On a budget, but looking for a device that can pass a premium? (Well, in a moment). This is not the newest or by any means the largest Chromebook on the market, but a steep $ 200 discount may very well make this a deal worth checking out. The ASUS Chromebook Flip C433 was a strange participant in the Chrome OS room when it followed up its more premium sibling, the Flip C434. None of these devices really took off, but the C433 felt like an attempt at a premium device built with budget parts. There is nothing wrong with that concept if the lower build quality results in a cheaper price. The problem is that the C433 was priced just below the far more premium C434. The 2-in-1 Chromebook is designed mostly with plastic, and you can tell when you start working on it. Still, ASUS felt confident enough to price the Core m3, 4GB / 64GB model at $ 529. Au! If you̵
OK, so this Chromebook is not a bad device. It’s simply overpriced for what you get and all the corners that ASUS cuts into the building. That said, it’s still a sleek Chromebook and offers decent internals in a versatile 2-in-1 form factor. Because the value is relevant to the price, this Chromebook just got a lot more appealing thanks to Best Buy’s Deal of the Day. Normally $ 529, you can beat $ 200 off the price tag and score a Chromebook that can pass as a flagship without spending flagship money. It is powered by the same 8th generation Core m3 as the Flip C434 or the base model Pixelbook, and it packs 4 GB of RAM and 64 GB of storage. This is not a powerhouse, but it is plentiful for the casual user who just wants a good device to surf the web, do some banking and maybe even play some Stadia.
The Full HD 1080P screen is easy on the eyes, and it even has a backlit keyboard that is more than we can say for some devices that target the Chrome OS segment in the middle. Being a 2-in-1, this is a Chromebook with a touch screen, but do not intend to use a USI pen. You need something a little newer if you want to utilize a universal pen. If you absolutely can not spend more than $ 350, but still want a Chromebook that looks and feels better than the price tag, this is probably the best option. It’s a Deal of the Day, so you have to grab it now, because tomorrow it’s gone.
