As Chromebooks (and, by extension Chromebases and Chromeboxes) continue to become more and more capable devices, more users are choosing to make them their only desktop computers. With that change, we are seeing more questions than ever surrounding desktop setups, what we use on the daily, and how we’d set up a desk with a […]
This is where it all began for Chrome Unboxed. Years ago, we existed simply as a Chrome OS device review channel on YouTube. After expanding our reach, we still remain dedicated to offering timely and thorough reviews of the latest Chrome OS devices. Here you'll find a review of every piece of Chrome OS hardware we've been able to get our hands on.
We’ve done our fair share of versus videos here at Chrome Unboxed, and I can easily say that few have been requested quite as much as this one. With a similar price tag, similar specs, and similar build quality, the ASUS Flip C434 and HP x360 14 share a whole lot in common for $599 […]
When you review devices, being picky is part of the job. I tend to look for the best parts of any Chromebook, but that way of looking at things isn’t always the most helpful for prospective buyers. While I don’t see the need to incessantly bash devices just for kicks and giggles, I do see […]
In the realm of detachable Chromebooks, there are few at this point. Two, specifically, and we’ve been asked time and again to pit them against one another to determine which is the best purchase. Between the Pixel Slate and the HP x2, there are lots of similarities and just as many differences. While it isn’t […]
If you’ve ever seen a trailer for a movie, got super-excited about that movie, went to go see the movie, and left the theater a bit let down, you know exactly how I feel about the Acer Chromebook 514. When this Chromebook was announced back in August of 2018, we had our expectations set quite […]
We don’t get the opportunity to do versus videos as often as I’d like, but we’re ready to try and change that in the coming months. The truth is, with review units it is pretty difficult to catch two interesting devices in the office at the same time. Right now we have quite a few […]
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 […]
2018 finished up with a bang, offering us more quality choices in the Chromebook space than we’ve ever seen before. While I believe we’re in for some great devices in 2019 as well, many users are ready to buy a Chromebook right now and are needing to find a way to decide between all the […]
Chromebooks, by their very nature, are mobile machines built for individuals on the go. With their quick boot times, nimble nature, and always-connected personas, Chromebooks are found often in the hands of individuals who value those traits. People who value the light and quick nature of Chromebooks tend to find themselves on the go a […]
Since their inception, Chromebooks have long been thought of as cheap computers, cheap laptops, “just a browser”, or just a cheap way to get online. Sure, there are still a ton of affordable Chromebook on the market and, because of the education sector, there likely always will be. However, there is a growing trend that […]
There are plenty of options out there for those looking to get their hands on a rugged educational Chrome device. Nearly every Chromebook OEM has an Apollo Lake-based product available in some shape, form or fashion but not all EDU devices are created equal. Thankfully, there are a few companies that have set out to […]
Google did an interesting thing this year when they launched the Pixel Slate: they included a 3rd-party accessory in the hands-on portion of the event. While Google-made accessories aren’t too out of place at this yearly media show, devices from companies other than Google are quite rare.
