HP unveils its cheapest Chromebook ever

HP announced the Chromebook 11 G4 this week, offering up its cheapest Chrome OS laptop yet. The device starts at just $200, though that may vary depending on where you pick one up. HP’s website says the average price is actually slightly higher at around $219.

The new Chromebook packs an 11.6-inch 1366 x 768-pixel display, an Intel Celeron N2840 processor, 4GB of RAM, 16GB of storage, an HD webcam and dual speakers. It also comes with plenty of ports, including support for USB 3.0, USB 2.0 and HDMI. The company will apparently offer a more expensive version with a nicer display and 32GB of storage as well.

The Chromebook 11 G4 is really meant for the classroom, though it could also make a pretty nice laptop for casual consumers as well. Unfortunately, HP isn’t selling the new laptop directly, though it shouldn’t be too hard to track one down.

The company also took the opportunity to unveil a pair of convertible Windows machine. The Spectre Pro x360 G1 switches easily from tablet to laptop. Meanwhile, the Pro x360 310 G2 works in four different modes and features a durable design with a mechanical hinge. Again, these models are meant for education, though they may pop up in stores before too long.
