HP is bringing two new Chromebooks to the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas next week. The HP Chromebook 11 G6 Education Edition is a compact laptop with a ruggedized case, a 180 degree hinge, and support for up to 8GB of RAM and up to 64GB of storage.
HP’s new Chromebook 14 G5, meanwhile, isn’t explicitly positioned as a laptop for the education market. But this 14 inch model also has a spill-resistant keyboard and MIL-STD 810G tested body.
Both models are expected to be available in February.
Both laptops are about 0.7 inches thick and both are available with a choice of Intel Celeron N3350 or Celeron N3450 Apollo Lake processors.
They supports 802.11ac WiFi and are available with optional touchscreen displays. The larger model is also available with a full HD display option, while the 11.6 inch model is only available with an “HD” screen.

Both also feature USB Type-A and Type-C ports and microSD card readers. Aside from the screen size and display options, another difference is that the larger laptop has a speaker above the keyboard where it’s unlikely to be obstructed, while the Chromebook 11 G6 EE has speakers on the bottom of the laptop.
