HP Remodels Its Chromebook Line

hpA lot of people didn’t know what to think of Chromebooks when they first came out. Chrome wasn’t a proven operating system and many people thought that the Chromebook would die out just as quickly as it came in. But they have done well from the looks of things because HP just updated both of their models. The Chromebook 11 and the Chromebook 14 both have new designs, processors, touchscreens and some other new features. Both of the new models will come out on October and start at $280 and $300.

The 11-inch model used to be all white and glossy, and now HP has designed it to look more like the rest of their line of laptops. The last model also got recalled because the charger was defective, so they probably didn’t want to revisit anything related to the old version. Now you can get it in turquoise, black, or white. The new version is a little bit thicker and slightly heavier, but this is hardly noticeable. The reason for that is probably because they upgraded from the Samsung Exynos processor to an Intel Celeron GPU which will perform much better.

The display is 11.6 inches with a resolution of 1366 x 768. It features one USB 2.0 and one USB 3.0 port, an HDMI port and an SD card slot. You also get 100GB of Google Drive cloud storage free for two years. The Chromebook 11 is said to get up to nine and a half hours of battery life with a full charge. This one will be available on October 5th.

The 11-inch model isn’t the only one that got a nice remodel. The Chromebook 14 isn’t as brightly colored anymore, and instead there are classy hints of color along the edges and sides. Colors include silver, orange, turquoise or green. The color scheme is much more mature looking than before.

This one has a 14-inch touchscreen display with a resolution of 1366 x 768. The Chrome OS isn’t optimized for touchscreens so this feature might not be as cool as it sounds, although there are bound to be plenty of updates along the way that will make the experience more enjoyable.

Unlike the 11-inch Chromebook, the new 14-inch version actually got lighter and thinner than the last version. It is 0.7 inches thick and weighs only 3.78 pounds. Just like the last one, this one also offer free 4G mobile broadband from T-Mobile up to 250MB. It has three USB ports, a HDMI port and a micro SD slot. It will come with either 16 GB of storage or 32GB of eMMC storage. It offers up to 4GB of ram and will be available starting on October 22 for $300.
