HP just debuted new Chromebooks, but they’re not your average Chrome OS laptops, rather Chromebook Enterprise models. They’re MIL-STD 810G tested and also have spill resistant keyboards, with reinforced pots for durability. They go from Intel Celeron models with eMMC storage to premium Intel Core i7 units with PCIe SSD.
Here’s the rundown of all version:
HP Chromebook Enterprise 14 G6
HP Chromebook Enterprise 14 G6 has a 14 inch screen with a 180 degree hinge, that lets you fold the screen flat. You can choose between HD and Ful HD with optional touchscreen support. There’s up to 8 GB of RAM and 128 GB of eMMC storage, plus an Intel Celeron CPU. The price goes from $399 and up and there’s WiFi ac, Bluetooth 5.0, an 88 degree webcam and stereo speakers. We also have dual microphones, USB-C port and two USB-A ports, as well as HDMI and microSD card slot.
HP Pro C640 Chromebook Enterprise
This one comes in June, with a better build, that involves an aluminum body and support for 10th gen Intel Comet Lake CPUs. It goes from Pentium to Core i7 and reaches 16 GB of RAM and 128 GB of storage. There’s still eMMC storage inside. This laptop packs a 14 inch Full HD or HD panel with touch or non touch options and a 180 degree hinge. The notebook weighs 3.4 pounds and includes two USB-A ports, plus two USB-C ports, as well as a HDMI port and audio jack.
This time we have WiFi 6, stereo speakers, two mics, optional fingerprint sensor. There’s no price yet.
HP Elite c1030 Chromebook Enterprise
Finally, the most premium unit is the HP Elite c1030 Chromebook Enterprise, that could easily be sold as a premium Windows machine, but it has Chrome OS. This one comes in august, with a 2.97 pound chassis and a 13.5 inch edge to edge touchscreen Full HD panel with 3:2 ratio. We’ve got a 360 degree hinge, that makes the laptop a tablet. It also supports a HP Active Pen for pressure sensitive input. There’s 10th gen Intel Core i7 Come Lake as the CPU, 16 GB of RAM, up to 256 GB of PCIe SSD.
WiFi 6 and USB-C (two ports) are available, as well as an USB-A port and a microSD card slot. There’s 4G LTE even and a fingerprint sensor. In spite of the premium build, it’s still made of recycled materials. No price here either.
