Save on Chromebooks with these Best Buy Deals

From Samsung Chromebooks to HP Chromebooks, there's something for everyone this year

Chromebook

Chromebooks are quickly becoming the hot item for people looking for a plug-and-play experience that just works. Running Chrome OS, users will find some familiar features if they are just to Windows. A file explorer and native office-like apps are all taken care of by the Google Suite, all of these programs run side-by-side with GDrive to provide convenient cloud storage that can be accessed from any smart device, PC, or Mac.

For those worried about keeping all of their files, images, and more in the cloud, it’s actually safer than leaving important documents on physical storage. Granted, you’re files aren’t local, but what if your local storage ever failed and you lost your information? Even if the worst did happen and Google’s cloud storage servers ever failed, they’ll have backup servers and a plethora of security protocols to ensure your data is safe and on-demand 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.

The idea behind the Chromebook is for it to predominantly be a cloud-powered device, which means less hardware needed resulting in an attractive price point. If you are currently part of the Google ecosystem with Android or a Gmail address, there’s nothing stopping you from going for a Chromebook, providing you’re only doing light tasks such as web surfing, using office apps, or playing Google Play Store games. If you need to carry out some heavy gaming or video/photo editing tasks, we’d advise against a Chromebook.

From basic specifications to Intel i5 CPUs with touch screens and 16GB DDR4 RAM, there’s a Chromebook here for everyone.
