Chromebooks Discounted Across the Internet – Here Are The Best Deals

Thinking of buying a Chromebook? You’ll already be aware that most models are pretty cheap, but over the last few weeks they’ve gotten even cheaper!

Here’s a round-up of some of the best Chromebook deals and discounts available right now.

Samsung Series 3

The Samsung Series 3

The ARM-powered Samsung Chromebook arguably saved the entire Chromebook project from disaster.

It, along with lower priced siblings from Acer and HP, have proved critics and analyst predictions wrong. Chromebook’s accounted for 25% of the low-end laptop market in the last 8 months alone!

Samsung’s Series 3 Chromebook was already pretty cheap, but one offer from US e-tailer Newegg.com is especially tempting: a Samsung Chromebook for $229 shipped, plus a free 500GB HDD to go with it.

Caveats being that the offer is only available to those in the US and is limited to 5 per customer.

But if you’ve been debating whether to buy one this discount could just tip the balance.

Amazon US are matching the price at $229 but not throwing in any extras.

Best Buy are offering a refurbished Series 3 for $199. Sounds good, but given it’s a refurb I’d wager that the free 100GB Google Drive storage that typically comes with all new Chromebooks will have been redeemed.

If you’re in the UK then there are still deals to be had. Amazon UK are offering the 3G version of the Samsung Chromebook, normally £299, for £249.

If you’re not averse to buying second-hand (bearing in mind that the free Google Drive storage is likely to have been redeemed) then eBay is a great place to look. There are several Buy It Now Series 3′s on eBay UK for only £139 – a saving of £90!

Acer C7

The most recent Chromebook to be released (albeit as a revised model of one previously released, see below) is the 16GB SSD-toting Acer C7.

It’s not quite as svelte as the Samsung Chromebook, nor is it able to match it on battery life, but it is generally a little cheaper and, with a more-traditional Intel processor, is by no means a bad buy.

Typically selling for $229, Newegg are currently offering a brand-spankin’ new C7 for $199.

If you’re more concerned about storage Amazon US are offering the 320GB HDD version, with 4GB of RAM, for $219, down from the retail price of $289.

    CDW has refurbished Samsung Chromebook Series 3 as low as $152. I picked up the 3G version for $175 after taxes. I was able to redeem the 100gb for Google drive and the 100mb per month of verizon service. Awesome deal!

    Does this start on a certain date? The prices on the sites are not the same as prices in the article.

    I picked up the Google Play Store Samsung Chromebook Refurb’d a while back and also redeemed the 100Gb of Google Drive Storage, it’s not per device, it’s per account activating a Chrome OS device :)
