Google announces Haswell powered Chromebooks

Intel and Google have announced new Chromebooks powered by the much talked about Haswell processors. Two major PC vendors ASUS and Toshiba have joined the Chrome OS club which include Samsung, Acer and HP. While HP and Acer are offering new Chromebooks, ASUS is brining new Chromebox to the market.

One of the features of these new Chrome OS devics are Intel’s much talked about Haswell chips. These chips are known for longer battery lives.

Two most popular devices running these chips and boasting of better battery lives are Samsung Ativ Book 9 Plus and Apple MacBook Air.

  1. But now when MediaTek,Rockchip,Allwinner are also launching big.LITTLE SoC processors will these SoC of course be cheaper than Intel SoC Haswell.
