No need to wait for Black Friday with these impressive Chromebook deals

Black Friday isn't too far off, and anyone in the market for a Chromebook should pay close attention. Last year, we saw major price drops on several of the best Chromebooks, including $50 off the Acer Spin 311, $250 off the HP Chromebook x360 14c, and $200 off the Samsung Galaxy Chromebook.

This year, some impressive Black Friday deals have already begun, mostly at Best Buy — where the retailer is promising to refund you the difference if the price drops lower after you buy it between now and Black Friday. If you want to relax and eat leftover turkey over Thanksgiving weekend instead of hunched over a keyboard, now seems like a great time to snag a deal.

We are rounding up all of the best Chromebook Black Friday deals that we can find from around the web, and we will update this page as more deals come in over the next month. We expect some amazing deals on the actual holiday, but for now, here are the best deals we've found.

Lenovo Chromebook Flex 5 2-in-1 Laptop | $100 off at Amazon

Our number one pick of the best Chromebooks, the Lenovo Flex 5 has a 13.3-inch 1080p touchscreen, 4GB of RAM, a 10-hour battery life, an Intel Core i3 processor, backlit keyboard, powerful front-facing speakers, and support through mid-2028. It's an affordable, balanced device, and this price is near to the lowest we've seen.

$330 at Amazon

ASUS Chromebook Flip C536 | $170 off at Best Buy

Our #5 Chromebook and the most balanced option on the list, the ASUS Chromebook has more premium specs than most Chromebooks, with an 11th-gen Intel i3 processor, 8GB of RAM, 128GB of SSD storage (many have eMMC), a 12-hour battery life, plenty of ports including HDMI, and support to June 2029. Plus, its 15.6-inch touchscreen is perfect for productivity. This deal ends tomorrow, and Best Buy gave it a Black Friday guarantee, so it won't get any cheaper later.

Samsung Galaxy Chromebook | $300 off at Amazon/ Best Buy

Chromebooks with 4K screens are few and far between, and none are as sleek and sexy as the Samsung Galaxy Chromebook with its 13.3-inch AMOLED touchscreen. Far lighter than most competitors at 2.3 pounds, the Galaxy Chromebook has an Intel i5, 256GB of storage, 8GB of RAM, and has a stunning red finish (or gray if you prefer). It sits on our best Chromebook list for a reason, and this early Black Friday deal is probably the best you'll see.

$699 at Amazon $699 at Best Buy

Samsung Galaxy Chromebook 2 | $100 off at Best Buy

The Galaxy Chromebook 2 downgrades on the 1st-gen model with just a QLED 1080p screen, flash storage instead of SSD, and a heavier build. But it'll save you a decent chunk of money, retains the cool red finish, and (most importantly) lasts about 5 hours longer than the power-hungry original. Grab this if you want a Chromebook that's longer-lasting on the go.

$449 at Best Buy (4GB model) $599 at Best Buy (8GB model)

Samsung Chromebook 4+ | $100 off at Best Buy

For anyone interested in a Samsung Chromebook but turned off by the Galaxy models' higher prices, this base model might be more your speed. It features a massive 1080p display, Intel Celeron N4000 processor, 4GB of RAM, and 128GB of flash storage, and you'll save a ton for Black Friday.

$279 at Best Buy

HP 11.6-inch Chromebook (11A-NB0013DX) | $99 at Best Buy ($160 off)

If you want to spend as little as possible, this already-bargain-priced HP Chromebook got its price tag sliced to bits. It has an Intel Celeron N3350 processor, 4GB of RAM, an 11-inch HD non-touch display, and 32GB of flash storage. Nothing to write home about, but it'll work for affordable browsing as a backup computer or a starter device for a kid. This deal ends today so grab it ASAP.

