The Acer Spin 713 is one of our favorite Chromebooks It has a nice screen that you will find in a Chromebook at this price and the Intel i5 chip offers a lot of power for Chrome OS. Battery life is also good. Just make sure that Chrome OS depends on everything you want to do with your laptop See our Laptop Buying Guide for more tips on what works best for you.
This fun little Chromebook won’t win any prizes for speed or power, but we still like it and its price is reasonable. It has a small screen, but for its size it is high-resolution and 4 GB of RAM is sufficient for web browsing and casual use. This price is not unique to Black Friday; It’s been on sale for a while now, but it’s still a good deal.
This mid-range HP laptop has an Intel Core i5 chip, 8 GB RAM and a 256-GB SSD. That’s enough power for most people, but if you’re planning on editing photos and videos, you’ll want to look elsewhere. Also keep in mind that when shipped with Windows 10, it can be upgraded to Windows 11 for free.
Good shopping, Samsung
Samsung’s Galaxy Chromebook 2 (8/10, WIRED Recommends) is one of the best Chromebooks on the market. It has a solid, lightweight aluminum body with a build quality that surpasses many expensive laptops I’ve tested. The bright, color-rich screen isn’t as pretty as the original 4K model, but it’s still much better than most Chromebooks. The original Galaxy Chromebook is also on sale for 599 ($ 100 discount). It has impressive specs, but the battery life is not very good.
Amazon, Best Buy ($ 749)
The deal resumed in October, but it’s still pretty good. At one time, it was the most beautiful Chromebook on the market. Nowadays that award will probably go to the top Galaxy Chromebook, but it’s still a tough machine, especially the Core i5 model being sold here.
Nothing like the big screen will enhance the game of working from your home. The following monitors are the best deals of our choice.
Amazon, Good shopping
With a fast refresh rate (144 Hz) and support for both Nvidia G-Sync and AMD FreeSync, this curved monitor delivers smooth graphics. This is the lowest price we’ve seen on this monitor, and it’s a great option, especially for gamers.
Slightly lower than the G7 on top of the G3, the resolution has gone from wide QHD to full HD, but it still has the same refresh rate and AMD FreeSync support, and it’s less than half the price.
This is a pretty tough deal for a full HD monitor of this size. There’s AMD FreeSync support, plus HDR, something we don’t usually see at this price point.
Networking and router deals
No matter how fast your internet is, it can be faster. Upgrading your router is one of the best ways to upgrade your home internet experience. Below are our favorite deals, but be sure to read our guide to speed up your home internet and our best mesh router system guide for further advice.
We haven’t tested Netgear’s Nighthawk XR1000 gaming router, but it does provide support for reportedly impressive speeds, apps for iOS and Android, and Wi-Fi 6.
Target, Good shopping, Walmart
Google’s Nest Mesh system is easy to use and provides good coverage. It doesn’t support the new Wi-Fi 6 standard, but at this price, it’s still a good buy. If you don’t have a large space to cover, a single unit (router only) at Amazon is $ 139 ($ 30 discount).
Netgear, Best Buy (2-pack at $ 330)
The Netgear Orbi AX4200 is our favorite mesh system for the big house. It’s not the easiest to set up, but fortunately, you only have to do it once. When you’re done, you have a system that easily covers large spaces and delivers satellite nodes as fast as the main router.
