If you're like me, you've been thinking of picking up a Chromebook as a backup laptop for awhile, but $200-$300 is just a little more than you want to spend. If that's the case for you, then today's the time to strike, with Amazon offering a refurb of one of the best models out there for only $150.
While most Chromebooks utilize underpowered ARM processors, the Acer C720 has been lauded for its best-in-class battery life and speedy performance, powered by an honest-to-goodness Intel chip. It's also the Commerce Team's choice for Best Chromebook and Best Cheap Laptop. Even if Chrome OS doesn't check all of your boxes, this laptop is perfectly capable for word processing, web browsing, and the like, and it costs less than your average monthly cable bill. [Amazon]
