Google might give away 100GB of free cloud storage to Chromebook buyers

Chromebook Free Google Drive

Consumers who bought one of Google’s (GOOG) browser-based Chromebook computers may soon be getting 100GB of free cloud storage through Google Drive. A man by the name of François Beaufort recently discovered a piece of code in the Chromium source that states “Get 100 GB free with Google Drive,” according to Chrome Story. Google normally charges $4.99 per month for the 100GB option, so the Mountain View-based company’s generosity will allow Chromebook owners to save almost $60 a year. Unfortunately, it seems as if the offer will only be available for the newly released Chromebook and Chromebox by Samsung (005930), and users who bought one of the first-generation Chromebooks may be left in the dark.
