Chromebooks May Get Power Boost from Intel

A switch from the current Intel ATOM N570 processor to the powerful Core i will definitely provide a power surge to the Chromebook, but how much more will it cost? Read more

Assuming Digitimes got the story correct, why does Google want to push the price of a Chromebook up? Seems like an odd thing to do when they are trying to enter a competitive consumer market with a new/unfamiliar OS.

If they can keep the price point and the battery life then that is a huge win! And really, who has more bargaining power than Google?

I can't see the price going up for a I3 in a Chromebook. Right now Tiger Direct is selling a HP 15.5" with a I3 for $449.

That is good to hear though I did not anticipate these going for more than $500..I had rather purchase a laptop with the same kind of processor.

If you are considering Chromebooks but don't want to leave your Windows apps behind, you should look at Ericom AccessNow, a pure HTML5 RDP client that enables Chromebook users to connect to any RDP host, including Terminal Server (RDS Session Host), physical desktops or VDI virtual desktops – and run their applications and desktops in a browser.

Ericom‘s AccessNow does not require Java, Flash, Silverlight, ActiveX, or any other underlying technology to be installed on end-user devices – an HTML5 browser is all that is required.

For more info, and to download a demo, visit:
