This year hasn't been a great one for Chromebook deals because Chromebooks have been in huge demand this year. Millions of people newly working from home — not to mentions tens of millions of kids trying to learn from home on dinky little school-issued laptops — created a massive Chromebook shortage earlier this year. Many popular Chromebooks are still backordered clear into 2021, especially education models, so if you trust your kid not to throw their laptop against a wall, this is the Black Friday deal to buy your kid or your spouse or your grandma.

The best Chromebook for everyone at the best price yet
This Chromebook is less than an inch bigger than the C330 but it packs powerful internals, a 13.3-inch touchscreen, upwards-facing speakers, and long battery life. It was already a great value, now even better with its first major sale.
I have loved the Flex 5 since I reviewed it this spring, and it's been my go-to Chromebook ever since. The webcam looks decent for the price and has a privacy cover you can slide over it, there's a decent variety of ports so you won't immediately need a USB-C hubcharger. The 1080p touchscreen makes it easy to simply swipe through notifications and scroll through endless Amazon search results as I look for new power banks and chargers to play with.
The Flex 5's starting price of $410 was already one of the best deals in Chromebooks — a backlit keyboard, a good-looking screen, and a 10th Gen i3 for $400 is nothing to sneeze at — and seeing it down to $350 into Amazon's Deal of the Day
