    Hewlett-Packard and Acer were among four hardware makers previewing new Haswell-powered Chromebooks this morning at the Intel Developer Forum in San Francisco. But, so far, HP is the only company offering actual details about what its next Chromebook will look and feel like before it arrives in time for the holiday shopping season. However, we were able to track down both HP and Acer during a small meeting at IDF, and we got a bit of hands-on time with prototypes of their respective upcoming Chrome OS laptops.

    Google and Intel introduced three new Chromebooks and a Chromebox today, each running Intel's powerful Haswell processors. The announcement came onstage at Wednesday's Intel Developer Forum keynote in San Francisco, as Intel VP Doug Fisher and Sundar Pichai, the head of Google's Android and Chrome divisions, showed off the new hardware. Fisher and Pichai revealed two new laptops from existing Chrome hardware partners, HP and Acer, and a Chromebook from Toshiba, and a Chromebox from Asus. These devices mark Asus and Toshiba's first foray into Chrome OS hardware. Fisher promised battery life improvements of up to 50 percent and performance jumps as high as 15 percent for Haswell Chrome devices over their previous generation chipsets.
