New HP Pavilion Chromebook 14 gets official

HP Chromebook - for some reason we don't have an alt tag here

Google announced a new Chromebook earlier this afternoon: the HP Pavilion Chromebook 14. This confirms earlier leaks about a new Chromebook made by HP, which is actually the first Chromebook by this manufacturer, along with being the world’s first 14-inch Chromebook.

Other specs include a 1.1GHz Intel CeleronProcessor 847, 2GB RAM (upgradable to 4GB), a 16GB SSD, and an HP TrueVision HD Webcam with integrated digital microphone. The 14-inch screen features a resolution of 1366 x 768, and the laptop also features WiFi (a/b/g/n), Bluetooth, an Ethernet port, Altec Lansing dual speakers, an island-style keyboard, multi-touch support on the touchpad, 3 USB 2.0 ports, 1 HDMI port, and a dual headphone/microphone combo jack. At just under 1-inch thick, it weighs just under 4 pounds, and the 4-cell 37WHr 2.55Ah lithium-ion battery will last 4 hours and 15 minutes.

Unlike Lenovo’s new Chromebook that’s geared towards schools, this one does come with 100GB of free Google Drive storage for two years. It also has a very attractive price of only $329. It’s available directly from HP right now, and Google says it will appear in more retail outlets soon.

With more and more PC manufacturers getting on board, I hope Microsoft and Apple are taking note: there really is a serious competitor in Google Chrome.
