It looks like tech giant Google is going to be very generous this Christmas.

Techshout reported that Chromebook buyers will be treated to a two-year subscription of 1TB w worth of free Drive storage ($240 in value).

Those who would like to get this pretty irresistible offer will need to purchase their Chromebook in Google Play and retail stores this year. The free storage can be redeemed before January 1st of 2015, and the offer will be valid for two years.

How big is 1TB? “That’s enough space to keep more than 100,000 awkward holiday sweater pics safe and shareable in Drive,” said Group Product Manager Alex Vogenthaler in a blog post.

Google Chromebooks, which are sold in shops and brands like Amazon, Best Buy, and Google Play start at $199. It runs on devices like Acer, Asus, HP, Toshiba, and Samsung. The official website describes that it “Boots in seconds. Nothing complicated to learn. Comes with your favorite Google apps.”

Digital Trends explains that this recently-announced feature could only mean that Google is simply making up for a shortcoming–most affordable PCs out there included a 500GB hard drive, while a Chromebook usually has around $16GB. ” Still, free is free, and this deal may help Google’s machines fly off shelves this holiday season,” said the report.

Google will reportedly give more announcements on Chromebook deals as the holiday season approaches.
