POSTED BY David Allen IN Laptops ON 5 Feb 2013

For some reason there is a surge in new laptops coming out that are Google Chromebooks, the latest addition to the range is from HP. But unlike the Acer and Samsung Chromebooks, the HP model is bigger and that means it is going to be more expensive too! The HP Chromebook has a nice sized fourteen inch screen, plenty of SSD storage, communications and it will be costing around $330, but do not be put off with the price as this Chromebook has a lot to offer the buyer.

So we know the basics of the HP Chromebook, so let us take a closer look at what this high end Chromebook from HP has on offer, such as the fourteen inch screen with Bright View LED backlit display offering a 1366 x 768 of pixel resolutions. It is powered by a dual core Intel Celeron Processor and comes with a 100 GB of Google Drive Cloud Storage with 16 GB Solid State Drive (SSD) for storage purposes.

HP have priced this high end version of the Chromebook to start from around $330, which is slightly more expensive than the Acer and Samsung Chromebooks, but the HP model does offer the buyer more features and is likely to appeal to the laptop user more because it comes with its own solid state drive (SSD) storage and of course, has a larger display too.
