Chromebook Black Friday deals, including some already available

Now’s a great time to be in the Chromebook buyer’s market and not just because we’re entering the Black Friday sales season. There’s much wider range of Chromebooks at nearly every budget; more so than any year I can remember.

Here are some of the Black Friday deals I’ve found so far, including a few that are already available. I’ll add more to this list if I come across any more throughout the week, so check back!

I already pointed out Samsung’s Chromebook Plus v2 and Chromebook Pro sale prices, which are currently available to save you up to $150 off. My recommendation of the four choices is the $449.99 Samsung Chromebook Plus v2; it seems to offer the most bang for the buck.

Although you can’t get a deal on the $899 Acer Chromebook Spin 13 I recently reviewed, there are several other models that will be discounted at various retailers:

For those looking to score a deal on the Google Pixelbook, this is the best pricing I’ve ever seen for the 2017 model, which is my daily driver. Well, at least until I get my Pixel Slate, that is. Starting today and running through November 28, Google is directly selling all three Pixelbook models at a $300 discount and zero percent financing over 24 months. I’ve also seen this price cut at Best Buy and other retailers.

Speaking of Best Buy, the big box store has a dozen Chromebooks on sale for Black Friday and you don’t have to wait to take advantage of them. Here’s a sample:

  • The new Dell Inspiron Chromebook 14 is $499.99, saving you a $100 for the Core i3 2-in-1 laptop with 8GB 4GB of RAM, 128 GB of storage and 1080p touchscreen.
  • The HP Chromebook X2 tablet with detachable keyboard, Core m3, 4GB of memory and 32GB of storage is also $499, down from its $599 price.
  • The capable but bare-bones Dell Inspiron 11.6″ Chromebook with Celeron, 4GB of RAM, 32GB of storage and 720p display is a bit old but at $149.99 is good enough for basic browsing on a budget.

WalMart also has a basic 2-in-1 device available for $50 off with the Lenovo Chromebook S330 but you may not find it in stores. If you don’t mind ordering for delivery the MediaTek MT8173c-powered Chromebook with 4GB of RAM and 32GB of storage and 14-inch display — 720p only though — is $199.99.

Aside from these specific deals I highlighted, I saw a number of super low-cost Chromebook sales at Target, which has a pair of older HP choices for $199.99, and an Acer 14 NX.GC2AA.007 14-inch Chromebook also for $199.99 (down from $299.99) at Staples.

Clearly, many of these sales are on older, less expensive devices, but there are a few mid-range and high-end options too. Have you seen any other Chromebook deals? Drop ’em in the comments!

Another deal found:

The HP Chromebook X360, which has very similar specifications to the HP Chromebook X2, is on sale directly from HP for $449, which is $150 off. Thanks for the tip, George!

One day only deal (11/23) on the Asus C302 from Amazon: $99.01 off:

    the only version of the HP Chromebook X2 on offer in the UK is the m3 8GB, 64 GB at £799 ( yes GB pounds). Been waiting weeks for a better offer so on Friday i ordered a Pixelbook i5, 8GB, 128GB for £699 instead; buying from John Lewis in the UK gets a two-year warranty. Not too fussed about pens…
    It’s your own fault HP.

    “saving you a $100 for the Core i3 2-in-1 laptop with 8GB of RAM, 128 GB of storage and 1080p touchscreen.”

    Typo here – 4GB of RAM. If it were 8GB, I would have bought it yesterday, lol.

    Canceled my Pixel Slate order and got the Pixel Book. Couldn’t justify the Slate price with these discounts.
