Two down, one to go. Apart from the Celeron offerings from CTL and ViewSonic, three major players in the Kaby Lake Chromebox market are all slated to launch their Chrome OS desktops sometime in the coming weeks. Although Acer has yet to “officially” release the CXI3, it has been up for preorder for a couple […]
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.
Well, it’s the day after and news of the world’s first detachable Chromebook has spread like wildfire. If by chance you missed it, take a few moments to check out Robby’s article on HP’s official announcement complete with a gallery of this beautiful device. Now that the smoke has cleared, we can discuss the mounting […]
The Chromebook known simply as ‘Atlas’ is making waves this week as it may be the first Chrome OS device to sport a true 4K resolution display. We were sitting around the office this morning kicking around ideas of what the application for such a pixel-dense display could be on a form-factor as small as […]
Back in February, we uncovered a commit pointing to what looked like the beginnings of development of the first 4K Chromebook. In that post, we talked through all the ins-and-outs of 4K, how it measures, how it relates to image clarity and the impact it has on system performance.
Q1 of 2018 is rapidly coming to an end and we have seen the release of numerous Apollo Lake Chromebooks geared toward the education market and there are even more coming down the pipeline. On top of that, Chromeboxes have made a comeback worthy of an ESPN highlight reel.
Mobile World Congress (MWC) is underway in Barcelona and less than 24 hours in, the Chromebook world has much to rejoice about. Geared mainly towards mobile devices, MWC isn’t normally a news ground for Chrome OS fodder but this year is a monumental exception.
In late August, we uncovered the first signs of Intel’s next Atom line of processors in the Chromium repository. It was nearly four months later before Intel made the Gemini Lake chipsets publicly available so I really didn’t expect to see an actual Chromebook with the Apollo Lake successor until later this year. I was […]
We’ve talked quite a bit about the upcoming device known as ‘Nautilus’ around here recently. We’re inclined to think this device could see a release date later in 2018, so it makes sense that we’ll keep seeing small hints about what ‘Nautilus’ will bring to the table before that time gets here. We know a […]
Just about a week ago, the first eyes-on of the Acer Chrome OS tablet leaked from the BETT show in London. The tweet has been pulled, but we’ve heard plenty of folks saying they saw this device in the flesh at the show as well. Our leaning is this mystery device is none other than […]
The annual BETT show is well underway in London and while we’ve seen some fairly expected Chromebook announcements, news just rolled across my Twitter feed that completely blindsided me and I am STOKED!
Apparently, January is the choice time to launch education-focused Chromebooks in 2018. Granted, between CES and the BETT (British Educational Training and Technology show), the time is pretty ripe for announcements. Additionally, these new Chromebook offerings are now all in line for upcoming budget decisions for school systems that don’t routinely stick to to a […]
Well, the days of computing announcements happening at CES seem to be all but over. Today, Acer is announcing 3 new devices that add to the slew of new Chromebooks and Chromeboxes announced in the past month: none of which were officially shared at CES earlier in January. I suppose it is the new normal […]
