Google Offers Subscription-Only Policy For All Chromebooks

Google Chromebook

Few months back Google introduced Chromebooks for enterprise and education which opened a new chapter in the field of mobile computing. Now to make its access easy for its customers Google wants to try something different i.e. the Subscription-Only policy which might be introduced first time. According to this policy the students and business class people can get the Chromebook with a choice to pay upfront with one year of access to the web-based admin management console, phone support, and hardware warranty coverage. After that one year span customers can choose to pay a monthly fee for the next two years for management console access and support.  This offer sounds quite appealing for the Google fans that are planning to buy their respective Chromebook.  The scheduled price plan will be like this:
