Asus

Several Chromebooks are on sale this Amazon Prime Day 2019, which means these already cost-effective computers are going to be even more affordable.

Chromebooks are unique because they run on Chrome OS, which is an operating system developed by tech giant Google. Since Google is involved, these laptops work seamlessly with the company’s many applications, including Google Drive, Docs, Sheets, and more. Several big manufacturers in the computer industry have Chromebook models.

Chromebooks are great for students heading back to school who want an easy way to take notes during class, check emails, and complete assignments. Bargain hunters will also appreciate this low-cost alternative. And, consumer advocate and money expert Clark Howard recommends using a Chromebook for all of your record-keeping and financial transactions since the cloud storage protects you against getting infected by computer viruses, and it’s nearly impenetrable for malware.

Below, learn about all of the Chromebooks deals of Amazon Prime Day 2019.
