After the first twelve months with the Chromebook, the charge drops to $25 and after two years, to $20 per month. Chromeboxes can also be rented, at $25 per month, which declines to $18 per month over time. Google don't push any required time commitment for the rentals, making it a month-to-month service.

 

The Mountain View-based company also announced a new feature for Apps customers: bulk purchases of Chromebooks online. Current Apps customers can get up to 10 units from a new portal that Google have launched. They also want you to know that you "can manage your fleet of Chromebooks right from the Apps control panel".
