Cyber Monday sales are filled withon Chromebooks, laptops, touchscreens, 2-in-1 devices and more. You might not find a better deal until Black Friday 2022.
How do I choose between laptops and Chromebooks? If you primarily do light computing tasks, such as visiting websites, writing documents, or videoconferencing, an inexpensive Chromebook is a great choice.
