Google is reportedly working on a Chromebook with touch functionality. It is supposedly gong to be released by the end of this year, 2012. Google will be selling it under their own brand, if it comes out. It is rumored that this new touch-enabled Chromebook will run both Android OS and the Chrome OS. So it is unclear if it is a tablet that doubles as a laptop.
The design is thought to be a premium item so, who knows if they will keep it in the low hundred or go the Apple route and mark up the price. This whole touch Chromebook idea seems pretty cool and i see its use would be very relevant to today when everything has a touch screen. Even the directory in the Student Union Building is touch screen.! So I hope google does end up releasing this product it should be very interesting and maybe change the way we view a laptop.
