This unbeatable Chromebook deal gives you a 2K touchscreen for $330

This may be the best $300 Chromebook deal I've ever seen.

As AC's Chromebook queen, I check Chromebook prices the way most of you check sports scores or the weather forecast, looking to see if the best Chromebooks have gotten some overnight discounts or lightning deals that could help you get a better laptop for less. Today, Acer announced its first Thunderbolt 4 Chromebooks, including a new version of last year's wildly popular Acer Chromebook Spin 713. With the new model is launching at $700, last year's $530 and $630 models are starting to see sweet sales. I expected to see them down to $450-$500, but I was not prepared to see $329 staring me in the face on Best Buy's website.

If you value your eyes or your wallet, go grab this immediately before it sells out.

Premium screen, budget price

Acer Chromebook Spin 713

$329 at Best Buy

This is worth it for the 2K touchscreen alone.

Balancing excellent performance and futureproofed fundamentals, Acer produces the most well-rounded Chromebook for those who need to get things done and get them done fast. This model only has 4GB of RAM, but the 10th Gen i3 and 2K touchscreen are unbeatable for this price

The Acer Chromebook Spin 713 is the runner up in Best Chromebooks — and only beaten by the Lenovo Flex 5's $400 price point — and the best business Chromebook, or at least the still $630 i5/8GB model is. This is the i3/4GB model, but it's still more than capable enough for most regular users and gives you one of the best screens on a Chromebook to date, with a 3:2 aspect ratio for better multi-tasking and a brighter screen that's easier to use outside.

Considering most $330 Chromebooks are either 1366 x 768 pixels or 1920 x 1080 pixels and have either a Celeron or MediaTek processor, the value Best buy is giving you here on this year-old Chromebook — which will still get Chrome OS updates until June 2028 — is absolutely unreal. I don't expect this to last long, but so long as it does, this is hands-down the best Chromebook you can buy under $500 and possibly the best Chromebook deal of the year, since I doubt we'll see anything so generous during Prime Day this summer.

6 things Apple stole from Android at WWDC— and one that Google should steal

Every year, Apple and Google trade ideas for their newest versions of iOS and Android, respectively. But this year, during Apple's WWDC 2021, it seems like Apple purloined more than a few ideas that Google's integrated into Android over the last few years. Millions of iOS users won't get their hands on iOS 15 and iPadOS 15 until later this year, so until then, we don't know until then how the new features will fare in the real world. For now, here's a tongue-in-cheek look at six features Apple, um, borrowed from Android with its latest software releases. Jump to: iPad widgets and app drawer Live Text Apple Maps AR navigation iOS notifications New Siri capabilities Apple Photos Bonus: What Google needs to steal iPad widgets and app drawer iPad OS 15 introduced two big new updates for the iPad home screen today: widgets and the App Library. If you think this sounds awfully familiar, there's a good reason for that. 2020's iOS 14 introduced both
