Google promises faster Chromebooks shortly

The next generation of Chromebooks, which are said to be of better performance, seems to be on its way to the market, as reported by Vice president of Chrome

Did you want to own a Chromebook, but were turned off by the fact that their performance were not up to the mark as provided by other devices? Then you need to wait a little longer as a better performing Chromebook is on its way for you.

According to Sundar Pichai, senior vice president of Chrome, faster Chromebooks are on the way to the market as he reported in an interview. Google seems to be concerned about the issue of sluggish performance and is looking forward to user’s feedback after they have sampled the second-generation device.

He added in the interview as they are excited about the Chromebooks and as they have received a lot of positive feedback, now they are looking forward for its next generation. They are expected to improve the dimensions of speed, simplicity and security.

He believes that the performance of the Chromebook has improved a lot from the day it arrived to the market as they are updating it constantly every six weeks. Apart from all these they are also expected to be designed with low power consumption, long battery life and low price in mind, so they might not be a very good option for the users who needs high speed. They will be capable of basic online social needs but not with gaming or editing hi-resolution photos.

The users face a lot of problems with the Chromebooks performance which includes the basic requirements of the users as the Google Docs, flash based games, keyboard repeat rate and others. They are also faced by CNET’s Stephen Shankland, who also mentioned these difficulties while dealing with his Chromebook.

He also mentioned that if this is true for all the models on the market then a lot of work is needed to increase the performance of Chrome OS in order to stay in business with the Tablets and the Ultrabooks.
