to do a lot on a Chromebook. But if you’re like most people who spends over 90% of their time on the web browser, then you could certainly do well with a Chromebook. That’s why Chromebooks have been selling well in the past few months and there are Chromebook offerings from almost every major computer manufacturer in the market today.
So let’s take a look at some of the Chromebook Cyber Monday Deals on Amazon.
This 11-inch Chromebook from Acer has picked up enough positive review from the tech press to make it a stellar performer in the market. It works well, it feels well, and it’s extremely low-priced. The regular price for an Acer C720 Chromebook is $199.99 for the 16GB model. Today, thanks to Cyber Monday, you can get it for just $149.99.
Let’s remind you of the specifications of this low-cost laptop. The Acer C720 sports an 11.6-inch display with 720p resolution. It has an Intel Celeron processor clocked at 1.7 GHz and 2 GB of RAM. It weighs only 2.8 pounds and Acer claims the battery lasts 8.5 hours, though you can squeeze out a little less than that.
The model on sale right now is the 16 GB one, but you can get a 32 GB model if you prefer. I was hoping a discount on both 16 and 32 GB models, but was a little bit disappointed to see only 16 GB model is eligible for a special Cyber Monday price.
Samsung Chromebook 2
Moving on to the other Chromebook that’s on sale right now, let us present you Samsung Chromebook 2. This Chromebook has also picked up mostly good reviews from the press, but it has been criticized by the consumers for being a little too pricey. On an average day, the Samsung Chromebook 2 will cost you $249.99. However, if you make up your mind and order yourself one today from Amazon, you’ll get a discount and avail the laptop at just $229.00.
Like the Acer C720, this Samsung Chromebook 2 also packs an 11.6-inch 720p display. But under the hood, it sports a bit more power than the Acer Chromebook. It runs on Intel Celeron processor, but it’s clocked at 2.16 GHz; so you’ll get a tad faster performance out of the Samsung Chromebook 2.
The laptop has Intel HD processor, 2 GB of RAM, and 16 GB of solid-state drive. It definitely looks and feels nice as an everyday computer, and it weighs even lighter than the Acer Chromebook, at just 2.6 pounds. Samsung claims you can squeeze out 9 hours of battery life out of the Chromebook 2, but that may be a bit exaggerated. Nevertheless, the battery performance will be satisfactory thanks to the Chrome OS which doesn’t need a lot of power to run.
So, before the clock strikes 12 in the midnight, marking the end of Cyber Monday, be sure to make up your mind and get yourself a nice, handy Chromebook for the holidays.
