Chromebooks have been going in and out of stock over the past year, initially from the rise of remote work at the start of the COVID pandemic. Component shortages and remote schooling also resulted in fewer options being available, but as we head into 2021, there are some decent options in the $200-300 range.
All of the models we've selected are fast enough to handle at least a few Chrome tabs and applications running at once, and when they're available, we try to include models with large screens. We have a dedicated guide for the best Chromebooks overall, but this list is solely focused on budget options that are actually in stock right now.
Welcome to Friday, everyone. It's finally the end of the week, so once again, I have more than a few noteworthy sales to share with everyone. First up is Quell Memento+, an enjoyable puzzle game that offers a relaxing experience. Next, I have G30 - A Memory Maze, and this is a minimal puzzler where you'll piece together the story of a person suffering from a cognitive disorder. Last but not least is Underworld Office, a gorgeous visual novel where your choices matter. As always, I've highlighted all of the interesting titles in bold green text in order to make discovery easier.
There's a little tip making the rounds today: If you pick up a used Galaxy S20 somewhere like Swappa or eBay, where they run around $500, you can get yourself a brand new Galaxy S21 for just $100 more. That's because Samsung's trade-in values for the smaller Galaxy S20 are outrageous, earning you $700 toward an $800 phone.
The Samsung ecosystem spreads far and wide beyond the Galaxy S21 or smartwatches or even fridges. For example, the SmartThings Cam is a simple little indoor guard that does much of the things comparable security cameras in 2021 can do. But where else can you get one for $20?
When it comes to chargers, smaller usually means less powerful, but that's not always the case. RAVPower is offering a 2-pack of some pretty small 20W fast chargers with USB-C ports for $17.89 after two coupons, making this a pretty good deal if you need a couple of extra chargers around.
Bose is one of the big names in premium noise-cancelling headphones, but if you can't quite stomach the $380 MSRP for a new set, you're in luck. A certified refurbished set of Bose Noise Cancelling 700 headphones is just $239.96 with a coupon code right now, making this the lowest price we've seen for these cans.
Welcome to Wednesday, everyone. Even though the early months of the year tend to be slow, I still have a few standout sales to share with everyone today. First and foremost, you can pick up the fantastic adventure game Old Man's Journey for a buck, so don't miss out on this one if you've yet to play. Next, I have Twinfold, an enjoyable puzzle game from Kenny Sun. Last but not least is Heal: Pocket Edition, an atmospheric point and click adventure where obscurity drives the narrative. As always, I've highlighted all of the interesting titles in bold green text in order to make discovery easier.
