If you’re looking for a zippy everyday Chromebook, you’ve come to the right place. Best Buy’s selling the Acer Chromebook Plus 515 for just $269, which is a savings of $130.

I actually reviewed this specific machine last month and awarded it four out of five stars, because it’s great. The audio quality is surprisingly punchy, performance is fast and reliable, and it offers a pleasant typing experience. As far as everyday laptops go, it checks off all the right boxes. I really enjoyed this machine and, for under $300, I think you will too.

The Acer Chromebook Plus 515 is rocking an Intel Core i3-1215U CPU, Intel UHD graphics, 8GB of RAM, and 128GB of SSD storage. Personally, I didn’t any notice any lag when jumping from tab to tab and it boots up and shuts down within seconds. The bezels are thicker than I like, but the display is spacious at 15.6-inches and it has a resolution of 1920×1080. In other words, it’s a perfectly usable display for day-to-day productivity. It’ll last about 13 hours on a single charge, which is a little below average for a Chromebook, but it’s still a fantastic day-long result.

This is a phenomenal deal on a Chromebook that’s very good, so don’t miss out!
