Thanks to products like the Pixelbook and HP's Chromebook x2, this past year has been an awesome one for high-end Chrome OS machines. Just ahead of Google's event where we'll likely learn all about the Pixelbook 2, HP's announced its Chromebook x360 14.
Unlike the education-focused Chromebook x360 11, the x360 14 is being marketed as a premium device with fast internals, a pretty design, and slim bezels. As the name suggests, you'll find a 14-inch IPS WLED display with a resolution of 1920 x 1080. HP says its "Advanced Electrodeposition application" gives the Chromebook "a ceramic-like white finish."
The keyboard is backlit and the touchpad has a diamond-cut trim. In regards to ports, you'll find two USB-C ports, two USB-A ones, a microSD card slot, and a 3.5mm headphone jack.
Other specs include 64GB of eMMC storage, up to 14 hours of battery life, and your choice between an 8th-generation Intel Core i3 or i5 processor.
Pre-orders for the HP Chromebook x360 14 will open today with a starting price of $599. Come October 21, it'll be available at physical Best Buy stores.
