We recently learned that HP was working on a Chromebook with an Intel Skylake processor and 16GB of RAM. It turns out that’s just part of the story.

According a spec sheet posted on the HP website, the upcoming HP Chromebook 13 G1 is a fanless notebook which will be available in a variety of configurations.

The 3 pound notebook supports up to 16GB of RAM, up to a 3200 x 1800 pixel IPS display, and up to an Intel Core M processor.

Update: The HP Chromebook 13 is official, and it sells for $499 and up.
