Acer Chromebook 11 is $169.99 at

Updated on 17 June 2018

Acer CB3-111According to my searches, the Acer Chromebook 11 CB3-111 is now the cheapest laptop you can buy in the USA and it beats the cheapest Windows laptop by nearly $30. Importantly, the Acer CB3 isn’t a poor laptop. In my full review for Notebookcheck I was impressed with the build quality and battery life. Performance is on-par with all the other Celeron N-series Chromebooks out there and the keyboard is fine.

At $169 the CB3-111 makes a great Christmas present. If you’re looking something for the kitchen, car, holiday home or even as a safe option for public WiFi usage (use the HTTPS Everywhere and Zenmate plugins and switch to the Google DNS to protect your privacy.)

Here’s a section of the review where I predicted Q4 offers! Read the full review at

We’ve tested a number of Chromebooks but the CB3-111 appears to be the bargain of the bunch. It returns solid battery life and performance figures for this class and does it without any noise…Chromebooks are an easy-to-use laptop option for those that don’t need professional-level applications but the Acer Chromebook 11 CB3-111 has turned out to be a real bargain. Watch out for offers during Q4 214.

    I picked up this Chromebook on Black Friday at Best Buy for $149… I love this Chromebook (First one) and I am very happy with it, it’s a great buy even at $169 for first time users (like myself) who are casual users!
