ASUS Chromebook Flip CM3: was $329 now $272 @ Amazon (opens in new tab)
A deal that's exclusive to today (the actual Black Friday), this $70-off discount on this 2-in-1 Chromebook is worth checking out. We like its screen for its 3:2 aspect ratio, which means less scrolling when viewing web pages and documents, as you can see more at once.

ThinkPad C13 Yoga Chromebook: was $819 now $499 @ Lenovo (opens in new tab)
Yes, this isn't as cheap as some of the other Chromebooks, but it's a huge discount on a very good Chromebook. Not only does it have an aluminum chassis and the speedy performance of an 2.60 GHz Ryzen 3 CPU, 4GB of RAM and 128GB PCIe SSD, but it's also got super-thin bezels. Think of it as the Chromebook for business class.

Samsung Galaxy Chromebook: was $999 now $599 @ Amazon (opens in new tab)
Looking at this super-thin Samsung Galaxy Chromebook, most people probably wouldn't think it's a Chromebook until they turned it on. Its gorgeous 4K AMOLED display is better than what you find in most Chromebooks and its Core i5 processor is also far faster. 

(opens in new tab)

Google Pixelbook Go: was $849 now $722 @ Amazon (opens in new tab)
Another exception to the Chromebook rules, the Pixelbook Go is the kind of ultraportable laptop that you expect from the likes of Apple. This deal isn't huge, but if you want one of the best Chromebooks ever at a discount? We'd nudge you this way. Its backlight keyboard is super quiet and comfortable, and its Intel Core i5 CPU means you can open all the tabs and Android apps you want. 

14-inch Chromebooks

ASUS Chromebook Flip C433: was $479 now $329 @ Amazon (opens in new tab)
Asus' 2-in-1 Chromebooks are favorites, and this one should enable some pretty great productivity. Equipped with 8GB of RAM and a 64GB hard drive, this Chromebook deal makes it easier to level-up your purchase. Of course, it packs a touchscreen for optimal Android app usage.

Asus Chromebook Flip C434 2-In-1: was $570 now $468 at Amazon (opens in new tab)
Amazon's slashing roughly $100 off this mightily capable Chromebook. Its Intel Core m3 processor will help you more than the average Celeron or MediaTek, and its all-metal body is not something we expect to find below $500 in a full laptop. 

15-inch Chromebooks

(opens in new tab)

Samsung Chromebook 4+ 15.6": was $319 now $220 @ Amazon (opens in new tab)
The Samsung Chromebook 4 delivers a big 15.6-inch full HD display along with a Celeron processor, 4GB of RAM and 64GB of storage. Plus, it's rated for 10.5 hours of battery life and has Google Assistant built in. 

2-in-1 Chromebooks

Samsung Galaxy Chromebook: was $999 now $599 @ Best Buy (opens in new tab) 

Best Buy has a good deal on the original Samsung Galaxy Chromebook that knocks $400 off the price. That's a solid discount on this eye-catching 2-in-1, which sports a gorgeous 13.3-inch 4K touchscreen and a packed-in stylus. With a 10th Gen Core i5 CPU, 8GB of RAM and a 256GB SSD it has more than enough power to handle anything you can do with a Chromebook, though in our review (opens in new tab) we faulted it for its 6-hour battery life.

(opens in new tab)

Samsung Galaxy Chromebook 2: was $549 now $399 @ Best Buy (opens in new tab)

Best Buy has knocked $150 off the price of this model of one of our favorite Chromebooks. For a limited time you can get this Galaxy Chromebook 2 packing an Intel Celeron processor, 4GB of RAM, and 64GB of eMMC storage for just $399. That's not a lot of power, but web browsing and light productivity work will look great on the vibrant 13.3-inch QLED touchscreen, plus it lasts longer on a full battery than its 4K-equipped predecessor.

Lenovo Chromebook Duet: was $279 now $229 @ Walmart (opens in new tab)
This detachable 2-in-1 is popular with smaller-handed users, as its 10.1-inch screen makes for a keyboard that's a little scrunched. Either way, this is the Chromebook equivalent of the Surface Go — but better — as you get both tablet and keyboard for under $250.

Should I wait till Black Friday to buy a Chromebook?

Year in and year out, Black Friday always brings the goods for Chromebooks. Unfortunately, you may need a Chromebook before Thanksgiving and so you have to balance out your immediate needs vs the want to save up front. We typically see sales of around $120 or so, but as high as $300. Inventory, as we've said above, tends to g quickly, which makes this a time to buy before things sell out.
