Best Chromebook deal this Black Friday

Acer Chromebook Spin 513 CP513-1H (was £400, now £299)

The Chromebook Spin 513 is unusual in that it uses a Qualcomm processor - the Snapdragon 7c - instead of an Intel or Mediatek chip to power it. That ensures solid battery life as well as snappy performance, and the price isn't bad on Black Friday either: it has been reduced by 25% from £400 to £299.

The best Chromebook deals this Black Friday

1. Asus Chromebook Flip CX5500FEA (was £600, now £500)

There are plenty of Chromebooks that come with a 360-degree hinge and touchscreen but not many also come bundled with a stylus for sketching and taking notes like this handsome Asus machine. On top of that, it has a huge 15.6in display, an Intel Core i3-111G4 CPU, 8GB of RAM and a 128GB SSD for storage.

2. Asus Chromebook Flip C433TA (was £499, now £330)

When you're buying a Chromebook, if you're seeking an extra bit of extra performance, the trick is to look for Chromebooks with Intel Core CPUs like this Asus 2-in-1 convertible, which comes with an Intel Core M3-8100Y, 8GB of RAM and 128GB storage. This is a phenomenal deal, too, with £169 off the previous average price of £499.

3. Asus 14in Chromebook C425TA (was £367, now £230)

This Asus has an awful lot going for it for not much cash. It looks great, comes with a large 14in Full HD display with an IPS screen, a backlit keyboard, an Intel Pentium 4415Y CPU with 4GB of RAM and 64GB of eMMC storage. There's nothing fancy here - no 360-degree hinge nor touchscreen - but, for £230, down from an average price of £367, it's an outright bargain. Also note that the Intel Core m3 version of the C425TA is also on sale for £250, down from an average price of £362.

With a touchscreen, a 360-degree hinge and an attractive, slim design, the Lenovo IdeaPad Flex 3 is the ideal first laptop for children just starting school. The screen is a little on the small side, at 11.6in across the diagonal, but at this Black Friday price, who's complaining?

6. Acer Chromebook 311 733T (was £230, now £150)

With MIL-SPEC durability and a spill-resistant keyboard, the Acer Chromebook 311 is the perfect laptop for kids. Storage is a bit on the low side but the Intel Celeron N4000 CPU and 4GB should be sufficient for basic tasks. At £80 off the regular price it's a veritable bargain as well.

7. HP 11a 11.6in Chromebook (was £250, now £150)

With a MediaTek MT8183 processor, 4GB of RAM and 32GB of storage, this HP Chromebook may not be a performance powerhouse but it's an inexpensive option if you're looking for a Chrome OS laptop for basic tasks and a spot of streaming. Its battery lasts 15 hours too, so it's great when you're out and about.

8. HP 14b-na0005na 14in Chromebook (was £400, now £300)

9. Asus C223 11.6in Chromebook (was £199, now £139)


You're not going to get class-leading performance for this price, but the Asus C223 is a frill-free Chromebook for doing some light work or streaming. It also looks good and feels solid, while the 11.6in display is crisp, the battery life of just under 12 hours is reasonable and the speakers deliver a surprising amount of oomph. Just beware of its sluggish speed.

10. Lenovo IdeaPad Duet Chromebook (was £280, now £199)

The Lenovo IdeaPad Duet doesn't promise rip-roaring speeds, but we still gave it five stars. Why? First, it's incredibly portable and the detachable keyboard/touchpad has a pleasant, springy feel. Second, it has a crisp screen and surprisingly rich audio. Third, it looks great. Finally, and most importantly, it lasted a gargantuan 16 hours and 14 minutes in our battery life test.
