The new HP Chromebook x360 14 G1 is a convertible laptop with a full HD touchscreen display, support for up to an Intel Core i7-8650U processor, up to 16GB of RAM, and an aluminum chassis.
Basically it’s a premium Chromebook built with business users in mind.
That said, it still has one disappointing feature — HP only offers the laptop with up to 64GB of eMMC storage. There’s no option for faster storage or for more built-in storage.
If you view Chromebooks primarily as devices for interacting with the cloud, that might not be a problem. But if you’re going to buy a premium Chromebook it’s a little disappointing that you can’t max out the storage specs a bit more.
The HP Chromebook x360 14 measures about 0.6 inches thick and weighs about 3.7 pounds. It’s powered by a 60.9 Wh battery that HP says should be good for up to 13 hours of use, depending on the configuration.
HP will offer a choice of processors including Pentium 4415U, Core i3-8130U, Core i5-8350U, and Core i7-8650U and the computer comes with 8GB or 16GB of DDR4-2133 memory and 32GB to 64GB of storage.
There are two USB 3.1 Type-C ports for charging, data, and video, a USB 3.1 Type-A port, a headset jack, stereo speakers, a backlit keyboard, and a 1920 x 1080 pixel display.
