Get ready for some hot, new, cheap laptop action in the form of three new Chromebooks coming at you over the next few months! Here’s what you need to know about the impending arrivals.
Intel and Google along with hardware partners announced three new Chromebooks and one new Chromebox overnight at the Intel Developer Forum in San Francisco.
The new Chromebooks hail from HP, Toshiba and Acer, while the Chrombox comes direct from Asus. All the new Chromebooks and the Chromebox come with new Intel Haswell chips as their beating hearts.
The first is the HP Chromebook 14, with a 14-inch screen, measuring 2cm in thickness and weighing 1.8 kilos. It’s also promising a 9.5 hour battery life and a sub-7 second boot time. The new HP offering also comes in a few different colours to liven up the Chromebook palette.
The new Acer Chromebook packs in an 11.6-inch display, measuring 1.9cm in thickness and weighing 1.2 kilos. It’s promising 8.5 hours of use and a sub-8 second boot time.
The Toshiba Chromebook and Asus Chromebox are as yet undetailed, but we’ll update you when we hear back from Google later on.
