Posted at 01 November 2013 16:11 CET by Jan Willem Aldershoff

Google is working on Chromebooks based on Intel’s mobile Bay Trail Atom System on a Chip (SoC) and a new Tegra SoC from Nvidia. The Bay Trail Chromebooks  going by the codenames ‘Bayley Bay’ and ‘rambi’ appear in the Chromium source code. The Bayley Bay Chromebook is a Bay Trail mobile and/or desktop reference board as the developers write.

The actual CPU inside the board is the Intel Atom E3845 which has 2 MB cache and runs at 1.91 Ghz.  The processor is accompanied by 2 GB of RAM and has the usual wireless features like Wifi and Bluetooth. On ‘rambi’ we were unable to find more details so far.

The developers of Nvidia have recently introduced a new Tegra System on a Chip (SoC) , the Tegra 124. The SoC is the successor of the Tegra 114 and both the 114 and 124 are based on the ARM Cortex-A15 MPCore.

    Are people seriously considering Chrome books?
    Gimping your PC, and performing everything, and storing everything on someone else's storage, for a monthly subscription cost, just seems so ... single point of failure ....
