Cyber Monday Chromebook deals
Acer Spin CP713-1WN – was £800, now £700 (12% off)
We liked: Speedy, good battery life
We didn’t like: Poor speakers
A tidy £100 has been knocked off this Acer Chromebook for Black Friday, taking it down to £700. Like the Dell model we mentioned earlier, the hinge lets you fold over the screen.
You get a 13.5-inch display on this widescreen laptop, with the dimensions similar to a sheet of A4 paper. Rotate the display and you’ll find the shape of the laptop makes editing word documents a breeze.
Acer Chromebook 11 CB311 – was £280, now £225 (12% off)
We liked: Thin and light, nice design for such a cheap machine
We didn’t like: Lack of ports could frustrate, as could the touchpad
This is the cheapest Chromebook on our list. Acer is knocking another 12% off the discounted price for a limited time – you’ll need to enter the discount code CD10 on the brand’s website to take advantage.
Weighing in at just over 1kg, the 11-inch Acer Chromebook 11 has a quad-core Intel Celeron processor, 32GB of storage and 4GB of Ram. The lack of an HDMI port means you’ll need an adaptor if you want to plug this computer into another monitor.
HP Chromebook 15-de – was £499, now £399 (20% off)
We liked: Attractive design, reasonably fast
We didn’t like: Heavy, disappointing speakers
If you’re shopping for a big-screen Chromebook, add this model to the shortlist. It’s a 15-inch machine with a dual-core Core i3 processor, 8GB of Ram and 128GB of solid-state storage. We really like the tight corners and soft curves of this HP – it gives the laptop a premium feel.
It’s pretty quick as well, but we did have some niggling issues with various aspects of performance, such as the tinny speakers, plus it weighs a bit. Our full review reveals all.
