Chell is an upcoming HP Chromebook?

'TEST=build, boot on chell and execute dmidecode to check Manufacturer is "Hewlett-Packard" '

source: https://groups.google.com/a/chromium.org/forum/#!searchin/chromium-os-reviews/chell$20hp/chromium-os-reviews/LhauJkE0By0/-aCelQaMAgAJ

What's most interesting here is that if the other specs are still true (16GB RAM, backlit keyboard etc.), then could we be looking at the first proper high-end Chromebook not completley made by Google?

UPDATE: after some further digging and thanks to +Robb Weeks and +Brandon Lall I'm now fairly certain that 'glados' is a base-baseboard, on which Chell (Skylake-Y) and Kunimitsu (Skylake-U) is based, but then Lars is based on Kunimitsu. A two tiered flagship line perhaps?

Some of you may remember 'glados', a board I brought to attention back in Febuary of last year and +François Beaufort​​ confirmed as running Skylake. Turns out the name isn't all that's interesting about it!

https://groups.google.com/a/chromium.org/forum/#!searchin/chromium-os-reviews/backlight$20glados/chromium-os-reviews/vU-GwnjEq0s/XHB-RC_nWmYJ

From the initial commit one can see references to fans, 2 USB-A and two USB-C ports, but also a super interesting 'GPIO(TABLET_MODE, PORT ...'.

Oh, and it appears to be the third known board (Pixel G1, Pixel G2, Pixel C) to have a proper lightbar [Just sayin'], and also the necessary sensors for the tap-for-battery.

https://groups.google.com/a/chromium.org/forum/#!searchin/chromium-os-reviews/lightbar%7Csort:date/chromium-os-reviews/rCGS2_DdtnU/pBdB9bJzEAAJ

And a backlit keyboard!

https://groups.google.com/a/chromium.org/forum/#!searchin/chromium-os-reviews/backlight$20glados/chromium-os-reviews/2SRiXI2IpzA/qWKj2NY8AAAJ

It's probably too early to call this as anything more than an 'interesting' board, but things are looking good for another upcoming ChromeOS flagship...

Last year the SVP of Intel said that Skylake was making its way into "phablets". Then The Information reported that Google would "take greater control over its Nexus program [...] reduce the level of involvement of hardware partners."

Is it happening?

So I found this:

'...That is true only for boards that have a single boot policy i.e. all   
chromeos boards. However, if a board like smaug/ryu wants to set multiple boot policies i.e. boot[.]img as well as CrOS ...'

Noooo! edit: maybe not?

Looks like they've killed Ryu, and so with it any hopes or dreams of an Android/ChromeOS dual-booter.

+Jacob Gwiazdzinski yes, it seems like that…
Bit disappointed about it didn't give a chance for a dual-boot device…

The plot thickens!
If you direct your browsers over to: http://www.chromium.org/chromium-os/developer-information-for-chrome-os-devices/chromebook-pixel-2015

Which is the general information page for Samus (Pixel 2015) there is this interesting part that reads:

'LTE on some models'

but neither the two models out are supporting it. This is very strange...

Fascinating. Odd too that they used "the Chrome Notebook".

[New Apps] Came across another couple of Samus screenshots, but the more interesting thing here is the icons being shown off. It appears that Google are dogfooding the Android camera and calculator apps for Chrome OS. There's also a picture of the new app launcher icon (magnifying glass): http://www.omgchrome.com/chrome-os-app-launcher-icon-search-glass/

This may have all been covered before, but I thought I'd stick it here just in case.

Also interesting is the "Google Now" icon placeholder.  Hopefully they're moving the Google Now cards out of the notification center and into a place that's more "on demand".

Boom. Chell (Based on glados) is using an updated version of a RAM chip used in last year's 21"Apple iMac [K4E6E304EE-EGCF]. The kicker? It's a 16 GB module. I'm 100% sure this is no ordinary Chromebook now that we have lightbar, backlit keyboard, skylake and high-end RAM.

It looks like they're still at EVT at the moment, but judging by how things progressed last time, I think we'll have a new Google-made laptop before Christmas.

Google are adding support for TRIM in ChromeOS

Not sure if this has been publicised yet, but it looks like they've made the first steps to rolling it out early last month.

I'm not yet convinced that Ryu (Pixel C) is just an Android tablet.

So despite being all over the chromium OS reviews list, Ryu was announced to the world as an all-Google, all-Android tablet. This can make sense if either the Chromium team are also Google's designated consumer hardware team, or if Ryu was, at one stage, meant to at least dual-boot Chrome OS.

But if you go to the chromium issues page and search 'ryu' every single relevant entry appears under OS:Chrome, and some of these even post-date Ryu's announcement as running Android.

This bug seems particularly odd, given they're additionally, explicitly framing it as a Chromebook issue and then Ryu's name is nonchalantly rattled off: https://code.google.com/p/chromium/issues/detail?id=540817&q=ryu&sort=-modified&colspec=ID%20Pri%20M%20Stars%20ReleaseBlock%20Cr%20Status%20Owner%20Summary%20OS%20Modified

It's been mentioned by some of the media that the Pixel C could be Google's hardware for demoing this rumoured third OS, and what I'm seeing certainly leads credence to something out of the usual being the case.

+Jung Yi Hung I've thought that as well given that the OnHub routers use ChromiumOS as the underlying base.  It's almost as if Google is shifting from Android to ChromeOS to power things, which makes a lot of sense from an update and security standpoint.

+Kevin Burns "If so there would have to be desktop and mobile versions of apps / web apps that seamlessly interchange, syncing data in real time"... That's the best part, the entire Google suite of apps does this already. That's why an "Android in your hand, Chrome OS when docked" solution is so plausible. The syncing is easy, it's the swapping between OSes on the fly that would take some engineering finesse.

To any Googlers out there:

Firstly, does Samus still lock users out of their devices if they're in Developer mode and the battery runs flat?

Secondly, I can't see anything in any of the announcements or reviews I've read about LTE, but I saw that it was being tested. Was this dropped or is it in the LS version?

Cc: +Bill Richardson 

Otherwise the machine looks absolutely great and I'm looking forward to picking up an LS at some point in the future!

If they do a multi-mode machine I hope it's a Yoga 11e configuration as opposed to the half-baked N20P. The Yoga is an amazingly useful machine, albeit a bit blocky since it's a machine for the K-12 market. A sleek and light version of the Yoga with Pixel screen specs would be an extraordinary top-of-the-line device.
