Yes performance wise the Intel Hazwell beats even the new Exynos Quad core in the new Chromebook 2 . If I buy another Chromebook it will be a Intel. Plus with Intel I can boot Linux and run most Linux apps . Not a lot of apps in Linux run in ARM cpu's.

Yeah, my Samsung Chromebook is also slowing down. It's still faster than any of the PCs or Macs I use by a wide margin though. So you think the Intel version will perform better?

I own a Samsung Chromebook 3 and I eventually think that Google will begin a selective upgrade path for devices. All devices will receive security updates, but Google may be selective on new features depending on the devices capabilities. I myself already see a slight degration in performance in the Samsung from the time I bought it. Probably not as bad as the so called Windows rot many experience. But none the less any OS even a low impact one like Chrome OS can affect a already minimalist hardware like the ARM CPU in the Samsung. It sure makes me wish I had bought a Intel based Chromebook and not a ARM.

This explains it ...
My Chromebook just this morning rebooted and relaunched with some new gizmos. Was wondering what was up -- it would have been nice to get a popup notice.
