It says models from HP and Acer. The HP model will have a 1080P display, which is about normal for (good) Chromebooks. The will support three 4k display line had me interested in a different way. Will people buy this for a home/work computer with multiple screens in one or both places? I think I’d want a graphics card is its own container to do that, but you are probably talking one connection. Charge through the same USP port that connects to the graphics card.
Notice the separate model numbers for the CPUs. I wonder if that indicates we will all be going that way to avoid being owned by Microsoft (via Windows 11).
Curious. Is there a feature that differentiates a Chromebook CPU from a windows laptop CPU?

The ones going into chromebooks are generally lower price, lower watts, lower performance.
But as far as functionality / instruction set - no.

That is what I thought, but this product is clearly targeted above even a middle of the road CPU. Looking at best buy, I see Chromebook range from $72, to $999 while windows laptops range from $149 to $4299. Windows clearly owns the high end, but Chromebook stretch well into middle of the road machines.
Curious as the why AMD calls this specifically a Chromebook CPU, since there are many lower performing, lower power, CPU’s out there targeted at windows.

Not too surprising when you compare the latest 15W CPU to a 2 year old 28W product.
But Yeah, Intel does this too.
