HP introduces a new commercial Chromebook. The laptop is the first HP Chromebook with a 15.6 "screen and numeric keypad. HP claims that the laptop will soon be on sale in the US for a starting price of $ 450.
The new HP Chromebook features a 15.6 "screen with ips panel and 1920×1080 pixel resolution, thin screen edges and a dualcore Pentium 4417U or Core i5 processor, depending on the model. Laptop comes with 64GB of storage memory emmc , but there will also be a model with 128GB of storage.
In addition, the Chromebook of 15.6 & # 39; & # 39; has a touch screen, 4GB ram and a full-size keyboard with backlight and numeric island, says Notebookcheck. The Chromebook case is made of metal and features a micro-SD card reader and two USB-C connections. The laptop can be charged via USB-C. With a suggested retail price of $ 450, including taxes, including about $ 484, the laptop will move to the medium to high category on HP Chromebooks.
Not the first or most impressive Chromebook in the HP family. For example, the American company previously released several laptops with Chrome OS, where the screen could be tilted 360 degrees. HP also introduced a Chromebook for the enterprise market previously, and the manufacturer also launched Chromebooks for the educational market earlier this year.
Acer also introduced a Chromebook with a numeric keypad last week. It is not known why Chromebooks with a number island did not appear before. Adding numpads makes a laptop's production more expensive and its presence is especially popular among corporate users. With Chromebooks, more and more laptop makers are focusing on this market.
HP Nederland has not yet announced whether the Chromebook is coming to Benelux and at what price the laptop will be available here.
