Today in San Francisco, Google and Intel announced a brand new fleet of Chromebooks in various shapes and sizes. While some of these devices will be powered by Intel’s familiar Haswell processors, the big news today is that the chip maker is bringing its newer Bay Trail platform to Mountain View’s take on the notebook. Partners like ASUS, Lenovo, LG, HP and Acer will all be producing Bay Trail-powered Chromebooks.
Bay Trail processors offer up to 11 hours of battery life, along with a slimmer form factor compared to its predecessors. Intel says that consumers can expect to get their hands this new generation of Chromebooks this summer with prices starting at around $250.
