1. AMAZON: Acer C720 Chromebook
The Acer C720 Chromebook is a great buy for a student or average user who has a limited budget. Despite some limitations, Chromebooks remain a great laptop option for Google fans, and for people who already do a lot of work on documents in the cloud. It’s perfect for users who just want to surf the web, and do light document work. It’s unlikely to be a good fit for gamers or designers, however.
Price: $199.99 and up, depending on options selected
