Chromebooks have earned a reputation as cheap laptops with limited functionality… and some of them certainly fit the bill… while others (like Google’s Chromebook Pixel) were high-end devices that only an enthusiast could justify buying.
But over the past few years we’ve seen a number of semi-premium models that offer better features than you’ll find in a premium model, but at a price that’s lower than what you’d probably pay for a decent thin and light laptop.
Case in point: Samsung’s Chromebook Plus v2 is a convertible tablet-style notebook that comes with a digital pen and a choice of a Celeron 3965Y or Core m3-7Y30 processor, 4GB of RAM, and support for up to 64GB of storage.
Prices usually range from $500 to $600, but right now Samsung and Amazon are selling select models for $100 off, which means you can pick up a pretty good thin and light convertible Chromebook for as little as $400.
Here are some of the day’s best deals.
- Samsung Chromebook Plus 12.2″ convertible for $400 and up – Amazon
- Lenovo Chromebook S330 14″ w/MTK8173C/4GB/64GB for $200 – Lenovo (via eBay)

Note that the Samsung also uses the Marvell Avastar chipset, which at the moment is not a good thing:
$500 isn’t cheap! for a Chromebook – its more than enough to buy a low end windows laptop
– $200 to $300 would be cheap for a decent chromebook!
Not to mention crostini support out-of-box!
