If you’re one of the millions of Canadians that have been working or learning at home throughout the course of the past year, you’ll know the importance of staying connected. Whether you choose to use a tablet, desktop computer or a laptop, they’re an integral part of our daily routines now more than ever.
While investing in a new device is a decision that often involves careful consideration, scoring a great deal is nothing to sneeze at. If you’re finding yourself in need of a faster device, might we suggest one top pick from Amazon Canada that’s currently on sale?
SHOP IT: Amazon, $600 (originally $764)
The HP Chromebook x360 14" Touch is a multipurpose piece of technology that you’ll want to take advantage of while it’s on sale for more than 20 per cent off. Normally retailing for $764, right now it’s marked down to $600 for a limited time.
This two in one device comes with 360 degree hinges and a touch screen, meaning it can be used as both a traditional laptop or a touchscreen tablet. Its thin and lightweight design is enhanced with a 14” screen, so it’s perfect for work, school, or just streaming your favourite movies and TV shows.
It comes with a built-in webcam for all of your video conferencing needs, and runs on the latest Chrome software with all of Google's most popular programs already installed.
What shoppers are saying
Though this Chromebook has only received a handful of customer reviews so far, those who have made the purchase are loving it for its battery life and top-notch touch screen capabilities.
“Really like the touch screen features, and really like the folding capabilities of the Chromebook which allows for the computer to fold,” shared one five-star reviewer. “This allows for a tablet feel which gives you a bigger screen for watching movies and videos. The keypad in tablet mode is also large enough to make typing simple.”
It’s also received the seal of approval from parents of kids who have been virtually learning over the past year.
“This was a great buy for my kids during the pandemic, and since the school board relies on Google classrooms this was the best medium to use,” noted one reviewer.
If a quick and convenient setup that offers multi purpose functionality is what you’re after, then you’re not going to want to miss out on this on-sale Chromebook. Of course, if you’re looking for a more powerful device that offers more customization, then this may not be the laptop for you.
