NEW YORK- Google wants to undermine Microsoft and unveiled its cheapest Chromebook yet priced at $149.

It wants to gain a stronger foothold in the school and overseas markets. There are two versions, one made by Hisense and the other by Haier. Hisence's can be ordered at Wal-Mart and Haier's will be available through Amazon.com.

Chromebooks don't have a hard drive and function as terminals dependent on an Internet connection. They have steadily gained popularity, especially in schools. The roll outs coincide with Microsoft's arrival of a lower-priced Surface tablet.
