While Chromebooks are on a roll with Acer and Hewlett-Packard already releasing their models on the market, it’s time for Asustek Computer and Toshiba to take a bite out of the pie and introduce their own Chromebooks with Intel’s Haswell processors next year.

Acer will hurry things up a little and wants to release a 11.6-inch Chromebook C720P this December at a price range of $299 / €220 / £183, while Asustek will launch Chromebooks in 2014 with models composed of 11.6-inch and 13.3-inch screen displays. Asustek’s Chromebook prices are estimated at around $199 / € 146 /£121 and up to $329 / €242 / £200. Toshiba is also expected to release its Chromebooks soon, but it looks like the Japan-based vendor is outsourcing production to Inventec.

The Chromebook shipments are not at all bad, this including the Chromebook Pixel launched by Google, having accounted for less than 5% of total global notebook shipments up to this point. Whether users will see them more useful than a common netbook, it remains to be seen.
