Google Launches Chromebook Rental Service Starting At $30 A Month
If you fancied owning a Google Chromebook or Chromebox but just don’t have the available funds to purchase the hardware outright, or would prefer to mange your cash-flow, whilst purchasing a number of notebooks.
Google has this week announced a new Chrome OS hardware rental program it has launched for its Google Chromebooks that allows you to rent the hardware from was little as $20 a month.
Google has tiered the payment system as follows: A Google Chromebook will cost you $30 per month for the first year, then will drop to $25 a month, and drop again after 2 years down to just $20 a month. Which is pretty good when you consider Chromebooks cost around $599 to buy outright, Google explains:
“Organizations in the US can rent a new Chromebook starting at $30 per month or rent a Chromebox starting at $25 per month. Rentals are month-to-month, and there’s no long-term commitment. The rental includes Chrome hardware with 3-year limited warranty, the web-based Chrome management console to centrally set-up and control users, devices and apps, and 24/7 support. And the monthly payments actually decrease the longer you keep the device. “
