'ZDNET Recommends': What exactly does it mean?

ZDNET's recommendations are based on many hours of testing, research, and comparison shopping. We gather data from the best available sources, including vendor and retailer listings as well as other relevant and independent reviews sites. And we pore over customer reviews to find out what matters to real people who already own and use the products and services we’re assessing.

When you click through from our site to a retailer and buy a product or service, we may earn affiliate commissions. This helps support our work, but does not affect what we cover or how, and it does not affect the price you pay. Neither ZDNET nor the author are compensated for these independent reviews. Indeed, we follow strict guidelines that ensure our editorial content is never influenced by advertisers.

ZDNET's editorial team writes on behalf of you, our reader. Our goal is to deliver the most accurate information and the most knowledgeable advice possible in order to help you make smarter buying decisions on tech gear and a wide array of products and services. Our editors thoroughly review and fact-check every article to ensure that our content meets the highest standards. If we have made an error or published misleading information, we will correct or clarify the article. If you see inaccuracies in our content, please report the mistake via this form.


Cyber Week 2020 Chromebook deals: HP, Samsung, Lenovo, and more (Update: expired)

The very best Black Friday, Cyber Monday 2020 deals on Chromebooks.
Written by Charlie Osborne, Contributing Writer

Update, Dec. 2: Black Friday and Cyber Monday 2020 are done and dusted. If you would still like to find business tech deals or the best products to buy, check out our ZDNet Recommends directory.

Despite the disruption caused by COVID-19, the shopping season has continued on as normal. 

There is a massive range of technology, electronics, and gadgets on sale over the course of Black Friday and Cyber Monday 2020, and with it, you can expect good deals on Chromebooks to surface. 

Chromebooks are minimalistic, highly-portable alternatives to traditional laptops. Google's ChromeOS is the standard operating system for these devices, which are most suitable for basic work tasks, email, and study. While Chromebooks are not generally suitable for resource-heavy applications, they have gained a following for budget-conscious users who need a device for remote work and travel. 

Below, ZDNet has compiled a list of the best Chromebook deals on offer. Chromebooks generally sell quickly on sales days and so as some deals end and others expire, we will continue to update -- so make sure to come back and check for new deals. 

To kick off Black Friday Chromebook deals, you can pick up an entry-level, affordable model over at Best Buy. The HP Chromebook is an 11.6-inch device sporting 32GB storage and 4GB RAM. 

Another fair deal at Best Buy is the Lenovo Chromebook Duet, a 10.1-inch Chromebook equipped with 128GB storage, 4GB RAM, and 2-in-1 functionality.

If you're looking for a Chromebook with higher technical specifications, Best Buy is offering a $200 discount off the Samsung Galaxy Chromebook. This $799 tablet sports a 13.3-inch 4K display, 265GB storage, and 8GB RAM. 

Walmart has decided to discount the Acer Chromebook 715 over Black Friday 2020. This Chromebook comes with a 15.6-inch display, an Intel Core i3 processor, 128GB storage, and 4GB RAM.

Over at eBay, you can pick up the Samsung Chromebook 4 for a $140 discount. This Chromebook sports an 11.6-inch display, 32GB storage, 4GB RAM, and inbuilt Google Assistant voice control features.
