HP is a name that many of us are familiar with, and it seems that the PC giant is going to dip their toes in a relatively new market, that of the Chromebook. Yes sir, it seems that a HP Chromebook is in the pipeline, following after the likes of Samsung, Acer, and Lenovo in a bid to further expand their market reach. In fact, HP is said to have published a specifications sheet for the Pavilion Chromebook 14-c010us which revealed a 4-pound model that ran on a 1.1GHz Intel Celeron 847 processor, carrying a 16GB SSD, 14-inch LED-backlit display that has 1,366 x 768 resolution, a trio of USB 2.0 ports (oh, why didn’t they throw in USB 3.0 instead to keep up with the times?) and a webcam, of course.
Word has it that the HP Chromebook will ship in the weeks to come, sporting an advertising embargo date of February 17. The spec sheet read, “The HP Pavilion Chromebook gives you fast and easy access to the things you love and depend on, from a world of Google apps and services to your photos and social networks. And since it’s the first Chromebook with a 14-inch diagonal design, you get full-size comfort without giving up full-on mobility.”
We do hope to grab more information on the details of the HP Chromebook such as its exact availability as well as price, and if priced correctly, it looks set to move. Samsung might want to watch out for their backs here!
