Chromebooks make day-to-day computing fast, simple and secure, whether you’re searching for a great pumpkin pie recipe or sharing a family photo from Google Drive. And now, as a bonus for the holiday season, new Chromebook buyers can get 1TB of Google Drive storage for two years — a $240 value — absolutely free.
Chromebooks previously shipped with a free 100GB Google Drive subscription, so this deal expands the available cloud storage tenfold. Not bad. The offer ends on January 1, 2015, though, so it looks like a simple sales booster for the holiday season.
For reference, Asus' $199.99 EeeBook X205, which has the same local storage limitations as a Chromebook, comes with 500GB of cloud storage from Asus and another 100GB from Microsoft, both good for two years. HP's Stream 11, another similar machine, comes with 1TB of OneDrive storage, but only for one year.
