When the HP Chromebook X360 14c with Core i3 and 8 GB of memory drops from its $629 price, it’s worth a look. You can pick one up for $429.
There’s a $100 discount right now if you need a solid mid-ranger. The $529 HP Chromebook X360 14c sale price gets you a Core i5 with 8 GB of RAM.
Aside from one common complaint about the plastic hinges, the Lenovo Flex 5 Chromebook is a great mid-range convertible. For the next few weeks, the 8 GB, Core i3 model is discounted to $399.
There’s a case to be made for every new Chromebook to come with a minimum of 8 GB RAM. But that would raise prices in the sweet spot of sales and not everyone needs that much memory.
