[Deal Alert] Lenovo ThinkPad 11e Chromebook is $149.99 ($150 off) on Newegg

[Update: Not dead] Google has no plans for future laptops, future of Andromeda OS uncertain

The Chromebook Pixel 2013 was the first product to bear the Pixel brand, showcasing the potential of Chrome OS on high-end hardware. Two years later, the Pixel 2 was released as one of the first consumer products with USB Type-C ports. But it looks like there won't be a third Chromebook Pixel, or any future Google laptop for that matter.

Samsung Chromebook Plus now available on the Google Store for $449, with $20 Google Play credit

Most Chromebooks are inexpensive with lacking hardware, because Chrome OS really doesn't need a lot of power. At the opposite end of that spectrum is the Samsung Chromebook Plus, at a more expensive starting price than most Chromebooks - $449. Now the laptop is available from the Google Store, with a $20 Google Play Store credit included.

Google says all Chromebooks launched from 2017 and onward will support Android apps

Play Store and Android apps access on Chromebooks were announced in May of 2016 and in the time since, they have rolled as developer then stable builds to the Asus Chromebook Flip and Acer Chromebook R11 as well as the Google Chromebook Pixel 2. We know that the functionality will be coming to more of the existing Chromebooks down the line, but we didn't know how it would translate to future Chromebooks. Now Google has made that clear.

In an update to the corresponding Chrome OS support page, Google states that, "All Chromebooks launching in 2017 and after [...] will work with Android apps in the coming future." I don't think any of us are surprised by that, seeing as how the move makes all kinds of sense for everyone, but it's good to see it in writing.

Lenovo's funky Yoga Book laptop will get a Chrome OS option next year

The Yoga Book is definitely one of the most interesting and divisive laptop designs to come out in a while - users either love or hate its touchscreen/keyboard deck hook. To a digital artist its integrated "Create Pad" is a godsend, but a mechanical keyboard fan probably sees its integrated haptic key layout as sacrilege. Either way, you'll soon have more options if you want to check out that unique hardware: a Lenovo executive told a Tom's guide reporter that the Yoga Book would be sold in a Chrome OS model in 2017.

Enpass Password Manager brings its Android app to the Chromebook, with offline support and autofill

For more than a year, I have been using Enpass to save my passwords and other personal information, and absolutely loving it. I know there are alternatives, but for more reasons than I can count, Enpass is the best for me. If you're an Enpass user as well, there's probably one piece of the puzzle that you've been missing: Chromebook support. The existing Enpass Chrome extension only works if you are on a desktop computer with the Enpass app installed, so it's of no use on Chrome OS. But ever since Google announced Android apps would be able to run on Chrome OS, the Enpass dev has been hard at work making his app compatible with the platform.

Just as several new smartwatches make their debuts on the Google Store, two (and a Chromebook) say their goodbyes. The ASUS ZenWatch 2, Casio Smart Outdoor Watch (great name, right?), and the ASUS Chromebook Flip are now unavailable for purchase from Google's hardware shop; in fact, the links to their listings now automatically redirect to the Android Wear and Chromebook landing pages, respectively.
