A one-stop shop for all your Chromebook review needs

We’re all Google all day around here. We can’t get enough when it comes to Android, and Lloyd happens to have a place in his heart for Chromebooks, too. We’re big fans, and we just love seeing a platform like Chrome grow — and stumble — as it matures. We know that plenty of you guys feel the same way, and it’s great that we can get together and talk about things knowing that we all share some common interest. It makes our jobs fun.

While we love having fun, we also are pretty serious about looking at new Chromebooks and sharing what we think. This helps us stay up-to-date on what companies like Acer and Samsung are doing in the space, and it helps everyone know a little bit more about these products before money leaves our wallets. It doesn’t hurt that more than a few of us here at AC just freaking love our Chromebooks, either.

Here’s a list of all of our Chromebook reviews. We’re going to keep doing them, and we’ll keep this list updated.

The bid from Iliad comes as a surprise, not just for their previously unexpressed interest, but that Iliad is a smaller company that T-Mobile in both terms of subscribers and value.
