Best Chromebook deal this May

Ideapad Flex 5i (was £550, now £500)


We gave the Ideapad Flex five stars in our full review, and although this is an upgraded version, that doesn’t make this any less of a steal. It performs exceptionally well, and has a great screen to boot. As a 2-in-1, it’s got the 360 degree hinges that lets you flip it around and use it as a tablet. It’s also got a great battery life, the original version lasting a full 11 hours and 9 minutes before we had to reach for the charger.

The best Chromebook deals this May

1. Asus C223 11.6in Chromebook (was £199, now £120)


You're not going to get class-leading performance for this price, but the Asus C223 is a frill-free Chromebook for doing some light work or streaming. It also looks good and feels solid, while the 11.6in display is crisp, the battery life of just under 12 hours is reasonable and the speakers deliver a surprising amount of oomph. Just beware of its sluggish speed.

2. Ideapad Duet Chromebook 2-1 (was £300, now £280)

Another 2-1 on our list, but with good reason. It’s got a super sharp screen, and comes with a superb detachable keyboard. It’s a smaller but still very versatile tablet just as good for working from home as on trips or on the train. In our tests, we were impressed with its battery life too, lasting a full 16 hours and 14 minutes..

3. Acer Chromebook 311 (was £204; now £170)

We were impressed with the build quality in this Acer, with it providing a rugged alternative to many sleek and fragile options out there. The battery life is also fantastic, clocking in at 12hrs of continuous video playback during our tests, however general performance and display quality aren't as good as other Chromebooks on this list. If you're a bit clumsy in your day-to-day and just want a laptop that'll do the job, this Acer is great value for well below £200.

4. HP 14b-na0005na 14in Chromebook (was £400, now £280)

It may not have the fastest processor, but the HP 14b Chromebook is a practical, well-equipped laptop. This silver surfer comes with 4GB of RAM and 64GB of eMMC storage, as well as a pair of USB-C ports and a microSD slot. It has a decent 14in IPS Full HD display and stereo Bang & Olufsen speakers as well.
