$100 Discount on Any Chromebook – Google’s Offer for “Chromies”

As a member of Chromebook Central you’ve had the opportunity to see (and help!) Chromebooks evolve over the past year.

chromebook  $100 Discount on Any Chromebook   Googles Offer for Chromies

That’s why we’d like to say thank you with $100 off any Chromebook of your choice on Amazon.com. We hope this gives you a chance to get your hands on a new Chromebook or share one with a friend or family member!

That was from an email Google Chromebook team sent out to Chromies or Chromebook forum members. There will be a coupon code along with this email. This was a limited period offer and I dont know how many of you got this email or made use of it.

So, What Does This Indicate?

Does this mean, that there will be a lot of discounts and offers like this during this holiday season?
Are they not selling Chromebooks in good numbers as expected?
Is this a sign of a price drop coming soon for all Chromebooks?

Any thoughts guys?

Thanks Matias Wright for sending this in!

  1. I think it’s because not enough people are buying them as they are a bit skeptical about the Chromebook being able to work offline. Where I live, wifi isn’t everywhere so the Chromebook would be pretty useless here.

  2. Surprisingly enough the Chromebook is not too useless during times that you don’t have any internet access. There’s already an assortment of offline apps.

    -Google Docs
    -Gmail
    -Google Calendar
    -NYTimes
    -Wikipedia
    -Springpad
    -Offline Dictionary
    -Linker Puzzle
    -Amazon Cloud Reader
    -Scratch Pad
    -Google Music
    -Scientific Calculator
    -Ajax Animator

    Just to name a few. I’m sure there’s a lot more.

    • why dont you make a post with say, 50 offline apps :) I can publish it as guest post from you..

  3. I did have time to compile 25. Maybe when I have more time I’ll list 50. I do need to test them out for full Chromebook compatibility though.
