Back to school? This Lenovo Chromebook is down to $140 — that's 55% off — today only

Whether you have kids in your life making their return to the classroom or you're looking to get a powerhouse tool for a teacher in your circle (or hey, maybe you're one yourself), this one-day Amazon sale is almost too good to be true. Almost. The Lenovo 14e Chromebook is designed with education in mind, so excuse us while we drop some science: It's now 53% off, bringing this $300 computer down to just $140. That's a mere fraction of the price of some big-name brands, and the 14e even has plenty of features they don't.

Perfect for both teachers and their students, this laptop is made for the classroom.

For starters, this Chromebook provides access to thousands of educational apps and tools, including Google Classroom, plus it (natch) runs on Chrome OS, so it's easy to use even if you aren't totally tech-savvy. And it's packed with features for those who like to get creative.

It comes with plenty of ports for projectors, mice, external hard drives and external monitors (four total), plus a headphone jack. It also features extras kids (and those with messy workspaces) need — a water-resistant keyboard, mechanically anchored keys, and best of all, a battery that lasts for a full day on a single charge. Plus, unlike a Macbook, it can lie completely flat.

It's the perfect laptop for on-the-go use, too: It weighs just 3.27 pounds, but don't confuse it's light weight for being delicate. It meets both military grade and Lenovo's own rigorous testing. For just $140, it does the job — and then some.

"Unbelievable battery life, fast as lightning," shared one happy shopper. "Lightweight and charges fast. Great school computer!!"

Another agreed: "The build quality of this Chromebook is top-notch. It's super speedy, boots up in an instant (as most Chromebooks do), and has all the basic functionality I need. The two USB ports are a huge plus, as is the availability of a Bluetooth connection. The screen quality is excellent. The display is bright and vibrant...As a whole, this Chromebook is a solid five-star purchase. For the price, it really doesn't get much better than this."

Perfect for both teachers and their students, this laptop is made for the classroom.
