With Chromebook availability in Australia limited now with the demise of initial Chromebook launch partner Dick Smith, and the other Chromebook launch partner JB Hi-Fi no longer listing the devices on their website, Google has finally updated their Australian (and international) Chromebook site.

The site has links for news on Chromebooks – well, it’s a link to the Chrome blog saying that Chrome OS isn’t going anywhere – as well as links to resources for educators and corporate IT admins interested in converting their workplace to Chromebooks.

The site includes a device selector that can let you know which Chromebooks are available and which one is right for you. The devices are a little behind, with the Acer Chromebook R11 not listed, nor are Lenovo’s Chromebooks, or Dell’s. But it’s a decent resource. It also doesn’t offer input on where to buy actually buy a Chromebook (or Chromebox, ChromeBase or ChromeBit). For that, StaticIce is still probably your best friend.

Google’s Chromebooks are doing quite well in the education market here in Australia and this could go a long way to helping people trying to find out which one is right for them. Head over and check it out.

    I couldn’t figure out how to buy from that website. The buy now button doesn’t do what it says. Ended up buying the 2015 Toshiba Chromebook 2 from B&H.

    It’s a pretty decent machine. It’s getting quite hard to recommend a Chromebook with the hoops people have to go through to get one in Australia. But I still love mine.

    This will be the 4th Chromebook in our home. My wife and kids use them for browsing, homework, YouTube, socialising, etc. I have not done any maintenance on any of them. They are just so reliable!
