Does this include Google Apps for Business?

If I were to buy a Chromebook for Business, would the $28/month include a Google Apps license? They are selling this as a "hardware and software" bundle, so I'm wondering if Google Apps is included? If so, that is a really good deal!

Still wish it was month-to-month instead of 3 year commitment though :s

No, that's the catch! Apps to be purchased separately.

However it's okay, since most businesses would already be having their Exchange Servers etc.

I agree with CB4me, if the $28 per month included the hardware and Google Apps, and the platform adds the ability access MS Network resources, this solution would be competitive option for the company I work for (about 1,500 employees). The math for a Windows PC/Office/POP3 account (600/300/5 per user, per month) platform over three years is about $30 a month.

I suspect Google is likely waiting until after launch to see whether they need to start including Google Apps or if ChromeOS drives users to buy it themselves.
