HP’s x360 14 Chromebook is a big change from last year’s model


This week, HP announced a new 14-inch machine running Google’s Chrome OS: the HP Chromebook x360 14. That’s not to be confused with the 14-inch HP Pavilion x360 that runs Windows or last year’s HP Chromebook x360 11.

HP says this is its thinnest Chromebook ever, at just 16mm. The entry-level configuration ships equipped with an eighth-generation Core i3 CPU, but a Core i5 option will also be available. As for graphics, the x360 14 has Intel’s UHD Graphics 620. Other specs include a 1080p display, 8GB DDR4-2400 SDRAM, and 64GB of storage. In terms of connectivity, it of course has 802.11b/g/n/ac Wi-Fi, plus Bluetooth 4.2. Ports include two USB-C and two USB-A, a headphone jack, and a microSD card slot. HP promises up to 13.5 hours of battery life. There’s also a backlit keyboard and an HD webcam with a microphone. The device measures 12.81 x 8.93 x 0.63 inches.
