A black Lenovo Chromebook against a blue background.

Looking for a simple computer that's designed for the basics? Chromebooks are a great, and affordable, option for those who want to create documents or presentations, stream shows or movies, share photos and browse the web. They're also generally ultra-portable so you can do work from the office, home, a coffee shop or anywhere else. Right now, this 11.6-inch Lenovo Chromebook 3 is just $89 at Best Buy, down from its original price tag of $139, so you get to save $50. There's no set expiration for this discount, but deals are coming and going pretty fast with Christmas just around the corner. We'd recommend ordering sooner rather than later if you don't want to miss out on these savings.

This Chromebook didn't make our list of best Chromebooks for 2022, but it's still packed with notable features. Equipped with 4GB of flash memory and a 64GB hard drive, this Lenovo Chromebook is both flexible and fast. It's powered by an Intel Celeron processor and Google's user-friendly Chrome operating system. It will last up to 10 hours on its battery, weighs less than three pounds and is less than an inch thick, making this laptop easy to carry with you anywhere.

It already comes with apps (you can also download thousands more), and it has built-in virus protection and cloud backup. Though it's sacrificed a CD or DVD drive to remain light and thin, it has a microphone/headphone jack, HD webcam with a microphone and a built-in microSD card reader, which is an easy way to add some extra storage.
