Today in Brooklyn, Acer unveiled the newest Chromebooks in their growing lineup: the Chromebook 714 and 715. We were at the event and got to spend a bit of time with both devices after the crowds thinned out a bit. From those few minutes we were able to really spend with both Chromebooks, I have […]
Similar to our reviews section, unboxing Chromebooks and other Chrome OS devices are central to our DNA. It's where our name came from, after all. In this section, you'll find our initial reactions to devices as we pull them out of the box. Sometimes, that's the most telling part of a device review. Be sure to check out the reviews that go with each unboxing.
We’re here at the Next@Acer global press event and we’re taking a quick peak at the two new Chromebooks on offer from Acer. We’ll spend some more time with them soon and get more in-depth hands-on videos at that point, but we wanted to share our initial thoughts from the keynote with you now. Enjoy!
Portable USB-C monitors are fantastic pieces of tech. Having a second screen on the go with no need for power or anything more than a USB-C cable is not only productivity-boosting: it is freeing. Not long ago a multi-monitor setup was relegated to a desk setup and you simply lost that extra screen real estate […]
After seeing the ASUS Chromebook Flip C434 in Vegas at CES 2019, I couldn’t wait to get it in the office for review. When news broke last month that it was finally becoming available for sale, I jumped on the opportunity to purchase one. Sure, we’ll likely get a review unit in from ASUS at […]
The time has finally come: The ASUS Chromebook Flip C434 is in the house and we’re cracking it open to take a first look at the production-level hardware. For those of you who are around the site or YouTube Channel on a regular basis, you’ve undoubtedly heard us talk about this device and likely saw […]
Flagship, high-end Chromebooks come through our office with high regularity. We love them and we love getting to try all the latest, greatest hardware on offer from various, well-known manufacturers.
If you’ve been around the website or the YouTube channel of late, you’ve likely noticed a trend towards favorable reviews on newer Chromebooks. I don’t think that is a fad or a coincidence: I think Chromebooks in general are just getting better hardware. Let’s face it, Chrome OS is the same on every single Chromebook […]
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 […]
November and December have been crazy for us here at Chrome Unboxed. Between Google’s new hardware and most major Chromebook vendors launching new devices, it has been a non-stop stream for the past few weeks. Don’t get me wrong, that’s a good thing for everyone!
The fourth quarter of 2018 has been prolific at delivering more higher-end Chromebooks than any other time in the history of the platform. Where once upon a time we only saw one or two quality devices in a given year, we’re not almost overwhelmed with options, configurations, price points, and manufacturers.
The ever-important purchasing season is rapidly approaching. Black Friday and the crazy shopping season that follows it is nearly upon us, so we’re trying as hard as we can to get impressions and videos posted so you, dear reader, can make a decision on a Chromebook if you are eyeballing one for a gift.
All the way back in May of this year, we traveled up to New York to attend Acer’s hardware event and got to spend a little time with the Acer Chromebook Spin 13. The Spin 15 was also there along with the Acer Chromebook 13 (non-spin version).
