Chromebooks throughout the past couple of years have been continuing to succeed in the computer industry, with new features such as Android App support and full Microsoft Suite support, winning over potential iPad shoppers. During CES 2018, many companies will continue to bank on the success of the Chromebooks and release new devices. One of those companies is HP, and they’re announcing two new models: the Chromebook 11 G6 and Chromebook 14 G5.
As with most Chromebooks that are being released, these two new models are being targeted towards education and enterprise markets. That being said, these new Chromebooks are just adequate for everyday use, which is because of the upgraded 7th-Generation Intel Celeron N processors. Potential users have the option of obtaining the base dual-core N3350 unit, or the quad-core N3450 model, with RAM maxing out at 8GB. As far as storage is concerned, each model can have up to 64GB of ROM, although it seems as though that can be expanded via a MicroSD card slot.
Both models, regardless of processor and RAM specification, come with Intel HD 500 Graphics. The smaller Chromebook model also features a MIL-STD 810G rating, making it durable for small drops and some extreme conditions.
When looking at the display, both models feature a 1366 x 768 resolution panel, with the option of changing it to an HD IPS touchscreen. When looking at I/O connections, both models feature two USB-C ports, one on either side, alongside two regular USB ports and even a headphone jack.
As is the case with CES announcements, pricing and availability details are slim, but HP is claiming that these new Chromebooks will be available sometime in February.
