The Acer Chromebook 14 CB3 for $219 ($80 off): A 14-inch screen and roomy keyboard make this a worthwhile choice for students. The CB3 also features 4GB of RAM and 32GB of onboard storage, and its stylish gold chassis is thin and light at about 3.4 pounds.
The Roku Express HD with $10 Vudu credit for $29: There's nothing entry-level about
least expensive streamer. It serves up Netflix,
, YouTube and all the other services a student would want, and it's plenty fast to boot. It sells for $29 pretty much everywhere, but Walmart's exclusive Vudu credit is icing on the cake: It'll buy a few rentals or maybe even a discount movie.
