Chromebooks are more than just cheap laptops… there are are some models that are actually pretty expensive.
But even the cheapest models offer some of the key benefits of Chrome OS: the operating system is fairly secure, since apps run in a sandboxed environment. Chrome OS boots in seconds and resumes from sleep even more quickly. And updating to the latest build of the operating system is as simple as rebooting the computer: it takes just a few seconds once the update is downloaded.
So yes… not all Chromebooks are cheap. But some really are. Here’s a roundup of some of the day’s best deals, including a few bargains on Chromebooks for as little as $85.
