Here's an incredible bargain if you're looking for a cheap laptop this week: a Samsung Chromebook 4 for only $99 at Walmart.

While we do usually see a few laptop deals for under $100 these are often poor quality devices that would not be worth even spending so little money on. However, when it comes from a reputable manufacturer like Samsung, it's is well worth paying attention to - especially if you need a basic machine to handle simple daily tasks or schoolwork.

This Samsung Chromebook 4, in particular, comes with an 11.6-inch screen, Intel Celeron processor, 4GB RAM and 32GB of storage. These are all fairly standard components you'd expect to find in a Chromebook for under $200 that's designed for light use, so no big surprises there. What makes this laptop deal so appealing, though, is the impressive 12.5-hour battery life – something those who favour portability and need a device that can last all day will definitely appreciate.

Walmart hasn't made it clear how long this deal will be available so best move fast to secure one of the best Chromebook deals we've seen so far this year.
