Ready to buy a laptop, but don’t need anything too fancy? You might be able to get away with buying an older Chromebook. These machines may not be the souped-up powerhouses you’d expect from Apple’s lineup or more expensive Windows laptops, but they’re still useful for those with light workloads or just for surfing the web and checking email.

A cheap Chromebook is a more affordable option than a regular laptop for popping in your bag for “emergency” computer use on vacation or even a main internet machine for elderly users. No matter your use case, most older Chromebooks are perfect for casual usage. There’s one especially great Chromebook you can get on sale today that should tick all the boxes.

As of April 23, get the Samsung Galaxy Chromebook 2 (Intel Core i3, 8GB RAM, 128GB eMMC) for just $349 at Best Buy. That’s a 50% discount and $350 off its normal price of $699.

This is an older model, as previously stated, so don’t expect it to be the zippiest machine — it relies on an older Intel Core i3-10110U processor from August 2019. While the Chromebook will get 10 years of automatic updates from Google, it’s important to understand that it will be quite slow in comparison to some of the more expensive Chromebooks on offer right now. But it’s still very much capable of handling a variety of tasks if you’re fine with remaining in the Google ecosystem.

This flame red Chromebook with touchscreen capabilities can handle smaller tasks with less bandwidth: browsing the internet, word processing, simple presentations, and streaming media. Just don’t expect it to be super fast. It’s still plenty viable to toss in your bag and go if you need something on hand to get work done, but be aware that you will need an internet connection to utilize it to its fullest.
