Chromebooks are generally pretty cheap, as long as you’re not eyeing one of Google’s high-priced Chromebook Pixel models. Many sell for around $150 to $250. but that doesn’t mean they can’t get cheaper.

Right now there are bunch of deals on refurbished Chromebooks that bring the prices down a bit. You can pick up an Acer Chromebook 11 for $126, an Asus C300 Chromebook for $160, or a Dell Chromebook 11 with an Intel Core i3 processor for $280. And that’s just the tip of the iceberg.

  1. Look for Apple Watch in this space soon. Sales have apparently fallen by
    90% since introduction. With gen 2 due out in a couple of months, you
    can only wonder how low gen 1 owners are feeling now.

  2. Backblaze, an online storage outfit that buys a lot of off the shelf hard disks, has posited in an article (may have run on this web site) about how Seagate’s reliability has fallen significantly over the recent years. Hitachi (acquired by WD but apparently being run on its own production line) remains the reliability leader, with WD slightly less reliable I’m staying away from Seagate. Too bad there are effectively only 2 vendors. In a year, high capacity SSDs are supposed to show up (5 TB would not be unusual)
    although a recent article on their reliability when powered off (consumer SSDs may lose data iif
    not powered on in 3 years) is troubling.

  3. Chromebooks are generally pretty cheap…
    …Right now there are bunch of deals on refurbished Chromebooks…

    These articles on C*****books are simply amazing. They point up the fact that, journalists, who are a very small subset of the general population, either do not know the computer marketplace, or have a financial interest in pushing non-computers–one NEVER hears about the ridiculous down-sideS of owning a C*****book.

    Consider the following REAL computer; details of which took less than five minutes to obtain:

    “HP Stream 13 (13-c020nr)

    …In addition to the microSD card slot, the system’s HDMI port, headset jack, two USB 2.0 ports, and single USB 3.0 port are all on the sides of the system…

    Battery life is where the HP Stream 13 shines. It lasted 9 hours 9 minutes on our battery rundown test. That’s hours better than the Acer C720P-2600 (7:20), Dell Inspiron 15 Non-Touch (3531) (6:19), the HP Pavilion 10z (6:38), the Lenovo G40 (5:56), and the Toshiba CB35-A3120 Chromebook (7:04). The only system that beat it in this price category is the HP Stream 11 (9:23), and that’s by only by a scant 14 minutes.”


    Duuuhhh, I think I’ll take one of them Toshiba Crumbuks.

    I give the entire C*****book fiasco two more years.

      1. Some of us are Brad! Some of us are. Then there are those who just pass-by read an article and drops a diatribe only to sound stupid to those of us who are regular and appreciate the views in the articles in order to compare PREVIOUS article of other devices.

    1. I see your point comparison. But your critique is unwarranted. You apparently don’t come by here much!
      Now my mother who is in her late 70’s has become computer literate in the last dozen years or so. Does she need a laptop or pc? No! A nicely price used chromebook would be perfect for her so she can keep her pictures on her cloud drive account(several of the free gb ones, she has almost 500gb on two or three cloud drives for pics).
      She can do her Facebook, Skype and email as well as maybe catch up on her Spanish soaps! She wont be writing a term paper any time soon nor putting together a book of her recipes! And she does not spend hours upon hours on her small laptop either. If she did she has two electrical outlets by her side of her bed. So in a case like her this article may be just what my budget asked for!
      Thank Brad and Co.

      PS. And it’s only suggestion by Liliputing, they know their regulars are smart enough to do comparative shopping on more sites!

    2. If Chromebooks aren’t the thing for you, that’s fine, but I have yet to see a tech journalist who is somehow trying to fleece people into using them. Every article on Liliputing that reviews a new Chromebook includes a short disclaimer paragraph pointing out the constraints of ChromeOS and mentioning that it might not be suitable for all users. Same goes for all the other tech sites/blogs I read.

      I own a Toshiba CB35-B3340 — that’s the model with a 1080p IPS display — and use it every day for application development in interpreted languages. It’s a great machine. When I bought it eight months ago, there was nothing else remotely in its price range with a comparable display. I’m not sure there’s anything else now, for that matter. If it were to be run over by a bulldozer tomorrow, I wouldn’t hesitate to replace it with the same model.

      1. Too bad I haven’t seen many education-oriented Chromebooks with 1080p screens. Those models tend to be a bit more rugged and might last a fraction of a second longer against a bulldozer. 🙂

        1. It would be nice if there were more laptops that could survive a fall off of a table or desk to the floor — both Windows and Chrome based. Maybe as SSDs become cheaper and manufacturers use them more this will become reality (hard drives are the most fragile part of a laptop nowadays IMO although a laptop’s housing can be quite flimsy as well).

          Also for jawnhenry’s benefit Brad Linder is the owner and main correspondent/journalist for this site. In most cases you can’t say the owners of competing sites actually respond to comments on their respective sites (one site which I will not name is actually majority-owned by age 90 plus Sumner Redstone of CBS and Viacom fame — I doubt he even knows how to turn on a computer, certainly not how they function or how much they cost). Whatever you think about Liliputing you should respect Brad for responding to your comment — you won’t get that at the competition.

        2. I just want more 32GB and higher storage options. My 16GB cb3 has only 4GB available after adding ubuntu.

      2. I purchased the same model to replace my wife’s aging HP mini 311 and what a nice little device this is. for her needs it’s fine. Zippy fast and what a beautiful 13.3 inch display…

    3. I’m absolutely loving my Chromebook. With crouton, it’s a proper Linux pc, where all drivers just work – no need to fiddle.

      Imagine being able to back up your os or restore it in a few minutes while your pc remained functional enough to get work done.

      Chrome OS is limited, but enough for most people. With crouton, it has replaced my main laptop. I’m dying for a pixel now.
