It is not just chromebooks. I just bought an acer aspire v5 122p http://www.bestbuy.com/site/acer-aspire-11-6-touch-screen-laptop-4gb-memory-500gb-hard-drive-chill-silver/9474165.p?id=1219023287822&skuId=9474165 - $163 with the trade in. Thanks and goodbye XP.

I bet you can't guess what OS I put on it.

One thing about Acer that drives me crazy is the plethora of models that come and go. And that the models at CDWG and such are "different" from those at Best Buy and Amazon. The last batch we bought was from neweggbusiness.com (two months ago?) and that model's gone now. Life in the fast lane, I guess.

I have an email into a Google Rep to see if there is anything specifically for the Ed market.

My guess is that there isn't bc they already have 25% of the "low price laptop" market and my guess is most of those sales (from that channel) are Ed not Biz. So their discounts will be focused on the business side, where their % must be (i'm guessing) lower.

I think there is a difference between Google's enterprise offer and Best Buy's offer...Best Buy is for individuals.

Yeah, but businesses pay $150 for the Chromebook management license, where
we pay $30.  I don't see anything about this on Google's education side.
