This is a national site for deals, so anyone posting local deals will be well received by those in the same area due to the reach of this site. Of course the deal is valid, I don't get why people complain, if it's not in your area then scroll on somewhere else.

Not according to your profile. Does that mean you've been lurking for 12 years? In the 3 months you've been a member you've posted no deals and made two comments, why did you bother?


​As the phone has probably logged me on under Facebook or whatever. It's not rocket science, though with the lack of your brain cells its understandable. Now go and make another pointless comment on another thread.

My local JL usually have at least half a dozen laptops discounted because they are deemed second hand once returned by customers under distance selling regs.
Is anyone seriously suggesting that all of these could be posted as deals?
And then what about all the other JL stores which will have similar stock?
C'mon guys time for a little common sense isn't it?
Surely "deals" should be available to at least a few punters rather than just one-offs.

So wonderful people if I had to choose between this or thishttp://www.hotukdeals.com/deals/asus-chromebook-c201pa-johnlewis-149-95-2584116
with my £150 budget - which would be a better buy?
They both have capability for the playstore I think - does anyone know does the Asus have a touch screen?? I've googled and some say touch pad rather than screen?
All help and advice most appreciated!

Im in the same situation as you i think.
About to travel Auz so a chromebook may suit my needs.
Came across this. £200, 4GB, can access Play Store....
Unless anyone here wants to correct me, the £50 extra than the two you highlighted seems worth it....

I have yet to use a chromebook style device that can handle watching movies without the constant stutter and lag.

Even opening up office online lags these things.

These are great for 1 purpose and 1 purpose only.

Browsing and researching information on the internet.

If you are the type of person who needs to do alot of reaearch or enjoys searching online and general shopping these are great and the fact you cant watch movies and get distracted is a positive with these.

Please someone upload a video of youtube playing a basic 720p video on one of these without stutter or lag and I will eat humble pie.

It all depends on whether you think its worth the money.

I do own a chromebook and use it for research and for this sole purpose they are great as that what they are designed for.



​i use my ancient c720 and it plays you tube 720p video smooth with no lag, with no problems. I think your getting confused with your internet connection. I'm not even on fibre broadband and it runs fine. I'm sure many Chromebook users here will agree for streaming videos, Chromebooks handle videos with ease.
can i skype with a chromebook
Get a Chrome book with 4GB of RAM or more for the best experience and make it future proof. 2GB no longer cuts it and when Android apps start integration then at least 4GB is going to be needed. My chrome book idles at over 2GB RAM usage with just the browser open one tab (plus all apps and extensions it opens with). If you're a very light user a good tablet w/keyboard in this price range is probably a better idea than a Chrome book.
Couldn't you get a fully working 11" laptop for this price though?

Can the SSD on this be upgraded, does anyone know? I've googled, but only seen a teardown where they replace the motherboard (which would I guess indicate it's all soldered on).

I just bought one of these from Richer. It's pretty good. I think my room is a bit too big but it works very well in a smaller one...

I recently got this from richer sounds who price matched a curry's £20 off audio voucher. I looked everywhere for a good deal so I'm a bit gutted you've posted this ha.
the Qb is pretty amazing for its size, bass and highs seem brilliant but mids are lacking for me a little but hopefully once broken in it'll improve as mentioned by other customer reviews. This thing goes loud and stays clear. The build quality is outstanding. so far ive tried Spotify connect and Bluetooth which both work perfect. naim app seems good easy to use with lots of functions. quickly tried playing tunes on my nas over lan which worked fine but need to try that out more. it was a doddle to set up internet radio presets and was pleased to find out my bird can easily turn her radio station on using the touch controls on top of the speaker rather than having to get phone out open app etc(to be fair if our lass can easily play Spotify or radio on it then then it must be simple to use.
I did an insane amount of research into the best one unit network speaker and everywhere gave this speaker rave reviews. I tried out lots of comparable products such as Bose sound touch, Samsung R7, panasonic allplay, b+w zeppelin, b&o Neolithic 15, Dennon heos (this one surprised me, i was impressed with all the Dennon heos range, so much so I got the heos sound bar and sub in a half price deal). the naim blew every other speaker away for sound quality and build quality.
Thank you.

Sorry if this is a stoopid question - but does this model work with the google play store?
Not yet, and no, it's not a stupid question as I also assumed Chromebooks would run Android apps and games but that's a 'coming soon' feature.

