Best Buy has a fantastic deal on the ASUS Chromebook that you can't miss, especially if you're looking for a new laptop or replacement. Chromebooks are great for anything you need a Windows or Mac laptop for, and the ASUS Chromebook is one of the better models out there right now. Normally, it would cost you $299 if you had to pay the full retail price. However, Best Buy is currently offering it for half price, saving you $150 and letting you pay just $149 instead.

That's a great offer, isn't it? This model of the ASUS Chromebook comes with 64GB of storage and 4GB of RAM. It also has a 14-inch FHD display and is powered by a MediaTek Kompanio 520 processor, making it very suitable for multitasking and everyday tasks.

Thanks to NVIDIA GeForce NOW, you can also use this laptop for gaming. We don't usually recommend using a Chromebook for gaming. After all, they're not really designed to offer the specs you'd expect from a gaming laptop. However, GeForce NOW does offer official support for Chromebooks, and GeForce NOW allows you to stream games in the cloud to your Chromebook, so you don't need to install anything or run anything locally. It works well, and lets you run games at high settings with a Priority or Ultimate membership.

ASUS Chromebooks also have a card reader that supports microSD, SD, SDHC, and SDXC cards for file transfers. Moreover, it also has a headphone jack. Best of all, it is 0.72 inches thick and weighs only about 3.2 pounds. It has a battery life of up to 15 hours, which makes it a great choice for students and working professionals alike.
