Processor Type Processor technology Processor also regarded as the brainchild of a computing system {as the CPU acronym literally translates} is responsible for instruction execution, core system calculations, and system efficiency. Chromebooks typically use power saving chipsets from the likes of Intel, AMD, and ARM-based units while Chromebases and Chromeboxes tend to feature higher-end systems on a chip. Intel Celeron Intel Celeron
Processor Speed The processor speed is the default clock speed of the chipset powering the device 1.6 GHz 1.6 GHz
Processor Boost the highest frequency the processor can reach when maxed out. Maxed out the sense of the number of processes or programs running before it hits its maximum clock speed. up to 2.2 GHz up to 2.1 GHz
Processor Cores This refers to the stack of physical cores (multiple independent processing units) on a chipset. It's usually the more the better, but that isn't always true considering that the individual clock speed of processing cores can be a huge factor in determining the overall capability of a processor unit. Quad Core Dual Core
Processor Cache A CPU cache is a hardware cache used by the central processing unit (CPU) of a computer to reduce the average cost (time or energy) to access data from the main memory. A cache is a smaller, faster memory, closer to a processor core, which stores copies of the data from frequently used main memory locations. 2 MB 1 MB
Processor Model The processor model refers to the unique identifying combination of numbers, letters or both that of a chipset as defined by the manufacturer from the factory. Intel Celeron N3160 Intel Celeron N3050
Cooling This refers to the means through which the central processing unit of a computer is cooled. An actively cooled chipset requires a fan that intelligently spins on demand while passively cooled SoCs (systems on a chip) are typically of a lower TDP (thermal design power) which essentially negates the need of a dedicated cooling fan. Passive (fanless) Passive (fanless)

Memory

RAM Type DRAM stores a bit of data using a transistor and capacitor pair, which together comprise a DRAM cell. DDR3L LPDDR3 SDRAM
RAM speed RAM speed or memory bandwidth is the rate at which data can be read from or stored into a semiconductor memory by a processor. Memory bandwidth is usually expressed in units of bytes/second, though this can vary for systems with natural data sizes that are not a multiple of the commonly used 8-bit bytes. 1600 MHz N/A
RAM Slots Refers to the number of RAM slots available for expansion N/A N/A

Storage

Display Type Display technology A number of display technologies exist and currently, LCD is the primary type used in Chromebooks. TFT (Thin Film Transistor), IPS (In-Place Switching), OLED (Organic Light Emitting Diode), AMOLED (Active-Matrix Organic Light-Emitting Diode), Super AMOLED (an even advanced version of AMOLED), Resistive Touchscreen (Resistive touchscreens contain two layers of conductive material with a very small gap between them which acts as a resistance), Capacitive Touchscreen (Capacitive touchscreen technology consists of a layer of glass coated with a transparent conductor). LCD LCD
Display size This refers to the diagonal size of the display in inches 11.6 inches 11.6 inches
Resolution The display resolution or display modes of digital television, computer monitor or display device is the number of distinct pixels in each dimension that can be displayed. 1366x768 HD 1366x768 HD
Touchscreen Refers to whether the display is equipped with the technology needed for touch sensitivity and response.
IPS IPS (in-plane switching) is a screen technology for liquid-crystal displays (LCDs). In-plane switching involves arranging and switching the orientation of the molecules of the liquid crystal (LC) layer between the glass substrates. This is done, essentially, parallel to these glass plates.

Graphics

CTL Chromebook NL61Acer R11 C738T w/ N3050
GPU GPU (Graphics Processing Unit) is a single-chip processor designed to rapidly manipulate and alter memory to accelerate the creation of images in a frame buffer intended for output to a display, This includes things such as lighting effects, object transformations, and 3D motion. HD Graphics 400 HD Graphics (Braswell)
GPU Memory In computer architecture, there's either dedicated or shared memory and sometimes both. Chrome OS devices primarily utilized shared graphics memory. Shared graphics memory refers to a design where the graphics chip does not have its own dedicated memory and instead shares the main system RAM with the CPU and other components. Shared Shared
Base Clock The refers to the base clock speed of the GPU 320 MHz 320 MHz

Connectivity

Bluetooth Bluetooth is a wireless communications technology for exchanging data between mobile phones, headsets, computers and other network devices over short distances without wires, Bluetooth technology was primarily designed to support simple wireless networking of personal consumer devices.
HDMI HDMI (High-Definition Multimedia Interface) is a compact audio/video interface for transferring uncompressed video data and compressed or uncompressed digital audio data from a HDMI-compliant source device to a compatible computer monitor, video projector, digital television, or digital audio device.
Ethernet Port Ethernet is a family of computer networking technologies commonly used in local area networks (LAN), metropolitan area networks (MAN) and wide area networks (WAN).
Headphone Jack A phone connector, also known as phone jack, audio jack, headphone jack or jack plug, is a family of electrical connectors typically used for analog audio signals. The phone connector was invented for use in telephone switchboards in the 19th century and is still widely used.
USB Type USB cables come in different versions like USB 2.0 and USB 3.0. These standards are primarily of the characteristics of the cable i.e the functions it offers and the speed at which it runs while the type of USB cable in the likes of (USB Type A, USB Type B, and USB Type C) essentially refer to the physicality and design of the plugs and ports. USB A USB A
USB Ports USB (an abbreviation of Universal Serial Bus) is an industry standard that establishes specifications for cables and connectors and protocols for connection/ports, communication, and power supply between computers, peripheral devices, and other computers. 2x USB 3.0 1x USB 2.0, 1x USB 3.0

Octane Octane which is Google's JavaScript test suite was released to replaces the V8 benchmark. According to Google, "Octane v.1 consists of 13 tests, 5 new ones and 8 from the original V8 Benchmark Suite."[7] Octane v.2 supplanted v.1, consisting of "17 tests, four more than Octane v1. Development on OCtane has been stopped and is slowly being phased out. That, however, hasn't hindered its popularity. 8200 7200
Passmark Passmark is a computing benchmark like Geekbench and Octane. In computing, a benchmark is an act of running a computer program, a set of programs, or other operations, in order to assess the relative performance of an object, normally by running a number of standard tests and trials against it. The term benchmark is also commonly utilized for the purposes of elaborately designed benchmarking programs themselves. 1470 890
