Chromebook Management through Google Apps - Very Impressive

I have not really had a great reason to explore Chromebooks in an educational setting as 'wrongly' or 'rightly' I perceived them as a poor cousin to what Microsoft and Apple offers in this space.

Last week however I came across this clip which really changed my mind about these devices and in many ways made them a possible clubhouse leader in terms devices for schools who are using primarily using Google Apps for Education for productivity.  

After watching this clip I realized that the security features, deployment and management of these devices through the Google Apps admin panel is far superior to anything else currently available.  And the price point is exceptional when you consider you can get three good Chromebooks for the price of one Macbook Air

Take a look, and I would love to hear your thoughts and experiences about Chromebooks
