Hybrid Chromebooks Coming in Q2

Intel will work with Google and partners including Asus, Acer, HP, Lenovo, Quanta and Pegatron to launch hybrid Chromebooks in Q2, say supply chain sources. The sources said that vendors will focus on on 11″ – 13″ models, promoting them with low pricing. The US education market will be the first target, followed by roll-outs in Eastern Europe, LATAM and Southeast Asia. Prices are expected to be about 10% lower than similar Windows models.
