Samsung and Google have expanded their collaboration on the Chrome OS platform.
Chromebox is essentially a mini-desktop that can be connected to a display. Google Chrome OS has been available officially only on laptops until now.
Google spoke about the new products:
Speed is integral to the Chrome experience. The new Chromebook and Chromebox, based on Intel Core processors, are nearly three times as fast as the first-generation Chromebooks. And support for hardware-accelerated graphics, a built-from-scratch multi-touch trackpad and an open-source firmware stack provide a much faster and more responsive computing experience. The new Chromebook boots in less than seven seconds and resumes instantly. With the Chromebox, you can be on a video conference while continuing to play your favorite role-playing game on the side.
