Google to rent Chrome OS laptops for $20 per month?

Google to rent Chrome OS laptops for $20 per month?
Neowin has reported this week that Google is set to begin releasing Chrome OS netbook this summer, as early as late June.

However, the devices will not be sold in a conventional manner, and will instead be sold as a "subscription based model."

The netbooks will be available for $10-20 per month, and Google will replace faulty hardware for the lifetime of the subscription.

Google may also allow you to buy the device for a one-time fee.

It is unclear which manufacturers will create the Chrome OS devices, but Acer and others are expected to have models ready by the summer.
