HP is refreshing its line of Chrome OS laptops. As expected, the company’s new HP Chromebook 11 features an Intel Bay Trail processor instead of the Samsung Exynos 5 ARM-based chip used in HP’s last few 11.6 inch Chromebooks.

Interestingly HP is moving in the other direction with its new HP Chromebook 14. Instead of an Intel Haswell processor like those used in the company’s older models, the new HP Chromebook 14 has an ARM-based chip from NVIDIA CPU.

HP Chromebook 11

The smaller model features an 11.6 inch, 1366 x 768 pixel display, an Intel Celeron N2830 processor, 2GB or 4GB of RAM, 16GB of storage, and up to 8 hours and 15 minutes of run time from a 36Whr battery.

The new HP Chromebook 11 will be available with 802.11ac or 802.11n WiFi, Bluetooth, and optional 4G LTE and HSPA connectivity.

It features USB 3.0 and USB 2.0 ports, HDMI output, and a headset jack, and the laptop measures 11.8″ x 8.1″ x 0.8″ and weighs 2.8 pounds

HP says the new Chromebok 11 should be available in the US starting October 5th for $280 and up (although the product page currently shows a list price of $200).

HP Chromebook 14

HP’s larger Chromebook has a 14 inch display (which the press release says is a full HD screen, but which the product page says is a 1366 x 768 pixel display), 16GB of storage, and an NVIDIA Tegra K1 processor. Like the smaller model, it’ll be available with 2GB or 4GB of RAM.

The laptop measures 13.5″ x 9.5″ x 0.7″ and weighs 3.8 pounds. Not only is this model thinner than the Chromebook 11… it’s also fanless.

The Chromebook 14 features 802.11ac WiFi, optional mobile broadband, USB 3.0 and 2 USB 2.0 ports, HDMI output, and a headset jack.

HP plans to begin selling the new Chromebook 14 October 22nd for $300.

    1. I guess they assume you’ll be buying from a different manufacturer of you are planning on playing for reals.

  1. I love my Chromebook 14 (coral red, 4GB ram + T-mo) from last year, but I think this new one will solve basically all my gripes with the current one.

    1) thinner! although I hope build quality doesn’t suffer because the current one is MUCH sturdier feeling than other cheap offerings from HP. this one is .37lbs lighter so it might make a difference too.
    2) screen! 1366×768 is the devil’s resolution.

    I don’t think I’ll miss the intel CPU since my wife has accidentally erased my crouton (only wanted to play minecraft) twice now thanks to the “OS verification is turned off” screen when the unit is in dev mode. It wipes the whole thing with one hit of the space bar.

  2. I would not trust a HP low-end machine… Asus is the only OEM that I would trust for low-cost manufacturing. I say this from personal experience. The prices look great, but parts of the laptop will have issues 6 months later (even with light usage). Reward the good OEMs with your business. I love my business HP laptop and business HP inkjet printer… but that love ends there.

  3. The press release on the 14 says “14-inch FHD diagonal screen” which would seem to describe the 1920×1080 (1080p).
