Google is following up with the Microsoft outages with an offer that sounds pretty good if you're getting tired of Microsoft and have been sitting on the fence when it comes to purchasing a Chromebook. Right now, Google has upped the 200GB of Drive storage to 1TB for two years if you buy a new Chromebook and activate the offer before January 1, 2015. I know I'll be looking seriously at picking one up around Black Friday for sure. Although those cheap Windows laptops are tempting as well... Both make a great take-it-to-CES rig for casual duties.
They say that this represents a $240 value and considering that most Chromebooks are in the $200 to $300 range, it’s almost like the purchase pays for itself. Contrast this to the 50GB of Dropbox you typically get for free with the activation of a new Samsung smartphone or tablet, for example, and that full 1TB is starting to sound pretty juicy.
