A warning on the $24 HP Chromebook management license:

 

We spent a couple of weeks trying to get HP to deliver their Chromebook management licenses.  Our poor Top Floor rep got a call (sometimes 2) from us almost every day.  She also couldn’t get HP to deliver.

 

In the end, it was completely impossible to get the licenses we bought through HP to show up in our Google management console.   The Top Floor refunded and we spent $4 more to buy it through Google. It worked a day or two later.

 

I would be extremely wary to buy the HP license.  If someone has bought them and gotten them delivered, I’d like to hear how they managed to do it.

Elizabeth,

  Yes, the management prices were through Top Floor, but they were HP licenses.  Everything went through Top Floor.  I just had to make out a separate PO.

Thanks! But can you also get them through Top Floor for the Acers for that price?

The management licenses are $24 through HP.  At least that was the pricing for 35 of them.

As Jon Morris mentioned in this thread, I have a Toshiba Chromebook I bought for my own use.
Got it at Best Buy. I'm happy with it. The larger screen is still the same resolution as lots of other
Chromebooks - 1366x768. I'd be glad to try and answer any specific questions you might have.

anyone used a Toshiba Chromebook?

 

I have seen lots of low end ($300ish) Vista, Win7 and Win8 laptops from them over the years and have been impressed with the build quality.

 

Trying to work with Toshiba with a rep 10 years ago was futile.