Not quite right - some Chromebooks can already run Android apps. But not many, and it will just take a while to get them all running them.




​Not all Chromebooks will be able to run Android apps, many older models aren't going to get the Play Store update.
Got mine last week, had a C720 before that so knew what to expect. Everything works perfect and with play store coming to soon I couldn't ask for more for the price.
Just received mine, pristine condition very impressed. Looking forward to seeing how Chrome OS develops.
Many will run apps if you put your Chromebook on the developer channel, rather than the standard build.

A full list of those that run now (and instructions on how to enable this) can be viewed here

Yes, sorry, you are right, I kind of meant globally being able to 'run the apps by loading by the Play Store' (so it's not specific machines) and not sideloading or other methods. I guess it's a matter of time, but like many others when Chrome OS first came out I just kind of assumed they would run Android apps out of the box. When they can all run the apps, it will be a massive boost for the OS - a bit like with Windows Mobile or BB10, if they had actually stuck to what they said...

John Lewis warranty not worth s**t.. too many exemptions....
I have their 3 year warranty and it doesn't cover a laptop battery (2 years in)
my son's 18 month old Samsung laptop charger broke. Laptop was from John Lewis. I contacted JL Customer Service and they told me to buy a new one myself and e-mail them a copy of invoice and they would refund cost. So, sourced and ordered a genuine Samsung one and I had money refunded by JL within a week .....

cannot fault customer service like that!

Had a similar Acer. Trackpad didn't work but they refused to admit a hardware fault despite many reports online of the same thing. Finally Acer accepted it back and replaced the trackpad but after a 2 week wait they had re-seated it wrongly and scratched the case. Took it back to Tesco for a full refund (they originally said they couldn't refund and to sort it out with Acer).

Never again.

​Better than chrome book. No common apps on chrome book so for Internet use only unlike Windows and Android which have all the apps . Unless chrome book comes with Play store and touch screen, I would not waste my money on one

It won't be used all the time as generally work on beast of a home PC, but I need something 1 day per week which will function very quickly and smoothly.
4GB RAM seems low for PCs but judging by Chromebook standards it's decent?

Possibly because some people are done with Windows. Since I bought a Chromebook, my Windows i5 laptop has been obsolete.
I'm going to upgrade to this one due to the 4gb and full HD screen, plus it's aluminium.
It's got decent reviews too.

How many hours a day did you spend in front of the computer with this promotion on average? Im guessing 15+?
Up to 10 hours at work with desk-top pc. The rest of the day it is still possible to leave a tablet with remote desktop close-by (even while sleeping). Depends on one's dedication.

My only disappointment is that I never got a 65 inch TV.

Well it was fun while I lasted and it was all like a game. Enjoyed the excitement of buying rather more than the actual products themselves.

The original Chromebooks touted that they never slowed down.

Does anyone know if that turned out to be true?


​My Samsung Series 3 boots just as fast now as it did when I bought it 2+ years ago, but it's slower browsing because I have more add-ins (pop up blockers etc) and I guess the OS is also getting bigger. Having said that, I also have netbooks from a similar era that grind along so slowly they're completely unusable.

Now is the wrong time to buy a Chromebook. The Acer R13 is due out immentley and there are more models from other manufacturers in the pipeline, the forthcoming android media is also a consideration. For a basic cheap Chromebook Amazon has the N22, which is often £99 or £94 with student discount. I would wait currently unless you want a simple basic machine.

A £99 chromebook won't have a full HD screen.

On the R13, you get a touch screen, but a Mediatek chipset, which may not be the quickest. http://www.omgchrome.com/acer-launch-worlds-first-mediatek-powered-chromebook/ says:

This price point would pit it against some (arguably) better Chromebooks in terms of specs.

The Intel-based Acer Chromebook 14 retails at €100 less, with most store offering it at €299.

Do you have any specific apps you need to run for your course?
I know some people on my course use them and they're happy for web browsing, email, essay writing and simple functions.
They do come a bit unstuck with running MS Office apps though. Google Docs does ok with some files and can export to MS Office compatible formats so you aren't without options but if you're collaborating with others it's not as straightforward as just working on a file in the MS Office environment.

