Hewlett-Packard (HP) unveiled on Wednesday its 'Chromebook14' which is being presented as powerful and sleek. The HP Chromebook14 looks more like a laptop than other Chromebooks.
HP Chromebook14, the first Chromebook powered by an Intel processor based on the Haswell microarchitecture, offering fast access to the web to tackle tasks while on the go, boasts a large display and optional 4G for enhanced connectivity — in a range of eye-catching colors.
The HP Chromebook14 offers the immersive web experience and visual enjoyment that demanding customers seek from all gadgets. The sleek, compact design — available in Snow White, Ocean Turquoise and Coral Peach — will be ready for the holiday season.
“There are customers telling us they are interested in new operating systems and in particular Chromebooks,” said Ron Coughlin, senior vice president and general manager, Consumer PCs, Services and Solutions, HP.
“We built the HP Chromebook to offer a great experience, choice and affordability, with a design that is truly unique.”
HP Chromebook 14 joins the HP SlateBook x2, the HP Slate7 and HP Slate21 All-in-One as part of HP’s approach to offer the Google experience as part of a multiple operating system strategy.
Accessing digital life has never been easier
The HP Chromebook14 offers a fast and easy way for customers to connect to favorite websites in seconds. It also offers a gateway to the Google experience, including Google Chrome apps like Gmail, YouTube, Google Drive and Google+ Hangouts for smooth, immersive work and play.
Automatic software updates keep the browsing experience fast, while the HP Chromebook’s 14-inch diagonal high-definition (HD) display delivers vivid color. The HP Chromebook14 also includes a 16 GB solid-state drive for fast start-up times. With the HDMI, USB 2.0 and USB 3.0 ports and a combination headphone and microphone jack, customers can easily and quickly connect to displays and other devices.
With no contracts or commitments, certain models of the HP Chromebook include up to 200 MB of free data per month for two years of fast 4G mobile broadband service on the T-Mobile network. This allows customers to enjoy internet access without having to search for Wi-Fi spots.
Customers can easily access their content from any Internet-connected device — while at home or on the go — with 100 GB of free storage on Google Drive for two years. Plus, users can visit the Chrome Web Store to customize their HP Chromebook14 by installing applications for work or play.
