Samsung Chromebook Pro might get an new powerful variant, with an Intel i7 processor and additional RAM. Our friends at Chrome Unboxed had earlier posted about benchmark reports showing up for such a Chromeook. Today, they are back with more solid evidence on this.
Chromebook Pro With Intel i7
According to the report, when you search for Samsung Chromebook Pro on Google, Samsung’s AdWords campaign shows up. AdWords are paid advertisements placed right above search results.
Samsung’s AdWords campaign reads “The New Samsung Chromebook Pro – Intel Core i7 Processor”. The link takes you to the current Chromebook Pro’s page on Samsung’s website. However, this advertisement campaign is a clear indication of what Samsung is planning.
Earlier reports from benchmarks had shown this new Chromebook Pro with 16 GB of RAM. A combination of 16 GB RAM and i7 processor sounds very attractive. This could be Samsung’s attempt to push the Pro to business customers. My work machine is has an i7 processor and 16 GB RAM!
I was planning to pick up a Pro if Google does not release Eve by November. Will this device be out before that? Would you consider a Chromebook with 16 GB RAM and i7 processor? If you have previously purchased a Chromebook Pixel, I wouldn’t be surprised to see you say yes!
