For years and years software has been a part of the service industry and a lot of companies have heavily invested in this but for the first time in the history of technology a hardware is been given as a service of a large scale.
Yes, you have read it correctly.Google is now giving away Chrome OS Notebooks without any upfront payment.These Chrome OS notebooks will be distributed on a monthly subscription basis which will cost $28 per business user and $20 per school user. The image below shows the features of the Chrome OS.
To add more to the amazing Pie, Google has also announced that all further software as well as hardware updates shall be free. Isn't that just amazing. As a user you can keep up with the latest technology in terms of hardware as well as software for just $28 a month.Seems quite economical, isn't it?
According to many tech experts and bloggers this new Chrome OS notebook hardware service will be a boon to the education sector.Some experts also go ahead and say that Chrome OS in course of time will beat Apple who are currently pioneers in education sector with regards to notebooks. Though i would personally not agree to it since Apple's cloud based service plans are yet to be out. Any assumption in this regard can only be made after Apple comes out with its own cloud based service.
