New powerfull Chromebook

Postby viking60 » 14 Jul 2014, 11:36

The new Chromebook has the Intel i3 processors. This is a step up from the rather under powered Chromebooks that we have seen so far.
The Chromebook is now a laptop and not a big "pad". Although Google do not need much power for the Chromebooks since they are powered by Linux; this is more of a fully fledged laptop.

That sure is bad news for Windows 8 based/forced laptops out there. Those laptops simply do not sell so the stores will look for something to replace them - something that sells.

Maybe this is it - even if it is part of a "cloud" concept.
