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?

I am planning a 1:1 tech device at  our school.  Chromebooks are an option that WE want to look into.  Can you share any info with me too?

As Bjorn mentioned, we have purchased two Chromebook carts of 30 from
Google, one for our HS in Proctor and one for West Rutland school (a k-12).

I would be glad to discuss how its going, feel free to contact me.

Spoiler alert: we are getting ready to buy more.
