Intel Architecture Fuels New Wave of Chrome Devices

Intel Corporation and other companies today introduced a new lineup of Chrome devices, including the first designs using Intel Celeron processors based on the Bay Trail-M system-on-chip (SoC). A new class of Chromebooks based on the 4th generation Intel Core i3 processor were also unveiled. The announcements were made at a press conference in San Francisco hosted by Navin Shenoy, vice president and general manager of Intel Mobile Client Platforms Group and Caesar Sengupta, vice president, product management, Chrome OS at Google as well as representatives from Acer, ASUS, Dell, HP, Lenovo, LG Electronics USA and Toshiba.

"Intel has grown to become the No. 1 microprocessor in Chrome systems," said Shenoy. "We've been working on five generations of Chrome and after Google, Intel is the largest contributor to the Chromium OS. Intel chips are the first and only to support 64-bit Chrome OS. This deep history and investment combined with our stellar Bay Trail and Haswell SoCs mean Intel can offer the best performing devices at every price point in the Chrome category. When people are shopping for Chrome devices, they should look for Intel Inside."

Lenovo Announces its First Chromebooks

The world's largest PC vendor, Lenovo, finally took the Chrome OS plunge, with two Chromebooks, the N20, and the N20P, starting at US $279. Both feature 11.6-inch displays. The N20P features a capacitive touchscreen suspended on 300° rotating hinges, that let you unfold it much like a FLEX 2, letting you use it as a desktop replacement, with external peripherals, or simply with its touchscreen. The 1366 x 768-pixel display reorients itself. Under the hood, both feature Intel Celeron processors based on the "Haswell" micro-architecture, 2 GB of RAM, and 16 GB of flash-based storage. The N20 is priced at US $279, and the N20P at $329. Both should be available in July.

BIOSTAR Announces J1900NH2 Mini-ITX Motherboard
