This is the absolute best Chromebook deal for Cyber Monday

Walmart may just have the best Chromebook deal this Cyber Monday. It has discounted Asus’ excellent Chromebook C425 by 40% bringing it down to $279 from its $449 street price. The deal seems to a Walmart-exclusive so far and is not available on any other retailer.

The Asus Chromebook C425 is for anyone who’s looking for a run-in-the-mill notebook without a touchscreen or any convertible tricks. It offers a 14-inch 1080p display that goes nearly edge-to-edge except for at the bottom. The model Walmart is selling for $279 runs on an Intel Core M3 chipset, 4GB of RAM, and 128GB of onboard storage.

On top of that, the Chromebook C425 has an all-aluminum exterior and a lightweight build weighing about 2.9 pounds (The MacBook Air measures 2.75 pounds). It also features Asus’ clever hinge design that lifts the display ever so slightly for a more comfortable typing experience. Speaking of which, it houses a backlit chiclet keyboard and a fairly wide touchpad for a Chromebook.

The Asus Chromebook C425 comes with plenty of ports as well. There are two USB Type-C 3.1 slots, a single USB-A, a standard headphone jack, and a microSD card slot for expanding the storage. Apart from that, it has a 720p webcam and the latest Bluetooth 5.0. On a single charge, the C425’s built-in 48 Wh battery is rated to last up to 12 hours.

For $170 less, the Asus Chromebook C425 is a steal if you’re in search of a traditional notebook. Unfortunately, there is only one color option at this price as the C425’s other, higher-end variants are not on sale yet. That may change soon though, so keep an eye on our deals section. Alternatively, you can check out Asus’ Chromebook C433 which offers a two-in-one design with a touchscreen and is currently selling for $160 less on Best Buy.

In case none of these match your requirements, there is a big selection of more laptop Cyber Monday deals you can browse. Amazon has up to 40% off on Chromebooks and similarly, Best Buy’s Cyber Monday Chromebook deals start at $119. Other than laptops, you will find deep discounts on headphones, phones, and smart home appliances in this year’s Cyber Monday sales.
