Chromebooks with Haswell processors to release ‘in the coming months’

Windows 8 tablets aren’t the only devices that are about to get a battery boost from Intel’s Haswell processors. Google announced on Wednesday that new Chromebooks from Acer, HP, Asus and Toshiba would be available “in the coming months.” Most importantly, the new browser-centric laptops would feature Intel’s Haswell processors, which means that they should receive a significant boost in battery life. Although Google has positioned Chromebooks as low-cost alternatives to traditional laptops, there is little evidence that they’ve caught on as the company had hoped. Research from NetMarketShare posted earlier this year suggests that Chrome OS is used even less frequently than Windows RT, so it seems that Google has a way to go to convince people to buy laptops that almost exclusively serve as interfaces for web browsers.
