    Chromebook Pixel review

    The Chromebook Pixel sits in a category all of its own, which some might say is the ultimate expression of form over function. Every inch of this premium Chromebook has been scrutinised, honed and perfected. That’s exactly what Google intended when...

    Samsung XE 300M Chromebox review

    Samsung Chromebook Series 5 550 pictures and hands-on

    By 1 June 2012

    Samsung Series 5 Chromebook review

    By 18 July 2011

    The idea of the laptop is that it is your mobile office. Everything that the computer at the desk offers you on the go, be it your files, the web, email, or more, repackaged in a handy portable parcel. That idea works when you can take those files with...

    Chrome operated notebooks aren’t available for purchase yet but Pocket-lint was lucky enough to get our hands on the unbranded Chrome OS test notebook before the real deal hits store shelves in mid-2011. The Cr-48 is Google’s test notebook running...

    Google Chrome OS - First Look review

    By 21 November 2009

    Google has dropped the source code of Chrome OS into the wild, so we thought we'd take a look and see if it lives up to the lofty hype that's been placed upon it. Depending on who you believe, Chrome OS could either sink without trace or obliterate Microsoft,...
