Chromebooks occupy a weird space between a full desktop experience and a workstation or laptop, as they’re running Chrome OS instead of Windows or another operating system. Most people don’t even know there are a lot of things Chromebooks can do.
Take HP’s Pro c645 Chromebook, for example, which is on sale for super cheap right now. Dropping $125 off the price, HP has it available for $299 with free shipping. Plus, you can earn some member rewards through HP and get an additional 5% off select accessories you grab with it.
Okay, so it may not be on our list of the best Chromebooks for 2021, but that doesn’t mean the Pro c645 Chromebook is not impressive — it is. It’s sleek and lightweight, perfect for lugging back and forth between home, work, and school. It has considerably more power than most Chromebooks, too, thanks to an AMD Athlon Silver 3050c processor with a 4MB cache and clock speeds from 2.3GHz to 3.2GHz. It also has integrated AMD Radeon graphics, 4GB of DDR4 SDRAM, and 32GB of eMMC storage.
The 14-inch narrow-bezel HD display runs at a native resolution of 1366 x 768, with a 250-nits brightness rating. A 720P HD webcam rests just inside the top bezel. Ports include two USB Super Speed Type-C, two Super Speed USB Type-A, a headphone and mic combo, an HDMI 1.4, and a microSD card slot. Intel AX200 Wi-Fi 6 ensures you have the latest wireless standard with excellent connectivity, plus there’s Bluetooth 5 onboard for syncing wireless peripherals. The whole thing is wrapped in a beautiful silver aluminum chassis.
Normally $424, HP is offering the Pro c645 Chromebook for $299, which is $125 off. You also get free shipping, HP rewards points, and 5% off select accessories — like a carrying bag, care plan, or monitor. Act soon — we don’t know how long this one is going to be available.
