Chrome OS code suggests Snapdragon 8cx Chromebooks appear to be in the works. Aside from more performance, this chip supports Adaptive Sync.
I’m thrilled to hear reports of Google chips in Chromebooks. But there are some very important things to keep in mind before the reported chips arrive in 2023.
The upcoming MediaTek Kompanio 1300T for Chrome OS tablets is good news. But I keep thinking of that song by The Who and hope we won’t be fooled again.
One of the best Chrome OS tablets is available again with a $40 discount. You can get the 128 GB Lenovo Duet Chromebook with cover stand and removable keyboard for just $259.
HP has five new rugged Chromebooks for the classroom including two new convertibles and two new clamshells with a choice of Intel or MediaTek inside. Teachers can opt for a larger model to show off at the front of the class.

The HP Chromebook 11a was quietly announced earlier this month. With a starting price of $259 and the same ARM processor in the proven Lenovo Duet Chromebook, it’s an insta-buy, right? Not so fast.
The first Chromebook running on Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 7c compute platform is the Acer Chromebook Spin 513, starting at $399. It will offer optional integrated LTE in a thin and light package.
Walmart is discounting the surprisingly capable Lenovo Duet Chromebook tablet by more than 10 percent. For $249, this is a great value as a Chrome OS device with detachable keyboard and kickstand.
