With CES 2018 next week, we are already starting to see some pre-show announcements. HP jumped on that bandwagon today by announcing updated version of their HP Chromebook 11 and Chromebook 14.
The HP Chromebook 11 G6 is black with orange trim, sports a 180° hinge and is powered by the 7th generation Celeron N processors. It will come standard with 4GB of RAM and 64GB of storage. The updated HP Chromebook 14 G5 will have a slightly better processor option, can be configured up to 8GB of RAM and has 64GB of storage.
Both models will have HD IPS touchscreen options available although both still render at 1366 x 768 which is a bit of a disappointment.
As now required by Google on Chromebooks, both of the updated Chromebooks are charged via a USB-C port and both have a two USB-A ports and a MicroSD slot for additional storage. These two new Chromebooks will also be able to run Android apps out-of-the-box, again, another requirement for Chromebooks starting last year.
While pricing was not announced by HP for these updated models, if last year’s models are any indication, you can expect the Chromebook 11 to be under $200 while the Chromebook 14 will be slightly more in the mid-$200’s. Both models are expected to be available in February.
