HP is offering customers a refreshed lineup of Chromebook notebooks. That includes the HP Chromebook 14, which includes some more advanced hardware inside and a new Sky Blue color option in addition to the older Turbo Silver.
The new version comes either in a 14-inch variant with a 1366x768 resolution display and a battery life of up to 9 hours, or with a full HD display that will also come with a shorter battery life. Inside there's Intel's Celeron N2840 processor, 2GB of RAM and 16GB of internal storage.
HP is offering some freebies with this new Chromebook 14, including 12 free Gogo in-air internet passes for people who travel a lot, along with three free Google Play movie rentals and 90 days of free Google Play music. The regular version will be priced starting at $249.99, while the one with the HD display will start at $279.99. Both will go on sale November 8.
In addition, the company is selling the HP Chromebook 14 G4 in October starting at $279. It has been made specifically for business and education customers. HP says:
The Chromebook 14 G4 has built-in features such as multi-layered security, console-based management and enhanced virtualization and VPN connectivity for workplaces and classrooms. It is the first Chromebook to be verified for Citrix Receiver 1.8 for Chrome, enabling access to applications, desktops and data easily and securely. In addition to using the cloud infrastructure with Google Drive, students and SMBs can also take advantage of up to 32 GB eMMC internal storage to store documents or videos locally. Optional HP Care Packs offer customers confidence in their investment beyond the one year standard limited warranty offerings.
