Google is doing all it can to make your next laptop a Chromebook - from sprucing up its looks and functionality to roping in big-name programs like Minecraft and Steam, you can't say the company isn't trying. So, if buying one is on your agenda during Amazon's Big Prime Deal Days this week, let us help you sift through all the options out there.

Best Prime Day Chromebook Deals

Amazon has selected a handful of Chromebooks to be official Big Prime Deals, but not all of them will live up to the expectations you might have for how a computer should perform. Through our own research and expertise, we've filtered out those deals and have scooped up a couple of others that aren't explicitly "Big Prime Deals" to help you get the most out of your purchasing dollar.

It might have a forgettable name, but the HP Chromebook Laptop features 2023's Intel Processors. You can save $40 off the N200 model or get the Chromebook Plus model with the N305 for $20 off.

What is the best Chromebook to buy during Big Prime Deal Days?

ChromeOS has long been top-of-mind in the budget laptop category and the occasional deal here and there would mean you could get an extremely cheap, but halfway-decent one for under $100. Well, it's 2023, and our standards are going up - as they should - but prices are, too. So, we've picked these devices spanning the space under the slightly arbitrary ceiling of $400.

  • Acer's Chromebook 317 (review via Android Police) lets you stretch out with a 17.3-inch 1080p display. It's got one of the better Intel Celeron chips you can get and comes with 128GB of storage built-in. There was a small spike in time for Prime Big Deal Days, but prices have been falling over the course of a few months.
  • There are two configurations of HP's Chromebook 15.6" (15at-nb000), both featuring Intel's latest entry-level processors (which means you'll get the longest software update window with this pick). You can save $40 on the N200 model or $20 on the N305 model (co-branded as Core i3 and eligible for Chromebook Plus perks).
  • Lenovo's Chromebook Duet 3 (or 3i in some regions) brings us our first convertible tablet design along with a Snapdragon 7c Gen 2, 8GB of RAM, and 128GB of storage. Average pricing has fallen about $50 since late summer, but you can pick it up for an even better $339 if you're looking at the right hours.
  • Finally, we once again head to Acer for the Chromebook Spin 314. It runs on an Intel Pentium Silver N6000 with 8GB of RAM and 128GB of storage. It also comes with a free carrying case. You can get $30 off recent pricing with this official Prime Big Deal.

How we chose these Chromebook deals

Amazon is full of Chromebooks on offer, but many of them just don't stack up to what ChromeOS is capable of in 2023 whether because they're old or they've been modified by a third party. At Pocket-lint, we sort through every offer to make sure that you're getting new condition Chromebooks that will be supported with software updates for years to come. We also make sure that prices actually do reflect a real sale - no hike-and-spike nonsense here.

If these deals aren't to your liking, we strongly recommend checking out what you can find in the new Chromebook Plus portfolio. They've just launched, so there may not be any discounts in time for Big Prime Deal Days, but you may just see a couple of dips in time for Black Friday.
