Teachers will be able to purchase the already-cheap Samsung Series 5 Chromebook <http://www.engadget.com/2012/05/29/samsung-chromebook-series-5-550-review/>  for $99 this holiday season, Google just announced on its blog. Mountain View will offer the Chromebok for that discounted price thanks to a partnership with the online charity DonorsChoose.org -- and that $99 covers management and support in addition to the hardware. Public-school teachers who qualify will need to head to the Donors Choose website and to put in a request for up to 30 units. Everyone else can simply admire that act of benevolence -- or head to the aforementioned URL to make a donation of their own.
