TL;DR
  • Google is announcing a slew of new AI features for Chromebook Plus and new hardware and lineup refreshes for Chromebooks.
  • New hardware includes convertibles like the ASUS Chromebook CM30 and clamshell laptops like the HP Chromebook 14 and HP Chromebook Plus 14.
  • The refreshed models include the Acer Chromebook Spin 714, HP Chromebook Plus x360, ASUS Chromebook Plus CX34, and Acer Chromebook Plus 516 GE.

Chromebooks make a lot of sense for people who spend most of their time inside a web browser. Most people think that Chromebooks are underpowered machines, but that is a very generic statement that completely ignores Google’s Chromebook Plus initiative. Google is bringing several new AI features to Chromebook Plus, and there’s new hardware under both Chromebook and Chromebook Plus branding to serve the needs of people at large.
