Hewlett-Packard (HP) has just publicized the launching of its two Chromebooks with high hopes of stealing the thunder from its rivals such as Toshiba and Acer. Like the earlier versions, the Chromebooks are available in 11 and 14 inches panel screen.
The11-inch variant is equipped with an Intel’s Bay Trail Celeron processor. Though it is not fast as other Chromebooks that is powered by Core i3 processors, it is faster than its predecessor as far as speed is concerned.
The new version boasts of 4GB of RAM which is improved to two times better than the older 11-inch HP Chromebook which only has 2 GB of RAM. The other specs of the new variant has a crisp 1366 x 768 screen resolution, generous 16GB of storage (plus 100GB of Google Drive space), and an enhanced battery life that HP claim will last for at least eight hours.
The device is not as chic as the earlier version as it is available only in silver or turquoise colors, but it showed a lot of improvements in most other departments. The new 11 inches Chromebook will be launched on October. The actual price of the device is not yet revealed but according to HP on its press release, the price will start at $279.99, though a product description page lists the starting price at $199.99.
On the other end, HP’s new 14-inch Chromebook is somewhat different from its predecessor. The new version is more potent as it is beefed with up with vaunted Nvidia’s K1 processor. It can be equipped with either 2GB or 4GB of RAM and either 16GB or 32GB of storage (plus the 100GB of Google Drive storage).
When it comes to resolution the new version is not yet confirmed whether it will come with a 1366 x 768 screen.
The other pros of the new version include slimmer form factor and lesser weight. It is available in four colors which are silver, turquoise, orange, and green. The battery life of the new version is cinched to last for more than 8 hours. The bigger model carries the same price tag as that of the earlier version at $299.99 and will be available in the market on October 22.
