Several Chromebooks are once again expected to go on sale this Amazon Prime Day 2020, which means these already cost-effective computers are going to be even more affordable once more.
Chromebooks are unique because they run on Chrome OS, which is an operating system (OS) developed by tech giant Google. Since Google is involved, these laptops work seamlessly with the company’s many applications, including Google Drive, Docs, Sheets, and more. Several big manufacturers in the computer industry have Chromebook models.
Chromebooks are ideal for students heading back to school who want an easy way to take notes during class, check emails, and complete assignments. Bargain hunters will also appreciate this low-cost alternative. And, consumer advocate and money expert Clark Howard recommends using a Chromebook for all of your record-keeping and financial transactions, since the cloud storage protects you against computer viruses and it’s nearly impenetrable by malware.
Below, we’ve listed some of the products that we most expect to see discounts for Prime Day 2020, as well as whether there are any deals available now and how close they are to pricing from Prime Day last year.
