Hello and Good Morning Everyone,

            I am wondering if it is possible to purchase a new Google Chromebook for $100 or less online.  It seems that the only ones I have been able to find are either refurbished or used.  If one is found that goes slightly above the $100 price, that will be fine too.   Seeing that I fully trust everyone's judgement and decision making, I am confident to say that any submitted online purchase links to a new Google Chromebook will be of good and sound quality.  

            Thanks in advance for any replies given to this search.

            George

Looks like the best you are going to find is about $150US. The only ones I have seen for less are currently marked as "sold out" at the vendors.

I find 2 under $100. Click on the photo to see the specs at the bottom. Very friendly return policy and / or replacement by Walmart. The are members here on EE that exclusively use Lenovo.

The first one is a refurb business, so I would assume the unit is refurbished.

The second is a closeout business, but worth checking further if the Author lets us know what they think?

My laptop was refurbished from Amazon. George can evaluate what refurbished actually means and the pros and cons.

Hello and Good Afternoon Brian and Nick,

         I want to sincerely thank you both for your suggestions and links.  Technically, both of you answered my question which made my final decision somewhat difficult to make.  Seeing that the Google Chromebook is going to be used as a Christmas gift for a special person, I decided to stick with my original idea of purchasing one which is new and not refurbished or used.  That said, I went ahead and ordered the HP Google Chromebook mentioned in Brian's link.  Since this is a new one, it should come with its original packaging and all necessary documentation like user and technical manuals.  

         Thanks again for the great feedback provided in response to this question.  It is most appreciative.
