Google has to be like the ultimate tech octopus. They are building digital libraries. Creating robots. Mapping the world. And God only knows what else. But recently they have announced that they've partnered with some of personal computing’s finest companies to create the Chromebook. Is Google going to dominate computing altogether? I guess we'll know soon enough. 

HP and other industry heavy-hitters like Samsung have partnered with Google to give consumers the ultimate computing experience as they integrate Google life into their personal laptops. Starting at $179.00 and getting pricier as one moves up the data chain, the Chromebook is a cool addition to the PC world. It has built-in virus protection with multiple layers of security, and guess what? You don’t even have to update it, Google does it for you. 
A built-in Google Drive helps you back up files and photos, plus you get 100 GB of space free. Google is currently pursuing corporations as well to encourage them to try the Chromebook when replacing their older computers and introducing businesspeople to the plethora of Google business apps. More importantly, a Chromebook can play with all of your other devices nicely in the sandbox, without the use of cords. It can even connect to your old computer. I know you're thinking, yeah right. But people said these guys couldn't map the world, and consumers are using Google Maps and Google Earth faithfully. 

Consumers have several PC options with which they can experience the Chromebook. You can buy a Toshiba Chromebook. HP has a Chromebook 11 and 14. Acer has several models, and Samsung has joined the ranks as well. Surprisingly, they also have what is called a Chromebox by Asus that gives consumers the ability to experience the Chromebook's tech on their current computers.
The pricing for Google’s new technological feat goes up to about $1,400 bucks. This gives Google the leg room to create consumer trials and also build a customer base as it continues to innovate in the marketplace. Armed also with the Chromestore to keep the Chromebook's coffers filled with app excellence, I truly believe that our friends at Google are on to something. From free apps to machines designed to enhance the experience of those apps, Google is destined to be a power player in PC manufacturing.
