Chromebook management question.

Our school has previously purchased Chromebooks from a supplier with the Chrome device management as part of the package.  They are excellent and easy to use and we want to purchase 40 more.

The question is do we need the Chrome device management? It cost about $90 more per Chromebook to have it and we were wondering if it was essential.   We can pick up Chromebooks from retailers for under $300 but they don't come with the management system and I don't know if they include the Google Apps for Education licence.

Has anyone purchased multiple Chromebooks without Chrome device management? 

Any thoughts would be helpful.

    We have approx 100 chromebooks and are managing them ourselves. Have given each chromebook a static IP address and hoping that will help. It is a bit of a trial so we will see how we go. Have been doing this since beginning of this term and so far so good.
