Affordable laptops and Chromebooks are an ideal choice for kids or older adults who are in need of basic computing capabilities, since they won’t break the bank but are still powerful enough for all of their everyday needs.

One Chromebook in particular is currently on sale on Amazon, and it rings in at just $199. The Acer Chromebook 11 is 31 per cent off right now, making it a great bargain ahead of the holidays.

The laptop also comes with an impressive HDR camera to have you looking your best on video calls.

Featuring a durable design and spill-resistant keyboard, this Chromebook can hold up to even the toughest conditions you can throw at it. A 10-hour batter life means you won't have to worry about recharging during the day, and a lightweight design (it weighs just over two pounds) lets you carry this laptop with you wherever you go.

Tech specs

For those looking for more information on the nitty gritty about this Chromebook, it features an Intel Celeron N4000 Dual-Core Processor, an 11.6″ HD Widescreen ComfyView LED-backlit IPS Display and 4GB of memory.

What shoppers are saying

Backed by a 4.5-star rating from more than 650 customer reviews, the Acer Chromebook 11 has been called an “excellent little laptop for the value.”

One reviewer noted that it's “great for school work” since it's “compact for a small desk” and its smaller size can easily be carried throughout the day. It's also been hailed as being “easy to setup” and “perfect for remote learning.”

Since this laptop runs on the Chrome operating system, some reviewers have noted that it's more suited to “basic” functions, including online browsing, watching videos, streaming, social media and some school work.

Final verdict

Ringing in at under $200, this Chromebook is an affordable pick that you won't want to miss out on. It does feature a smaller screen size and limited capabilities, but the tradeoffs result in a simple and lightweight laptop that's ideal for light computing and everyday use.

If you’re looking to shop this laptop on sale, this deal is only on for a limited time, so be sure to grab one while they're still in stock.
