Apple's Phil Schiller says that students with Chromebooks are "not going to succeed", in response to growing popularity of Chromebooks in classrooms. Here are the details.
Future Chromebooks may get a Windows 10 dual-boot feature like Apple Boot Camp in the near future. Here's what we know so far.
If you're a fan of cheap notebooks running Google's bare-bones ChromeOS and enveloped in Samsung's famed faux-leather, then you might be in luck, for a duo of Twitter photos via Evleaks suggests that a new Samsung Chromebook is on the way, sporting that polarizing finish. The teaser photos, which doesn’t show anything more than the rear of the device, and a Chrome logo atop that Galaxy Note 3-like material, doesn't take Inspector Clouseau to piece the clues together, and with the Korean company having delivered some moderately attractive Chromebooks already, the Galaxy maker looks to be stepping things up a gear.
The Chromebook was initially touted as an affordable, efficient product catering to the very basic computing needs, but today, in announcing the Chromebook Pixel, a premium notebook offering a 12.85-inch, 2560 x 1700 touchscreen-equipped panel, it's clear Google's ideas evolved way beyond that original manifesto. The notebook is a direct competitor to Apple's MacBook Pro with Retina display, and as well as the sharp display covered in solid Gorilla Glass, there is an LTE model (as well as Wi-Fi only), and it will begin shipping from next week.
Google has hooked up with several reputable vendors in order to push its Chromebook brand of notebook, and although things have gotten off to a fairly good start, it has to be noted that the search company's laptops have yet to faze those on the hunt for a truly high-end notebook. A leaked video, which may or may not have originated from the Mountain View-based company, appears to indicate a new direction for the Chromebook. Dubbed the 'Chromebook Pixel', it'll supposedly take a swipe at the heart of the high-end market - currently dominated by Apple - in boasting a 2560 x 1700 resolution display.
The Samsung-made Google Chromebook looks set to sell strongly as it launches with a slick form factor and agreeable price tag, and although the web-orientated notebook was only initially thought to be arriving as Wi-Fi-only - at least for the time being, the 3G iteration is also upon us.
Google has opened up two Chrome Zones in London recently, Redmond Pie has learned. Google has opened these Chrome Zones to explain the advantages of cloud computing and cloud-oriented Chromebooks to the general public.
