Chrome OS software
Google announces new Chromebook laptops and an intriguing new device called the Chromebit that pushes Google’s operating system without trying to sell you a laptop.
Google’s mobile operating system may be the most popular software in the world for powering phones and tablets. But Google is also making a push for its other operating system, Chrome OS, which mostly powers laptop and desktop computers.
Consider a few of the new devices the search giant announced Tuesday. The Asus Chromebit is a small device that looks like an oversize flash drive that turns any screen or monitor with an HDMI video port into a full-blown computer. With the Chromebit, you can connect to a Wi-Fi network and run Google’s Chrome browser, check Gmail and watch YouTube — all through Google’s Chrome operating system.

The device will sell for less than $100, Google said. It’s set to be released this summer.
Then there’s the Asus Chromebook Flip, an all-metal device that’s a cross between a laptop computer and a tablet, which will sell for $249. Google also announced two new laptops from manufacturers Hisense and Haier. The companies’ $149 Chromebooks, designed for the education market, are available for pre-order today on Google’s online store. The Haier laptop is available on Amazon, while the Hisense one is available at Walmart.
