Google is about to announce a new Chrome laptop in a $20 a month “student package” which includes both hardware and online services. Google are striking while the iron is hot as it would go hand in hand with their Google Apps which is a Microsoft Office-like suite of products that is sold to businesses for $50 a year.
Bundle this with a super-inexpensive Chrome laptop and market it like mobile phones are and it could be a money-making machine for Google.
Even part-time working student could easily afford $20 a month for a Chrome-based laptop.
Well, to me, it definitely doesn’t sound like a good deal for a primary computer, but for a secondary computer that has built-in mobile internet, it sounds like a good deal, especially for students.
