Chromebooks offer one of the most affordable computing experiences on the market these days, which is why picking one up can sound so tempting in the event you find a decent model on sale. For example, the Acer Chromebook R11 is normally sold for as much as $400 at various retailers, and while that's not much at all in comparison to some Mac or Windows laptops, today's price of $144.99 on refurbished models at Woot makes it much harder to turn down — especially when you consider that this is one of its lowest prices in history and a deal that won't be around tomorrow. We've seen these Chromebooks offered in refurbished condition via Acer's official recertified website for as low as $205.99, though they're no longer available there anymore.

While these Chromebooks aren't brand new, each one has been carefully inspected to ensure it's in good, working condition. Oftentimes, you can hardly notice the difference between a refurbished and brand new model, though that's not always the case. If you do receive a product you're not happy with, Woot's 90-day warranty on this item will help you with a return or replacement. Woot includes free shipping for those who log in with an Amazon Prime account during checkout, so you might want to start a free 30-day trial or be subject to the site's $6 shipping fee.

This model of Acer's Chromebook R11 is equipped with an Intel Celeron N3150 processor and is a 2-in-1 model that can flip between laptop and tablet mode with ease. That makes it a great pick for work and for fun like watching movies and playing games. It has an 11.6-inch HD touchscreen display along with 4GB RAM and a 16GB storage capacity that can be expanded inexpensively with a microSD card. If you don't have one handy at home already, you can pick up a 128GB microSD card for just $20 right now.

One of my favorite features of this Chromebook is its ability to access the Google Play Store. Not every Chromebook is able to do this either. It's capable of downloading Android apps straight from Google Play onto the computer or its microSD card, along with digital movies, music, books, and more. Google even includes 100GB of Google Drive space with its purchase.
