Samsung reveals new LTE-equipped Chromebook Plus V2

Friday, October 12th, 2018

Earlier this year, Samsung revealed a refresh of its well-regarded 2017 Chromebook Plus. The new Chromebook Plus (V2) had an unadventurous name, but it had most of what made the original great, sadly sacrificing its incredible display for a faster Y-series Celeron (read: not one of the bad ones). Now Samsung has further revealed an LTE-equipped version of V2. The extra connectivity comes at a $100 premium, though. The new model is $599, available November 2nd.

Pixel Slate impressions: Android tablets are dead, long live Chromebooks

Tuesday, October 9th, 2018

At today's Made by Google event, we finally got a look at the much-leaked Pixel Slate. It's Google's first attempt at bringing Chrome OS to a "tablet first" form-factor. The Pixel Slate is a decidedly premium effort, with a high resolution "Molecular Display," 8th gen Intel CPUs, and stylish metal design — paired with an appropriate $600-$1600 price tag. It might be on the expensive side, but since Google is transitioning its own tablet efforts to Chrome OS, I think it's safe to say the end of Android tablets is nigh.

Adobe Acrobat now optimized for Chromebooks, documents can be signed with stylus

Tuesday, October 9th, 2018

Last year, Google worked with Adobe to bring a more complete version of Lightroom CC to Android and Chrome OS, mainly to showcase on the original Pixelbook. This year, Google partnered with Adobe again - this time to optimize the Acrobat PDF reader for Chromebooks.

With the "all-new" Acrobat, you can fill out forms quickly and sign/annotate them with the Pixelbook pen. The functionality will probably also work with other stylus-equipped Chromebooks, like the Samsung Chromebook Plus/Pro, but that wasn't explicitly confirmed.

Asus reveals another low-end Chromebook, the C423

Monday, October 8th, 2018

Are you waiting for a successor to the Chromebook Flip C302? Too bad, because Asus is giving us another low-end Chromebook instead. Following the entry-level C223NA that launched last month (our review is coming soon), Asus has quietly listed another inexpensive Chromebook on its site - the C423.

There appear to be two variations of the C423. One has an Intel Celeron N3350 processor with a 14-inch 1366x768 non-touch display, and the other has a Pentium N4200 with a 1080p touchscreen.

HP Chromebook x360 14 is a premium convertible costing $599

Monday, October 8th, 2018

As Google continues to make Chrome OS more touch-friendly, we're going to see an increasing number of convertible form factors in the space, and that's exactly what HP has announced today. The Chromebook x360 14 is a premium device with a 360-degree rotating hinge allowing for tablet, tent, and stand modes. It includes powerful internals such as 8th generation Intel Core processors (i3 or i5) and 8GB of RAM.

IFA 2018 saw the introduction of $600 Chromebooks from Dell and Lenovo with better than normal specs, and this new model from HP joins its detachable Chromebook x2 in the same price bracket.

CTL is virtually unknown in the consumer market, but the company has been manufacturing computers for schools and government facilities since 1989. It now mainly focuses on Chrome OS devices, like the Chromebox we previously reviewed.

The 'NL7TW-360' (excellent name, I know) is CTL's latest education-focused Chromebook. It has an 11.6-inch touch screen with Wacom stylus support, a durable 2-in-1 design, a water-resistant keyboard, and plenty of ports.
