Google & Intel Confirm New Line of Haswell-Powered Chromebooks

Google and Intel have just confirmed they're set to launch a new line of Chromebooks to be powered by Haswell.

The news was originally announced earlier today at the Intel Developer Forum in San Francisco. Via the official follow-up announcement on Google Chrome's blog: "Intel's latest processors sip less power to improve battery life by more than 2X over previous generations, while offering increased performance. This means these new Chromebooks last almost all day so you can focus on getting things done."

As for what to expect, Google promises Chromebook users won't be disappointed.

"Across the new lineup, the devices offer superb battery life and a variety of new designs-from a light and portable Acer Chromebook, to the large display on the HP Chromebook14, which comes in various colors; from the versatility and portability of the Toshiba Chromebook, to the ASUS Chromebox, suitable anywhere you need a computer. With today's announcement, now six of the top laptop manufacturers are offering Chromebooks."

Acer, HP, ASUS and Toshiba will also manufacture the new laptop.

Pricing and release dates for the updated Chromebooks have yet to be released, though are expected within the next few months.
