The list of reliable Chromebooks continues to grow rapidly, as there are options at basically any price category. And while the newly-announced crop of gaming Chromebooks are pretty great, the truth is that you don't need to spend more than $200 to get a fantastic device.

If you want a low-cost and reliable Chromebook to take with you anywhere, the HP Chromebook 14 is a great option. It may not feature the most powerful specs, but it'll still handle gaming, photo editing, and document processing.

This is evidenced by the latest deal on HP's Chromebook 14 (14a-na0226nr), which was released earlier this year. The $289 retail price is already enticing enough, but for Prime Day 2, you can save more than 40% and grab one for just $169 (opens in new tab)

For that, the Chromebook 14 offers a 14-inch HD (1366 x 768) display, along with up to 14 hours of battery life. HP also integrated its Fast Charge technology, allowing you to quickly juice up from 0% to 50% in just about 45 minutes. 

Powering the Chromebook 14 is Intel's Celeron N4120, which features the company's onboard UHD Graphics 600, so you'll be able to enjoy a bit of gaming or some photo editing. Paired with the N4120, HP offers 4GB of RAM and 64GB of eMMC storage, making this a fantastic option for one of the best student Chromebooks.

Port selection leaves a little bit to be desired, as the Chromebook 14 is equipped with dual USB Type-C ports, a single USB-A port, and a 3.5mm audio combo jack. But it's nice knowing you can plug in a docking station or one of the best USB-C hubs and still have access to the charging port on the other side.
