HP unveiled a chrome book during CES in Las Vegas. This is the Chromebook x360 14 G1, which is aimed at commercial users. That’s what Ars Technica reports.
The laptop has a full metal design, which is similar to the Elitebook series. The device is 16 millimetres thick and weighs 1.6 kilograms. The design is good to use for business customers and anyone who wants a more beautiful Chromebook. The laptop also includes a 14-inch FHD touchscreen, with slightly larger screen edges at the top and bottom. At the front is a webcam above the screen. It also has a backlit keyboard.
Inside, an Intel Pentium or Core i3, i5 or i7 comes with up to 16GB of RAM and 64GB of storage. The laptop includes two USB-C ports, a USB-A port and an input for a microSD card. It also has a headphone output. According to HP itself, the battery lasts for 13 hours on a charge.
The new chromebook is an addition to the already existing family of 14 inch chromebooks of the company. The most affordable Chromebook 14 now has AMD processors. This laptop still has a plastic design, but has no fans anymore and has AMD CPUs with integrated Radeon graphics.
HP itself states that this is one of the first AMD-Chromebooks. The AMD processors are often cheaper and should be more energy efficient. That’s why they’re a smart choice for cheaper laptops that require little energy. HP itself refers to the balance between price and performance that the processors offer, and claims that the combination between the CPU and GPU produce better performance for graphics. This means that editing videos and watching videos should be better.
The new Chromebook x360 14 G1 will be available in January for an as yet unknown price. The Chromebook 14 with AMD processors should also be available this month, starting at 269 euros.This news article was automatically translated from Dutch to give Techzine.eu a head start.