$99 at Best Buy

HP 14-inch Chromebook (14-ca064dx) | $149 at Best Buy ($170 off)

Compared to the 11-inch Chromebook above, this 14-inch model upgrades to 1080p resolution with IPS and anti-glare (though still non-touch) and 64GB of flash storage, but keeps the same 4GB of RAM and Intel Celeron processor. While still not a powerhouse, this model will make streaming and browsing much more pleasurable to look at. Again, this sale ends today, so don't wait on it!

$149 at Best Buy

HP 11" Touch-Screen Chromebook (11-da0023dx) | $200 off at Best Buy

Last and definitely not least in Best Buy's limited-time-only HP Chromebook deals is this 11-inch model with a Snapdragon 7c processor, 2160 x 1440 touchscreen, detachable tablet mode, and 8GB of RAM. Grab this deal before it's gone tomorrow.

What you need to look for when buying a Chromebook

There's always a ton of specs and features you typically need to juggle when shopping for a laptop, but for Chromebooks, the buyer's guide can be summed up pretty well into four points:

  1. Get a touchscreen. — Unless you're anti-fun, there's no reason not to get a touchscreen model; they do not cost that much more and it's always worth it. Touchscreens make it easier to interact with Android apps as well as making it easier to do things like sign documents or zoom in precisely.
  2. Pick your screen size first. Decide right now if you want something compact (11.6 inches), mid-size (12.5-13.5 inches) or large (14-15.6 inches). Processors and storage are pretty standard across each size category, so size is one of the defining features you'll want to sort out early.
  3. 4GB of RAM is good, 8GB is better. — Most Chromebooks sold today come with 4GB of RAM, and 4GB is perfectly fine for running a video call plus a dozen or so tabs in Chrome. More RAM is always better, but 4GB is still okay. If it says it has 2GB of RAM — or 16GB of internal storage — close the tab and walk away.
  4. Check the expiration date!!! — Yes, Chromebooks come with expiration dates, after which they are no longer guaranteed to receive Chrome OS updates. It's called the AUE date, and they're listed for every single Chromebook model on Google's support page, so take 10 seconds and look the Chromebook in your cart up on this page. The shorter the time before a Chromebook's AUE date, the less time you have to enjoy the full benefits of your Chromebook. Most Chromebooks that launched last year have six years of support and most models launched in 2020 have eight years of support ahead of them.

Android 12 will bring the end of third-party share menus

Apps like Sharedr will no longer be able to replace the default share dialog. What you need to know Third-party apps will not be allowed to replace the Android share menu in Android 12. You will no longer be able to set apps like Sharedr as the default. Google says it never intended to allow third-party apps to replace the official Sharesheet. One of Android 12 's biggest highlights is the new Material You design language, which brings major changes to nearly every key UI component. Android 12 will also introduce a major change to the way users share links and photos, according to a report from XDA Developers . On Android 11 , Google allows third-party apps and OEMs to fully customize the Android Sharesheet, which is the reason why the share dialog differs from one app to another. It is even possible to completely bypass the official Android Sharesheet by setting an app like Sharedr as the default Sharesheet. In addition to providing a more consistent experience, Sharedr

The new Amazon Fire HD 10 is growing into a viable productivity tablet

An already good entertainment device finally gets productive. Amazon has been busy churning out a whole host of new devices and upgrades to existing devices over the past several months. Earlier this year, I reviewed the excellent Echo Buds (2nd Gen) , and even the fantastic Echo Frames (2nd Gen), have since been updated to include options with sunglass and blue light filtering lenses . In early May, we also learned that Amazon was refreshing the Echo Show 5 and Echo Show 8 and that it was even rolling out its first Echo Show for kids . While newer and more novel products like the ones mentioned above often see a faster update cycle, more mature devices like Kindle e-readers and Fire tablets go longer between new versions. In fact, the last update to the Fire HD 10 line was back in 2019, so, understandably, Amazon was ready to reinvigorate its flagship tablet. Not only did it update the specs and colors on the Fire HD 10, but it also gave us a second version in the Fire HD 10 Plu
