Today, in Amazon's Gold Box Deal of the Day, it has the Acer Chromebook 14 (along with a slew of other laptops, Chromebooks, routers and such) on sale. Bringing the Acer Chromebook 14 down from its original price of $299 to just $249. That's a great price for a really good looking and great performing Chromebook.
This Chromebook from Acer is an all-aluminum build, so it's definitely high-end and unfortunately this price is only available on the gold colored-model. It has a 14-inch full HD display, powered by the Intel Celeron N3160 quad-core processor which is clocked at 1.6GHz. There's also 4GB of RAM inside, with 32GB of storage. Acer touts up to 12 hours of battery life, of course that is going to be subjective to how you are using the Chromebook, but since it runs Chrome OS which is a lighter operating system, you should be able to get a good 9-10 hours of battery life out of this one.
