$249 Chromebooks!!!

This is super exciting to me.

Google just announced the $249 Google Chromebook!!!

I've been using the original CR-48 laptops in my room and they are preferred by me and many of the students to the MacBooks that we also have.

The CR-48 is not the most solid computer in the world but the concept behind it is amazing.  I've used a Samsung Chromebook and it is much more solid and still has the amazing concept.  Now, Samsung and Google have gotten the cost of laptop down to $249.  That is marvelous.

I can't wait to get my hands on one and see how sturdy it is and how well it works.  I might even shell out my own $249.

Here a few reasons it is exciting to me:

  • Boots in 10 seconds.  That is a huge deal in school.  The couple minutes it takes for MacBooks causes headaches.
  • Instant waking from sleep.  Instant.  Again, huge in schools.
  • Log into the computer and you are logged into your Google account.  More time saving.
  • All the extensions and web apps work wonderfully.
  • You can get 4 Chromebooks for the price of one MacBook.
  • You can get 2 Chromebooks for the price of one iPad.
