HP entered the Chromebook market last year with the announcement of the Chromebook 14 and the Chromebook 11. Today, HP is introducing a new Chromebook that is powered by Samsung's Exynos 5250 dual-core processor clocked at 1.7GHz.
The new HP Chromebook mimics the design philosophy of the older Chromebook 14, although the display size is still small at 11.6 inches. There's also a new pair of color flavors: Snow White and Ocean Turquoise.
The Chromebook has a 11.81 x 8.10 x 0.81 dimension and it weighs 2.69 pounds. Others features include Bluetooth 4.0, Wi-Fi 802.11 a/b/g/n, a front-facing VGA camera, a 2GB RAM, up to 16GB of storage (plus 100GB of Google Drive storage), and up to 6 hours of battery life.
HP's new Chromebook will be available in July for $279.99.
It's worth noting that Chromebooks are running Google's very own operating system which is extremely light and has access to countless apps via the Chrome Store.
