Chromebooks are a great alternative to laptops running Windows or OS X, and are typically much cheaper too. We’re a great fan of Chromebooks here at Expert Reviews and they’ve gained significant popularity over recent years.
It’s usually pretty easy to find a cheap Chromebook, especially considering that most retail for around £200, but you might need a little bit of help separating the good from the bad, especially when you’re bombarded with deals in the lead up to Black Friday. That’s where we come in: we’ve scoured the cheapest and best Chromebook devices on offer during Black Friday 2017.
If you’re not too fussed about price, read our regularly updated roundup of the best Chromebooks money can buy. Likewise, if you’re after something Windows-based, check out our rundown of the best laptop deals
The best Chromebook deals on Black Friday 2017
1. Asus Chromebook Flip (Was £600, now £430)
It’s not the cheapest on this list – you’ll want the Chromebook below for that – but that’s not to say the Asus Chromebook Flip isn’t worth your attention. In fact, it’s one of the better Chromebook on this list, and you’re paying for top shelf quality. For starters, there’s a 12.5in Full HD display paired with an Intel Core M3-6Y30 processor, 4GB of RAM and 64GB of onboard flash storage. On, and the screen flips around, too – woohoo!
2. Asus C300 Chromebook (Was £250, now £130)
Asus’ C300 is the cheapest Chromebook on this list. Its specs may not be as beguiling as the others, but for just £150 it’s a no-brainer – it’s lightweight and small enough to justify lugging it around all day. Yes, you can only buy it in this garish blue colour, but who cares when it’s this cheap?
3. Acer Chromebook R11 (Was £200, now £150)
Acer’s dinky 11.6in Chromebook might not look special, but it’s ludicrously cheap right now. Perfect as a second device, or something you can lug about in your rucksack all day, it features an Intel Celeron N2840 processor, 2 GB of RAM and 16GB of onboard flash storage for just £150. A steal.
4. HP Chromebook 11 (Was £198, now £180)
This small 11.6in Chromebook isn’t to be trifled with. With a quoted battery life of 12.5hrs, you can get a good work day’s use out of it on a single charge, and then some. It features an Intel Celeron N3060 processor, 2GB of RAM and a 1,366 x 758 display.
5. Dell Chromebook 11 (Was £240, now £204)
This Dell Chromebook has had a small reduction in price. It features an 11.6in display, Intel Celeron N3060 processor, 4GB of RAM and 16GB eMMC storage. It’s a well-built laptop and is ideal for work on the go.

6. Acer Chromebook 14 (Was £250, now £180)
Acer’s newest Chromebook 14 is one of the best Chrome OS-powered laptops on the market right now, mostly thanks to its brilliant build quality. The smooth aluminium chassis is gorgeous and makes the whole thing feel much more premium than the low price it’s currently going for. If you’re up for something a little speedier, the 4GB version is on sale for £280.
