If I'm not mistaken, Rockchip (ARM-based) processors are weak. That plus this being refurbished with a 90-day warranty, not a great deal at $95.

Seems like some slightly nicer Chromebooks have hovered around this price (NEW) in previous SlickDeals (though nothing super recent). I think any functioning laptop ~$100 is a "good deal", but there have been some truly spectacular Chromebook deals a little better than this that included faster processors and full warranty (if only you had a time machine!).

That being said, none of those Chromebooks are on sale right now. I have no experience with this particular Chromebook, so I can't really comment on its speed/build quality. But as a classroom teacher I have been very impressed with Chromebooks in general.

Never heard about Rockchip processors. Are they usually popular ones for various Chromebooks?

This CPU should be slightly weaker than an N2830, the CPU that most sub $100 refurbed Chromebooks come with. So I'd rate this deal mediocre at best. But if you want a Chromebook now and don't want to wait the days or weeks for another N2830 Chromebook to come in under $100, then this is decent.

Yeah I need it for a 9th grader who wants to do homework, gravitating towards a windows machine but if chromebook suffices i would much rather take that option.

Not very popular, but becoming more so. I think these came out in summer 2015. Intel's N2830 and N2840 are the most popular, and the 3205U (better than the N2830 and N2840) use to be popular but seems more rare these days. Newer versions (N2930, N2940, N3150) are being used in new Chromebooks, but few deals on those yet. And higher priced Chromebooks can come with i3's and even i5's.

Chromebook is great as long as you don't need Microsoft Office nor the ability to print anything easily. They're cheap, can't get viruses (mostly), very light-weight (usually half the weight of a windows laptop), and have good battery life. Anything you can do in Chrome on your desktop, you can do in a Chromebook.

Microsoft offers online versions of Word, Excel, PowerPoint, OneNote, and Sway as plugins for chrome now (if you search "Microsoft" in chrome apps). Chromebooks have more options than google docs now, and are not totally impractical for students.

Thank you, durch01. Why do you say not being able to print easily. For example. I may want to open/download .pdf document from website or print coupons etc from Chromebook. Is that pain in the a** ?

I have a chromebook and canon printer MX922 that has been linked up to google cloud print. YMMV but I have been printing using chromebook straight to the printer with 95% success rate. The 5% being lag and need to reset google cloud print link. So I guess as long as you have google cloud print ready printer you should be good at printing using chromebook.

If you have a google cloud printer, its pretty easy to print, scan to the chrome os. Got the epson xp420 and once its set up, you can print and scan with ease. The printer also accepts generic ink and can print using iphone also. Printer is about $60 at walmart (xp 424) different name but basically the same as xp420.

To open pdf files, you just need to install extensions or something (forgot what it was called) from chrome. There are different ones you can find, and took a couple installs for me to find one that can edit pdf files.
