Updated HP Chromebook 14 Coming Next Month
HP Chromebook Now Comes With Improved Battery Life.
Chromebooks have been around for a while offering a very affordable option for a Windows PC, with low-priced notebooks running Google’s Chrome OS on a web-based interface that spins around the browser (you guessed it, Chrome).
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. These notebooks have seen a huge growth in sales, topping Windows and Mac notebooks in schools and businesses as well, experiencing a 43% increase year-over-year during the first six months of 2015, mainly thanks to corporate sales (Business to Business, or B2B). The standard HP Chromebook 14 has a 14-inch display with a resolution of 1366×768 pixels, up to 9 hours of battery life, an Intel Celeron N2840 processor, 2 GB of RAM and 16 GB of internal storage.
You get a 14-inch 1366-by-768 IPS display, 2GB RAM, 16GB of onboard storage, a microSD slot, one USB 3.0 port, two USB 2.0 ports, an HDMI connection, and a headphone jack. HP also unveiled the Chromebook 14 G4, aimed at the B2B market, offering additional security layers, console-based management, enhanced virtualization and VPN connectivity for workplaces and classrooms. The new Chromebook 14 line tones down the accent color spectrum to just a silver and light blue model—last year, HP offered four different colors and the year before that, three. The package also comes with 12 free Gogo in-air Internet passes for U.S. domestic flights, three free Google Play movie rentals, and 90 days free of Google Play music.
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.