A £150 14" Lenovo will be running the slowest cheapest HDD available and have some low spec CPU as well as probably being limited in RAM. In basic every day use it will be slower than walking through a river of treacle....
The slowest HDD will be faster than eMMC. eMMC is not the same as SSD and it's as fast as a SD card. An old(ish) thinkpad can be upgraded with more RAM and a proper SSD. You can get a barebone X220 and stick 16GB of RAM and an SSD and it will be faster than any Chromebook. I concede that a Chromebook will have a longer battery life and will be much lighter, but if portability and weight are at stake, better off to use a good tablet.


​i totally disagree with you. I got a old c720 Chromebook with 2gb of ram. I bought me a £280 laptop with i3 processor with HDD and maybe double the ram and in no way is this faster than my Chromebook. it's running Windows 10 and I even spent more money upgraded the ram to even more and the HDD to ssd and boy it's super quick to boot up, faster than my Chromebook in fact but it's still something missing. when you use it it still a slower experience than my Chromebook! surfing the web it's much nicer on my Chromebook it's just much smoother. I hardly use my laptop and it's brand new. so regarding your comment. Your figures are great but in reality it don't work. No way does a £150 laptop with a HDD be faster, smoother, more portable and power useable than a basic Chromebook experience.

Smartphones use flash storage because it's the only thing that fits in. Have you tried fitting a hhd or ssd into a phone? You're comparing apples with oranges. A Chromebook is just a slimmed down laptop. I'm not knocking it down, but they are just overpriced. I repeat. For the same money you can get a very good second hand laptop on which you can install any Linux distribution.
Er no obviously not. The point is to illustrate the nonsensical comment that emmc memory with no moving parts is slower than the "slowest HDD" spinning disk. Smartphones and tablets would be dog slow with a low end spinning disk.
You keep on missing the point. Yes, emmc is slower than hhd and yes, £280 for a laptop with modest specs is too much. I've done my best to explain that but you can't handle it.
Your tone is patronising when quoting me and giving your "expert opinion" to me on better alternatives to the discussed product. I don't need your opinion directed specifically to me about his when not only I am fully aware of multiple alternatives, but I have actually even agreed with your opinion that the item is overpriced. But maybe if you read my posts properly you would have noticed that. If you must quote me stick to the point I've raised about your post regarding emmc's .
You have stated “The slowest HDD will be faster than eMMC”. Well, slightly off on a tangent, but the latest smartphones for example have superfast emmcs so clearly what you have said is wrong.
Now if you can “do your best to explain” and link up some sites that show that 2.5" laptop hard drives, normally found in the previously discussed/compared cheapo windows laptops/netbooks, are demonstrably faster than a standard emmc in a chromebook, I'd love to read them.
OK, you're either a troll or very dense. I give up!

No don’t give up, just when you were doing so well!
No seriously, you could have just said sorry for your condescension, or somehow at least tried to back up your incorrect statements.
Instead you just added further insults.
This definition of the word troll actually seems to characterise your insulting and incorrect postings rather well:

A person who makes a deliberately offensive or provocative online post.

For the record, for anyone interested in the eMMC speed debate, here is one quote from the internet:

“In everyday use, performance of eMMC storage is somewhere between speed of HDDs and SSDs”

This would indicate that eMMC’s are slower than SSD’s (obvious to most people familiar with PC tech) but faster than standard HDD’s. In addition laptop HDD’s are normally much slower than 3.5 desktop HDD’s so in effect are the slowest of the spinning drive family. Plus many laptop setups with 2.5" HDD's are likely to have drives that power down to save energy after some time, potentially resulting in a delayed spin up time, leaving a potentially slower end user feel compared to an always on, no moving parts, eMMC.

Until chrome book has touch screen and supports Android play store, useless to buy.

Do you just copy & paste this on every Chromebook thread? (Been reading most of them this afternoon).

Have to say, disagree - these are not giant phones or tablets and serve a different purpose. Touch screen would probably add to much to the cost to make it viable as a budget browser/laptop.

have touch screen on my Transformer and the only time I use it is on Zinio - otherwise it tends to get in the way more than be used.


​Have you ever used an Android phone? All the apps are touch based. How can you use touch based apps without a touch screen. Probably Google apps might work but not most of other apps available on play store. All the cheap windows laptops have touch screens so it is not a big issue.

Google OS Based Laptop Competitor

If you read any of the pre-launch media reports about the Chromebook, you would know that it was touted as the faster, lighter solution to portable internet devices. What's more, it would boot up in seconds, give you web access wherever you go, and you wouldn't have to worry about getting viruses on it; something Windows users will likely suffer from at some point.

