Google said that, after a year in the enterprise market, more than 2,000 school districts have deployed Chromebooks, and businesses in the U.S. are also adopting Chromebooks for select use cases. The devices are designed to deliver an easy computing experience for the novice user and be easy to share, as each person has their Google account with online storage. Each device comes with 100GB of free storage for two years.
