Chromebooks have proven to be wildly popular in schools. More than a million Chromebooks were sold to schools this spring alone.
For schools, Chromebook math is easy. In Google’s Chromebooks for Education program, each device can cost as little as $279 and they’re easy to manage from a centralized console. For school districts the real killer feature is this: If they buy through the Google program and a Chromebook stops working, Google just replaces it for no additional cost.
Chromebooks also come with their built-in advantages: They require no anti-virus programs, they boot up in fewer than 10 seconds, they automatically update to the newest patches without any fuss or muss, and with them you can use a wide variety of educational and productivity programs.
