If I hadn’t just built a Windows gaming PC last summer, I’d consider this new Asus Fanless Chromebox that was quietly announced at CES 2021. A locked VESA mount solution and 10th-gen Intel chips are in every configuration.
Asus held its CES 2021 news back until the final day of the show, announcing a trio of new Chromebooks. Two are large 15.6-inch clamshells, while one is a 14-inch convertible. You can choose between Intel 11th gen chips among two while an AMD Ryzen powers another.
A small update to the Dell Chromebook 3100 for education can make a big difference. At CES 2021, Dell announced integrated LTE as an option to this classroom staple.
CES 2021 might not offer the same level of new products or Chromebook innovations we’ve come to expect. Thanks, 2020.
Acer is the latest to use AMD Ryzen processors in its new Chromebooks. The Acer Chromebook Spin 514 lineup with 14-inch 1080p touchscreen starts at $479.99 and goes on sale next month in North America.
Announced in advance of CES 2021, the Samsung Galaxy Chromebook 2 starts at $450 less than the original model. When you look at the reduced specs and features, you’ll see how Samsung achieved this.
After the first Samsung Galaxy Chromebook 2 renders leaked online, a spec sheet with a few hardware details followed. It appears Samsung is cutting the price down to $699 by moving to a QLED panel, removing the fingerprint sensor and going with a 10th-gen Intel Core i3 chipset.
Don’t expect many visual changes on the Samsung Galaxy Chromebook2. In fact you might mistake it for the current model based on this leaked image. Look closer though and you can see some important design differences.
