Google I/O 2011: Google are set to announce a new Chrome laptop in a $20 a month "student package" which includes both hardware and online services. Google are striking while the iron is hot as it would go hand in hand with their Google Apps which is a Microsoft Office-like suite of products that is sold to businesses for $50 a year. Bundle this with a super-inexpensive Chrome laptop and market it like mobile phones are and it could be a money-making machine for Google.

Having students have access to laptops that are cheaper than buying a laptop for school is a big thing for Google. Right now even a cheap netbook is still a few hundred dollars, but even a part-time working student could very easily afford $20 a month for a Chrome-based laptop.
