This platform has gained strength thanks to the announcement last year that Android applications would be supported directly on these computers, but in 2017 Chrome OS wants to gain much more ground. Convertible formats will join other types of products based on Chrome OS and the stylus will become relevant, but we also have on the horizon that mysterious Andromeda project that wants to merge Chrome OS with Android.
Chromebook launches cheer up
The Samsung Chromebook Pro / Plus launched in the past CES 2017 already surprised us by its screen with resolution of 2,400 x 1,600 pixels, while the Acer Chromebook 11 N7 stood out for their splash resistance or drops. ASUS and its Chromebook Flip C302 appropriated the convertible format, but in recent days, we have seen even more models ready to conquer users.
Today we learned about the launch of the Dell Chromebook 11, which also adopt that format convertible to be able to use in tablet or portable format when we need it.
However, the option that stood out was to support the Productivity Active Pen, the optional pencil that Dell offers to take notes or draw on the screens of these devices. This type of option, already present in others such as the aforementioned Samsung Chromebook Pro, marks a clear turning point in the bet by the touch interface and pointer in these products.
