Google provides teachers $99 Chromebooks through charity
Google has found a way to get its Chromebook notebooks into classrooms'by letting someone gift one to a favorite teacher for Christmas at a fraction of the regular price. The company has partnered with DonorsChoose, a "crowd-funding" charity site that applies the Kickstarter model to equipping public classrooms.
According to a blog post by Google Chromebook Group Product Manager Rajen Sheth, Google is offering up Samsung Series 5 Chromebooksfor $99. But teachers and schools can't directly purchase the Chrome OS based notebook computers themselves for that price; they must request them through DonorsChoose. When their request gets funded by donors, Google will provide them with a Chromebook.
The picture in the project descriptionleads us to believe that the deal applies to the older version of the Series 5 Chromebook. On Amazon, this one costs $479.99 for the 3G model, but is out of stock for the Wi-Fi-only model. Google has the device priced starting at $430.
