Most of us are used to buying a new personal computer every five years or so, but for many people, this past 16 months (can you believe it's been that long?) of working from home has put a beating and a half on their go-to computers and, well, prematurely aged them. So...maybe it's time for an upgrade? Maybe you'd like to score an incredible deal? Maybe this one from Walmart on a compact, top-rated laptop?
Actually, not maybe...yes! Because right now, the Lenovo Chromebook Flex 3 convertible laptop is on sale for just $179 — that's a 35 percent savings!
Of course, on this and any purchase of more than $35, you'll get free shipping. To score free shipping on all orders, plus lots more benefits including speedy delivery, sign up for Walmart+.

More than just a laptop
Originally priced at $279, the Lenovo Chromebook Flex 3 has a brilliant HD 11.6-inch LED touch display that makes everything look great, from charts and graphs to your favorite streaming series to family Zooms. Count on a speedy, powerful Intel Celeron N4020 Dual Core Processor along with 4GB of memory and 32GB of on-board storage. It even has a 360-degree hinge, allowing it to rotate and transform into a tablet. With back-to-school just around the corner, this is just the ticket for the studious teen in your life.
Shoppers love the size and build quality. "I really like this Chromebook," said a discerning Walmart shopper. "I love that they didn't skimp on the frame — it's made of metal and not plastic. The size is perfect for carrying it back and forth. The new operating system works way better than my older Chromebook's, and it does everything I need it to do."
Meanwhile, this Lenovo Chromebook Flex 3 is a true workhorse with its single USB-C and single USB-A ports and a stalwart battery life of up to 16 hours.
Chromebook runs the latest version of ChromeOS, so you know you'll get speedy results. And unlike Windows 10 or macOS laptops, with long loading times and complicated app downloads, you just log in to your Gmail account via Google Chrome and you’re good to go. In fact, this Chromebook can access and download ChromeOS, Linux and Android apps for more versatility.
"...I carry my Chromebook virtually everywhere I go to take notes for business purposes," shared a satisfied Walmart shopper. "The Lenovo feels solid, has a keyboard that is easy to maneuver, and it was a simple process to open the lid and begin work from my previous Chromebook."
The Lenovo Chromebook Flex 3 hybrid is ideal for anyone who wants the power and usability of ChromeOS at an affordable price. If you need a simple yet reliable and easy-to-use laptop-tablet combo, this is the one!
"I've been working off Chromebooks for years," added another five-star reviewer. "For the price point, this is one of the best models I've worked with...."
At $179 (was $279), the Lenovo Chromebook Flex 3 is a steal and a fantastic work-from-home upgrade!
