If you're still living back in the days when a Chromebook was just some cheap tech trinket that couldn't do much more than take notes or check emails, it's time to catch up.

Acer was one of the original Chromebook manufacturers, and now, you can enjoy some healthy savings with this collection of refurbished and restored Acer Chromebooks at savings of up to more than half off.
