YUKI93, August 20, 2021Lol, you obviously have no idea what you’re talking about. Even Samsung’s newest Galaxy Ch … moreYou neither. Some clarifications:
1. Chromebook runs better on ARM, period. Though probably not your fault as most don’t know / have never tried, but it’s just a lot more efficient than its x86-64 counterpart in both performance and resources, and runs into far fewer errors. But since most people read way too much into i5 / i7 performance and the fact that Google is being marketed as a laptop replacement, that can’t be changed. Not to say the ARM version is superior, but ChromeOS just isn’t quite x86-64 optimized
2. The above point also drives point two. While I agree, the $ 500-600 purchase doesn’t make too much since there are functional fast Chromebooks for such a simpler educational / workable laptop – and it’s the ARM versions. I look at my Lenovo Duet Chromebook and can’t even justify buying the Tab S lite / E series because my Duet can be more than half the price. And the USI pen works almost as well as the Samsung pens. Yes, the market needs more USI pens, and Google needs to work on their app library to get stylus support and root out some USI issues, but for $ 350 with the Duet Chromebook and USI Pen, anyone can do almost anything at the price offer the same.
Not to say there are no bugs, for example Google and its OEM vendors are currently targeting the ARM version as the “cheaper / lower end” of the market segment, so it’s not easy to get an ARM version with more than Find 4GB of RAM – but that’ll change, and for all of the reasons above, it’s likely the very few branches that Google decide to compile the entire operating system into 32-bit, even though the processor is 64-bit capable, which Again the flexibility as drastically reduced even for Linux apps, it is difficult to get a 32bit version nowadays. But all in all, it depends on how Google is targeting Chromebooks. I only use it for online (email, YouTube, e-reader) and some productivity work that uses the pen. From a stylus perspective, even the Surface can stay aside, since Windows really doesn’t offer the sharpest touch experience since PocketPC. To top it off, I can confidently say that there is no product in the $ 350 range that can do the same for me.
I want to try ChromeOS instead of Android on the tablet form factor – 11-12.5-inch LCD display with SD845-860 or MTK 1000 + / 1200 chip, 4-6 GB RAM, UFS storage (instead of almost all eMMCs out there). Come on to OEMs, especially Xiaomi / Asus / Realmente / Lenovo.
kek, August 20, 2021Every time someone mentions “Linux” as the great savior for all end users … moreI currently have 4 laptops: a dedicated Windows laptop from 2015, a 2018 Windows laptop that only runs Manjaro Linux KDE natively, a Pixelbook Go, and an M1 Macbook Air. I’ve experienced and for the full range of laptop platforms For me personally, Chrome OS is by far my favorite platform in a laptop. People who complain about how “crappy” or “limited” Chrome OS is usually have little to no experience with Chrome OS. I tried it for the first time in 2014 and have been very impressed ever since. The Linux implementation extends the functionality a lot. You don’t have to go to the command line to use it. By default, you can download a .deb file and click to install it. It is very easy for the end user. All you need to do is dig as deep into Chrome OS as you want. The M1 Air is great too, it’s fast, but I prefer Chrome OS over Mac OS. If all operating systems could run all software, I’d prefer Chrome OS over all others.
kek, August 20, 2021Every time someone mentions “Linux” as the great savior for all end users … moreI definitely agree with you. I myself have always jumped around in no fewer than ten Linux distributions, and all of them have had very different experiences. Now that Microsoft is providing us with the Windows Subsystem for Linux (WSL), I don’t miss using the Linux desktop operating system as my daily driver. Now I occasionally use Linux either through it or VMware.
Wasted chip with absolute trash specifications.

With ARM chipsets like the Mediate … moreYes, the specs are usually never worth the price, but with the adoption of the Lenovo Chromebook Duet, sometimes it is not obvious that you are using low specs. Could definitely be better, and I understand that ChromeOS might just be good for productivity tasks compared to media / app use, but I still think tablets are way better for a full operating system than a mobile operating system. The Surface lineup and how popular it is shows that.

Why do you think Windows has been successful so far? Is it because it’s free? No. It was successful because it is easy for most users, something that many die-hard Linux fans cannot understand. They always jump in with their “moo console” forgetting that in the real world, people need technology to simply get things done, not to add more steps. And that without mentioning the clutter of different distributions that you can find, each with their different communities, problems, UX, etc.
So don’t assume that something is “better” with Linux. Why should someone use ChromeOS when they can get a real device (PC / laptop) with full Linux + Windows or even better a Macbook Air with an M1 chipset? Heck, even some tablets like the Samsung Tab S6 Lite are way better options than a crappy Chromebook.
I’ll give you another great example: Android. AOSP is pretty unpopular so it hasn’t been used by an OEM in a long time. Even most of the custom ROMs add things to make it better. You could even say Android is as big as it is thanks to this customization that every company is adding on top of that. Just compare how much Xiaomi / Samsung sells in a year alone compared to Pixel phones lmao, which are Google in-house devices.
Even Android One devices didn’t sell for the same reason
lcd 82, August 20, 2021🤣🤣 .. your opinion is fortunately worthless, chrome is growing and it’s awesome … moreLol, you obviously have no idea what you’re talking about. Even Samsung’s newest Galaxy Chromebook 2 laptop with an Intel Celeron CPU and 4GB of RAM with 64GB of storage starts at $ 550 for screaming loud! I’m seeing much more powerful Windows 10 laptops with 2020 Intel Core i5 or AMD Ryzen 5 CPU and 8GB of RAM with 256GB of storage for the same money.
And by the way, “great system”? I personally tried it for a full week and it is a complete joke. It really feels like using a generic Android tablet as not all of the apps installed on the phone can be installed on it, especially mobile games. Since I used it as a dual boot on my Windows 10 laptop, I got rid of it for good and have never looked back. I prefer to use Android’s desktop mode solution like Samsung DeX or LG Screen + or even Motorola Ready For.

I want a Chrome OS tablet to come out with a Snapdragon 778/780 or Dimensity 1100/1200 and 8GB + RAM. It would work like a dream. I understand people’s lack of enthusiasm for Chrome OS, but for me it’s the perfect secondary OS. With Android and Linux support, Chrome OS can do * almost * anything you need to do outside of your primary computer. We just need better performance now to keep up.

With ARM chipsets like the Mediatek Kompanio range, it’s a strong argument in favor of affordable Android-supported tablets. The problem with Chrome OS powered laptops and tablets, however, is that they always offer sub-par specs at a relatively high price. Even then, the non-shock-resistant ASUS Chromebook Detachable CM3, with the same specs as its shock-resistant counterpart, is $ 390 MSRP. A used flagship Android smartphone from 2019 or even 2020 with a Snapdragon 855 or 855+ or 865 chipset can still perform better all round, and that goes for phones with desktop mode support like Samsung, LG, and the like Motorola.

Wait a minute, that’s basically the ASUS Chromebook Detachable CM3 with added MIL-STD-810H shock resistance.
Can Kompanio run Windows instead?

ChromeOS tablets have always made more sense to me than Android tablets. Especially since you can run Android apps on ChromeOS, it should be standard (plus better software support / less bloat).
