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.

You see, as we’ve posited in the past, the Samsung Chromebook Plus and Pro are very […]
If this sounds a bit like Déjà vu, it is. Well, kind of. If you are coming to this article without a whole lot of the history we’ve been compiling on these devices for just about a year, I’ll give you the skinny. (Conversely, you can go here and read from the beginning of the […]
You might have seen Gabriel’s reference to this earlier today, but we have the production model Samsung Chromebook Pro in the office now. I’ve spent the entire work day with it and I wanted to give everyone a few tidbits about what my real-world first imporessions are. Rough Press…Again Before that, I wanted to mention […]
