New Chromebooks to Boot Up Faster

Who wouldn’t be excited about a much faster Chromebook?

At the Intel Developer Forum (IDF) in Beijing, China, a Chromebook demo was caught on video with one of Intel’s new generation of processors, the Sandy Bridge.

As you will see, the 5-second boot up time is attributed to continued development work on an open-source Coreboot project, which Google developers have been adding code to.

Naturally, we are speculating that this work will lead to faster Chromebooks.
