With the vast number of options available it can be hard to simply pick out a cheap laptop that's capable of handling your everyday home and work needs. That's why we've highlighted a few great budget Chromebook deals that start from a bargain price of just $99.

Take this Asus CX22NA Chromebook that's now only $99 (was $219). You're unlikely to find a laptop for less that's worth spending money on as many of the cheaper devices are poorly built and offer lacklustre performance. Of course, this Chromebook isn't packed with high-end components either, but it is designed with light use in mind. So, for those who need just a basic device for general browsing, school work, sending emails and other straightforward tasks then this has you covered.

Anyone with a little more money to spend can also pick from a number of other excellent Chromebook deals available today including the Lenovo Chromebook Duet for $249 at Best Buy (was $299) or the HP Chromebook 11 for $299.99 (was $599.99). 

Both are great options if you want to spend around $300 on a budget device but get a bit more out of it than the most basic option above. The Lenovo is a compact and affordable 2-in-1 machine with the option to switch to tablet mode, while the HP is also a 2-in-1 device but comes with 8GB RAM which gives it a big boost to performance.
