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 […]
It’s really difficult to make a solid case for dishing out the cash it takes to get your hands on Google’s Pixel Slate when the HP Chromebook x2 can be had for under $500 most days. While Google’s tablet represents the cream of the crop from a hardware standpoint, it really doesn’t offer anything more […]
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 love Chromebooks so inherently, we love Chromebook deals and Best Buy has been killing it as of late in that department. You can still snag the HP Chromebook x360 at the insanely low price of $449 and now, two more premium devices have had their prices slashed by a phenomenal $200. For the productive […]
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 […]
As we start the year here in 2019, the Chromebook landscape has evolved, giving us new form factors in devices like the Pixel Slate and HP Chromebook X2 while at the same time delivering up solid, high-quality Chromebooks left and right with devices like the HP x360, Dell Inspiron Chromebook, and Lenovo Yoga C630. As […]
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 […]
The haze of Black Friday took about a week to wear off, but we all know the story: sales will continue off and on from now until the end of the year. Even the last week of December will likely bring about multiple end of the year sales to get products off shelves before the […]
Yes, I know that title is bold: especially in reference to two devices that aren’t even commercially available at this point. However, I don’t need to lay a finger on either one to tell you 6 ways that the Google Pixel Slate (or any nicely-outfitted Chrome OS Tablet) will outdo the very impressive iPad Pro.
