Haier's Chromebook 11 ships with an 11.6-inch display, powered by a 1.8 gigahertz Rockchip RK3288 processor. Inside the 3.3-pound package, buyers will find 2 gigabytes of RAM, 16 gigabytes of eMMC flash storage, and a battery that the company says will power the Chromebook 11 for up to 10 hours.

Our very real modern equivalents are robots, androids, artificial intelligence (AI) and the like. Over the past few decades, these more recent versions have been making a slow transition from science fiction to science fact to industrial technology.
