This year's Black Friday and Cyber Monday sales came with more Chromebook deals than we could ever dream of, but there are still quite a few lingering offers to enjoy if you missed last week's festivities. Keep reading for all of the best Chromebook offers of the month and get your hands on one of these laptops before the holidays sneak up on you. 

Chromebooks make great gifts for folks of all ages, namely because of their versatility. Many models have enough power to handle most tasks with ease, while others may be compact enough to throw into a backpack or briefcase. They're often exceptionally durable as well, and some can even be converted into a tablet with a single flip-and-fold motion. Perhaps most importantly, Chromebooks are cheap. Most of these laptops fall in the $200-$500 range, but we've been known to find deals that drop the price to $100 or less!

FAQ

What's the difference between a Chromebook and a laptop?

Unlike regular laptops, Chromebooks run on Chrome OS, a web-based operating system that's lightweight, simple, and secure. Instead of being able to download third-party software, like you would with a traditional laptop, you have to download apps through the Google Play store. All of this means that, although they aren't as powerful or as customizable, Chromebooks are inherently affordable and easy to use. 

Once you pick out your cheap laptop, you can use that leftover cash for essential Chromebook accessories such as a wireless keyboard, additional storage, or a pair of stylish earbuds.
