Chromebooks are a hit in the education sector so it’s not surprising to see that Google works with hardware manufacturers on Chromebooks for students. It announced HP’s Chromebook x360 11 G1 Education Edition earlier this year in March. It wasn’t available for everyone back then but it is now. HP has released the Chromebook x360 to the public.
Just like its education counterpart, the HP Chromebook x360 is a rugged notebook that’s well protected against bumps and bruises. It’s powered by a 1.1GHz Intel Celeron dualcore processor with 4GB of RAM and 32GB of eMMC storage.
The notebook also features an 11.6 inch HD touchscreen display that’s protected by Gorilla Glass. The display can be flipped around which makes the notebook more versatile particularly if it’s meant to be used for media consumption.
Connectivity options include Wi-Fi, USB Type-C and USB 3.0 ports, and a microSD card reader. HP claims that the battery on this notebook is good enough for more than 11 hours on a single charge.
HP Chromebook x360 is available for purchase starting today. Retailers like Amazon, Walmart, and Costco will sell it for $299.
As is the case with all Chromebooks, it’s powered by Google’s cloud-based operating system so an internet connection is essential to get the most out of this product.
