I’ve been thinking about how to bring more useful information to About Chromebooks and today I implemented the first of several ideas. In the main menu, you’ll now see a Products option, which brings you to a new Chromebook product database that I’ve started to put together.
Let’s call this beta version 0.1 of the database because I may implement layout and functionality changes. And I only have two products in there so for. But if you hit the new product page, you’ll get an idea of where this is heading: One place to view various Chromebook and Chrome tablet specifications, information and a listing of reviews from around the web on these products.
I currently have a method to compare the specifications of two Chrome OS devices as well, but we’ll call that beta 0.01.
Here’s an example:
I think this one-stop destination is a good idea for readers to find and use information on various devices for making their purchase decisions. I’ll know for sure it’s a good idea if we see other tech sites implement something similar in the coming weeks and months. 😉
Ideally, I’d like to remove most of the right sidebar on the product pages so you can see more product information on the screen at one time. And along with a comparison tool, my hope is to implement a feature that will let you search for all devices, for example, that have a particular processor or at least 8GB of memory. I think that, along with the aggregated reviews will help people find the best Chrome OS device for them. Let me know if you agree.
