Summary:

After leaks of two new Asus Chromebooks appeared earlier this year, one has broken cover. Say hello to the C200, an Intel-powered 11.6-inch Chromebook that will likely be supplemented with a larger C300 model.

We knew Asus was going to supplement its Chromebox with a pair of Chromebooks but only one so far has leaked. The C200 is an 11.6-inch Intel-powered Chromebook that comes with pre-loaded software just like the Samsung Chromebook 2. Samsung is now taking pre-orders for that device. And there’s hidden code in the Chromecast showing that Google could be adding weather and more to the low-cost wireless dongle; perhaps a personal dashboard is in the works for the big screen?

Join us for this week’s podcast as we discuss those topics as well as the new beta of Chrome Remote Desktop for Android and a slick little extension to sync clipboard data between Chrome on different devices.
