With so many people working and learning from home these days, Chromebooks are a hot commodity. Acer's Chromebook Spin 713 would be a great choice even without being in our current predicament. It's a premium device with the hardware to match, but right now, Best Buy is offering it for a full $80 off, making this laptop a steal at $549.
For the first few years, Chromebooks were only worth buying if they were cheap as dirt. As Chrome OS has improved, so has the hardware. While Chrome OS is still more limited than Windows or macOS, there's an argument to be made for a nicer piece of hardware running Google's software. Not too nice, though. Chromebooks like the Pixelbook or Galaxy Chromebook are too expensive to be genuinely competitive. The Spin 713, on the other hand, is priced just right.
