Running out of digital storage space? Then you might want to check out Google's latest holiday deal.

The company announced Friday on its Google Drive Blog that people who purchase new Chromebooks during the holiday season will receive free Google Drive storage as part of the deal. The 1 terabyte (TB) of Google Drive storage is equivalent to a $240 value and will be available to Chromebook buyers for two years.

"That's enough space to keep more than 100,000 awkward holiday sweater pics safe and shareable in Drive," the blogpost said.

A terabyte of memory can hold the equivalent of 17,000 hours of music, 320,000 photos, or 250 two-hour movies.
