Google Announces HP Chromebook 11, Will Cost $279By: Zach Walton - October 8, 2013
Last month, Google announced a number of new Chromebooks from a variety of OEMs, including HP, Toshiba and Asus. At the time, HP had only announced a refresh of its previous Pavilion Chromebook – the HP Chromebook 14. Now the company is back with a smaller, cheaper Chromebook.
Google and HP announced today that the HP Chromebook 11 is the newest machine to join the Chromebook family. As the name implies, it sports an 11-inch 1366×768 display that promises a wide 176 degree viewing angle. As for other specs, the HP Chromebook 11 is equipped with a Samsung Exynos 5250 GAIA CPU, 2GB of RAM, 16GB SSD, 2 USB 2.0 ports, micro-sim slot for LTE connectivity and micro USB out.
As with every other Chromebook, those who purchase the HP Chromebook 11 will receive 100 GB of Google Drive Cloud storage free for two years. On top of that, those who purchase this Chromebook will also receive a 60-day free trial of Google Play Music All Access and 12 free sessions of GoGo Inflight Internet service.
The HP Chromebook 11 will be available starting today at select retailers for $279. It will also become available via HP’s store on October 16. There will be an LTE model available later in the year, but neither Google or HP would specify which carriers will support it yet.
Alongside the announcement, Google also released a vide for the HP Chromebook 11 featuring Power Rangers, the Super Friends, The Jetsons, The Wonder Woman TV series and a cornucopia of other references for the pop culture obsessed techies out there. Check it out:[Image: Google Chrome/YouTube]
