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.

Follow these steps to connect a Pro Controller to your Android phone

Playing games on your smartphone is one of the best ways to entertain yourself. However, it can be tough to play with some games when you're just tapping on a screen. Fortunately, it's possible to sync up a traditional controller. That's where it's nice to connect your Nintendo Switch Pro Controller and get playing on the best gaming phones . By the way, the Playstation 4 controller as well as the Xbox One controller are also compatible with Android devices, if you'd prefer to use one of those. Note: You will only be able to use a Pro Controller if your phone is running Android 10 and if the game you're playing supports controllers. Additionally, the process for syncing the controller with your phone will be different from one phone to the next.

FCC approves broadband 'nutrition labels' to help you shop for internet

The FCC is pushing nutrition labels for internet providers. What you need to know The FCC has voted to move forward with new rules for ISPs to display nutrition labels. The proposed rulemaking would mandate ISPs to display relevant speed and pricing information to consumers. This should make it easier for consumers to make an informed decision on their broadband. The FCC voted unanimously on a plan that would allow consumers to make better decisions about their broadband internet. The proposal will require internet service providers (ISPs) - including many of the best wireless carriers in the U.S. — to display "nutrition labels" that display relevant service information for consumers at point-of-sale. This includes internet speeds, allowances, and clear information on rates. "If you walk into any grocery store and pull boxes of cereal from the shelves, you can easily compare calories and carbohydrates," FCC Chair Jessica Rosenworcel said in a statemen

You can make your new Pixel look like a Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle

A cool thing about Google’s Pixel 6 series phones is their unique camera bar design . If the finish of that strip were a different color than black — specifically blue, orange, purple, or red — it would totally look kind of like the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles . And now that you can’t unsee the resemblance, device outfitter Dbrand would like to help make your Pixel 6 device look like one of your favorite childhood heroes. With Google’s latest phone the Pixel 6a releasing next week , Dbrand decided it's a good time to revisit the sewers and launch its Teenage Mutant Ninja Pixels decals for all three phones. They match the green heroes-in-a-half-shell plus their masks, and include four camera decal strips that reflect the colors of Leonardo, Michelangelo, Donatello, and Raphael. Personally, I think the Pixel 6a’s two-camera array does the best job looking like proper eyes (the spidery camera array of the Pixel 6 and 6 Pro, not so much). Available now for the Pixel 6a: https://

HBO just canceled this comedy, despite its 100% Rotten Tomatoes rating

HBO has canceled animated comedy after three seasons.  Close Enough was created by JG Quintel, the man behind cult comedy Regular Show, who also topped the bill of voice actors, which included Gabrielle Walsh, Jason Mantzoukas, Kimiko Glenn, Jessica DiCicco, James Adomian and Danielle Brooks. Close Enough followed Josh and Emily – and their young daughter Candice – a couple in their late 30s, who live in a Los Angeles duplex with their divorced friends, Alex and Bridgette. The show chronicled their lives as they dealt with everyday challenges, with things frequently taking surreal and sci-fi style turns.  Originally intended to air on TBS in 2017, after a series of delays, the show debuted on HBO Max in 2020. Three seasons of eight episodes each have been broadcast, with the most recent season coming to a close in early April of 2022.  The show has featured a number of high-profile guest stars during its run, including the likes of Jane Lynch, Henry Winkler, "Weird Al"
