IFA 2019 has been done for a bit now, but we’re still recapping the products launched there. Among them we find 4 new Chromebooks, that have prices starting at $250. There’s one for every budget and diagonals going from 11.6 inches to 15.6 inches.
All of these new Chromebooks come with fanless designs and they should come to Europe, Africa and the Middle East from October. They also have in common the connectivity: two USB 3.1 Gen 1 Type-C ports, usable for both charging and data, as well as two USB Type-A 3.1 ports, HD webcams and microSD card slots.
They also come with WiFi 802.11ac and Bluetooth 5.0 and they’re expected with a choice of Intel Celeron N4000 dual core or Intel Celeron N4100 quad core processors. The largest of the bunch, Chromebook 315 takes it up to an Intel Pentium Silver N5000.
