Target is offering a limited-time deal on an HP Chromebook, now available for just $199.99, just in time for students heading back to school.
In recent years, Chromebooks have become a popular laptop option for students and workers. While Chromebooks originally left a lot to be desired (generally suffered from poor battery life and a less than impressive user interface), manufacturers have now stepped up their game and made this type of device a great choice for many of us.
Chromebooks tend to be lightweight and extremely portable, perfect for a backpack or briefcase. However, they differ from many other laptops on the market because they run on ChromeOS, an operating system developed by Google to be less resource intensive than comparable operating systems, such as Microsoft Windows.
That means Chromebooks run apps from sources like Google Play. The ecosystem is vast, but if you need a specific type of third-party software, you should first check if the software is compatible with ChromeOS.
For students, everyday web browsing, and general tasks, however, Chromebooks can be a fantastic option. That extends to the HP Chromebook, which is currently on sale at Target.
Available in silver, this model sports a 14-inch anti-glare display, Intel Celeron N4020 processor, Intel UHD Graphics 600, 4GB of RAM, and 64GB of eMMC storage.
As the laptop runs ChromeOS, Google Assistant is included. HP says you can expect around 13 hours of battery life on a single charge.
Target is offering 38% off the Chromebook’s typical retail price of $319, a savings of $120 based on the new price of $199.