This ultimate buyer's guide to Chromebooks contains everything you need to know about how Chromebooks work, the specifications of various Chromebooks on the market, how they differ from Windows laptops and MacBooks, the pros and cons of buying a Chromebook, and detailed information about the Google Chrome OS. It is necessary to start this ultimate guide by first looking at how the Chromebook was developed so we can talk about how it was improved over time.

Chromebook History and Development

Samsung and Acer were the first laptop manufacturers to enter the Chromebook market in the middle of 2011. Other big brands like HP, Lenovo, and even Google didn't begin developing their own versions of the Chromebook until the start of 2013. Working alongside these experienced hardware partners, Google insisted on advanced computer components to produce fast boot times and work seamlessly with the web-oriented aspects of their Google Chrome operating system.

The first Chromebook on the market was the Samsung Series 5. It arrived on June 15, 2011, and quickly underwhelmed Google fans eager to try out the new Chrome OS. People were disappointed to discover that the 12.1 inch screen, 2 GB of RAM, a 16 GB solid state drive, and Intel Atom N570 dual core CPU clocked at 1.66 GHz in the Samsung Series 5 offered little advancements from standard netbooks on the market at that time. Meanwhile, two USB 2.0 ports, SD card readers, SIM card slot, and headphone jack concluded the list of connectivity options, with the absence of support for Ethernet, Bluetooth, and digital video output connections angering many users. All in all, the first ever Chromebook wasn't exactly what people expected after months of hype from Google's marketing team.

Since the launch of the Samsung Series 5, Chromebooks have been getting better year on year, with enhancements in battery life, processing power, and memory; all without compromising on weight.

Chromebook Designs and Features

Acer chromebookAlthough actual Chromebooks were initially designed and shipped by laptop manufacturers rather than Google themselve, the world's biggest search engine did demand that all Chromebooks retain a certain level of useful features and advanced specifications at a highly affordable price/performance ratio.

High on the list of Chromebook essentials is battery life. All Chromebooks boast exceptional battery life compared to that of traditional notebooks and perhaps even tablets and iPads. The average battery runtime is around 9 hours, meaning some more advanced models can give you even longer than this.

Another way some Chromebooks separate themselves from other in the pack is with their generous screen size of 15 inches; a rarity in the Chromebook world. The bigger screen means you don't have to squint your eyes when watching movies but won't produce any major impact on battery life. If you're looking at something more portable, you can buy 10 inch models that give you everything the bigger machines do while being easy on the wallet and comfortable to carry. Additionally, new features like touch-enabled screen capabilities and screen sizes, including 10 inch, 11 inch, 13 inch, and 14 inch displays, mean there are many more choices for potential consumers.

Like MacBooks, Chromebooks typically rely on Intel's family of Core CPU's for their performance and reliability attributes; although some Nvidia driven machines do exist. Chromebooks are equipped with SSD technology as standard but usually max out their capacities at 16 or 32 GB, relying on the free, introductory 100 GB of Google Drive cloud storage to satisfy this lack of on-board storage. Any upgrades in this level of computing power would end up being overkill for what you'd ultimately use a Chromebook for.

When it comes to plugging in your USB devices, most Chromebook makers don't see fit to add more than two USB ports; a decision also taken by Apple for its MacBook and MacBook Air models. Design-wise, the Chromebook range offers something special. While most Chromebooks do retain the standard laptop shell, some can provide the unique ability to turn the hinge connecting the keyboard and screen a full 360 degrees, allowing it to stand in a variety of angles you can't get from an ultrabook or MacBook. Chromebooks are also increasingly pushing more and more into the 2-in-1 detachable touchscreen/keyboard market.

Always New: The Chromebook

Is the Chromebook Like an Ultrabook?

You'll see Google and other Chromebook manufacturers focus on things like speedy boot up, app launch times, and internet resources within their marketing material. But if you keep up with news on all things tech, you may have seen adverts for Ultrabooks harping on about those exact features.

It could be said that a Chromebook is like a scaled down version of an Ultrabook. Ultrabooks do produce incredible Windows boot up and application launch times. They also have amazing battery life. But boasting next-gen Intel processors, fast SSDs, and heaps of RAM as their driving force, Ultrabooks are superior computing machines and have equally mammoth price tags to match.

So without putting them in the same league as Ultrabooks, the reason you could be attracted to Chromebooks is their dedication to handling all the everyday computing tasks you need to complete right away. That means sending that e-mail, making it on time for that web chat, and playing games when you have a spare minute or two. All of this is managed by Google's intelligent Chrome OS.

