Google has been offering 100GB of free cloud storage to customers who buy Chromebooks fro a while. Now the company is stepping up its game: if you buy an eligible Chromebook between now and January 1st you’ll get 1TB of Google Drive storage space for free.
That’s a pretty good deal when you consider that Google normally charges $240 for that kind of storage… but you can buy a Chromebook for as little as $199.
Google Drive is an online storage service that you can use to store and share files, pictures, and other media. It’s also home to Google Docs, an online office suite that lets you create, edit, and collaborate on spreadsheets, text documents, and presentations.
Google’s not the only company in the 1TB club though. Microsoft also includes a terabyte of online storage through its OneDrive service to Microsoft Office 365 subscribers. That means you can get 1TB of cloud storage from Microsoft for as little as $70 per year… as well as access to Word , Excel, PowerPoint, and other Office apps. What’s more, many inexpensive laptops and tablets come with a 1-year subscription to Office 365 Personal for free.
