With all the talk revolving around ‘Kevin’ and ‘Gru’ of late, one of the devices I’ve been extremely excited about has been relatively silent.
‘Cave’ has been absent around Chrome Unboxed for a little while. We still feel that ‘Cave’ is the ASUS Chromebook 2, but nothing we’ve seen recently has been conclusive. We’ve seen action in the Chromium OS repositories about ‘Cave’, sure, but nothing with any real evidence of anything we didn’t already know.
A commit found this morning by Gabriel gives us the evidence we need to deduce that the upcoming Chromebook known as ‘Cave’ will have a high resolution screen.
Not sure about everyone else, but screen resolution was one of my few gripes with the original Flip; the other 2 being performance and that gigantic bezel. Everything else about it I’ve loved since it launched.
My original worry with a high-res screen was performance. All those pixels need horsepower. Luckily, ‘Cave’ will be outfitted with Skylake processors. Core i or Core m doesn’t matter much, as we’ve seen from the HP Chromebook 13 G1, Skylake simply flies in Chromebooks.
We feel like ‘Cave’ is getting close, so hopefully we can dig up what the actual display panel is and get some more firm stats to you all soon. Until then, who’s pumped for ‘Cave’?
