Acer's Chromebook 15 (CB515-1HT) is now available for $399

ASUS Chromebook Flip C101PA review: The best 10" Chromebook you can buy is also a good Android tablet

We've all heard the phrase "jack of all trades, master of none," and there's a distinctly negative connotation to it. The more something tries to do, the worse it is at any one task. Unfortunately, it still holds true today. But some products, like this one, are starting to toe the line.

ASUS' latest Chromebook Flip C101PA combines performance with excellent build quality in a convertible package. So not only do you get a great Chromebook, to a certain degree, you also get a good Android tablet. And it will only cost you $299 — and a somewhat disappointing screen.

Here's where to pre-order the Google Pixelbook

Google's new Pixelbook looks kinda slick. I think the chances are pretty high that I'm going to grab one. At least, if the keyboard on it is any good. But there are a lot of places to pre-order the new Chromebook up outside the Google Play store. For your convenience (and mine, later) we've put together some of the spots you can pick it up into a nice little list.

[Deal Alert] Get a refurbished ASUS Chromebook Flip C100PA for $149.99 from Woot

Chromebooks are still some of the best value computers on the market, mostly thanks to Chrome OS' ability to run well even on underpowered hardware. The ASUS Chromebook Flip C100PA wasn't exactly high-end when it was released in 2015, but even in 2017 it's a decent budget computer. You can now buy one for $149.99 from Woot, a decent savings over the $190-$250 that other stores currently sell it for.

Google hasn't been selling the Chromebook Pixel for a while now, but it looks like there's a new one on the horizon called the Pixelbook. This flagship Chromebook will sport some very nice hardware, but it won't be cheap; pricing will top out at a whopping $1749. Yes, $1749 for a Chromebook, and you'll have to pony up another $99 for the "Pixelbook Pen."

Acer Chromebook 15 hands-on: One big Chromebook

Chromebooks are mostly clustered toward the bottom of the market, and that often means the materials are unimpressive, features are lacking, and the build quality is mediocre. Acer has announced an updated version of its 15-inch Chromebook at IFA 2017 and it's none of that. This device has been slimmed down compared to the last Acer CB15, it has better battery life (up to 12 hours), and it's gained an aluminum frame. You're still not going to get the best hardware out there, but this Chromebook could be just what some people want.

[Who needs iMessage?] Someday you may be able to send and receive SMS using your Chromebook

A bit over a month ago, we heard that Chromebooks might be getting SMS notification support via something called SMS Connect, which was exciting news. The folks over at Chrome Unboxed, who initially discovered this coming functionality, just found a bit more information on the subject. Not only will we be able to see when we get an SMS, but we might even be able to read and reply to them, all from the comfort of your Chromebook.