Google Chrome OS

The way Google's Chrome OS behaves is like a cross between an Android tablet, OS X, and Windows 10; albeit a much more minimalistic one. Anything you want to do on the Chromebook is done through an app. And Google's own family of apps are at the forefront of what you want to do. Simply log in to your Google account on boot up and you'll be connected to your YouTube, Gmail, Google Drive, Google Music, Maps, Docs, and all other Google service accounts. This means your personal setup is ready for you instantly, without having to log into each individual service. Other useful attributes of Chrome OS include:

  • Voice Search – A handy feature that lets you interact and control various actions just by speaking to your Chromebook. For example, you can perform a search on Chrome, schedule reminders in your calendar, and get directions on Google Maps. Android smartphone users may be used to this feature already.
  • Updates & Anti-virus – The Chromebook will download and install all available updates automatically, saving you time searching for and installing updates manually. What's more, because Chrome OS comes equipped with anti-virus software already preinstalled, you won't be bogged down by malware or resource draining anti-virus software.
  • Chrome Web Store – The Chrome Web Store is where you'll search and download any apps and games that take your fancy. Despite having a ton of apps to make up for the lack of preinstalled software applications, not many of them live up to expectations. Chromebook users grumble that most apps simply link out to web pages or promise lots of functionality that never translates into anything useful. That being said, there are still a few gems to be found.
  • Device Sync – Because you have to sign in to access your Chromebook, any actions you perform are saved in real time on Google's servers, meaning that whenever you access your account on your Android phone, tablet or Chromebook again, you'll be starting from your most recently saved actions.
  • Chromecast – If you have an HDMI port on your TV, you can plug in the Chromecast device and stream web pages, audio, and your favourite Netflix and Stan TV shows from your computer right onto your TV screen without any cables in sight. All the latest Chromebooks have native support for Chromecast, making it easier than ever to watch what you want on TV and avoid the annoyance of installing supplementary software.

Cloud Storage on the Chromebook

Chromebook customers are welcomed into the Google tribe with 100 GB of cloud storage on their Google Drive service. They also announce enticing offers now and then that could add up to an extra 1 TB of free storage space depending on the country of purchase. You will need to use this storage if you want to both keep your Chromebook running at its best and not fill up all the space on the low capacity internal drive.

To claim your free 100 GB of cloud storage on Google Drive, follow these steps:

  1. Open Chrome on your Chromebook.
  2. Search for "chrome goodies" or type https://www.google.com/chrome/devices/goodies.html into the address bar.
  3. Scroll down to Google Drive and click the button that says “Redeem offer“.
  4. Click “Allow“ on the pop-up window to allow Google Drive to check that you are eligible for this offer.
  5. When the check is complete, you will receive a message telling you that you now have 100 GB of cloud storage added to you Google Drive account.

Chromebooks vs. Windows Laptops vs. MacBooks

Windows laptops and MacBooks are sold as full service personal computers. In other words, you use them for more than just surfing the net and checking your e-mails. Google decided early on that the Chromebook would target the online enthusiast specifically and let rivals Microsoft and Apple cater to multimedia office applications, graphical editing software, and intense gaming.

That's not to say that the Chromebook can't do those things. But with space for expandable storage and memory upgrades on Windows laptops and advanced computing power built into MacBooks as standard, you'll be better off with Windows or OS X if you need to perform such tasks. If you think you can get by with using app versions of similar software and going online is more important to you, then a Chromebook may be right up your alley. Here's a list of pros and cons of the Chromebook versus Windows laptops and MacBooks.

Pros:

  • Live Sync – Taking full advantage of Google's network of services, you can sync your files to all your Android devices. That means you no longer have to worry about or waste time transferring and backing up files between your computers and external storage devices. Instead, all your files will be protected and available on demand from Google's cloud servers from any device with an internet connection.
  • Anti-virus – While many people say the OS X doesn't attract anywhere near the number of virus attacks as Windows, you still need to install some form of anti-virus software to prevent attacks. If you opt for a Chromebook, on the other hand, you get virus protection already built in.
  • Instant On – Chromebooks are designed to get you working moments from the time you hit the power button to the time you open up your first app. Windows and Mac OS can't compete with these speeds, with the exception of an Ultrabook, perhaps.

