Chromebooks are usually quite cheap computers, ideal for students, especially the cheapest models on the market.
Amazon is holding a pretty aggressive round of deals, with hundreds of devices slashed in price in virtually every category, especially electronics, but also others like food and hygiene. They are called Spring Offers.
It is a good time to cover some of your needs, especially if you need to buy a new laptop, a cheap one, and it is that there’s a Chromebook on Amazon that’s on sale and it really is. This is the Lenovo Ideapad 3 Chromebook which costs only 150 euros temporarily.
It is obviously a basic model, but it uses Chrome OS as an operating system, a fairly light OS that works acceptably well even on computers with low resourcesbecause that’s exactly what it’s designed for.
In the image and likeness of Android, it has Google Play and all the applications that you can download from this storewhich are thousands and thousands, including those essential for studying and teleworking, such as Zoom, Office or the entire Google Docs suite.
For its price it is quite difficult to find a better alternative, unless you settle for a mini PC, which is another option, although the fact is that a laptop already comes with everything you need to work with it: screen (Full HD in this case also), keyboard and touchpad.
One of the few drawbacks that can be put on this Ideapad 3 Chromebook that Amazon has lowered is that it has little storage, just 32 GB in eMMC format, which is fast but quite scarce and practically forces you to expand the capacity of one of the two viable ways: either by means of a microSD memory card or with a pendrive of a lifetime, whichever you prefer.
For the rest, with a Mediatek processor and 4GB of RAM, it should be able to run any Chromebook app in a more than worthy way, since, as we have mentioned, it is a much lighter OS than Windows.
As it is sold by Amazon, whether or not you have an Amazon Prime account, you save on shipping costs and you will have your purchase at home in 2-3 business days at the most, probably less.
