Black Friday is the best part of a month away but this doesn’t mean that some retailers, including Target, are already leveraging the name of the shopping event to promote deals in electronics.
One deal ZDNET has found is for an Acer 11.6″ convertible Chromebook laptop. Typically, you would expect to pay $249, but Target has reduced the price to $99 for a limited time, saving you 60% based on the usual RRP.
The Acer Chromebook, now under $100, will suit you if you need a Chromebook but are looking to keep the price point as low as possible. This device operates on ChromeOS and comes with an 11.6″ HD IPS touchscreen display capable of a 1366×768 resolution. When it comes to internal specifications, the Chromebook is equipped with an AMD A-Series dual-core processor, 4GB RAM, 32GB SSD storage, and AMD Radeon R5 Graphics.
This Acer model has a 360-degree hinge, allowing you to use the device as a typical laptop, a tablet, or in a tent style. Furthermore, the Chromebook has an inbuilt microphone and camera.
While the specifications aren’t the highest available on the market by a long way, this affordable Chromebook would suit students or commuters who want a lightweight, convertible device. Keep in mind, however, that you might need to check the compatibility of the software before purchasing if there are specific apps you will need to use.
