HP debuted a new Chromebook model, dubbed Chromebook 11 G4 and this device is meant for education purposes, it seems. It’s priced at $199, which makes it affordable for classrooms and it comes with a spill-resistant keyboard and rubber edges.


Those help it survive 2.3 foot drop tests, plus it also brings forth a 180 degree hinge, that lets the user fold the laptop flat and enjoy the educative content with schoolmates. HP’s product offers up to 9.5 hours of battery life, which means it will last for an entire school day. HP Chromebook 11 G4 EE is up for purchase this month and its specs include a 11.6 inch 1366 x 768 pixel display, an Intel Celeron N2840 Bay Trail CPU and optional 4G LTE.

There’s also WiFi 802.11 ac in the mix, Bluetooth 4.0, a HDMI port and an USB 3.0 port, plus an SDXC card reader and a HD webcam. Weighing a bit over 2.7 pounds, the product also measures 0.8 inches in thickness and brings 2 GB of RAM and 16 GB of storage in the entry level version. HP also offers versions with up to 4 GB of RAM and 32 GB of storage, but those sacrifice one hour of battery life.
