$149 Chromebooks Are Coming
« on: November 13, 2014, 08:14:32 PM »
With the drop in price on Windows machines, Google has had to help with a little problem. Chromebooks became more expensive than a full on Windows machine. Granted, the performance on these Windows laptops for $199 is nothing great, but neither is a Chromebook when it comes to multi-tasking. The solution? Lower the price of Chromebooks - and they will. According to sources, new machines from Lenovo and ASUS show that $149 Chromebooks are expected soon.

   In October 2014, Lenovo announced a 10.1-inch Android notebook using Rockchip's RK3188 solution and Digitimes Research estimates that Lenovo's RK3288-based 11.6-inch Chromebook will become available in the market at the end of 2014 at the earliest or in the first half of 2015 at the latest. Asustek's 11.6-inch Chromebook is expected to be released in 2015.Source: DigiTimes
