Before the yearly BETT education event, HP is presenting new Chromebook updates targeted at teachers and students. Although cost and toughness are the main points of emphasis, the HP Chromebook x360 11 G4 stands out.
EE HP CHROMEBOOK 11 ANDAMP; 11MK The first two Chrome OS devices are nearly identical, with the exception of the 11 G8 EE’s Intel Celeron (coming in February) and the 11MK G8 EE’s octa-core MediaTek MT8183 (available in January), which boasts up to 16 hours of battery life. Apart from that, they are typical clamshells that can be set up with 32 or 64GB of storage and up to 8GB of RAM. The 11.6-inch 1366 x 768 display comes in a touchscreen version.
Design-wise, the objective is to take into account classroom settings that can resist drops onto concrete and plywood. This is accomplished by using reinforced USB-C port, co-molded rubber contact points, and stronger corners. Spills and efforts to pry off keycaps won’t harm the keyboard. It also comes in the reasonably intriguing Nautical Teal hue, in addition to Jet Black.
CHROMEBOOK X360 11 G4 EE from HP This 2-in-1 sports an 11.6-inch touchscreen that is compatible with the HP USI Garaged Pen, as the name would imply. In a slot right above the keyboard, this flat stylus can be kept and charged (15 seconds yields 45 minutes of power). There is an 8-megapixel world-facing camera on the left keyboard rest that can only be used with an Intel Celeron processor while the device is in tablet mode. There are two USB-C ports, two USB-A ports, a microSD card slot, and a headphone jack among the ports. The anticipated release date is March.
CHROMEBOOK X360 11MK G3 from HP This less complicated convertible HP Chromebook for education, which runs on a MediaTek processor, is devoid of the pen and a second camera. Later this month, the device will be made accessible.
CHROMEBOOK 14 G7 by HP The HP Chromebook 14 G7 is the largest Chrome OS laptop being presented today. Its existing design, which has a 14-inch display with or without touch, is intended for teachers. Additionally designed to endure drops and spills, HP boasts that the chassis, keyboard, and display can all be cleaned using wipes. It has really been proven to endure 1,000 cycles of disinfection.
It may be customized with up to 8 GB of RAM and 128 GB of storage and is only powered by an Intel Celeron. There are two USB-A ports, a USB-C port, HDMI, a microSD port, and a headphone jack. Next month, it will be made available.
