Our favorite Chromebook of 2021, the Lenovo Flex 5, has dropped to $300

Buying a Chromebook can be a tricky purchase sometimes. You're already working from a budget, but you still want to get the most bang for your buck. Right now a Chromebook we already valued for its features compared to its great price tag is actually even less expensive thanks to Amazon's Epic Daily Deals. Grab our favorite overall Chromebook so far this year, the Lenovo Chromebook Flex 5, on sale for just $299.99. That's a $110 price drop over what this Chromebook was selling for near the beginning of the year and $70 off its most recent street price. It's the best price we've seen and even beats a deal we shared just a couple months ago.

Lenovo Chromebook Flex 5 2-in-1 laptop | $70 off

One of Amazon's Epic Deals features two Chromebooks down to low prices, and we like them both! The Flex 5 is currently our favorite, but the C330 is a strong contendor as well.

$299.99 at Amazon $425 at Walmart

This deal is part of Amazon's new Epic Daily Deals. That means the price is only good through the end of the day. However, since it's part of a larger sale it's not the only Chromebook down to a low price. You can also get the Lenovo Chromebook C330 2-in-1 laptop for just $209.99. That's also a new low price for the C330 and about $60 off its street price. This is an older Chromebook, and while it's not our current favorite like the Flex 5 is, it has been in the running in the past. Read about the C330 in our review that gave it 4.5 stars out of 5 and a Recommended badge.

Now the Flex 5 got a full 5 stars out of 5 and a The Best badge in our review. Ara Wagoner said the Flex 5 "might be my new daily driver going forward." She added, "Equally suited to banging out articles while I'm huddled up on the couch or doing some light research while I sit in the shade and people watch, the Lenovo Flex 5 is a great fit for my life and will more than likely be a great fit for yours, too."

The specifications include a 13-inch 1080p touchscreen display, an Intel Core i3 processor, 4GB DDR4 RAM, 64GB flash storage, two USB-C ports, a USB-A port, Wi-Fi 6, Bluetooth, and more. Use Chrome OS and the Cloud or expand your storage with a media card reader.

The hidden cost of food delivery

Noah Lichtenstein Contributor Share on Twitter Noah Lichtenstein is the founder and managing partner of Crossover , a diversified private technology fund backed by institutional investors, technology execs and professional athletes and entertainers. More posts by this contributor What Studying Students Teaches Us About Great Apps I’ll admit it: When it comes to food, I’m lazy. There are dozens of great dining options within a few blocks of my home, yet I still end up ordering food through delivery apps four or five times per week. With the growing coronavirus pandemic closing restaurants and consumers self-isolating, it is likely we will see a spike in food delivery much like the 20% jump China reported during the peak of its crisis. With the food delivery sector rocketing toward a projected $365 billion by the end of the decade, I’m clearly not the only one turning to delivery apps even before the pandemic hit. Thanks to technology (and VC funding) we can get a ri

Technics EAH-AZ60 review: Contending in stunning fashion

Technics serves notice that everyone should notice these earbuds. Technics ventured into the wireless earbuds category to go after the big dogs in the race. Think of the likes of Sony, Bose, and Sennheiser on sound quality, as well as the best you can find on design and functionality. It's a combination that comes at a price, but if done right, it gets easier to justify spending more. That's the case Technics makes with its EAH-Z60 earbuds. Its newest pair aims to take what the company has done in the past and make it even better. The results are easy to like and are significant enough to consider them as serious contenders.

iOS 14 Favorites Widget: How to Make a Replacement With Shortcuts

In iOS 14 , Apple overhauled widgets and introduced an option for adding ‌widgets‌ to the Home Screen , but in the process, a well-loved Favorites widget that existed in iOS 13 was removed. The Favorites widget let users set certain contacts and contact methods as favorites that were easily accessible, so you could, for example, add a favorite option for messaging Eric or calling Dan, with those actions executed with a tap. Why the Favorites widget was removed is a mystery and it could be a simple oversight with Apple planning to reintroduce it later, but for now, those who relied on the widget can recreate its functionality with Shortcuts. It takes some effort, but it may be worth the time investment if you often relied on your Favorites. Creating a Favorites Shortcut Making a shortcut that replicates the behavior of the Favorites widget isn't too tough, but if you want multiple favorite options, you'll need to create a separate shortcut for each one in the Shortcuts
