On Wednesday, Acer and Walmart announced they were reviving the brand to sell affordable Windows 10 notebooks and laptop convertibles from $179 and up.
How to turn an old laptop into a Chromebook… Not only will you save money, but some older laptops have better hardware than cheap Chromebooks—making this project a double win.
In the fight between a Google Chrome OS-powered Chromebook and a Microsoft Windows PC, it boils down to cost versus convenience.
The specs on Walmart’s cheapest laptop—the EVOO EV-C-116-5—makes it clear to any technical enthusiast that the device is not exactly going to be a powerhouse. But the little laptop only costs $139, and its stats appear to stack up well with $200-$250 Chromebooks.

Was checking things out at Amazon to post on the blog and came across the “HP 10-P018WM Detachable Windows 10 Laptop“, which is a low end laptop that can be used as a tablet. This would be great internet surfing, videos, etc… while we are at home. What I found is that if you scroll down on the page, look for “New & Used (9) from $264.98 FREE Shipping”… The $264 price is an open box “never used” price. I have purchased many items on Amazon by looking for the “New & Used” selection and have not had to send anything back yet. In this case you could save about $70. If you don’t like it when you get it; then, simply return it.

I am always looking for bargains to post here on the blog. The “Lenovo Ideapad 330” business grade laptop, based on the customer review ratings, may be a laptop to consider for under $400. As a matter of fact, this laptop was priced at $374.99 at the time of this posting.
This is a major price reduction on the “Microsoft Surface Pro 6 (Intel Core i5, 8GB RAM, 256 GB)” at Amazon… I have no idea how long this deal will last.
