Samsung Chromebook

The $219 price and free shipping for Amazon Prime customers makes this one awful hard to pass up

We don't know how long this price will be valid, but if you've been thinking of giving a Chromebook a try, Amazon has the Samsung Chromebook for just $219. That's $30 cheaper than the price at Google Play, and if you're an Amazon Prime customer the shipping is free — saving you another $15 bucks from the usual online price.

The Samsung Chromebook comes with the dual-core Exynos 5250 processor, 2GB of DDR3 RAM and a 16GB SSD for storage. HMDI out and USB (2.0 and 3.0) make it easy to attach things like external displays or standard computer mice. The 11.6-inch matte finish display has a 1366x768 resolution, and the built-in SD card reader will pick up your media with no issues.

Chrome OS isn't for everyone, and right now it's not quite ready if you need your laptop and OS to help make a living, but for folks who use their laptop to surf the web and play around while relaxing on the couch, they really are a treat. And at this price, it's almost too-hard not to try it.
