Is the Google Chromebook for Education available for Students? Or just for schools to buy?

I am a student, and $20/month seems like it would be an awesome deal for me. All i need to buy is a monitor.

Wouldn't even need a monitor it be fine without one as a portable laptop and a monitor at home if you'd like and do everything wireless !it would be great because at that point all you would need to do is email your teacher/ prof the essay and such!

Traditionaly offers like this are made available to educational organizations, not the end user (students) themselves.

Available to students for few bucks monthly.

I bet this will be a big hit on Internet. and Facebook will be loaded with Students all the time and might be even down like Twitter whale!

Yes! This is the perfect thing for students. I, as well as many of the people I know, would love this kind of help with college.

too bad that only schools can order them and not students themselves. I don't think this will ever come in Greece :(

Why would the deal be more for the educator than for the student? That doesn't even seem fair! If you are going to give a break for education, think of the student who can't afford to buy a computer.

The leasing deal is only available for 10 or more devices at a time. Google can't be doing with the admin overhead of huge numbers of small fry $30 dollars a month agreements with poor students where there is a risk they will default and disappear with the hardware. They offer this deal to institutions who will order in large numbers and be reliable customers, keeping admin costs down.

If you just want one chromebook, find the cash (maybe get a loan) and go to Amazon/best buy/pc world. Alternatively, you could wait until the mobile telcos start offering them on mobile web contracts for a monthly fee. Such deals will probably become available before the end of the year.
