HP has announced a new Chrome and a new Android-powered laptop

49 sec read

HP has announced two new notebooks both of which are powered by software made by Google. First up is the company’s new Chromebook. It teamed up with Google last year to launch the Chromebook 11 which was praised a lot for its design and vivid 11.6-inch display. The company follows that up with the new Chromebook PC. It also has an 11.6-inch display like the Chromebook 11 but the design language is much more in line with HP’s Chromebook 14 notebooks this time.

Last year, HP and Google partnered to introduce the Chromebook 11, a slick looking, if underpowered laptop that bore a striking resemblance to Apple’s old plastic MacBooks. The best part of the Chromebook 11 was its bright, vivid 11.6-inch display. Today the company is announcing the Chromebook PC, another 11.6-inch Chromebook powered by a Samsung processor. The Chromebook PC veers away from the slick design of the Chromebook 11, instead mimicking the design of HP’s larger Chromebook 14. The display has the same 1366 x 768 pixel resolution seen on most Chromebooks. It weighs in at 2.69 pounds and is just under an inch thick. Inside it comes with the Chromebook standard 16GB of storage and 2GB of RAM, which indicates the performance of the Chromebook PC won’t be much improved over last year’s Chromebook 11. HP is listing battery life at 6.25 hours, which is a bit less than we’ve seen from Chromebooks offered by Dell or Acer.
