Google extends lifecycle of chromebooks and boxes to five years


Another move by Google to lower the cost of their computing model.

Google announces that it is extending the lifecycle of Chromebooks to five years, up from the original four.
This means that Google will support all minimalist notebooks that use the fledgling Chrome operating system for five years, including the original reference prototype, the Google Cr-48.
