ARM vs. Intel: Why chipmakers want your Chromebook's brains

Intel has every reason to elbow into what used to be ARM's turf exclusively.

  • Samsung's new Chromebook 2

  • NPD puts Samsung on top of the Chromebook market, at least in retail.

  • Samsung's Chromebook 2 uses Intel Celeron chips, although the company's chip division manufactures the Exynos processor.

  • A very small number of Chromebooks use the Intel Core i5: the Chromebook Pixel, a $1,200 computing device that Google used to lure developers to the platform.
