Chromebook Deals and Discounts for May 2017
With the competitive market for laptops and Chromebooks, retailers are constantly lowering prices, giving discounts and coupons for deals to stay ahead of the competition. Here is the place where we round up the deals, discounts and coupon codes to save you the most money. Really good deals go fast, so apologies ahead of time if something I link to has been discontinued. When looking at the deal we will mentioned if it is new used or refurbished. Refurbished Chromebooks usually are close to new and come with some kind of warranty. Some refurbished Chromebooks might come with minor blemishes but most are close to new and most people report getting the Google Drive storage with refurbished Chromebooks but YMMV.
Current Chromebook Deals and Discounts May 2017
Well built chromebook with solid reviews and great for kids or clumsy adults becuase it has the rubberized design features as well as being water resistant. It comes with 4 GB of Ram which is always nice to have especially with a number of tabs open. This small Chromebook is a great portable travel computer especially at under $200.
Decent deal on a convertible Chromebook with touchscreen that can either be operated like a traditional laptop or a tablet. This is the model with 4GB of Ram and a decent 32 GB hardrive. This model also comes with the HD IPS display that other low priced Chromebooks do not have. A solidly built Chromebook at a good price.
The great build quality of a Thinkpad in a Chromebook. This is priced right and might be the best deal for the money right now at under $200. This feels solid and while this one doesn’t have the IPS screen, you can pay a little more if you want an HD experience. Although this does come with 4 GB of RAM which I can’t recommend enough for a Chromebook. The keyboard stands out as well and holds up to the Thinkpad name.
One of the top Chromebook’s released in 2017, this has a great processor and screen and is also one of the Chromebook’s that can run Android Apps giving you a lot of flexibility. Not much of a discount because it’s so new but if your looking for a best in class Chromebook that’s light, thin and beautiful then check out this Samsung.
Considered one of the best chromebook currently on the market. The Acer 14 has a great screen along with plenty of Ram and storage. The guys at Acer really focused on build quality with this one, giving it almost Mac like feel. You can’t go wrong with this Chrome machine, especially with this discounted price.
If you are look for a smaller more portable Chromebook, this Samsung is a really great price. For $150, you get a machine that has 4 GB of ram along with a nice Celeron processor but I would suggest paying an extra $29 for the 4GB version of the Chromebook. The Celeron is a nice upgrade compared to many of the cheaper Chromebooks that come with a Rockchip or similar under-powered processing chips. I still like the HP a little better but if you want the smaller screen then this is a great deal.
ASUS Chromebook C202SA-YS01 11.6″ Ruggedized and Water Resistant Design with 180 Degree Hinge – $173
This is a great little Chromebook and perfect for kids. This was designed for the classroom and is spill resistant, has rubberized edges and 180 degree hinge. I love giving my kids a cheap chromebook to watch videos or do homework with because I know they can’t break it with all this protection. This is also just a good travel notebook and one that will take a lot of abuse and you can’t beat the price for the holidays.
If you are looking for a larger screen and a Chromebook your choices are a bit limited but currently Amazon is offering all of their 15″ Acer Chromebooks on sale.

A great little fanless chromebook and a decent price for under $200. This also comes with 4GB of ram which is always helpful for multiple tabs. The build quality on this is a step above other budget Chromebooks and the celeron processor gives a good compromise between performance and battery life.

Now that they’ve announced they are bringing the Google Play Store and Apps to Chromebooks and this device is one of the first that will have access, it’s nice to see it on sale.

Snap this one up while it lasts. This is a really decent Chromebook for the price. No your not getting the screen of the Toshiba 2 or the processing power of the new Acers, but what you are getting is a solid Chromebook for under $150 and that in itself is a steal. For most people this will be perfectly fine. Along with the free offers that Google is handing out for a Chromebook purchase, this is great for a second travel laptop or something for a student. Great deal!
The Toshiba Chromebook 2 has really boosted the image of Chromebooks with it’s 1080p IPS screen on a largish 13 inch display. You have last years model on sale for $269 and the newer version on sale for $299. While they both have those gorgeous IPS displays, the newer version gives you a backlit keyboard along with a faster Broadwell processor. They had to add a fan to the 2015 model to go along with the upgraded power but for $30 it might be worth it to go with the newer version. They both have great reviews and now a lower price at under $300 for 4GB of RAM. Outside of the excess of the Chromebook Pixel, this is the flagship Chromebook that also comes with outstanding 9 hours of battery life to keep you going all day.
Google has a great deal for the holidays offering a bunch of free stuff with the purchase of any Chromebook. They are giving you 3 free movies through the Google Play store, 90 days of Google music free, 12 free passes for gogo airplane access and 100GB of Drive storage. Considering they are constantly lowering the prices of Chromebooks and you can get decent Chromebooks for under $150, I would check out Amazons Deals and get one during the holiday season while Google is offering the all the free stuff.
If you want a larger screen you can’t go wrong with this 14″ Chromebook from HP. The Tegra chip while not out of this world powerful does give amazing battery life and will be fine for most Chrome OS operations. A nice little Chromebook for the money.
