August is here and Chromebook deals are expected to pick up steam. For bargain shoppers in need of a laptop for work or back-to-school, a Chromebook is one of the best budget laptops to buy. 

Currently, Amazon has the Google Pixelbook Go on sale for $899. Normally, this Chromebook retails for $999, so that's $100 in savings. Rarely on sale, it's the lowest price we've ever seen for this laptop and one of the best Chromebook deals in town. 

This model packs a 13.3-inch (1920 x 1080) display, a 1.3 GHz Core i5- 8200Y dual-core CPU, 16GB of RAM and 128GB SSD. 

As we note in our Google Pixelbook Go review, it's one of the best Chromebooks to buy. We liked its bright display, solid performance and great battery life into a super-slim design. 

As with all Chromebooks, the Pixelbook Go includes an additional 15 GB of Cloud storage and unlimited Google Photos storage. Even better, you'll have access to 100GB of additional storage for 12 months via Google Perks. 

We review dozens of Chromebooks each year, and know which ones offer a great balance of value, performance and comfort. 

So if you want a basic work from home laptop or a rugged machine for the kids, here are the best Chromebook deals you can get right now.
