Google giving all new Chromebook buyers 1TB of free storage for two years

Google says they are getting in the holiday spirit and passing on a great deal for consumers.
All new Chromebook buyers will get 1TB of free Google Drive storage, good for two years - double the normal promotional period for such offers.

Says Google: "Chromebooks make day-to-day computing fast, simple and secure, whether you're searching for a great pumpkin pie recipe or sharing a family photo from Google Drive. And now, as a bonus for the holiday season, new Chromebook buyers can get 1TB of Google Drive storage for two years -- almost $240 in value -- absolutely free.

That's enough space to keep more than 100,000 awkward holiday sweater pics safe and shareable in Drive. With that much free storage, you can use your Chromebook for work, play and pretty much everything else you'll do this holiday season.

The 1TB comes with the purchase of a new, eligible Chromebook for as little as $199. You'll find them at these retail stores and online outlets or on Google Play. Just be sure to redeem the offer before January 1, 2015."

How about taking the $240 value and putting a 1TB SSD inside the machine. I don't use nor trust MY stuff in the "cloud". Would rather have local storage.
