Today, after a few months of waiting, we are finally welcoming the Samsung Galaxy Chromebook into the office. Unlike many devices we review, this isn’t a review unit we’ll eventually send back to Samsung. Instead, this is my own personal purchase that I plan on keeping around for a long time. Sure, there are countless […]
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.
It’s an exciting day here in the Chrome Unboxed office as our review unit of the ASUS Chromebook Flip C436 has been delivered and we’re hopping in the box to see what all we remember about the device from our time with it at CES 2020 back in January. While we’re not really allowed to […]
Back in the fall of 2019, HP unveiled a few new Chromebooks in the x360 line and, if I’m honest, the ones that quickly became available were a bit of a bore. They took design queues directly from the existing (and fantastic) x360 14, but put in worse screens, worse build quality, and worse internals. […]
Acer just announced the Chromebook 712 and in many ways, this device is unique in not only the specs it brings to the table, but in the outer, ruggedized features as well. Education-focused Chromebooks tend to be thought of as corner-cutting, uninspired tanks; they get the job done for as little overhead as possible and […]
We shared recently about the hidden availability of the ASUS Chromebook Flip C433 at local Best Buy stores nation-wide in the US, and now we’re taking a few moments to actually unbox and react to this device in the flesh. The Flip C433 has been a bit of a question mark since it was first […]
Google’s event this week has basically taken over our YouTube Channel and website with all the fun, new hardware on offer. As great as those shows and hands-on events are, there are things we simply cannot properly observe in the loud, strangely-lit environments. There’s also a bit of anxious energy that exists in those settings […]
Of all the things announced at Google’s hardware event today, the revamped Pixel Buds were my favorite. That’s not just based on the fact that I’m very impressed by them; it is also because they were the only thing that didn’t fully leak out ahead of time. Knowing they were coming was enough to whet […]
Well, the day has come and ‘Atlas’ as we’ve known it all this time is now the Pixelbook Go. With the official announcement a surprise to no one today at the annual Google hardware event, we now have not only a face to put with the Pixelbook Go name: we have some thoughts and impressions.
Just today, FEDEX stopped by to drop off the newly-released Dell Latitude Chromebook Enterprise 5300 on our doorstep. If you recall, this Chromebook is the first in a new line of devices dubbed Chromebook Enterprise and these new Chromebooks come with all sorts of enterprise-ready features like Dell’s own VMWare capabilities built right in alongside […]
Out of nowhere, ASUS has unveiled the Chromebook C425 and it packs in quite a few features that make for a great all-around Chromebook. At first glance, you’d be forgiven for mistaking it for its more well-outfitted brother in the Flip C434. Don’t be confused, however, as the C425 is different in a handful of […]
We’re just now getting into the time of year where the normal course of our work will revolve around getting a new device in the office, taking the wraps off of it, and putting it through our standard review process. We expect to be more inundated with reviews this year than we ever have been […]
There are a handful of things we’re asked about on a regular basis. What is the best Chromebook for my budget? What accessories should I get for my Chromebook? What’s the best Chromebook I can get for my child? All of these are great questions, and there are quite a few more where that came […]
