Chromebooks upgraded and price cut
Chromebooks, the notebook computers that run Google's Chrome OS, are gaining popularity.
I have one of the original test models, the CR-48, and love it. I think Chromebooks and Chrome OS are great for education: nothing to install or update, students log in with own account, no data stored on device. A recent article of mine about Chromebooks vs. iPads and cloud apps vs. on-device apps got some good articles.
Google has updated Chrome OS with some nice new features and has dropped the price of the Chromebooks to $299.
If you have ever looked at getting a Chromebook, now is a good time.
