The tablets are going fast, don't miss your chance to save big
Just because Amazon Prime Day is officially over doesn't mean you still can't find great deals on some of the top tablets. Some of the deals you'll find after Prime Day, may not have discounts that are as deep as they were during the event, but that doesn't mean there still aren't deals worth checking out. In fact, Samsung, Lenovo, and yes, even Apple, still have great deals going on right now, making it easy to save money on your next tablet purchase.
At under $200, the Lenovo Slim 3 is a budget-friendly option that won’t disappoint
Finding a new, affordable, 14-inch Chromebook for under $200 can be a big ask. Right now, though, Best Buy is offering the Lenovo IdeaPad Slim 3 Chromebook for $169, already a huge leap down from its retail price of $319.
A simple-to-use yet versatile Intel-powered 2-in-1 that's great for the basics
If you're looking into cheaper Chromebooks, it's hard to beat Lenovo in terms of value for your money. While the brand offers a wide range of Chromebooks for every budget, their latest IdeaPad Flex 3i offers an entry-level 2-in-1 that aims to deliver a solid all-around machine at a price point that doesn't break the bank. Even at the standard $350 price, it's a budget-friendly laptop that works well in just about all scenarios. Now that it's getting its first price drop only months after it was released, the IdeaPad Flex 3i is one of the best Chromebooks for the value.
Your eyes will thank you after your next 8-hour marathon
As a kid, I remember going through ads in PC Magazine and seeing all those top-of-the-line laptops displayed. I would read down the list of specs: a 266MHz Pentium II processor, 32MB of RAM, a cutting-edge TFT active matrix display — and yes, I know I’m dating myself here. And I knew that the sticker shock at the end of the listing would hit me harder than a Shohei Ohtani fastball. Sure enough, I’d see figures as high as $5,500, and I would keep dreaming.
A touch of savings brings two versatile Chromebooks under $300
When it comes to finding a good Chromebook, you can always bet on Lenovo to deliver a great product. From the Flex 5i to the Chromebook Duet, their Chrome OS devices offer a great range of performance and versatility for any budget.
We compare the versatile Flex 5i and the mobile Galaxy Chromebook Go to help you make the right decision
Lenovo's Chromebook Flex 5i is one of the best Chromebooks on the market today thanks to its versatile convertible build, snappy performance, and seriously competitive pricing. The Samsung Galaxy Chromebook Go is another great option, especially if you're shopping for one of the best cheap Chromebooks out there. It's compact and mobile, it comes with optional 4G LTE connectivity for staying in touch even outside of Wi-Fi range, and it's also very much on the affordable side of the laptop market. These Chromebooks share some similarities, but they're designed for different users. We compare them to help you make the right decision when it comes time to buy.
It's a murky 'No' with a splash of 'Yes.'
Lenovo has been a household name in the world of laptops for quite some time now. But in 2011, it dipped into the tablet market, attempting to take it by storm. And while its initial attempt may not have been entirely successful, it has since managed to carve out a respectable place over the years. One Lenovo device that stands out is the M10 Plus (3rd Gen) tablet, a gem that offers decent performance at a low cost.
The writing was already on the wall
Google makes some of the best Google Assistant-powered smart displays. There are also offerings available from Lenovo, JBL, and LG in a different form factor or at a lower price point, though admittedly, third-party Assistant display options were always limited. Until now, non-Google smart displays provided mostly the same experience as the Google Nest Hub or the Hub Max. But going forward, this won't be the case as the big G won't provide software updates to any third-party smart displays.
A lightweight 2-in-1 Chromebook with USB-C is the real flex here
Chromebooks have made great strides over the years, becoming go-to budget-friendly options for those in need of a simple, no–hassle laptop that handles the basics. Offering a great alternative to Windows laptops thanks to Google's suite of free apps, including Google Docs and Google Sheets, Chromebooks are great for students and other users looking to keep it cheap while still getting the functionality of a full-fledged machine.
You get a 120Hz display, an 8-core processor, and 128GB of storage
If you're looking for the best cheap Android tablet available right now, the Lenovo Tab P11 Pro (Gen 2) is worth your consideration. It has features you won't typically find on a budget tablet, such as an 11" OLED 120Hz display with Dolby Vision support, an 8-core Mediatek processor, a 4-speaker JBL system with Dolby Atmos support, and 128GB of storage. It's typically priced at the upper end of the budget range, at $300, but right now, it's on sale for just $219.
It won't turn many heads, but the M10 Plus is a great media tablet at a reasonable price
Not long ago, if someone asked for a 10-inch tablet recommendation under $200, I would have told them, without hesitation, to get an Amazon Fire 10 HD. It had the best mix of value, performance, and display quality in the category. Sure, they'd have to install the Play Store manually, but similarly-priced Android competitors couldn't compete on functionality alone.
Two Lenovo Chromebooks enter, but you only need one. We can help you decide.
Some of the best Chromebooks you can buy today come from Lenovo's stable, and you might be wondering which one is right for your needs. Two popular options, the Flex 5i Chromebook and the ThinkPad C14 Chromebook, start around the same price and offer many of the same features. However, the ThinkPad is better geared toward business users thanks to its extra security and durability. Let's break down the similarities and differences between these two Chromebooks to help you make the right decision.
The IdeaPad Flex 3i really does 'flex'
The great thing about looking for terrific, affordable Chromebooks is that there's always an opportunity to pick one up for even less than you'd expect. That goes for Lenovo's Chromebook Flex 3i, a low-profile, but incredibly versatile laptop that's going for $75 off its already-sunken MSRP right now.
An affordable tablet with a good bundled keyboard? Yes, please
I spent years as a daily ChromeOS user, but I’ve never been sold on Google’s desktop operating system on tablets. Whether on convertible laptops with 360-degree hinges or detachable two-in-ones like the defunct Pixel Slate, I’ve never actually wanted to interact with ChromeOS by touch.
Need a new Chromebook? One of these is great for casual users, while the other is made for business. We compare to help you decide.
Acer's Chromebook Spin 311 and Lenovo's ThinkPad C14 Chromebook are considered some of the best Chromebooks around, but they're each made for a different type of user. The Spin 311 is an affordable Chromebook that's great for casual users and kids, while the ThinkPad C14 Chromebook offers a heavy business spin for professionals.

It's beautiful enough to be one of the best ChromeOS devices on the market and it can be yours right now at a great discount.
There's still time to get high-end performance at mid-range prices
Chromebooks have long been fighting the reputation for being these low-end budget machines, only up for handling simple tasks like email and web browsing. That couldn't be the furthest thing from the truth, and we've got plenty of options these days for users who need more power. If you're in the market for that kind of machine, we've actually got a few here that are currently on sale, with Lenovo's IdeaPad Gaming Chromebook and Acer's 516 GE Cloud Gaming Chromebook both still available with their massive Cyber Monday discounts.

All leaked as part of a Google Play Console listing
While the Android tablet space has been lackluster for the last few years, the ongoing revival seems to be continuing with Lenovo possibly staking a claim as one of the major players alongside the upcoming Pixel tablet and the wide range of Samsung options. A new leak has shown off a product called the Lenovo Tab Extreme, and it appears to be a flagship successor to the Lenovo Tab P12 Pro.
