We’ve seen teases of the firstĀ Asus Chromeboook but now there’s an official-looking spec sheet. There aren’t too many surprises here although two that impress us are support for 802.11ac Wi-Fi and an expected 10 hours of battery life. Asus claims this Chromebook has the largest trackpad available, so we’ll see.

Also on this week’s podcast is discussion on a smart storage strategy: Chromebooks don’t come with a ton of local space and Chrome OS could delete files on you if you’re not careful. Plus we take a peek at a great WebGL demo that puts a 3-D graphical shooter in your browser without a plug-in.
