Google To Offer $99 Chromebooks to Public Schools

Samsung‘s Series 5 Chromebook regularly costs $429 for the WiFi-only version, but Google has announced today that they’re offering discounted Series 5 Chromebooks to public schools around the USfor only $99, thanks to a partnership with DonorsChoose.org, which is an online charity that connects donors directly to public school classroom needs.

Teachers can go to the Donors Choose website and request a Series 5 Chromebook for their classroom. The request will be posted on the website where anyone can make a donation to support the request. When teachers reach their funding goal, they’ll receive their Chromebooks from Lakeshore Learning, DonorsChoose.org’s exclusive fulfillment partner for the program.
