Take $70 Off Our Favorite 2-in-1 Chromebook

  • MORE

Anyone shopping for an affordable laptop for basic every day computing can benefit from owning a Chromebook. That's why we're excited to share this deal on our favorite 2-in-1, the Asus Chromebook Flip C434 with you. It's the best Chromebook you can buy at the moment and for a limited time, it's getting a price cut.

Currently, Office Depot has the Asus Chromebook Flip C434 on sale for $499.99. Traditionally, this Chromebook is priced at $569.99, so that's $70 off and the lowest price we've ever seen on Asus' new Chromebook.

The base model, which is the same model that won our Editor's Choice award, features a 14-inch, 1080p touchscreen, Core m3-8100Y CPU, 4GB of RAM, and 64GB of eMMC storage. That may not sound like a lot of muscle power, but it provided enough brawn to let us open 18 Google Chrome tabs and watch four 1080p streams simultaneously without any lag. (The only time we hit minor lag is when we switched tabs).

A lot of Chromebooks suffer from dim displays, but the C434 has a bright and vivid 14-inch 1080p touchscreen LCD. With a peak rating of 286 nits, the Flip 434's screen is more luminous than the average Chromebook (235 nits).

The laptop's island-style keyboard offered a solid typing experience and the speakers provided ample audio for a small room. Even better, the laptop lasted for 9 hours and 58 minutes in our battery test.

Now at an all time low price, we heartily recommend this Chromebook under $500 to anyone looking to make the jump to the barebones Google Chrome OS.
