I just got pricing from Google for the Chromebook... I nearly spit out my coffee! I do have a couple questions now though: 1. Why? 2. Are there other vendors that we can use that have lower costs? a. $450 (+ $5/month after the 1st year) is not cheap in my opinion b. $720 (over the course of 3 years) is even less cheap Hopefully this is just Google's stock pricing and once we talk volume they sing a different tune?
