Vulnerabilities in internet browsers aren’t uncommon. As a matter of fact, the majority of minor and major updates include patches, fixes and hardening tools of some sort. It’s just the nature of the beast. As updates arrive, there are always those that are looking to exploit new and undiscovered flaws in the software. Thankfully, there […]
We talk about a ton of stuff here at Chrome Unboxed. From Chromebooks to Chromecast to Google Assistant, the world of Chrome OS is pretty far-reaching. We save our News section for the things that are breaking news to our readers.
The Acer Chromebook 514 has been an interesting study in excitement and patience. Debuted all the way back in August of 2018, the spec sheet alone was enough to cause us to get excited about a proper follow up to the quite-popular Acer Chromebook 14. The problem? We’re just now seeing this device making the […]
Well, we reached out for clarification from Lenovo and this morning and that’s exactly what we received. Despite being de-listed and appearing to be on the way out of Lenovo’s inventory, it looks as though the 1080P Core i3 and Core i5 models of the Chromebook Yoga will soon return. Just in case you missed […]
It was just this weekend that we discovered Lenovo’s refreshed E-series Chromebook lineup. While it didn’t appear that any models were available in North America, a listing has popped up in Lenovo’s store for the 2nd Gen Chromebook 500e and you can already secure yours for a very impressive $339. In case you missed it, […]
Lenovo has been busy over the past couple of weeks. We uncovered a new lineup of Educations devices featuring Intel’s Gemini Lake processors. The expedition that led to that discovery was spurred by an email from George E. informing me that their flagship Yoga Chromebook line was about to be whittled down significantly. The 4K […]
Ambient light sensors on Chromebooks are nothing new and have been included in a vast array of devices for quite a few years. Up to this point, the only real use for them has been to set the brightness of your display when a Chromebook boots up. Helpful? Yes. What we really want from an […]
While I was doing some digging for another article, I happened across something on Lenovo’s little-known product reference site that caught my eye. Lenovo’s most recent EDU lineup include the 100e, 300e and very popular 500e. With the exception of the MediaTek-powered 300e, the other models are powered by the now-aging Apollo Lake chipsets that […]
Back in August of 2018, a few stories went around stating that Google was working on a facial recognition feature for Chromebooks and, to be perfectly honest, I couldn’t find any real evidence at the time pointing to anything beyond facial recognition for cameras. After all, modern mobile cameras use facial recognition all the time, […]
The upcoming Chromebook, known only as ‘Sarien’ at this point, is a device likely coming from Dell with top-tier specs, a detachable form-factor, and Wacom stylus support. Additionally, the fact that two USB-C docks are being tested alongside both ‘Sarien’ and ‘Arcada’ not only tipped us off to Dell being behind these devices, it also […]
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 not standard for us to review a device the second time, but with Lenovo’s Yoga C630, we are making an exception. Up front, we need to point out a few things, though. First, we’re not going to regurgitate everything we discussed in our original review. This device is exactly the same hardware for […]
I’ve been a big fan of Duo – Google’s video calling service that launched along with the ill-fated Allo chat service – ever since it launched. It does what it needs to do and just gets out of the way after that. While I’ve wished group calls were a thing for a while (supposedly they […]
