It seems like there’s a new Chromebook announced every few days, but Chromeboxes? Not so much. But Oregon-based educational computer company CTL has just unveiled a new Chrome OS desktop. The Chromebox CBx1 is a small box with an Intel Celeron 3865U dual-core Kaby Lake processor, 4GB of RAM, and 32GB of storage. It’ll be […]
ViewSonic is probably best known for its displays and projectors. But the company’s latest device is a full-fledged computer (if you consider devices that run Chrome OS to be full-fledged computers). The ViewSonic NMP660 Chromebox is a small box that measures 6″ x 5.8″ x1.7″ and which weighs about 1.4 pounds. It features an Intel […]

Google has been adding touch-friendly features to Chrome OS for years, and a growing number of Chromebooks have featured touchscreen displays. But Acer is the first company to cut the keyboard. The new Acer Chromebook Tab 10 is a 9.7 inch tablet that runs Google’s Chrome operating system, supports Android apps, and has no keyboard […]

When Google announced a few years ago that it would offer at least 5 years of software updates for Chromebooks and Chromeboxes, that seemed like good news. After all, most Android phones only get updates for a year or two, if that. But compared to Windows and OS X, that 5 year lifespan is pretty […]

The era of true Chrome OS tablets is here. Last month Acer unveiled the $329 Chromebook Tab 10 designed for the education market. Now HP is launching a 2-in-1 tablet with a detachable keyboard and more powerful hardware. It’s called the HP Chromebook x2 12 and it’s basically what Google’s Pixelbook would look like if […]
Acer unveiled its latest Chrome OS mini-desktop computer at the Consumer Electronics Show in January, but the company didn’t provide any details about the price, release date, or even what kind of processor the new Acer Chromebox CXI3 would have. Now we have answers. According to product listings at internet retailers including CDW, TigerDirect, and […]

People have been running Ubuntu and other GNU/Linux distributions on Chromebooks for almost as long as Chromebooks have been available. While some folks have replaced Chrome OS altogether or created dual boot systems, the simplest method is to use Crouton, which allows you to install a Linux distribution in a chroot environment, allowing you to […]
The post Google’s Crostini lets you run GNU/Linux apps on Chromebooks without enabling developer mode appeared first on Liliputing.
Update: It turns out this article was based on faulty evidence. Chrome Unboxed saw the Open with Windows Application option because they had Crossover installed on their Pixelbook. While it’s already possible to use Crossover or WINE to run Windows apps on some Chromebooks that support Android apps, there’s currently no evidence that Google is […]
The post Update: Nope (It sure looks like Chromebooks will support some Windows apps soon) appeared first on Liliputing.
Google has confirmed that it’s bringing support for Linux apps to Chrome OS, which means you’ll be able to code on a Chromebook using Android Studio, an IDE like Eclipse, edit images using tools like GIMP, or run thousands of other apps. We’ve known this was coming for a while thanks to code commits and […]
It’s been nearly two years since Google started rolling out a feature that lets you run Android apps on Chromebooks. And while Android support has come a long way, there’s one thing Android apps couldn’t do on Chromebooks… until now: access an SD card. But starting with the latest Chrome OS beta, it looks like […]

The Acer Chromebook Tab 10 is the first tablet tablet to ship with Chrome OS… but it’s easy to think of this as an Android tablet that just happens to be able to run the desktop version of Google’s chrome web browser. It supports the Google Play Store and Android apps, allowing the Chromebook Tab […]
Acer is adding two new premium models to its Chromebook lineup. The new Acer Chromebook 13 features a 13.5 inch, 2256 x 1504 pixel IPS display with a 3:2 aspect ratio and support for up to 16GB of DDR3 RAM and up to an Intel Core i3-8130U dual-core Kaby Lake Refresh processor. The Acer Chromebook […]

Acer is is one of the biggest Chromebook makers around… and the company makes some of the biggest Chromebooks. I don’t think anyone else offers Chrome OS laptops with 15.6 inch displays, but Acer’s been doing it for years. The latest Acer Chromebook 15 is a relatively low-cost laptop with an Intel Apollo Lake processor, […]

Chromebooks aren’t just cheap laptops with Google’s Chrome OS software anymore. There’s a wide range of Chrome OS devices these days, including entry-level and premium devices, and new form factors including tablets. But one thing we haven’t seen yet is a Chromebook with AMD or NVIDIA graphics. But that could change soon. Xda-developers spotted a […]

The HP Chromebox G2 is a small computer with support for up to an Intel Core i7-8650U processor, 16GB of RAM, and 64GB of solid state storage. It runs Google’s Chrome operating system and it’s also one of the first Chromeboxes to support the Google Play Store and Android apps. Maybe it’ll officially support Linux […]
There are Android smartphones with Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 chips, and soon there will be Windows laptops and tablets powered by the same processor (or one very much like it anyway). So what’s next? A 2-in-1 Chromebook with a detachable keyboard, apparently. About Chromebooks spotted Chromium source code commits pointing to an upcoming device that matches […]

A growing number of Chromebooks have touchscreen displays. Some have convertible tablet-style designs. And at least one isn’t really a notebook at all: it’s just a tablet that doesn’t even come with an optional keyboard. While you can interact with any of these devices with your fingertips, sometimes stylus input is a better option for […]

Over the past few years we’ve seen a few convertible Chromebooks with 360-degree hinges and touchscreen displays that let you use the notebooks in tablet mode. But 2018 is the year we’re starting to see the first true Chrome OS tablets. The $600 HP Chromebook x2 is a 2-in-1 tablet with a detachable keyboard. And […]

There are a growing number of Chromebooks that can now run Linux applications thanks to Google’s Project Crostini. And when I say growing number, I mean that this week Google added support for 18 Chromebooks. In a nutshell, if you have a Chromebook with an Intel Apollo Lake processor, you should be able to enable […]

When Google first launched Chrome OS, the operating system was basically a glorified web browser designed to run web apps. Over time Google added support for running some applications offline and built in tools that let you do things like watch videos without an internet connection, making the platform a little more useful. A few […]
