Google Drive

In order to receive the great deal, customers will need to take advantage of the offer before January 1, 2015 by buying an eligible Chromebook.

While Chromebooks haven’t been the most popular devices lately, Google announced a new promotion designed to allure customers to purchase a Chromebook. Anyone purchasing a new Chromebook notebook computer this holiday season will receive a free 1TB of data storage on its Google Drive cloud storage system.

In order to receive the great deal, customers will need to take advantage of the offer before January 1, 2015 by buying an eligible Chromebook. However, Google has not disclosed which Chromebooks are eligible for the free storage as the search giant has extended the offer only to a select few Chromebooks starting for as low as $199.

Interested buyers can buy the laptop off from retail outlets as well as online stores, including Amazon, Walmart, Best Buy, Newegg, and Tiger Direct, as well as through PC makers themselves, such as HP, Acer and Toshiba.

Many Chromebooks may not excel their more expensive and more powerful counterpart, but they’re finally reaching a point where they can deliver some splendid performance, including Samsung’s Chromebook 2, which sells for nearly $300, but manages to deliver some surprising performance for a Chromebook.

Chromebooks are designed specifically for basic browsing like, browsing web pages, checking email and managing social media like images, video and music files. It makes use of Google’s open-source Google Documents service, which offers word processing and spreadsheets saved to Google Drive and provides easy integration with others by making it easy to share particular document files with friends and colleagues.

Samsung’s Chromebook 2 comes in 11- and 13-inch screen sizes. The 11-inch model features a 1366×768 display, Samsung’s in-house Exynos 5 Octa processor, 4GB of RAM along with a 16GB of storage and eight hours of battery life, while the13-inch model sports a higher-resolution 1920×1080 display, a faster Exynos 5 Octa processor and an additional half-hour of battery life, but keeps the same RAM and storage.

And if the buyer looking for something with a little more power and portability, the MacBook Air is a great buying option, and prices for the Apple laptop start at $899. It’s the lowest price point that a Mac has ever seen. The MacBook Air comes in 11- and 13-inch screen sizes as well, and features a 1.4GHz dual-core Intel Core i5 processor with 4GB of RAM and 128GB of flash storage. Besides that, the OS X operating system is also something that many users will enjoy if a minimalistic Chrome OS doesn’t suit their fancy.
