Refurb Acer C710-2847 Chromebook: $130 + tax

Sold by Acer on eBay. Free shipping.

Can also install Ubuntu (Crouton quick switch or ChrUbuntu dual boot).

This is the 2GB one with 4-cell removable battery. Adding more memory is easy, and useful even past 4GB on this 32-bit Intel because of the way both Chrome OS and Ubuntu use memory.

EDIT: Anticipating questions, since I'll shortly be away from my PC for a while, here are some Ubuntu and Acer links that may be of use:
