|Processor Speed The processor speed is the default clock speed of the chipset powering the device||1.0 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.||< 2.0 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.||Single Core|
|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.||Active (with fan)|
|RAM (Memory) RAM (Random Access Memory) is a type of computer memory that can be accessed randomly, any byte of memory can be accessed without touching the preceding bytes that allows information to be stored and accessed quickly from random locations. RAM is the most common type of memory found in computer systems, smartphones, tablets and other electronic devices.||2 GB|
|RAM configuration Refers to the maximum RAM capacity of this device||up to 2 GB|
|RAM Type DRAM stores a bit of data using a transistor and capacitor pair, which together comprise a DRAM cell.||DDR2L|
|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.||N/A|
|RAM Slots Refers to the number of RAM slots available for expansion||N/A|
|Storage Type Storage technology Categorized as secondary storage mediums, these are non-volatile and do not lose data when your Chrome device is powered down. They come in the form of HDD, eMMC, SSD and other form factors and standards in modern computing.||eMMC|
|Base storage Base storage refers to the minimum storage configuration offered with the hardware.||16 GB|
|Max storage configuration This refers to the maximum storage capacity that comes with this hardware||16 GB|
|Expandable This refers to removable storage media. In computing, external storage comprises of devices that store information outside a computer. Such devices may be permanently attached to the computer, may be removable or may use removable media.|
|Technology This refers to the implemented storage technology.||SATA|
|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|
|Display size This refers to the diagonal size of the display in 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|
|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.|
|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.|
|Battery Type Battery Type There are basically four main types of batteries used in mobile devices and they include: Lithium Polymer, Lithium Ion, Nickel Metal Hydride and Nickel Cadmium.||Li-Ion (Lithium Ion)|
|Duration (YMMV)* Battery durations are laboratory tested unless stated otherwise so essentially, your mileage may vary* and you should take this duration with a pinch of salt. More often than not, however, the listed duration is closer to the reality of the actual battery length in a real-world setting.||10 hours|
|Android This checkbox indicates whether or not this device supports the Google Play Store.|
|Linux This checkbox indicates whether or not this device supports the Linux container (otherwise Crostini) within the Chrome operating system.|
|Backlit keyboard This refers to whether the device is equipped with LED backlights in the keyboard for better visibility while typing in poor-lighting conditions.|
|Stylus This can be AES or EMR and are typically equipped with midrange to high-end Chromebooks and quite recently, Edu Chromebooks that are usually on the lower end.|
|Fingerprint As of 2019, fingerprint biometric security is relatively new in the Chrome OS ecosystem but we should start seeing more variations of the technology as time goes on.|
We’ll continue to post updates on Chrome OS as much as we can. You can support us via Venmo for now. We’ll come out with a more comprehensive donation system once remodeling is done.
