Got $200? One of these capable Chromebooks can be yours on Cyber Monday

Chromebooks are wonderful lightweight laptops all year long, but the best Chromebooks earn extra love around the holiday shopping season. Why? Their beautiful blend of pricing and performance gets even sweeter with all the Cyber Monday deals popping up right now.

While many of my favorite Chromebook deals are up in the $300-$500 range — like lowset-to-date prices for the HP Chromebook x2 11 and Lenovo ThinkPad C13 Yoga Chromebook — you can get a great Chromebook for half that price, too. The Lenovo Flex 3 is a winning sequel to our beloved Lenovo C330, and at $150-160, it's a steal.

Lenovo 10e Chromebook Tablet (Save up to $265)

This is the classroom-tested version of the Lenovo Chromebook Duet, with a 400-nit, 1920 x 1200px touchscreen, long battery life, and unlike the Duet, this version actually has a headphone jack. You can buy just the tablet for $99, but I recommend grabbing the keyboard bundle for $139 for a better out-of-box experience. This tablet will also get Chrome OS updates until June 2028, meaning this $100 tablet will last 3-4 times as long as any Android tablet you buy today.

From $99 at Lenovo

Acer Chromebook 311 (Save $140)

$109 at Best Buy

Powered by a MediaTek MT8183C Octa-Core processor, the Acer Chromebook 311 has 4GB of RAM and 32GB of storage. There's also a USB-C port for connectivity, charging, or adding a second display.

ASUS CX22NA Chromebook (Save $120)

$109 at Best Buy

You can spend more on a Chromebook, but you might not need to. This little champ from ASUS is going to be able to do almost everything you need it to do and at $99 makes for the perfect gift for anyone who needs to stay connected while on the go.

Samsung Chromebook 4 (Save $70)

$129 at Walmart (32GB) $180 at Amazon (64GB)

It may not be the newest Chromebook on the block, but it's a great fit for strapped budgets and casual computing. With up to 12 hours of battery life and 4GB of RAM, the Chromebook 4 is great for homework, writing, everyday computing, and lightweight travel.

Lenovo Chromebook 3 (14") (Save $160)

$129 at Best Buy

The Lenvov Chromebook 3 is powered by an 8-core MediaTek processor, has 4GB of RAM and 64GB of storage onboard. It also has a 1080p full-HD display, so the web looks great.

Lenovo Chromebook Flex 3 (11.6") (Save $230)

$149 at Best Buy (Arctic Grey, 32GB) $160 at Amazon (Blizzard White, 64GB)

The Lenovo Chromebook Flex 3 is the same winning formula as the Lenovo C330, but it'll get Chrome OS updates until June 2028. Combining that with a 2-in-1 touchscreen, stellar battery life, and durable build makes it a no-brainer for kids.

HP Chromebook 11a (11a-na0010nr / 11a-na0060nr) (Save $90)

$170 at HP (Ash Grey) $180 at HP (Indigo Blue)

Need a durable, affordable Chromebook for your kid to bang on for the next 5-7 years? This HP 11a will get Chrome OS updates until June 2028, meaning it could last your grad school kid clear into middle school.

Acer Chromebook 311 (CB311-10H-41M9) (Save $50)

This ruggedized, classroom-tested Chromebook should be able to survive anything your rambunctious kid throws at it (under 10lbs, at least). While I wish this was a touchscreen model, this laptops has everything else you'll want in your kid's Chromebook: long-lasting battery life, ample storage for offline homework or apps, and USB-C Power Delivery so it can use the same charger as your laptop.

$179 at Amazon

HP Chromebook 14 x360 (14a-ca0130wm) (Save $100)

$199 at Walmart

With a 14-inch touchscreen, beautiful Indigo Blue colorway, and 64GB of storage, this 2-in-1 HP Chromebook is ready to adapt to your life and your workload with ease. The up-facing speakers also make it easier to hear lecture videos or video calls.

If you're getting a Chromebook for a kid, 11.6-inch models are highly portable and more durable, but for adults, you'll likely want a 13-14-inch laptop for easier multi-tasking and reading. The HP 14 x360 isn't the highest resolution, but it is a touchscreen, and that's always a bonus, especially in this price bracket.

If you're after something a little more powerful for your next Chromebook, take a gander over in our Cyber Monday Chromebook deals for more tantalizing offers. I'm also still expecting the Lenovo Flex 5 to see a big discount at some point between now and midnight Tuesday morning, so keep your eyes peeled, as it could potentially drop into the $200-$230 range for an i3 processor and a 1080p touchscreen.

Protect your kids by setting up a supervised YouTube account

YouTube Kids has been around since 2015 and has grown into a great place for children to explore what YouTube has to offer safely. In 2021, the company is expanding ways for younger viewers to see more of what's available from the streaming service, along with a more mature interface with supervised accounts. Instead of a separate app, these accounts will use the official YouTube app, so knowing how to set up a supervised account for kids on Youtube is important. If you want to protect your child from some of the less than appropriate content that can be seen on YouTube, then you'll want to be sure to have the supervised account properly set up. YouTube announced supervised accounts as a way for kids aged 9+ to see to more of what the service offers while still under the guidelines set by their parent. So, whether you have picked up one of the best phones for kids or maybe a tablet like the Lenovo Smart Tab M10 HD that has Google's Kids Space for your child, here&#

Whitestone Dome screen protectors return for the Google Pixel 6 and 6 Pro

These accessories don't come cheap. What you need to know Whitestone has launched new tempered glass screen protectors for the Google Pixel 6 series. The screen protectors are more expensive because they use liquid adhesive. Whitestone sells these accessories for as low as $45. The Google Pixel 6 and 6 Pro already feature Gorilla Glass Victus for both its front and back panel, which is touted as the toughest phone glass available. But that should not give you full confidence that the phones will withstand repeated drops. While you can always buy a screen protector, your options for capable items are likely to be limited due to a number of factors, including the phones' curved display. Fortunately, Whitestone is now back with its tempered glass screen protectors for Google's best Android phones after skipping the Pixel 4 and 5 series (via 9to5Google ). Whitestone has a reputation for providing some of the highest-quality accessories on the market for protecting

Samsung Galaxy S21 FE review: Better phone, worse price

This upgrade is an uphill battle for Samsung thanks to steep competition. It's hard to believe that it's been a year and a half since Samsung redefined the "flagship killer" concept with the Galaxy S20 FE . At the time, the phone blew us away with its quality, delivering a true flagship experience for a significantly lower price than a "regular" Galaxy S20. The Galaxy S21 FE was rumored to be released the entire second half of 2021, and now it's finally here. The Galaxy S21 FE debuts with some of the expected upgrades over its predecessor but still retains many of the points that made the S20 FE a more affordable device. You won't find a brand new camera array on this phone when compared to 2020's device — that's a 12MP sensor for the main and ultra-wide lenses, while an 8MP sensor still resides behind the 3X telephoto lens — but Samsung has upgraded the styling to be more in line with the Galaxy S21 and the rumored look of the Galaxy
