If you’ve been around the website or the YouTube channel of late, you’ve likely noticed a trend towards favorable reviews on newer Chromebooks. I don’t think that is a fad or a coincidence: I think Chromebooks in general are just getting better hardware. Let’s face it, Chrome OS is the same on every single Chromebook […]
Similar to our reviews section, unboxing Chromebooks and other Chrome OS devices are central to our DNA. It's where our name came from, after all. In this section, you'll find our initial reactions to devices as we pull them out of the box. Sometimes, that's the most telling part of a device review. Be sure to check out the reviews that go with each unboxing.
The Acer Chromebook 514 has been an interesting study in excitement and patience. Debuted all the way back in August of 2018, the spec sheet alone was enough to cause us to get excited about a proper follow up to the quite-popular Acer Chromebook 14. The problem? We’re just now seeing this device making the […]
November and December have been crazy for us here at Chrome Unboxed. Between Google’s new hardware and most major Chromebook vendors launching new devices, it has been a non-stop stream for the past few weeks. Don’t get me wrong, that’s a good thing for everyone!
The fourth quarter of 2018 has been prolific at delivering more higher-end Chromebooks than any other time in the history of the platform. Where once upon a time we only saw one or two quality devices in a given year, we’re not almost overwhelmed with options, configurations, price points, and manufacturers.
The ever-important purchasing season is rapidly approaching. Black Friday and the crazy shopping season that follows it is nearly upon us, so we’re trying as hard as we can to get impressions and videos posted so you, dear reader, can make a decision on a Chromebook if you are eyeballing one for a gift.
All the way back in May of this year, we traveled up to New York to attend Acer’s hardware event and got to spend a little time with the Acer Chromebook Spin 13. The Spin 15 was also there along with the Acer Chromebook 13 (non-spin version).
The newest member of the Samsung Chromebook family is upon us, and as we’ve had it in-hand for a few days, we thought it time to give everyone a few first impressions after spending a day or two working from the device. To be honest, we’re refining how we do these videos still, so I’m […]
Earlier this week, I published a relatively-thorough article detailing my initial impressions with HP’s newest device: the HP Chromebook x2. This device does a lot for a very reasonable price, but you can read all about that in my previous article if that is more your speed. For most people, however, we know you like […]
We’ve been to a few events in the past few months. Between Google’s October 4th Hardware Event and CES, we had ample time to see, touch and test out the Google Home Max. As these things tend to go, however, we never took advantage of that opportunity. I wanted to. I really did. I just […]
All clad in aluminum, this Chromebook improves on all the stuff Acer got right the first time around with the 15.6-inch Chromebook. Last year’s model was all plastic, heavy, and not the most impressive looking thing that has come through the office.
Sure, we may be smack-dab in the middle of all of Google’s latest hardware news, including the latest Belle of the Ball Pixelbook, but that doesn’t mean the rest of the Chrome OS world is stopping. Today, we have in the office what I feel to be the true successor to one of the most […]
With a maxed-out spec sheet and matching price tag, our expectations for HP’s latest Chromebook are pretty high. Can the first impression hold up under all of that? Check it out!
