Chromebooks under $100 are Black Friday’s specialty — and multiple options have already dropped that low

UPDATE: Nov. 1, 2021, 2:15 p.m. EDT This story has been updated to include the latest discounted prices on Chromebooks at Amazon, Walmart, Best Buy, and Target ahead of Black Friday 2022.

BEST CHEAP CHROMEBOOK DEAL: The Asus C403 has a large 14-inch screen for the price and a rugged dark blue design — $89 $279 (save $190)

BEST 2-IN-1 DEAL CHROMEBOOK DEAL: The Lenovo IdeaPad Duet is beloved for its convertible flexibility, including being a completely detachable tablet — $199.99 $299.99 (save $100)

Simply being alive right now requires almost everyone to have access to a laptop for one reason or another. What isn’t a necessity, though, is paying MacBook-esque prices for one — especially during Black Friday season.When 1 TB of storage, a desktop-level processor, or a zippy gaming-specific graphics card simply aren’t specs you’d take advantage of daily, you should definitely look into Chromebooks. Despite generally being in the lower price range, the good ones have sufficient specs for simple multitasking, and the premium ones introduce fancier features like Intel processors, touchscreens, and 360-degree hinges. With a Chromebook, almost everything you do is automatically backed up on Google Drive, so you won’t lose your files if your Chromebook breaks — a nice cushion for elementary and middle school students who haven’t developed frequent saving as a reflex yet. This backup system, as well as the fact that Chrome is less frequently targeted by malware than Apple or PC devices, makes them the perfect device for paranoid internet users of any age.All newly added deals have been marked with a ✨. Anything with a strikeout was either sold out or no longer available at the sale price as of this writing, but check back often — we’re updating this page constantly. All Chromebooks marked with a ⚡️ are already at their Black Friday price, as marked by select retailers’ early Black Friday sales.

Why we like it

Any wickedly affordable laptop understandably draws early “piece of junk” allegations, but the lightweight Lenovo Flex 3 receives consistently satisfactory reviews. The MediaTek processor is more than efficient when it comes to basics like web browsing, document editing, or online schoolwork, which you can jump between seamlessly via the touchscreen. $99 is the Flex 3’s confirmed Black Friday price, so there’s no reason to not snag it now.
