Even though IFA 2018 was more than a month ago, HP isn’t happy with the releases from Berlin and debuts one more device. It’s the HP Chromebook x360 14, a convertible priced up from $599. The Chromebook is a premium product with a 360 degree rotating hinge, that supports usage modes like tent, tablet and stand.
The device has 8th generation Intel Core processors, Core i3 or Core i5 ones, plus up to 8 GB of RAM. This follows the $600 Chromebooks from Dell and Lenovo, which came to IFA 2018. HP also had a detachable Chromebook x2, in the same price range. The new HP model packs a full size backlit keyboard, plus Intel UHD Graphics 620 and comes with a battery life of up to 13.5 hours (based on mixed usage).
The screen is a 14 inch IPS LCD with Full HD resolution and narrow bezels. HP provides 64 GB of storage here, of the eMMC variety, although we were expecting a bit more. There’s an HD Wide Vision webcam in the mix and the design has a slight ceramic feel to it. It all comes in a compact size, at 12.81 inch x 8.93 inch x 0.63 inch. There are USB Type-C ports here, plus two Type-A ports and an audio jack.
HP Chromebook x360 14 is priced at $599 and up and it’ll be available on Best Buy from October 21st.
