HP’s Refreshed, Colorful Chromebook 14 Offers Full HD Screen, 9+ Hours Battery Life.

It’s getting towards the end of the year, and that means it’s time for Hewlett-Packard’s Chromebook 14 refresh. The 2015 release isn’t as exciting as the $440 touchscreen model that appeared last December, but these are still some nice, well-priced laptops nonetheless.

Schools that were once hip to the idea of providing students with expensive iPads are now getting more bang for their buck — along with the convenience of a built-in keyboard — with value-oriented Chromebooks. So it should come as no surprise that one of the world’s top PC OEMs is stepping up its efforts in the Chromebook market with two new offerings, both of which feature 14-inch displays. The new Chromebook 14 sports a budget Celeron N2840 processor with 2GB of RAM, 16GB of internal storage, a 14-inch (1366×768) HD display (an optional Full HD display is also available), 802.11ac Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, a single USB 3.0 port and two USB 2.0 ports. The 3.74-pound Chromebook 14 also includes an HDMI port, microSD reader, and a 37WHr battery that is good for up to 9 hours and 15 minutes of runtime. HP is also throwing in twelve free Gogo in-flight internet passes (customers must activate the offer before 12/31/2015 and use the passed before 12/31/2016) with the Chromebook 14, along with 90 free days of Google Play Music and three free movie rentals from Google Play.

The story behind the story: New consumer Chromebooks are always nice, but HP is likely far more interested in the education and small to medium business market, where Google-flavored notebooks have a small, but solid foothold.
