Samsung’s status in the Chromebook market is starting to wane

Samsung’s original Chromebook cemented the company’s status in the market early on but it’s a different market now. Acer has recently taken the Chromebook sales crown, at least in the most recent quarter, and there are far more Chromebooks running on alternatives to Samsung’s Exynos chips. Intel processors are found in many Chromebooks and¬†HP looks to be switching from a Samsung chip in its next model. Acer is starting to sell non-Intel Chromebooks for the first time ever but it too is choosing an alternative to Samsung with Nvidia’s Tegra K1 in the Acer Chromebook 13.
