  • Chromebooks are basically the new netbooks, in spite of the fact they’re bigger than the models that Acer and ASUS made popular. They usually come with very low prices, modest hardware specs and rely on Google’s Chrome OS and productivity suite from Docs. However, the perception that all Chromebooks are cheap is wrong and there are also higher end units. A new Chromebook Pixel could be coming soon.


    Dell’s Chromebook 13 series includes models that offer up to 8 GB of RAM and up to an Intel Core i5 processor, with prices ranging from $379 to $799. The latest Google Chromebook Pixel is a premium device, that sells for $999 or more. However, an even more potent model is incoming. The Chromium OS code review group includes a discussion section, where there were hints about a next gen Chromebook Pixel, with a multi colored light bar.

    It’s also rumored to include 16 GB of RAM, an Intel Skylake processor and a backlit keyboard. Of course, the device the forum mentioned could be something else entirely. All we know is that it’s codenamed “chell”. It could end up as a MacBook rival that runs both Android and Chrome OS.

    Expect to learn more at the Google I/O event in May.

      Most of us can’t yet conceive of letting cloud servers perform the tasks of running all software applications and storing all data. Thanks to Microsoft and Apple, we’ve acquired this ingrained and costly compulsion to download and install; then download, update and repair, over and over, until the inevitable catastrophe of irrecoverable hard drive failure. Comparatively inexpensive, reliable, responsive Chromebooks are gradually showing us the utter insanity of that behavior. Turning on a Chromebook happens as fast as turning on a TV. It needs no recovery, repair, tuning and antivirus tools. And if you lose or destroy a Chromebook, just log onto another and pick up where you left off without losing anything. Chromebooks just work.

      As long as you have a steady enough internet connection. The unwashed masses with no ubiquitous wireless connectivity are not getting anything great from a Chromebook.
