Chromebooks: Used By Over 2000 Schools

Chromebooks: Used By Over 2000 Schools

In late 2012, Google announced special $99 Chromebook pricing for schools. To put that in perspective, just a couple months earlier, they dropped the consumer price from $299 to $249. Needless to say… this is very competitive. So, how is this move working out for Google? Great! The search giant is reporting over 2000 schools now use Chromebooks.  While this is not a huge number, it has nearly doubled in the past 3 months. In October of 2012, less than 1000 schools were using these devices. That just goes to show… if you want your product adopted in the education market… sell it cheap.
