Google has announced the launch of a new renting program in partnership with CIT.
They are offering Chromebooks and Chromebox devices on rent for USD 30 and USD 25 per month respectively.
Interesting organizations can order these for a specific time period and return them to Google.
Rentals are month-to-month, and there’s no long-term commitment. The rental includes Chrome hardware with 3-year limited warranty, the web-based Chrome management console to centrally set-up and control users, devices and apps, and 24/7 support. And the monthly payments actually decrease the longer you keep the device.
There are special offers available for companies who are already using Google Apps in their infrastructure. Google said:
If you’re a Google Apps customer, today we’re also making it possible for you to purchase up to 10 Chromebooks – including web-based user, device and app management – online from Google. You can manage your fleet of Chromebooks right from the Apps control panel, giving you a unified view across your organization and enabling you to get users up and running quickly.
