Buy a cheap Chromebook, not a crappy Android tablet, this Cyber Monday!

While there are a decent few cheap Android tablets worth buying, if
you’re after a good all-round lapable device this Cyber Monday, you’re better off checking out some Chromebook
deals
.

With Android app support having arrived on many Chrome OS
devices, and a vastly superior web experience on a device that’s
actually built from the ground up for browsing, the vast majority
of would-be Android tablet buyers would likely be happier with a
cheap Chromebook. After all, even Google isn’t making Android
tablets anymore.

Especially at the low end, you’re likely to find a better user
experience with longer-term support in the Chromebook world
compared to bargain-bin Android slates.

Amazon’s Cyber Monday are still live, offering up to 43% off on
Chromebooks from big names like HP, Acer, ASUS and Samsung.

The cheapest of the bunch is the Intel Celeron-powered Acer Chromebook 11, yours for
$125, a pretty generous 43% discount. We’ve covered a few Android
tablets at price points like that over the years, and it hasn’t
been pretty. By contrast, the Chromebook 11 comes with the recommendation of our own Jerry
Hildenbrand
.

At the other end of the spectrum, ASUS’s higer-end Chromebook Flip C434 is on sale
for 18% off, and boasts a screen that can be folded fully flat for
tablet use, as well as software support until 2024. If that’s too
rich for your blood, Acer’s lean-and-mean Chromebook Spin 11 comes with a
similarly flippable display and a smaller form factor for $300, 25%
off the standard price.

All six offers are good until midnight PST Tuesday, meaning
they’ll turn back into a pumpkin (the deals, that is, not the
products themselves), once Cyber Monday is over.

It’s definitely worth checking out the full range of deals while
you still can.
