You might not even need to spend anything if you have an older laptop already lying about. Installing the equivalent of Chrome OS onto aged hardware takes less than an hour’s worth of elbow grease, and the final result often feels snappier than today’s dirt-cheap Chromebooks.

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.

Here is how to get this “Hewlett Packard Detachable Laptop” at a much lower price…

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.
