New and Upcoming Devices!

Hello All,

Let's talk about some new and upcoming Chrome OS devices! The future is bright for Chrome OS hardware.

Asus Chromebook Flip C436: This is the new flagship 2-in-1 Chromebook Model from Asus. Starting at $799, this Chromebook offers all the necessities and then some for a Real Estate Professional (or well anyone for that matter). It has a 10th Gen Core i3 processor, 8 GB of RAM, and 128 GB hard drive to start (more expensive price points have different specs, this is the $799 model). It has USB ports, a Micro SD card reader (which is huge for those of us who do BPOs and other photo related activities), and a 14" Full HD display, which is more than enough to get work done. Price point might be a little high for many real estate professionals and the tech specs are definitely overkill for the vast majority of real estate professionals in terms of Chrome OS (these would be mandatory on certain operating systems), but on paper this delivers all the goods.

Samsung Galaxy Chromebook: This thousand dollar beast is complete overkill. $999 gets you a Chromebook with an AMOLED screen, a 10th Gen Core i5 processor, 8 GB of RAM, 256 GB hard drive, a built-in stylus pen, and all of the mandatory slots you need including a combo SD/UFS card reader. I mean this is a beast on paper, but no real estate professional, or average human being for that matter, needs this computer. This is probably the best Chromebook ever made, but it's geared towards tech enthusiasts, not the average professional who just needs to get work done, check emails, and promote themselves on social media... or binge watch everything with since we're all in quarantine. On the quarantine note, stay healthy and well everybody!

Lenovo Chromebook Duet: This detachable is due out in a month or two starting out at a very favorable $279 price point. While it lacks the appropriate slots (there is no SD card reader in any form here), the sheer portability of this device is appealing especially since it is compatible with the full Microsoft Office Suite. Specs for this bad boy are 10.1" Screen, 4 GB or RAM, 64 GB or 128 GB hard drive depending on the model, and the keyboard is INCLUDED (unlike the Pixel Slate when it launched). For real estate professionals looking to be productive on the go and can manage to forego the SD Card reader, this could be a really intriguing device. Like I said before, we have a little bit before this one comes out (month or two), but at this price point, this could be a big winner.

Lenovo Chromebook Flex 5: This is a 2-in-1 from Lenovo due out in the next month or two as well. Starts at $359 according to what I've read (not sure about the exact configurations of that model). What I do know is that the top model will have a 10th Gen Core i5, 8 GB of RAM, and a 128 GB hard drive. This device comes with a 13.3" Full HD screen and also comes with all the required slots including an SD card reader (just do not know if it's a full SD card reader or a micro SD card reader). This may be the big seller for real estate professionals of the ones I have mentioned here because of the extremely favorable price point, having all the necessary ports/slots, and for those who are into specs the higher end models deliver on that front.

Acer Chromebook 712: While this one may have been designed more for the education crowd, this one can deliver greatly for Real Estate Professionals. 12 inch HD screen, 10th Gen Intel Core i3 processor, and all the necessary slots including an SD Card Reader. It's also made of military grade materials that are meant to protect it in the case of drops and spills. I'm wondering about basic consumer availability on this one, but if/when that does happen, this device should hopefully have a favorable price point and those of us real estate professionals with young children can rest easy knowing that this device is harder to break than most. There was supposed to be a release date last month for this device, but I don't know if that actually happened or if it's not just not available on the consumer market yet.

There are more devices coming. As soon as I get more concrete information on new and upcoming Chrome OS devices, I will be happy to share that information with you.

Thanks for reading! Stay safe and healthy out there... and more importantly, stay home if you can!

Long Time No Update.. so let's talk AMD and Zillow

 Hey All! I know it's been quite a long time since I posted so I just wanted to check in and apologize for not posting in what seems like forever. There is not a lot of news on the Chrome OS front except for one major thing... AMD Ryzen Chromebooks are on the way! I personally prefer AMD processors to Intel processors and AMD's Ryzen processors are the cream of the crop. My Windows laptop (that I hardly use anymore because of how much I prefer using Chrome OS) has an AMD Ryzen 5 processor in it for example. Lenovo and HP have already announced Chromebooks with AMD Ryzen processors on the way and AMD has said that Acer and Asus will also be announcing such devices in the near future. According to benchmarks, the AMD Ryzen processors outperform Intel Core processors, so this is very exciting for us real estate professionals who want better performance in the devices we use to conduct our business. I feel very excited with these developments regarding AMD... Unfortunately I can

A new gem from HP

Hello All, HP has been on a roll lately, now coming out with a new flagship consumer Chromebook, the Chromebook x360 14c. There will be multiple variants of this Chromebook and it will be available both directly from HP and from Best Buy. At minimum, you get a Pentium 6405u processor with 4 GB of RAM and at the high end you get an Intel 10th Gen i5 with 8 GB of RAM. I am not too sure about hard drive specifications but the good news is that it does come with all the necessary ports including a card reader! It is also USI Pen compatible for those who like an e-signature to look like a wet signature. This is a 14" convertible machine with a touchscreen which should be the right mix of business and pleasure for most real estate professionals. By all accounts, the lowest spec Pentium model will start at $499 once it becomes available. I am personally very interested in this one and I may very well get one myself, though I've probably said that before on here and haven

It's Been Months

 Hello All, It's been months since I've written anything on here so I just wanted to check back in. The world of Chrome OS is in a waiting pattern while new technology is slowly churning out onto the market although there are a couple small, but key, developments I want to briefly touch on. First, awhile ago I wrote about Progressive Web Applications on here. Well, at Google I/O (Google's big developer summit for those who don't know) which is happening in a little over a week, they are doing a whole thing about making Progressive Web Applications more native to Chrome OS. This can be a boon for realtors and landlords alike. Imaging having the ability for someone to click on your icon on their home screen to inquire about a property or to pay rent or to put in for a maintenance repair, or anything of that sort without having to open a browser. That is what we are talking about here. This could be a major breakthrough in the real estate space if people utilize it properl
