We’ve come across some interesting info regarding a new board, codenamed ‘Reef’. What we know about it thus far is pretty sparse, but one particular characteristic of this board is very interesting.

Well, the time has come to address the elephant in the room. October has long passed and with it Google’s annual hardware event. As expected, the Pixel Slate, a.k.a. ‘Nocturne’ made its debut. Love it or hate it, the “tablet first” Chromebook #MadeByGoogle is the belle of the ball at the moment and clearly the […]
On just about a daily basis, I check the Samsung Chromebook Pro to see if “Crostini” has finally been enabled to bring me the new evolution of Linux app support. Sadly, I have been disappointed at every attempt. For good reason, the Kaby Lake generation of processors from Intel has been at the center of […]
It’s been a while since we did a new Chromebook roundup and suffice it to say, the list is getting a tad overwhelming. Just keeping track of all the new devices currently in the works is a full-time job in and of itself. So, we’re going to do a quick rundown of most of the […]
In the second half of last year, as development of ‘Eve’ (now known as the Pixelbook) was moving into high gear ahead of the October launch, one of the things that was perplexing for us here at Chrome Unboxed was the addition of Wake on Voice being added to the board files. Wake on Voice […]

A new week, a new Chromebook finds its way to the ever-growing list of new devices coming in the very near future. The latest addition is another Apollo Lake-based convertible built off of the ‘reef’ baseboard.
It’s easy to get excited about the “next big thing” in Chrome OS. Styli, detachables and tablets. (Oh My!) These things are fabulous and we love them. But, latest and greatest do not an ecosystem make.
We recently shared news of another convertible device, code named ‘Snappy’, that looks to be adding stylus support. The new Chromebook is being manufactured by an ODM making it a little tricky to pinpoint the final namesake of the device.
We haven’t done this little dance for a bit, but here we are again unveiling yet another Chromebook on the scene. While we await all the devices before it, ‘Snappy’ may jump right into the mix running and we’ll tell you why.
We’re not trying to beat a dead horse here. But, when we say we are convinced that Chromebooks and Chrome OS aren’t going anywhere anytime soon; we truly believe it. Amidst all the talk of Andromeda and the future of Google’s operating systems as we know it, Chromebook development has not slowed even the slightest. […]
