Google has unveiled its cheapest Chromebook offerings yet. The Haier Chromebook 11 and Hisense Chromebook both will sell for only $149. And then there’s the new Chromebit that users can plug into a display and turn it into a computer.

Compared to other laptops, even to other Chromebooks, the Haier Chromebook 11 and Hisense Chromebook are undeniably affordable. Both come equipped with an 11.6-inch HD display, 2GB of RAM, 16GB of internal storage and quad-core Rockchip RK3288 processor that’s clocked at 1.8GHz. The former promises up to 10 hours of battery life, while the latter up to 8.5 hours.

These two Chromebooks haven’t been released yet, but pre-orders are now available via Amazon or Walmart. If you need something better, Asus has announced the Chromebook Flip. It’s a 10.1-inch laptop-tablet hybrid that comes in an all-metal body and weighs less than 2 pounds. For $249, it also offers an IPS display, physical keyboard and a touch screen.

Asus has also unveiled a new product called the Chromebit. It’s as small as your typical USB flash drive, but it comes loaded with Chrome OS to turn mere displays into full computers. Imagine bringing a fully-functional workstation with you everywhere you go, and have instant access to your work (assuming there’s a nearby display, that is). It will sell for under $100.
