Google To Lease Chrome Laptops for $20/Month [REPORT]

Google To Lease Chrome Laptops for $20/Month [REPORT].

I like this idea – a lot. I tried (and failed) to get into the pilot testing program for Google’s Chrome OS-powered CR-48 notebooks. The CR-48, powered by the minimal browser-like Chrome OS, offers minimal power in terms of hardware – compared to multimedia or high-end market notebooks – and has NO local storage. The CR-48 has a solid state drive with the OS, and all apps that you run are found online.

I think this is certainly a viable model for students, who will almost always have Internet access to “the cloud” – where their applications, email, calendar and all data will reside – and should be considered for some businesses as well.

With Internet access becoming more pervasive, why should you pay $500, $1000 for a laptop, when you can lease a platform to do the largely the same work for just $20/month, or just $240/year when you think about it that way.

I would certainly give it a shot. Most of my data is online these days anyway.

Ouch, this made my eyes hurt. Sort of like an infomercial, with the hosts milling around the kitchen. Ugh.
