If we haven’t kept adult to date with all that is going on with Linux containers on Chromebooks, you can click here to review all we’ve created on a matter and get held adult with a latest info to date.
Now that we’re on a same page, there’s a fold in this whole growth cycle we’ve famous was coming. Dating behind years, Linux support has always been improved and more-supported on Intel-based devices. As we are saying some-more ARM inclination in a works (especially one being done with a absolute Snapdragon 845), we can’t forget about a existent inclination that are now out in a market.
The many critical one? The Samsung Chromebook Plus. Powered by a OP1 chip (RK3399 for those that caring about such things), Samsung’s ARM-powered Chromebook with a good arrangement and enclosed Pen is a device that finds itself in many users’ bags. With inclination like this, a ASUS Chromebook Flip C101, and a guarantee of arriving Snapdragon Chromebooks, a destiny of ARM-powered Chromebooks looks rather bright.
