When it comes to the Chromebook, Google isn't shy about its beliefs that it is the perfect computing device for education sectors around the world. And here in the US, schools and students have started to feel the same way. In a blog post, where it highlights different ways in which educational institutions in California are using Chromebooks, Google pointed out that recent IDC numbers have its line of computers as being the best-selling device in K-12 education. The report takes into consideration laptops and tablets, so this is a notable achievement for the technology company.

Some school districts like Montgomery County, MD, for example, are using over 50,000 Chromebooks, and that's after only beginning adoption earlier this year. But Google isn't quite satisfied, as it wants Chromebook to keep reaching even more students and schools -- especially outside its home soil, where resources are particularly limited.
