Kaby Lake G Chromebook in Development


May 13, 2013
in a report from XDA Developers, a new board is in development on the Chromium Git, codenamed "Kidd." "Kidd" is a Chromebook that will be featuring a Kaby Lake G processor. Since it's announcement in January, not many devices have showed up on market with the Intel processor with onboard Radeon graphics.

If pricing is there I'll be in for one for sure, especially if you can install Windows on it.

Historically, the case for high specs on a Chromebook didn’t exist for the majority of consumers. Now, with Linux apps released for Chrome OS, people can install full desktop Steam onto their devices (Pixelbooks only for now). GPU acceleration has not been ironed out by the Chrome developers yet, so the experience of playing games is pretty poor.
