Google Chromebook to get Core i series processors

Posted on Wednesday, July 20 2011 @ 23:59:46 CEST by


DigiTimes heard Google has decided to upgrade its Chromebook design to Intel's Core i series rather than the Atom N570:
The sources pointed out that despite the 12-inch Chromebook is mainly being pushed for its cloud computing capability, with most work being done by the back-end servers, since their hardware specifications are the same as a netbook, while being US$50-100 more expensive than a Windows 7-based netbook, and having an unattractive industrial design, the overall price/performance ratio is disappointing.

Therefore, Google has recently started notifying its partners that Chrome OS already has an obvious upgrade path for its hardware specifications and related security, while the company is also providing assistance with marketing and is aiming to push the product's price range to above US$500 and increase its attractiveness in the market.
