HP is a major player in the Chromebook market and the company today launched its thinnest Chrome OS-powered convertible yet, the HP x360 14. It’s the successor to HP’s original x360 which was released last year and it has a 14 inch display instead of its predecessor’s 11. The device has a 360 degree hinge so it can be used in four different configurations.
The HP x360 14 comes with a Full HD touchscreen display and can be configured with 8th Generation Intel Core i3 and Core i5 processors with 8GB of RAM and 64GB SSD storage. There are two USB Type-C ports, one USB Type-A port, a 3.5mm headphone jack, and a microSD card slot. All of this is packed inside a body that measures 16mm in thickness.
The company has developed this convertible as more of a premium device based on the success of the HP Chromebook x2. “With the success of the HP Chromebook x2 earlier this year, customers have signalled they want premium choices and powerful experiences in their Chrome OS devices,” he said.
HP is going to start selling the x360 14 in the United States from October 21st. Prices for this Chrome OS powered device will start at $599. It’s available for pre-order from HP and Best Buy online.
