Chromebooks generally sell well, but Samsung’s Chromebook 2 may not have done as well as the company had hoped it would. Perhaps the aging Exynos 5 Octa processor or questionable build quality left consumers unimpressed. Whatever the reason, the Korea-based electronics maker is making another go of it with a new and improved Chromebook 2 model that ditches ARM for Intel silicon. (more…)
Yesterday, during the madness that was Nexus 6, Nexus 9, and Lollipop day, we put together a quick comparison of the new Google phone to its predecessors.
