Chromebooks are the heart of the Chrome OS experience. At their core, Chromebooks are the purest expression of Google's operating system. Here, you'll find only articles and stories about Chromebooks, their features, and what makes them great.
Similar to last year’s pre-October-4th timeline, details are bubbling up left and right surrounding the newest Chromebook to grab the public’s attention: ‘Nocturne’. Some of these details we’re sharing today were unearthed a couple weeks ago by the folks over at XDA, but they somehow slipped past my radar. In combination to what we’ve seen […]
For some, like us, the 2018-2019 school year is underway. As more and more students head back to the classroom, the time to grab a new Chromebook is now and we’ve got some deals to save you a little dough.

Last week, Chrome OS version 68 started rolling out to a number of devices but, as with most releases lately, a large number of Chromebooks and Chromeboxes did not receive the update immediately.

Our contacts at Acer reached out last week to clarify that the world’s first Chrome OS Tablet was specifically designed for educational use. However, thanks to reseller channels, there are still a few places you can get your hands on one. Today, Amazon joined that short list.
Just 11 days ago I wrote an article titled New Chromebook ‘Atlas’ Could Be #madebyGoogle. In that article we looked at a few reasons we believed ‘Atlas’ could possibly be one of the next #madebyGoogle Chromebooks. ONE of the next, you ask? Yeah, I have a gut feeling that there will be two or three […]

One of the things my first real Chromebook came equipped with was wireless network access. The HP Chromebook 14 (the first device I did an unboxing of) came with a free, paltry amount of data each month from T-Mobile. If you wanted, you could up that amount and pay for a data plan, but I […]
When the Acer Chromebook 13 and 13 Spin were unveiled in New York, we were given a tentative release date of September and it looks like the Chromebook giant is going to be spot on for that launch window.
