Bunyips and Chromebooks in Australia are seen at about the same frequency but Google is looking to change that announcing more access to more Chromebooks in Australia.
From today Chromebooks will be appearing in more stores including Amazon, Officeworks, JB Hi-Fi and the new Chromebooks website. Manufacturers who are bringing the new Chromebooks to Australia include Acer, Asus, HP and Lenovo but unfortunately Google themselves are not bringing the Pixelbooks or the Pixel Slate to our shores.
While Chromebooks have made a big splash in the US, especially in the education sector, they are yet to have any significant impact here in Australia. Google are hoping to change that with this increase in availability.
Chromebooks have come a long way since they were first introduced to Australia with the ability to run Android apps, an inbuilt Google Assistant (on some), Family Link monitoring and improved accessibility settings making Chromebooks a compelling purchase — although most of those listed on the new webstore could be considered “cheap”.
If you are in the market for a Chromebook there’s no better time in Australia to buy one either online or in-store.
