Chromebook tablets are still struggling to come into their own as a true replacement for the dying Android tablet platform but one place the emerging form-factor definitely shines is in the education sector. Portability, versatility and relatively low costs make “Chromeblets” an awesome alternative for iPads and traditional laptops. CTL, an industry leader in Educational […]

In the realm of detachable Chromebooks, there are few at this point. Two, specifically, and we’ve been asked time and again to pit them against one another to determine which is the best purchase. Between the Pixel Slate and the HP x2, there are lots of similarities and just as many differences. While it isn’t […]
The HP Chromebook x2 is one of only 2 options if you are in the market for a detachable Chromebook right now. Though we have a suspicion that more options will be arriving this year, we don’t know anything as fact right now and sometimes the best option is the one you can purchase right […]
Just this weekend we uncovered news of an upcoming duo of tablets coming soon that will feature the newer Mediatek 8183 processor. The duo will both be using the baseboard ‘Flapjack’ and look to be arriving with both an 8-inch and 10-inch version. And while I’m pretty excited about a couple smaller tablet options with […]
It’s really difficult to say when, or even if, Chrome OS tablets will ever take a firm grasp in the consumer market but that hasn’t stopped OEMs from pushing forward in developing the recent form-factor of our favorite operating system. For education and casual use, the RockChip-powered 10.1″ tablets from Acer, ASUS and now CTL […]
We don’t get the opportunity to do versus videos as often as I’d like, but we’re ready to try and change that in the coming months. The truth is, with review units it is pretty difficult to catch two interesting devices in the office at the same time. Right now we have quite a few […]
Business Insider reported a few days ago that Google has internally communicated to employees in its laptop and tablet division to find new jobs within the company. Since the Pixelbook, supposed Pixelbook 2, and Pixel Slate are the only current laptop and tablet devices Google makes, this move (if it is actually happening) could easily […]
We haven’t spoken much about ‘Cheza’ and Qualcomm-powered Chromebooks in quite a while around here. To be honest, I fully expected to see something from this entire effort at CES or at MWC last week, but we’re still waiting to actually see something emerge from Qualcomm or any other manufacturer.
It is no secret that one of the big struggles right now for Chrome OS, Chromebooks, detachables, and tablets is overview and split-screen mode. While the majority of the OS can run smooth on various chipsets, we see severely crippled performance across the board when it comes to both the overview mode and split-screen views. […]
We’ve talked quite a bit about the slightly-mysterious ‘Sarien’ in the past week. From its emergence as a new flagship Chrome OS device to the fact that it looks to be made by Dell, ‘Sarien’ is starting to add up to a very intriguing option in the high-end Chromebook space.
We just uncovered a new flagship Chromebook in ‘Sarien’ yesterday and this device already has some head-scratching development happening over at the Chromium Repositories. As we continue sorting through it, we’ll obviously continue sharing our findings, but one thing that is pretty straightforward is a line of commits that point directly to not only a […]
CTL CEO Erik Stromquist was right in the thick of things in Las Vegas last week but the Oregon-based Chromebook maker’s leader wasn’t there to debut a new device. CTL’s new found partnership with Sprint and their deep ties with Google were reason enough to make the trip to CES. Instead, CTL is looking to […]
