HP’s new Chromebook features a 14 inch display, an Intel Haswell processor, and a $300 price tag. Google unveiled the new Chrome OS laptop along with new models from Acer and Toshiba earlier this month, but it won’t hit the streets until November 3rd.
The Chromebook14 is HP’s second Chromebook with a 14 inch display. But while the first model had a 1.1 GHz Intel Celeron 847 processor and up to 4.25 hours of battery life, the new model packs a 1.4 GHz Celeron 2955U Haswell chip and up to 9.5 hours of run time.
It has 2GB of RAM, 16GB of storage, a USB 3.0 port, 2 USB 2.0 ports, an SD card slot and an HDMI port.
The weakest link might be the display. While the Chromebook14 has a bigger screen than any other Chrome OS laptop, it’s just a 1366 x 768 pixel display.
HP is also expected to offer a $349 model with 32GB of storage and built-in support with wireless data from T-Mobile.
