Sure, you can already snag one of those Chromebooks from places such as Amazon, Best Buy and Google’s own Play shop. But, starting today, the Mountain View-based company is making various Chrome OS-sporting laptops available at more retailers around the globe — over 6,600, to be specific. Google says the likes of Walmart and Staples will now have a selection of Chromebooks up for grabs, while Office Depot, Office Max and Fry’s are expected to do the same “in the coming months.” For those across the pond, you can expect to find some of Google’s laptops at Dixon retailers in the UK, as well as Mediamarket, FNAC and Elgiganten stores in the Netherlands, France and Sweden, respectively. All in all, this is definitely a good thing for Google’s plan to get its Chromebooks in as many locations as possible.
