Another device to add to the Mar 31 Rockchip device avalanche, this time from the awesome folks at CTL. 

Their new 'CTL Education Chromebook J2' and 'J4' feature the same RK3288-C processor as the Chromebit, Flip and C201 and are targeted at classrooms. 

The 4GB model has the distinction of being the cheapest 4GB Chromebook offered to education thus far.

It's an arm cpu, which I am avoiding on chromebooks, b/c many applications I use on intel hardware wouldn't work on an arm Ubuntu crouton chrome-book. deal-breaker for me...:/

I don't often check* the reviews of the omg apps on the Play Store, but fiddling about with Google's ARC welder app earlier today I had to grab an APK and saw a few I hadn't see before. 

And I'm glad I did.

Now, as an app with 'Chrome' in its name we get the odd 1 star review from people not entirely understanding what it is they've downloaded, and there are people who install it and aren't that impressed (which is fine) but it seems the bulk of written comments on the Play Store for the OMG! Chrome! app are super nice. Really super nice! :D

The internet sometimes feels, to me at least, an arid empty expanse filled coarse with whining and griping for the sake of it. 

These comments show the other side. The fertile, sunny and awesome side.

It's really nice to know that there are folks in the Chrome community who do like +OMG! Chrome! and what it does (just as I'm okay with the reverse; I know there are some prominent folks who don't like the site or me personally but aren't asshats about it). 

\o/  

*You can blame the mire of bile that is omgubuntu's comment section for this!

+Joey-Elijah Sneddon​ You bring good design and user friendliness to a tech press which is patchy in these regards, at best.

Personally I don't use the omg apps anymore mainly because I like the web just fine, and the sites work so well on mobile anyway.

A couple of weeks back I got wind of a new ARM-based Chromebook coming from ASUS. That device, the C201, was made official today ($169) alongside this, a more interesting convertible device in a 10.1-inch formfactor. 

This, folks, is the Chromebook Flip. 
ASUS is to launch a new convertible Chromebook priced at $249 later this year, the company has announced at a joint press event hosted with Google.

Open the floodgates! ;) 
Any Android developers are now able to bring their their Android apps to Chrome OS, as Google expands the 'ARC' plugin project with documentation and tools.

Chromebit, anyone? 
Take the guts of a Chromebox and squeeze it in to a dongle not that much bigger than the Chromecast and you get the Chromebit.
