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 […]
As we anticipated, ASUS has launched a new Chromebook lineup just days before CES 2019 in Las Vegas. While there isn’t a true flagship in the mix, the rumored Chrome OS tablet from ASUS is and it joins three new Gemini Lake Chromebooks (the first to market) to round off their latest educational offerings
If you’ve used a Chrome OS tablet like the new Pixel Slate, Chromebook Tab 10, or the HP Chromebook x2, you may have come across an odd and annoying trait they all seem to share: jank and lag. While not surprising on the under-powered Acer Chromebook Tab 10 and it’s Rockchip OP1 processor, this behavior […]
Chrome OS tablets are still a pretty new thing here at the end of 2018. After all, we didn’t see the first true Chrome OS tablet until the Acer Chromebook Tab 10 hit the scene in the early parts of summer. Six months is hardly enough time for a new form factor to fully emerge […]
This one hurts quite a bit. Back in August, we reported that the Pixel Slate (then known as ‘Nocturne’) was being tested with the ultra-fast NVMe storage available in the Pixelbook’s top-level configuration. The commit was pretty straightforward and everything was pointing clearly towards the Pixel Slate equipping this much-improved storage at least on the […]
In the past couple months, we’ve been a bit overwhelmed with new Chromebook models left and right. From HP, Dell, Google, Lenovo, and Acer, the new mid-to-high-end Chromebooks have been great and we’ve really enjoyed working through reviews for each. As excited as we’ve been by all these devices, there is a new frontier we’ve […]
Since we began here at Chrome Unboxed, the landscape of Chromebooks has changed mightily. From an ecosystem dominated by clamshells we transitioned to an ecosystem dominated by convertibles. In 2018, we are set for yet another transition: the transition to tablets.
Product releases like the Pixel Slate don’t come around every day. With this Chrome OS device, Google is introducing a new form factor and paradigm for Chromebooks moving forward and this one is unlike anything that has come before it.
It has been a month and a half (7 weeks, to be more precise) since the Pixel Slate was unveiled at Google’s hardware event. When we ventured up to NYC for the event, I was hopeful that we’d not only see ‘Nocturne’ in the flesh, but that we’d also be rolling out of the event […]
ASUS hasn’t been silent in the expanding Chrome OS market but their latest contributions are certainly not going to knock anyone’s socks off. The C423 and C523 are decent budget models that will likely appeal to the average consumer but lack the built-quality, power and features of the Kaby Lake flagships on offer from competitors […]
