purchase new Chromebook


Mar 8, 2015
My Acer Chromebook is about to expire.
Time has passed since I got it and it does what I need.
Prices have changed. Can I get a decent one for under $500?
I wouldn't mind 8 GBs RAM and 128Storage.
I also would like an SSD not an emme .
Samsung is my choice if you agree. The expiration is only 3 years and now it is upped to like 6 years for new ones.
I looked at 'about' which gave this expiration date.
I know it can be used after support date but I bank etc. so need security
Any suggestion?
i have a pixelbook and i love it. i got it on sale for $799 at Best Buy.

good luck finding a samsung chromebook with a ssd that is under $500.....well at least a decent one. i found some on amazon, but those sammy's have a 16g ssd.....not really worth it.

samsung galaxy chromebook 2, at least looks real good. but some say that their first galaxy chromebook is better then the 2.

the 2 is on sale at Best Buy:
