According 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.)
