Few machines can match the portability and utility of a Chromebook, especially if you’re comparing by weight. But the HP Chromebook X360 goes above and beyond with two-in-one features that make it not only a Chromebook but also a tablet. Take this bestselling lightweight laptop with you on the go for browsing the web, checking email and performing lightweight tasks. It’s a steal at $199 (down from $329).
Why is this a good deal?
Aside from the obvious — that this is 40% off — it’s also the lowest price you can find on this brand-new model, although a few outlets are selling refurbished versions for less.
Why do I need this?
The name of the game is versatility, and this laptop excels at that. Whether you’re trying to wrap up some work or you just want to kick back and watch your favorite holiday movies, this Chromebook can do it all. The hinge rotates 360 degrees so that you can prop this up on its back or use the keyboard for writing up a report in Google Docs.
Internet worries? Never fear — the built-in Chrome operating system is designed to be both extremely efficient and safe while browsing the web, with malware and virus detection baked into the package. You can easily tether the Chromebook to an Android phone’s mobile internet connection too, so you don’t have to rely on sketchy Wi-Fi when you’re out and about. (It will likely work with iPhone too, but the ChromeOS is built to work best with the Android platform.)
The battery life is also quite impressive, clocking in at an average of over 13 hours on a single charge. Of course, it does all of this at an incredibly affordable price of just $199. If you’re looking for a computer that you can take with you on the go while leaving your main workhorse at home, this is a great option. While it isn’t great for gaming, as long as your internet connection is steady enough, you could use it as a mobile gaming machine by streaming through a service such as Amazon Luna.
What reviewers say
“Hands down the best laptop we have ever owned! Keeps the longest charge ever and is fast and exactly what we needed for homeschooling,” one parent said.
Another user wrote about how useful it is for tasks that require a lot of mobility: “I bought this as a dedicated machine to configure gateways. It is clean and simple to use and has minimal opportunities for misconfiguration or compromise. Delivers exactly as promised.”
Yet another happy reviewer called it “perfect for my everyday use.”
“The only thing I didn’t like is that the keyboard doesn’t have a light. I use mine at night, so I always have to have the room light on to see what I’m typing,” said another shopper.
