Chromebooks are some of the most affordable computing options out there these days, and now that the Acer Chromebook 14 is on sale at Walmart, it's definitely worth your consideration. This model sells for up to $300 and can be found priced at $250 via other retailers like Newegg, but right now you can pick it up bundled with a protective sleeve for just $179. That saves you over $70 off the next best price we could find for it, and many of the other retailers don't even include the sleeve with its purchase. Shipping is free.

Released earlier this year, this Chromebook is equipped with an Intel Atom x5-E8000 quad-core processor, 14-inch HD display, 4GB RAM, 32GB storage capacity, and it even comes with a protective sleeve to keep it safe during travel.

Chromebooks are built to accomplish the basics of computing more efficiently than computers have in the past, though with this model's Google Play Store integration, you can accomplish a lot more than what any regular computer can do. Download apps straight from the store to your device so you can easily access your favorites, not just picks like Instagam and FaceBook but games too. You can also use the Google Play Store to quickly purchase and view digital movies, tv shows, and music.

The Acer Chromebook 14 is designed with a stylish 100% metal chassis and packs in an Intel Atom x5-E8000 quad-core proocessor, along with 4GB RAM, 32GB storage, and a 3950mAh rechargeable battery that can keep it powered up for up to 12 hours at a time. It also features a 14-inch HD ComfyView widescreen LED-backlit display. While 32GB of storage isn't a lot of space to save all your important files, you can add a 128GB microSD card for $21 today and score triple the amount of storage space in the process.
