Our PTO is looking to purchase bulk Chromebooks for the students at our school. Does anyone know the best place to do this with? Looking to get the most with our money.
Thanks so much!

I tried purchasing some Chromebooks for my non-profit. I was told by my Dell rep, that they are out and won't be able to fulfill orders until February at the earliest. I've seen schools raiding Walmart stores for Chromebooks and cheap laptops at this point. With remote learning, the country has seen a spike in demand that isn't being fulfilled. Best of luck to you.

Gary, best bet is to throw Neverware on commodity desktop hardware. That's what many schools are doing to solve the Chromebook shortage needs.
Six months later, I'd love an update on what your PTO did regarding its need for Chromebooks, and if any posts here on the TechSoup community helped.
