It was difficult to find much in the way of Chrome OS at the 2015 Consumer Electronics Show. That’s likely due to the cycle of chips that powers Chromebooks and Chromeboxes: We’re really just getting started with a new cycle now. See Exhibit A: The Acer Chromebook 15, which uses a fifth-generation Intel processor. That’s the first of what’s likely many new Chromebooks in 2015; at least three new Chrome OS devices are currently in the works, for example.
We explain more about the chip cycle, its impact on upcoming devices and what to expect from Chromebooks that use the next-gen silicon on this week’s Chrome Show podcast. Tune in below or download the show here to listen in.
