Our Favorite Cheap Chromebook Is Now Just $179

  • MORE

Samsung's Chromebook 3 is the type of laptop that can be used for both school and entertainment. Small and sturdy, it's one of the best Chromebooks around.

Although Samsung is currently selling it for its standard $219.99 price, Walmart has it on sale for just $179. That's $40 off and the best price we've seen for this Chromebook all year. (Amazon had it for $10 less this morning, but that deal is already sold out).

Under the hood, the Chromebook 3 packs an 11.6-inch 1366 x 768 LCD, 1.6GHz Celeron N3060 CPU, 4GB of RAM, and a 16GB eMMC. While we're normally not fans of 1366 x 768 screens, the Chromebook 3 packs an exceptional display that's brighter than its competitors such as the Lenovo IdeaPad 100S and HP Stream 11. The Chromebook 3's ability to display realistic colors also puts other budget laptops to shame.

Design-wise, the laptop features a silky smooth palm rest as well as a rounded lip that keeps your wrists comfortable when typing for extended periods of time. Its hinge is strong and flexible and it packs all the ports you could need including USB 2.0, USB 3.0, HDMI, and a microSD card slot.

Walmart has no expiration date for its deal, but we don't expect this price to last too long.
