Wow! Awesome deal for the Lenovo Thinkpad 13 Chromebook on Amazon! Granted, this is the model with a 1366x768 display. However, considering you still get a Skylake Intel Celeron 3855U dual core processor, 4GB of RAM, and two USB Type-C ports, I think this is a great deal for $180.

If you’re in the market for a Chromebook that has the power to deliver a great Chrome OS experience and won’t break the bank the Lenovo ThinkPad Chromebook 13 may be the device for you.

A few Chromebooks already have access to Android apps, but the current version of Android that is being used in the Linux container is Android 6.0 Marshmallow. While we already know the Chromium team have been working to upgrade the containers to run Android 7.1 Nougat, we now have visual proof that this update is being worked on. A Chrome Unboxed reader —who is running Chrome OS Canary 57 on his Lenovo Thinkpad Chromebook— has discovered that his device was running the latest version of Android Nougat (7.1.1).

While window resizing seems to work fairly well, the user states that the UI is still a bit buggy. Still, it's nice to see that the Chromium team were able to the update the version of Android that runs in the Linux container fairly quickly. Hopefully, we see a wider rollout of Android apps on Chromebooks once the bugs are worked out in this version of Android.

Samsung unveils Chromebook Plus and Chromebook Pro.

Samsung and Google have partnered together to build Samsung Chromebook Plus and Chromebook Pro--- two 360-degree convertible Chromebooks designed for Google Play. The Chromebook Plus and Chromebook Pro are virtually identical, except the Plus has a custom Samsung ARM hexa-core processor called the OP1 and the Pro has an Intel Core m3-6Y30 processor. Both Chromebooks sport aluminium builds, a 12.3-inch LED display at a resolution of 2400x1600 (3:2), 4GB of RAM, 32GB of internal storage, 720p webcam, an SD card slot, two USB Type-C ports, and a 38Wh battery (up to 8 hours of battery life).

One of the main features of the Chromebook Plus and Chromebook Pro is the bundled pressure-sensitive stylus, which will allow you to take notes and doodle in apps like Google Keep. According to The Verge¹, to improve the stylus experience, Google is using an API that can predict where you’ll move the pen next. Speaking to The Verge, Kan Liu senior director of product management for Chrome OS, says that this technology makes the stylus more responsive than Microsoft's Surface Pen. Currently, Google Keep is the only app that supports the API, but Google will be opening it up soon to developers.

The Samsung Chromebook Plus will be available for $449 at major retailers ---including Best Buy--- starting in February. As for the Chromebook Pro, Samsung says that it will be available in Spring, but the company did not give an exact price.

Samsung announced the Chromebook Pro and Chromebook Plus at CES today, apparently made in partnership directly with Google. If you’ll recall, back in October, details and images of the Chromebook Pro were leaked, but now with a couple of months behind us, Samsung has made them official. On paper, each Chromebook is exactly the same, …

There is much ado and love in America for this book guess it is a Trump thing. I go to a shop in UK and get told they do not recommend chrome note book . That is PC world and a private shop too so with these experts I think there is much ado about nothing.

Vizio's SmartCast TVs, speakers, soundbars, and surround-sound systems are now compatible with Google Home. This means, you'll be be able to cast content from apps like YouTube, Spotify, Google Play Music, Netflix, and more to your TV or speakers just by using your voice.

In addition, you'll be able to use simple voice commands to adjust the volume up or down, play, stop or skip music tracks on supported services. Finally, if you have the "Quick Start Power Mode” feature enabled on your VIZIO SmartCast TV, you'll be able to tell Google Home to play a movie even when the display is off. The display will then power on and begin loading the content.

Since 2011, Chrome users have been requesting support for the FLAC audio codec, but work did not get underway until last September. Now, in Chrome 56 (which is currently in the beta channel), the FLAC audio format is supported. Chrome OS, on the other hand, seems to have gained support for FLAC in Chrome OS 55, with FLAC files playing in the native audio player.

#Chrome #ChromeOS
Chrome 56 is currently in the beta channel and should hit stable in about a week. When released, it will bring support for the FLAC audio codec directly in the browser. This will provide a quick wa…

+Michael Webber You can pretty much do that with crouton right now.

+Leonard Blair Jr. Yeah, I agree with +Mark Dodsworth's point. Hopefully, Android developers take advantage of the new hardware and develop more advanced applications for mouse and keyboard use.

Also, the reason you won't see Windows applications because it would have to be sandboxed in a way that doesn't compromise Chrome OS' security.

We all know the the Samsung Chromebook Plus will cost $449, but I was watching this hands on of the device and a Samsung spokesperson states at 2:58 that the Pro model will cost $549. If true, that's a pretty aggressive price point. It's only $49 more than the Asus Flip C302 with an Intel m3 processor.

Those deciding between the Samsung Chromebook Pro and Asus Flip C302 (and looking for more performance) may just decide to go with the Pro model for a bit more money (unless they absolutely need a back-lit keyboard).

Asus announces the Asus Chromebook Flip C302.

After countless leaks, Asus has officially unveiled the Asus Chromebook Flip C302. The Asus Chromebook Flip C302 is a 360-degree convertible Chromebook that features a 12.5-inch IPS display at a resolution of 1920x1080, 6th generation Intel Pentium 4405Y/Core m3-6Y30/Core m7-6Y75 processors, 4GB or 8GB of RAM, 32GB/64GB/128GB of internal storage (finally more storage!), two USB Type-C ports, and a MicroSD card slot. However, you won't find any USB Type-A ports on this device, which means you'll have to rely on adapters for your connectivity needs. Asus claims the Chromebook Flip C302 will last up to 10 hours with its 39 Whr battery.

The Chromebook Flip 2 will cost $499 and will be available today.
