We weren’t greeted with a new Pixelbook today but Google still brought some impressive and noteworthy products to the I/O keynote. As expected, the Pixel 3A and 3A XL were announced and the budget-friendly smartphone with a premium camera is already popping up in promotions across the web. Another anticipated device debuted center stage in […]
One of the primary focuses here at Chrome Unboxed is future hardware. After all, our early days were all about new devices! What is coming feels just as important as what is here now, so we will continue looking for the latest and greatest developments in the Chrome OS ecosystem.
Robby has been busy chasing down every little detail he can find on the new Comet Lake Chromebook codenamed ‘Hatch’. Even though Intel’s 9th Gen processors aren’t expected until mid-year, we’ve now identified one manufacturer that is working on a Comet Lake device and it should be exciting news for a lot of Chrome OS […]
In the history of Chromebook devices since the original Samsung Chromebook Plus launched, there have been a few Chromebooks that leveraged a screen similar to what we see on the Pixelbook. That screen – for those unaware – is bright, colorful, and 3:2 in its aspect ratio and has been used on the Samsung Chromebook […]
More and more details are arriving for the upcoming Chromebook known only as ‘Hatch’ at this point. We already knew it is being based on the Comet Lake 9th-gen Intel chipset and that it will have a fingerprint scanner, but today we’ve found full evidence that ‘Hatch’ will also employ a garaged stylus.
Still no sign of the elusive Qualcomm Chromebook ‘Cheza’ after months of anticipation and speculation but it looks as though MediaTek may come out swinging in the race to become the first next-generation ARM-powered device on the market. It has been nearly a year since MediaTek’s octa-core MT8183 processor made its way to the Chromium […]
After seeing the new Acer Chromebook 714 and 715 at Acer’s event this week, we can finally use the plural Chromebooks when talking about Chrome OS devices with fingerprint scanners. Up to last week, we’d only had the Pixel Slate as the lone Chromebook with biometric support. Now with the addition of the Acer 715 […]
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 […]
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!
As we expected, Acer brought along some new Chrome devices to the Next@Acer event here in Brooklyn, NY. We’ll be getting some hands-on shortly and will bring you video coverage of our initial impressions but in the meantime, here’s a closer look at Acer’s Enterprise-focused Chromebook 714 and 715. Acer Chromebook 714 & 715 Acer’s […]
In a not-totally-surprising move yesterday, Google hinted very strongly that another #madebyGoogle device is in the works and will be announced “down the road.” At the annual Cloud Next event, in a session titled Google Hardware For Business, a juicy hint was dropped that is making it quite clear that Google is not out of […]
AMD’s entrance into the Chrome OS space may not have carried with it the fanfare many of us were hoping for but the education-focused devices unveiled at CES 2019 were a smart play by manufacturers looking to give AMD a foothold in a market dominated almost entirely by Intel. The low-powered AMD APUs found in […]
In the life of many Chromebooks and other Google software, there is a process that many new things go through known as dogfooding. Dogfooding is simply the everyday use of software and/or hardware by the very developers making and working on them. In the case of Google, dogfooders are used to test out new products […]