Cons:

  • Professional Software Suites – Microsoft Office and Adobe Creative Suite are the de facto industry standards for professional document and image editing among amateur to expert users. To manage the demands of such software, a computer needs a powerful processor, an advanced GPU, and heaps of memory; things the Chromebook can't give you.
  • Offline Use – While Google make a big fuss about instant access to your files across all of your devices, what happens when you can't access the internet? Chrome OS does have an offline mode but it can't hold all of your files in local storage due to the limitations of its smaller capacity drive.
  • Compatibility – Since Google want you to use their services, and only their services, Chromebooks aren't compatible with several popular applications such as Adobe Photoshop, Microsoft Office, and Skype and have limited support for some media formats like PDF and FLV. Experienced operating system developers Microsoft and Apple are less likely to let users down in these areas.

Chromebooks vs. iPads & Tablets

Both Chromebooks and Tablets are designed for consuming media. They also have similar price points, small dimensions and weight for extreme portability, and ability to return to working mode instantly with the press of a button. The distinction between the two is that one comes with a keyboard and track pad to perform tasks while the other has no keyboard attached but does let you control everything with a tap of your finger.

Asus Chromebook Flip

Pitting a Chromebook with touchscreen technology against a tablet is a whole different story, however. The Asus Chromebook Flip, HP Chromebook 14, and Chromebook Pixel 2015 all offer touchscreen displays, with the Google Chromebook Pixel 2015 sporting the best resolution of the bunch, which, at a respectable 2560 x 1700, is close to the 2048 x 1536 pixel Retina display of the iPad. Here's a list of pros and cons of the Chromebook versus iPads and tablets:

Pros:

  • Keyboard – iPads and tablets are generally used for going online, watching videos, and playing games. When you want to take down notes or have a text chat with friends or colleagues, though, the touch type can quickly become tiresome. An integrated keyboard feels way more comfortable, lets you type faster, and you can use shortcut keys much easier.
  • Battery – iPad and tablet users have to live with the fact that their device needs to be charged on an almost daily basis. They also take a few hours to fully recharge each time compared to the average two hour timeframe needed to charge a Chromebook.

Cons:

  • Display – One of the features tablet users care about most is the quality of the display. If you're going to be using it for media consumption then you don't want something optimised for your eyes as well as something that renders all details within games and videos. This is one area the Chromebook lets itself down.
  • Apps – The Chrome Web Store falls well short on the sheer number and quality of apps that are available on the App Store, Google Play, and the Windows Store.

Chromebook Explained

Accessories for the Chromebook

Google takes a simplistic approach to the Chromebook to make it cheaper for users who spend most of their time on the internet to buy a portable computer. This means compromising on some components and peripherals that laptop and desktop users take for granted. If you want to find out what can and can't be used with a Chromebook, here are a few accessories to make your computing time easier and more efficient.

It's important to remember that Chromebooks usually lack in connectivity options but they will work with any USB mouse. By plugging in a mouse, though, you take up one of only two available USB ports on the computer. And if you're thinking that you can connect via Bluetooth to keep your USB options open, think again because not all Chromebooks have Bluetooth as standard.

In the VGA port, you can plug a quality VGA webcam such as the Logitech C920 to enjoy Google Hangout chats with friends and shoot full HD 1080p video for uploading to YouTube. Plus, a dedicated headset can bypass the limitations of using the built-in microphone and speakers when chatting online or even when dictating text on a speech to text app.

An external hard drive is an essential accessory if you want to keep a physical backup of your important documents and media files. And if you want to run the media files from the drive, an external SSD offer faster file access speeds as well as superior protection from bumps and jolts than traditional hard drives.

Buying a Chromebook

Major technology retailers like PC World, Currys, and Amazon all sell an extensive range of Chromebooks. Not only do they advertise a good mix of display sizes to suit your budget, they also offer Chromebooks in a variety of styles and colours to suit your style. And if you're savvy enough, you may be able to grab one with cool accessories like a Chromebook bag to carry your new device around and keep it from getting scratched or damaged. Chromebook manufacturers including Dell and HP do sell their Chromebook versions direct to your door from their official websites.

One of the best times to buy a Chromebook is when Google advertises a new promotion. These can happen at any time of the year so you need to keep an eye out for them. But you can end up with offers like terabytes of free Google Drive storage, free music downloads, and other goodies. Outside of these promotions, other promotion periods like Christmas and Black Friday/Cyber Monday will usually produce some healthy discounts on Chromebooks and accessories.
