HP Chromebook 11 unboxing and first boot

Posted by – October 29, 2013

I decided to buy a $279 ($303 with taxes) HP Chromebook 11 with the Exynos5250 Dual-core ARM Cortex-A15 with Mali-T604 inside, even though it would have been nice if it already would have been shipping with the newer Exynos5420 Octa Core ARM Cortex-A15/A7 with Mali-T628. I guess that Samsung doesn’t yet provide their latest big.LITTLE yet for third parties to ship in devices? As soon as a good cheap 13.3″ Exynos5420 Chromebook is available I’ll probably switch to that latest ARM Chromebook as my main video-blogging laptop.

Hampoo OMAP5 PCB Design House

Posted by – October 24, 2013

Hampoo shows some of their OMAP5 PCB Designs, use cases may be for in-car entertainment systems, medial usage, industrial usage. Of course it also depends what Texas Instruments plans to do with OMAP5 precisely. Hampoo may be one of the leading PCB designers in Shenzhen designing special use case PCB designs, they have a long history working on OMAP3, OMAP4 and OMAP5 and they now also work on Exynos5 and some other designs to come. Hampoo showcases their naked eye 3D tablet also, based on OMAP4470, I also filmed Hampoo showing off their tablets at Computex here: http://armdevices.net/2013/07/19/arm-cortex-a9-glass-free-3d-tab-10-1inch-by-hampoo/

HP Chromebook 11 launched $279, Exynos5250 (dual-core ARM Cortex-A15, Mali-T604)

Posted by – October 8, 2013

Yes! The Second ARM Chromebook is now released for $279, made by HP. But wait, still same Exynos5250? Why no Octa? Isn’t that the exact same Exynos5 Dual processor Samsung used in Samsung Chromebook released a year ago? Maybe it’s tweaked. This HP Chromebook 11 sounds to have a better IPS display, better build quality perhaps, MicroUSB charging (is it a 5A or at least 2A MicroUSB charger?) The really good news is that Samsung is providing its Exynos5 for ARM Chromebooks by third parties, such as the huge HP. It would be nicest to see Exynos5420 in there though. 28nm vs 32nm, Octa big.LITTLE vs Dual, Mali-T628 vs Mali-T604, 1.9Ghz vs 1.7Ghz, etc.
