This week was a huge week for Chromebooks in education, and we announced our first three school districts that are going full 1:1 with 27,000 Chromebooks distributed to all of their students. This is in addition to hundreds more across 41 states that have brought these into the classroom.

However, the sales numbers and market stats pale in comparison to a story like this. If we can just touch a handful of lives like we have here, this is all worth it. This is why we do what we do....

Last year, we heard a moving Chromebook story from McDowell County Schools in North Carolina. Malachi, a student in the "exceptional childrens" program at Eastfield Global Magnet school, struggled with writing and school until he found his voice with the Chromebook.

Thanks to +Elaine Waters for sharing and to +Aaron Slutsky for bringing Chromebooks to his school!

This is his story...

Hi, Rajen. Just read about the Google/ project to bring Chromebooks to $ strapped schools. Is there any plan to extend the program to Canada? If so, how do I keep posted?

Awesome! Great to see how happy +Louis Gray has been with his Chromebook!

Yesterday was a big "upgrade" day - with Lion coming to my MacBook Air, and the Samsung Chromebook from Google I/O arriving on the same day. Last night, the Air just got completely bogged down and I was stuck, so I moved my PowerPoint deck to Google Docs, picked up the Chromebook and haven't touched the Air since.

+MG Siegler, +Parth Dhebar and some other Apple-backing friends of mine say my laptop is too pokey, with only 2 GB RAM (vs 4 recommended) and yes, that's no doubt true, but it's a tad frustrating. My Mac and I are going to have a talk. In the meantime, the Chromebook has been nothing short of excellent. I've been using it all day, the presentation went great, and I'm hours away from having to plug in again.

* Thanks very much +Rajen Sheth and all the Google team for Gmail & Google Apps.
Just read this great article.
Even being just as a business owner and free user I have got a lot from Google Apps. My Day at work starts with Google Apps and ends with Google+.
