At Lenovo, we offer some of the best Chromebook deals in the industry — these laptops and 2-in-1s provide an amazing computing experience at a fraction of the price. Chromebooks are thinner, lighter, and more affordable than your average laptop. Designed around the Chrome OS, these stripped-down PCs rely on cloud storage and a browser-based interface, rather than a built-in hard drive. This allows us to keep costs extra low, without compromising on build quality. Check out our selection of Chromebook deals at cheap prices, including under $200.
Unlike traditional laptops, Chromebooks run on the Chrome operating system (OS) which offers a minimalistic, web-based option that still offers plenty of functionality. Built for consumers on a budget, you can often find Chromebook laptops in the $200 to $300 range. Higher-end Chromebooks boast faster processors and high-resolution displays, and can cost upwards of $700.
We're proud to offer incredible deals on Lenovo Chromebooks with hi-res displays, 2-in-1 touchscreen functionality, and rugged designs that can withstand drops. Let's see if a Chromebook is right for you.
What are Chromebooks good for?
Since Chromebooks and Chrome OS are designed around the Chrome web browser, the experience is focused on web-based activities. This can include streaming videos, using the G Suite of productivity apps (ex. Gmail, Drive, Docs), and browsing your favorite news sites. These low cost PCs have ultra fast boot-up times, remarkable battery life, and a streamlined interface that's perfect for novice users.
If you're a fan of the Google ecosystem, Chromebooks will work seamlessly with your Google accounts, so that your calendar, photos, and emails are all synced between devices. They're also a great option for students on a budget who need a workhorse that they can use for homework, video lectures, and web research.

What is the difference between a Chromebook and a regular laptop?
Chromebooks and traditional laptops are both designed to be portable, but there are major differences between these two types of PCs.
Today's laptops are built around the Windows 10 OS, which is installed on an internal hard drive. You can also install productivity apps on this hard drive, play the latest PC games, record your own music, and much more. Many laptop PCs also come with an optical drive, where you can play DVDs and burn files onto CDs.
On the other hand, Chromebooks rely on the Chrome OS and the Chrome browser for everything. You can only run apps within a Chrome tab and access files via the cloud. There is limited or non-existent storage space on Chromebooks, which speeds up the entire computing experience, but can also be limiting for some users. Since you're not running programs from a drive, memory usage is extremely low. You can't install software on a Chromebook, but anything on the web is right at your fingertips.

Can a Chromebook replace a laptop?
For many users, a Chromebook can serve as a suitable replacement for a laptop. Chromebooks offer comparable (or better) battery life than the average laptop, a thinner/lighter body, and impressive integration with Google's apps. As Chrome OS improves, the Chromebook experience does as well. You can also access thousands of apps from the Chrome Web Store, including creativity apps, games, and much more.
