Refresh a Mac or PC with ChromeOS Flex and Chrome Education Upgrade
ChromeOS Flex is a version of ChromeOS made to modernise your school's existing PCs and Mac devices at no additional cost. And it's easy to manage ChromeOS Flex devices alongside existing Chromebooks — as with Chromebooks, management and enrolment is all done with Chrome Education upgrade and Google Admin console. When you have a device from your fleet nearby, follow these two steps to get started.
