UPDATE: Nov. 14, 2022, 11:45 a.m. EST 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 HP 11.6-inch is the ideal compact design for young students — $79 $98 (save $19)

BEST 2-IN-1 DEAL CHROMEBOOK DEAL: The Acer Chromebook Spin 311 is beloved for its convertible flexibility and sturdiness — $170 $249.99 (save $79.99)

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.

Cheap Chromebooks

Why we like it

You can feel good about putting this Chromebook in the hands of a kid. (Its claim to fame is literally its ability to fall off a desk and not break.) HP’s compact, rugged Chromebook isn’t meant to be an every-day hardcore work laptop, but it does harness enough power for schoolwork and other basics like web browsing.
