This story is probably standing on shaky ground right now but anything is possible. According to Venturebeat, a user on Reddit reported that a Google Opinion Rewards survey questioned them about a Chromebook Pro. Google Opinion Rewards is a Google app that gives users Play Store credits for answering surveys. It’s actually a really nice app and you can rack up some great credits and not have to spend your own money on buying apps, but that’s for another story. The survey was pretty vague and all we can do is speculate on its message.
They asked what a Chromebook Pro should be like in my opinion and what type of people would want to use it. They also asked what the differences between a normal Chromebook and a Chromebook Pro would be. That’s all.
So what would a Chromebook Pro look like? I’d imagine you’d want more processing power and stronger applications than what Chromebooks can currently run. When one thinks of a Pro machine it’s usually something that can muscle through large files and run multiple heavy programs like Photoshop and Lightroom.
A Chromebook Pro isn’t all that unimaginable, after all Apple made the iPad Pro — and it’s Pro status is questionable. Chromebooks have been gaining popularity and more people are opting for Chromebook rather than Windows PC’s and Macs because the price point is much lower.
The Chromebook Pixel is already a high end Google Chromebook so perhaps Google is planning on revamping that model with more muscle. With Chromebooks being able to run Android apps now, it is entirely possible a new category of Chromebook is on the horizon.
