The best cheap Chromebooks that are actually in stock right now

The ongoing lockdowns around the world have caused an uptick in demand for computers, especially laptops. Chromebooks are incredibly popular for their ease-of-use and competitive pricing, so if you can accomplish everything using just a web browser (and you don't already have a spare PC that can do the job), they're certainly worth looking into.

All of the models we've selected come enough horsepower to handle at least a few Chrome tabs and applications running at once, and most of them have large 14/15-inch screens. We have a dedicated guide for the best Chromebooks overall, but this list is solely focused on budget options with large screens that are actually in stock right now.

Asus's ROG phones have always been jam-packed with the best hardware you can think of, and it looks like this won't be different for the next smartphone in the series.

Asus Zenfone Max M2 is receiving Android 10

Asus significantly stepped up its update game last year and even started doing away with its custom Android skin, opting for an approach much closer to stock Android instead. While the latest phones are still first in line to receive the newest Android version, other handsets aren't left in the dust, either. The mid-range Zenfone Max M2, released back in December 2018 with Android 8.1 Oreo, can look ahead to its second major update to Android 10.

Asus releases an early Android 10 build for its mid-range ZenFone 5

Asus was relatively quick with its Android 10 rollout that reached the ZenFone 6 and 5Z in November, while the gaming-centric ROG Phone II got the update about a month back. With the flagships now covered, the Taiwanese brand wasn’t expected to extend the software coverage to older mid-rangers like the ZenFone 5, especially since the handset already got a major update last year. As it turns out, Asus is indeed working on its Android 10 update, and the developer version is already out.
