Wow! Just yesterday we reported Acer dropping a couple new education devices at the annual BETT show in London. Those devices, powered by the latest Intel Celeron chips (Gemini Lake), bring 3:2 screens, speedy performance, better screens, and military-spec ruggedness for the classroom.
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.
While HP and ASUS have already debuted their newest EDU Chromebooks ahead of the annual BETT show in London, we knew Acer would have a new line of Chromebooks to bring along to the the yearly education-focused tech expo, too. You can watch our hands-on video from CES below and see how impressive the newest […]
One of the devices we haven’t yet done a full review on is the ASUS C423. There are a few reasons for that, but the biggest one is the availability of a better model in the wild with a better display that we’d rather give a test drive over the one we currently have in […]
It’s been nearly a week since Acer dropped the news that they, along with HP, would be debuting one of the industry’s first AMD-powered Chromebooks.
We covered ASUS’ announcement of their CES 2019 offerings both before the event and once we landed, so if you want to read more about the 4 education devices, you can head right here. If you’d like to read all the specs and stats of the surprise device – the ASUS Chromebook Flip C434 – […]
To say we are excited to be breaking this news to the world would be a massive understatement. Proper made-for-Chrome-OS accessories are few and far between, but keyboards and touchpads are not just hard to find, they are impossible to find. The reason? They simply don’t exist. Sure, we’ve had bundled keyboards and mice that […]
We just published the initial details on both the first AMD offering from HP and the new, somewhat-unexpected x360 14 G1 just yesterday, but last night we were able to swing by HP’s booth and give both of these new Chromebooks a test drive.
A little over two months ago, XDA discovered a new Chrome device in the works that some suspected could be another Kaby Lake-powered Chromebox or perhaps even a new Chromebit if you can stretch your imagination that far. The platform, codenamed ‘Kalista’, has since been given the new device name ‘Karma’ and now we know […]
In the past couple months, we’ve been a bit overwhelmed with new Chromebook models left and right. From HP, Dell, Google, Lenovo, and Acer, the new mid-to-high-end Chromebooks have been great and we’ve really enjoyed working through reviews for each. As excited as we’ve been by all these devices, there is a new frontier we’ve […]
Well, the time has come to address the elephant in the room. October has long passed and with it Google’s annual hardware event. As expected, the Pixel Slate, a.k.a. ‘Nocturne’ made its debut. Love it or hate it, the “tablet first” Chromebook #MadeByGoogle is the belle of the ball at the moment and clearly the […]
For more than a year, I have longed for a suitable successor to my beloved Acer Chromebook 14. It’s one of those unique devices that may not lead the way as a premier Chrome device but the overall package is compelling and its design is timeless. The all-aluminum FHD Chromebook 14 was so popular that […]
Earlier this year, MediaTek brought their Octa-Core MT8183 to the Chrome OS party but since then, we’ve seen no sign of a new device powered by the ARM-based processor. However, development of the baseboard ‘Kukui’ continues to move forward and today we get our first glimpse at what could be the first Chromebook built on […]
