Are chromebooks really available on a monthly rental fee? I don't see any reference to any subscription fee on Google's chromebooks website. And will I get free hardware upgrades on the upfront payment schemes as well for Samsung and acer devices?

If not, then what about all that Google had said before and the 'always new' phenomena and those ads which showed that even if you lost your device you could get one for free? And what about all those other ads which told about free software and hardware upgrades? Are they history now?

Well, if you want a chromebook you could always justdual-boot ChromeOS on your laptop.... As for this chromebook-leasing, this is the first I've heard it brought up again in a while - it's kind of faded away into the background again XD.
