This week on The Chrome Cast, we spend our time talking through two main topics. The first is our thoughts on the new, high-end, modular Framework Laptop Chromebook Edition. Our review dropped this week and, as always, we have some thoughts. For a device built to be deconstructed and upgraded, this one is pretty sleek and fun to use.
The second half of the podcast ended up being taken up by an editorial idea that was published this week as well here at Chrome Unboxed. The premise is simple: why are $1000+ Android tablets accepted while $999 Chromebooks are considered by many to be ridiculous? It’s a strange duality for sure, and it leads to some intersecting discussion.
