Samsung Chromebook NewEgg

If you’ve been waiting for a good reason to jump on the Chrome OS bandwagon, here it is: for a limited time only, NewEgg is offering the newest Samsung Chromebook for $229, which is $20 off the normal asking price. But here’s where things get interesting: NewEgg is also willing to throw in a 500GB external harddrive completely free.

Oh – shipping is free, too.

This is a fantastic deal for a hardy notebook that has remained at the top of Amazon’s bestseller list since it was released last fall. And for those of you who are worried that the paltry 16GB SSD won’t hold enough storage, the external harddrive should alleviate those fears. (I should also mention that unlike some of those refurb deals you might see around the internet, this is for a brand new Chromebook, which means you’re guaranteed to get that 100GB of free Google Drive storage, as well.)

If you decide to get in on this deal, be sure to let us know below!
