Just a reminder, the ordering deadline to buy a Chromebook with free shipping is December 19. After this date, you’ll have to pay for expedited (2 day or overnight) shipping in order for it to ship and arrive by Christmas. If you’re already planning on buying a Chromebook or accessories as a Christmas gift for someone anyway, you may as well put the order in before December 19 (as I write this, only a few days away) and save some money with free shipping.
According to my good friend Old St. Nick, a Chromebook would make a very exciting Christmas gift for anyone. Besides their incredibly fast, ultra-light mobile performance, their minimalist, simplified interface and upkeep make Chromebooks the perfect laptop gift for teens (and younger kids), seniors, as well as 30-somethings. Don’t be fooled by the attractive simplicity, the hardware makes these some of the fastest ultra-mobile laptops around, and the 3G models can be used anywhere, even without a Wi-Fi signal.
As with any other high-tech ultra-mobile laptop, Chromebooks are a great Christmas gift to find under the tree on Christmas morning (especially the Samsung model that comes in Arctic white!) If you’re a procrastinator, keep in mind, second day or overnight shipping typically costs upwards of $20-$30. I mean, I’m no scientist, but that is a “load of dough” when you could have guaranteed arrival by December 24 and free shipping. If you’re planning on buying a Chromebook, save some cash (or use it to buy a nice accessory!) and order by December 19!

Final Note: With the free shipping deadline approaching, these Chromebooks are selling out quickly… As I write this, the Acer 3G Chromebook (see above) actually only has 4 laptops left in stock. They may get more in before the 19th (especially with Wednesday and Thursday traditionally being shipment days), but, of course, no one is sure. Good luck!
