The Acer Chromebook CB3 is now $179 at Amazon.com. There have been cheaper laptops in the past but the CB3-111 is not a piece of crap. This is a stable, productive, 7-hour laptop with a reasonable keyboard. It is a laptop that can be integrated into the business world and education markets just as easily as it can be used on a lap at home. It’s using what can be argued as one of the most stable, secure and clean mainstream operating systems available. It comes with all the software you need plus 100GB of storage, for free. I have one under my fingers right now.
