Caesar Sengupta, Product Management Director, Chromebooks, blogged: “Over the coming months, you’ll see Chromebooks from multiple device manufacturers. These include newly designed Chromebooks from Acer and HP, as well as new entrants ASUS and Toshiba.”
At the Intel Developer Forum in San Francisco on Sept. 11, it was divulged that a “light and portable” Acer Chromebook is under construction, in addition to “a new large display” HP Chromebook 14, which comes in various colors. ASUS will be releasing a new Chromebox it was noted, and newcomer Toshiba will also be producing a Chromebook model.
Intel has reported that the new Haswell processors will improve Chromebook battery performance by more than two times to those running on previous Atom-based processors.
