Google sees a future of faster ChromebooksGoogle’s Chromebook might not be the best selling piece of computing equipment to date, but that does not mean the Internet search giant has already given up on it. No sir, there is word going around that Google intends to up the ante further by ditching Intel Atom processors in future Chromebooks, and in order to fill up this processing void, they are looking at Intel’s Sandy Bridge and Ivy Bridge processors. Hopefully with the new processors in tow, the Chromebook will no longer be deemed as slow to those who tried it. It is also hoped that regardless of whether Sandy Bridge and Ivy Bridge are used, they will also be optimized to be as power efficient as possible, considering how battery life issues on Chromebooks are something that needs to be looked into. There are also other reports (potential red herrings) that point towards RISC-based ARM chips used underneath the hood. Have you given the Chromebook a go so far, and how was your experience with it?
