  1. I hope it really isn’t 1366×768 for the 14″. I own the “old” Samsung Chromebook which is great except for the display resolution. But that’s 11.6″ though.

  2. Oh it is 1366×768. Even 15.6 inch laptops have that resolution unfortunately. I’m not sure how long it’s going to take for laptop and PC screens to switch to something that’s got more DPI. Not expecting mobile phone like DPI but still …

    It does say actually say quad core Cortex A15 processor, i.e. it’s 32 bit. Also, the 64 bit version of K1 has not been released yet and the only announced version so far is a dual core.
