HP’s latest Chromebook is a stunner. It comes with respectable specifications packaged in an all-metal body which lends a premium look and feel to the Chromebook. It also happens to be the first Chromebook to be powered by Intel’s Core m Skylake processors so it also boasts pretty decent specifications. HP introduced this new device at an event earlier today at Google’s New York office.
HP Chromebook 13 features a 13.3 inch display with 3200 x 1800 pixel resolution. Aside from the Core m Skylake processor, it can be configured with up to 16GB of RAM.
As far as the design is concerned it doesn’t really look all that different from some of the other Chromebooks that HP has created, but it’s said that Google has worked with the company on the design of this product, aside from the fact that its all-metal build makes it look very appealing.
It also features two USB-C ports, a USB 3.0 port, a microSD card slot, headphone jack with 11.5 hours of battery life. All of this is packaged inside an all-metal body that’s just over half an inch thick and weighs 2.86 pounds.
HP is going to start shipping the Chromebook 13 from next month, prices start at $499, the fully specced model is naturally going to cost more than this.
