Google revealed yesterday at their Intel Development Forum that their Chromebook is equipped with new hardware from their brand new OEM partners in addition to existing ones. The new devices include laptops or notebooks from Asus, Toshiba, Acer, and HP. Google said that these devices will roll out over the coming months.
The new laptops use Intel’s latest processor architecture. The benefits of this processor Google has said, include power and performance. Darrell Etherington from TechCrunch continues to describe the new hardware, “Google says that leads to battery life that lasts “all day,” though it isn’t being very specific about hardware specs or details yet. The Acer Chromebook is described as “light and portable,” while the HP Chromebook14 will offer a variety of color options as well as 4G connectivity on some models, and Asus is offering a Chromebox for portable desktop computing.”
Pricing and purchase details are not yet available for these notebooks. Google’s already existing Chroombook and Chroombook Pixel have remained pretty obsolete in the mainstream tech world. We will see if these new devices fair better.
