Over the past few months, Chromebooks have become a part of everyday life for many people - a computer for the kitchen, for on the go, or for sharing with family (or not). In the U.S. the Samsung Chromebook has been at the top of Amazon's best-selling laptop list for 149 days since launch and in the U.K., Dixons says Chromebooks make up more than 10 percent of laptop sales in Currys and PC World stores.
Many of you around the world have told us you're eager to get your hands on a Chromebook, so we've been working with our partners to make this possible. Today we're happy to say we're one step closer to making Chromebooks truly "for everyone"--or rather, pour tout le monde, für alle, and voor iedereen.
Starting Tuesday the Acer, HP and Samsung Chromebooks will begin rolling out in Australia, Canada, France, Germany, Ireland and the Netherlands. To help improve computing for organizations, we're also rolling out Chromebooks to businesses and schools in these same countries. Learn more on our Enterprise blog.
In the U.S., Chromebooks will also be expanding to more than 1,000 Best Buy stores nationwide -- doubling the number of stores Chromebooks are presently sold in -- over the next couple of weeks.
