    I thought the point of Chromebooks was that they didn't need much horsepower so seems a bit counter productive to be churning out them with the latest and greatest CPUs.

    Maybe they want it to perform with top quality.

    I suppose they might be focussed on the power saving benefits of Haswell rather than the performance increase over the previous generation.

    That would be rather useful. This is the mobile device age. Everyone is on the go and people need something that will last a while and if they can save power, they should go for it. I believe there are probably a lot of benefits behind using a Haswell. I will probably go into more research on these Haswells myself lol.

    Google Docs has to be improved before I can switch to a Chromebook. It just doesnt have the features of MS Word.
