Chromebooks make some of the best 2-in-1 devices thanks to their lightweight OS and affordability, but this Lenovo IdeaPad Flex 5i Chromebook for just $299 at Amazon absolutely takes things to a whole other level.

Black Friday deals are a great way to get big ticket items at a more accessible price, and nowhere is this more important than when it comes to a new laptop or Chromebook. 

And while the best Chromebooks are generally more affordable than the best Windows laptops or MacBooks, they usually have to sacrifice high-performance hardware to remain affordable. Not so with this Lenovo 2-in-1, which has more than enough power under the lid to perform at its best for many years to come.
