HP is joining Acer and Asus in offering a new convertible Chromebook aimed at the education market. Unveiled today by Google, the new HP Chromebook X260 11 G1 Education Edition is a notebook with a 360-degree hinge, a touchscreen display, optional stylus support, and a very long name. Detailed specs aren’t available, but the notebook is […]
HP launches rugged Chromebook 360 11 for education is a post from: Liliputing
There are a growing number of Chromebooks with convertible tablet-style designs. So it makes sense that over the past few years Google has added some touchscreen-friendly features to Chrome OS, like an on-screen keyboard for typing without touching a physical keyboard. Now Google is rolling out the stable version of Chrome OS 57, and it includes […]
Some Chromebooks have Intel chips. Others have ARM-based processors. But soon there may be another option. Over the past few months, there have been signs that AMD-powered Chromebooks are on the way. In December, Chrome Unboxed spotted mentions of an AMD-powered board codenamed “Jadeite” in the Chromium repositories. In March, the website spotted another AMD-powered […]
The Samsung Chromebook Pro is a notebook with a 12.3 inch, 2400 x 1600 pixel display, an Intel Core M3 Skylake processor, 4GB of RAM, 32GB of storage, and a convertible design that lets you use the notebook like a tablet. It also comes with a pen. First unveiled at the Consumer Electronics Show in […]
Samsung’s first Chromebook with an Intel Core M processor and a convertible tablet-style design is just about ready to go. Amazon, B&H, and Newegg are all taking orders (or pre-orders) for the Samsung Chromebook Pro for $550. The laptop looks virtually identical to the $450 Samsung Chromebook Plus that launched earlier this year, but while […]
The original Asus Chromebook Flip C100 was an unexpected delight when it launched: a relatively inexpensive 10 inch convertible notebook with Google’s Chrome OS and beta support for Android apps, allowing you to use the device as either a Chromebook or a pseudo Android tablet. Weighing just under 2 pounds, it also didn’t feel crazy […]
Google rolled out Instant Tethering for Android devices earlier this year, making it easy to share your phone’s internet connection with other devices without needing to enter a password. Just enable the feature on any devices that are tied to your Google account and which support Instant Tethering, and if your tablet has no internet […]

Intel is set to launch its first 10nm chips based on a new “Cannonlake” architecture in late 2017 or early 2018. But we already know that there are some folks testing early versions of the chips, thanks to leaked benchmark results. And it looks like at least one Chromebook (or maybe Chromebox) with a Cannonlake […]

There are a growing number of Chromebooks with touchscreen displays, including some models with a convertible tablet-style form factor. And while it’s not particularly difficult to interact with Chrome OS using your fingertips, it looks like developers at Google are trying to make things easier. Google’s François Beaufort notes that the latest Chrome OS Canary build […]
Acer’s latest Chromebook features a rugged design, an 11.6 inch IPS display (with optional touch), and a choice of Intel Celeron, Core i3, or Core i5 Skylake processor options. The Acer Chromebook 11 C771 is available starting today for $280 and up… or at least the entry-level models are. That $280 price tag is for […]
Google’s latest Chromebook is the first to feature built-in support for Google Assistant, the first to support pen input, and the first to feature a convertible design that lets you flip the screen back 360 degrees to use the computer as a tablet. It’s called the Google Pixelbook, and it comes with up to an […]
Google Pixelbook launches Oct 31st for $999 and up is a post from: Liliputing
When Google launched the first Chromebook Pixel in 2013, a lot of people scratched their heads. It was a laptop with some pretty phenomenal hardware (albeit not enough built-in storage space) that ran an operating system most people associated with dirt cheap netbook-like laptops. I quite liked it, but acknowledged that the $1299 price tag […]
The first Windows laptops with Qualcomm Snapdragon processors are set to ship in 2018. But it looks like they won’t be the only Snapdragon-powered laptops. Xda-developers reports that recent code commits show that Chrome OS developers are working with a new board featuring a Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 processor. That doesn’t necessarily mean a Chromebook with […]

HP is launching two new Chromebooks aimed at the education market, and the company also has an updated Chromebox meant for use in schools. The HP Chromebox G2 basically a small desktop computer designed to run Google’s Chrome operating system (with support for Google Play and Android apps). It measures about 5.9″ x 5.9″ x […]
Intel and AMD are rolling out updates to help mitigate the impact of the recently disclosed Spectre and Meltdown vulnerabilities. Microsoft is rolling out security updates for Windows. Linux distributions are rolling out updates. Apple has updates for iOS and macOS, and Google has updates for Android and Chrome OS. But those last few may […]
You’ve been able to run Android apps on some Chromebooks since mid-2016 by enabling access to the Google Play Store and then downloading and installing apps from the store. You can also sideload Android APK files, but you need to enable developer mode to do that… which will wipe your data and loosen some of the […]
Chromebooks have been around for nearly a decade, and over the past few years we’ve also started to see convertible models with touchscreen displays and 360-degree hinges that let you use a Chromebook in tablet mode. But you know what we haven’t seen? A straight-up Chrome OS tablet. It looks like that’s going to change […]
Acer Chrome OS tablet breaks cover at Bett 2018 show is a post from: Liliputing
It looks like the first Chrome OS tablets without physical keyboards could be on the way soon. But… what’s the point? After all, Google already has an operating system that runs on tablets. It’s called Android. And one of the key features of a Chromebook is that it’s a desktop-style operating system with support for […]

About a week after releasing version 64 of the Chrome web browser for multiple platforms, Google is updating Chrome OS to version 64 as well. The update brings all the same browser enhancements including the ability to mute web pages on a site-by-site basis (so that once you mute a page, you’ll never hear an […]
Want to run a full-fledged GNU/Linux desktop environment on a Chromebook? While it’s possible to replace Chrome OS entirely, the simplest method is to run Ubuntu or another Linux distro alongside Chrome OS by enabling developer mode and using Crouton. But soon you may be able to run some native Linux software without enabling developer mode (and without […]
