HP is refreshing its Chromebook lineup with four new models packing 14 inch displays and Intel Alder Lake-N processors and starting prices ranging from $300 for an entry-level model to $600 for the fanciest new Chromebook Plus model.

Three of the new Chromebooks are available now, while the third should hit the streets later this month.

Chromebook Plus x360 14

The most impressive models are the new HP Chromebook Plus 14 and Chromebook Plus x360 14 notebooks, which both feature 1920 x 1080 pixel displays, Intel Core i3-N305 octa-core processors, 8GB of LPDDR5 memory, and up to 256GB of UFS storage.

But they’re also two of the more expensive models, with prices starting at $530 for the clamshell HP Chromebook Plus 14 or $600 for the x360 model with a touchscreen display and a convertible tablet-style design.

The cheapest model is the new Chromebook 14a which starts at $300, but which unfortunately has just a 1366 x 768 pixel display. The good news is with an Intel N100 or better processor, this laptop should offer a nice step up in performance over previous HP Chromebook 14a models.

Here’s a run-down of key specs for HP’s new 14 inch ChromeOS laptops:
