At the end of September, we learned of the closure of Stadia. Google recognized that it had not managed to gain a foothold in the world of cloud gaming and, consequently, let its proposal in this field pass to a better life. However, the company’s interest in the gaming world has not disappeared.

The Mountain View giant has announced “the world’s first laptops designed for cloud gaming.” It is a line of Chromebooks made up of Acer, ASUS, and Lenovo devices that boast high-resolution screens and RGB keyboards, as rumors had already told us.
