HP’s latest Chrome OS laptop is one of the few Chromebooks to feature a full HD screen. It’s also one of the few to feature a touchscreen… which makes it one of the only models to have both features.
The HP Chromebook 14-x050nr Touch also packs 4GB of RAM, 32GB of flah storage, and an NVIDIA Tegra K1 processor.
HP first unveiled its new NVIDIA Tegra-powered Chromebooks in September, but this model only recently became available for purchase.
The laptop supports 802.11ac WiFi, Bluetooth 4.0, has 1 USB 3.0 port, 2 USB 2.0 ports, HDMI output, and features a 14 inch, 1920 x 1080 pixel display. It’s powered by a 37 Wh battery which HP says should provide more than 8 hours of run time.
HP’s Chromebook measures 13.5″ x 9.5″ x 0.7″ and weighs 3.8 pounds.
Priced at $440, it’s a bit expensive for a Chrome OS laptop. But it’s only about a third the price of a Google Chromebook Pixel, one of the few other options for folks looking for a model with a high resolution, touchscreen display (although Google’s laptop has a higher resolution screen and a faster processor than HP’s).
HP continues to offer other Chromebooks with some selling for as little as $280 and some models featuring smaller screens, Intel processors, and other options.
