Google stellt 6 neue Chromebooks vor, darunter neue Chromebook Plus-Laptops mit mehr KI

Google announced a suite of new Chromebook features Tuesday, including new generative AI tools and a centerstage spot for its Gemini chatbot on Chromebook Plus models. In turn, we’re also getting some new Chromebook hardware that ships with those features at launch.

Read on for a brief overview of all the new Chromebooks that are available now (or will be very soon).

Standard Chromebooks now support GIF screen recordings, one-click access to Google Tasks, and a new Game Dashboard that lets you remap controls to your keyboard. You can also set them up using an Android phone.

Asus Chromebook CM30

Asus’ new Chromebook CM30 is a 10.5-inch, MediaTek Kompanio 520-powered convertible that comes with up to 8GB of RAM and 128GB of eMMC storage. It’s a good pick for casual users who prioritize portability, as it includes a stand and a detachable keyboard. It sports 5MP front and rear cameras, and Google says it offers up to 13 hours of battery life. Shoppers have the option of upgrading it with LTE connectivity.

The Chromebook CM30 is now available at Bester Kauf Und Walmart for $299.

HP Chromebook 14-inch

The HP Chromebook 14-inch is a simple 14-inch laptop with a low-end Intel Pentium CPU and UFS 128GB of storage. The only thing that doesn’t seem aggressively basic about it is its finish: It comes in fun colors like “lilac lavender” and “sky blue” in addition to “glacier silver” and “chalkboard gray.”

The Chromebook 14-inch isn’t out yet, but it will eventually start at only $249 at Walmart.

Chromebook Plus models are guaranteed to have least 128GB of storage, 8GB of memory, 1080p+ webcams, and other standardized specs. This new wave of them is equipped with a slew of new Google AI tools at launch (in addition to the aforementioned Chromebook-wide features), including a “Hilf mir beim Schreiben” text generator, generative wallpaper and video backgrounds, Magic Editor on Google Photos, and a Gemini chatbot that’s built right into the app shelf. They also come with a year’s worth of Google One AI Premium (normally $19.99 per month), which gets you Gemini Advanced, Gemini in Google apps, and 2TB of storage.

Two quick notes: One, we’re playing a little fast and loose with the word “new” when it comes to specs, here. None of the Chromebook Plus devices Google announced Tuesday were built completely from scratch: Two of them are Plus-ified versions of older Chromebooks, and the other two are different variants of some laptops from Google’s initial Chromebook Plus launch last fall. But hey, it’s always nice to have more options.

Secondly, Google’s blog post mentions a fifth new Chromebook Plus — an updated Acer Chromebook Plus 514 with an Intel Core CPU — but that model actually launched back in mid-April. It starts at $349.99 at Costco.

Acer Chromebook Plus Spin 714

Recommended by Google for users “looking for extra power,” this Plus upgrade to Acer’s existing Chromebook Spin 714 packs a new Intel Core Ultra 5 115U processor. (That’s a pretty big step up from the Chromebook Plus series’ CPU baseline.) It keeps the same convertible 2-in-1 design, which includes a 14-inch touchscreen, an aluminum chassis, and a 1440p QHD webcam.

The base Chromebook Plus Spin 714 with 8GB of RAM and 256GB of SSD storage is listed for $699 bei Best Buy, matching the non-Plus version, and it’s now up for grabs.

Acer Chromebook Plus 516 GE

Mashable’s current Lieblings-Gaming-Chromebook has also gotten the Plus treatment, which includes a slick new obsidian black finish and a better Intel Core 5 120U processor (up from 12th-generation Intel Core i5). It stuck with its Vorgänger‘s vivid 16-inch 1660p display and RGB keyboard — but it also has the same ultra-reasonable price of $649, which is clutch.

Bester Kauf has the Acer Chromebook Plus 516 GE in stock with 8GB of memory and 256GB of SSD storage.

Asus Chromebook Plus CX34

This new configuration of the Chromebook Plus CX34 (one of the original eight Chromebook Plus models) swaps its 12th-gen Intel Core i3 processor for a newer 13th-gen Intel Core i5 CPU. It otherwise retains the same 14-inch build, complete with 180-degree lay-flat hinges and a speckled white finish. It’s still configurable with a touchscreen, too.

The Chromebook Plus CX34 is now available at Bester Kauf starting at $499 with 8GB of RAM and 128GB of SSD storage. That’s $50 pricier than the original model’s base configuration.

HP Chromebook Plus x360 14-inch

HP has added another 14-inch hybrid Chromebook Plus variant to its lineup, this new one being the HP Chromebook Plus x360 14b. It’s a slight downgrade from the first version, the 14c (which we reviewed), trading its Intel Core i3-1215U processor and SSD storage for an Intel Core i3-N305 processor and UFS storage. But it’s also significantly cheaper.

Walmart will soon sell its base configuration with 8GB of memory and 128GB of UFS storage for $429. For comparison’s sake, the 14c variant starts at $789.99 on HP’s website.
