Depends on what size screen you want and how much performance you need (eg for playing graphics-intensive games). There have been a bunch of new touchscreen Chromebooks announced recently that will probably be faster (and more expensive) than the models from a year or two ago. If you want cheap and don't need a lot of performance, the Asus Chromebook Flip and the Acer Chromebook R11 are good older models that can sometimes be found for great prices.
The offer is not available online. I purchased two chromebooks and was able to use both the 10% off today online and my 5% off red card. My husband has been looking for a tablet but is thrilled with his new computer.

i bought one of these last year to use as a portable video player. i just load up a few SD cards and the family is good to go. it also has an HDMI port to output videos to big TVs. its SSD means long battery life, and i don't worry too much letting the kids use it.
it can serve as a Handy pseudo-computer for internet surfing on the road as well, although i usually bring my laptop.
As a related story, I've got a Chromebook by a different maker that is 18 months old, and that gets heavy usage every day. The battery life has declined from about 9 hours to 4 to 5. I opened it up to check about replacing the battery. It not intended as consumer replaceable, but was very easy 12 screws and a plug. On eBay the battery price was nearly a $100 which seemed expensive for the price of the whole Chromebook. I'm hoping the battery price falls before replacing it.
I got one (at Fairfax VA store) yesterday and tried it out. Thought the size would be cramped but it is type-able and screen is quiet good for the price. There was an Acer Cloudbook right next to this Chromebook at the store, and Cloudbook's keys are smaller and harder to type on. Boots up very quickly, and set up (with existing gmail account) is quick too. Keyboard and touchpad is a little sluggish (I will try to play with touchpad sensitivity if there is a setting somewhere) but I think keyboard sluggishness is from slow CPU. Screen quiet good for the price. Will connect an external keyboard/mouse to see if it's sluggish too, but this is a very workable laptop for web surfing, emailing, typing/notes and streaming things.
