The devices will be available on the 15th of June on Amazon and Best Buy websites. As we reported earlier, Amazon has already begun to prep their store front for the sale of these awesome devices.

Engadget explains the details within the above table in greater detail:
Education customers will get $20 per user pricing with a three-year contract, while enterprise and business customers will pay $28 per user for the same period. We’re told that purchasers can select the WiFi version of the Samsung Series 5 or the Acer Chromebook at that rate — if you need 3G-enabled models with 100MB of gratis Verizon Wireless data throw in, that’ll run you an extra $3 or so (an estimate provided to us here at I/O). As for overseas buyers? European carriers will hash out details in Spain, France, UK, Netherlands, Germany and Italy, but nothing’s being revealed today. We’re told that Google’s still evaluating what makes the most sense in those nations.
Consumers, of course, will pay a flat rate, and will be looking to Acer or Samsung for warranty work and technical support. The Series 5 gets going at $429 for the WiFi model, while the 3G edition (which does indeed include 100MB of data from Verizon each month for the life of the product) will go for $499. Acer’s Chromebook will cost $349 for the WiFi model, while the 3G variant will demand an undisclosed amount more.
Further details from the Google I/O question and answer session also revealed the following:
- For those who will choose to terminate their Chromebook contracts early; they will need to pay the outstanding balance for their device upfront.
- There are yet to be announcements of when the two devices will be available outside the USA, their pricing and where they will be sold.
- Google, alongside it’s partners will offer full tech support for devices that are purchased via monthly subscription.
- Devices that are damaged during the term of the contract will be replaced by Google and it’s partners.
