Turning old Windows PCs into Chromebooks for education

Davenport estimates that to get a new machine and the proper license, it would cost around $400 for each new Windows computer and $200 for each new Chromebook. “With Neverware it’s costing me 50 bucks.” The school is now adapting several computer labs to run Neverware chromebooks. “Hey, that’s an interesting model,” says Davenport with a chuckle. “Run on your oldest junk for next to no money.”

I’m surprised I haven’t heard of more people doing this. Combine this idea with Google Apps for Education — it’d give clapped-out classroom PCs a new life.
