HP updated its 14-inch Chromebook on Monday, revealing a refreshed design with new specs under the hood.

HP is packing its new Chromebook with a 1080p display, though there’s still a cheaper option with a lower resolution. It comes equipped with a 9-hour battery, an Intel Celeron N2840 processor, two USB 2.0 ports, one USB 3.0 port, HDMI and a microSD card slot. HP and Google are also throwing in 100GB of Google Drive storage for the first two years, 12 free Gogo passes for inflight Internet, 90 days of Google Play Music and three free Google Play movie rentals.

The new HP Chromebook 14 is available in Turbo Silver and Sky Blue. It weighs 3.94 pounds and comes in at just 17.8mm thin.

HP is offering the Chrome OS laptop for as little as $249.99, though that only gets you a 1366 x 768-pixel display. You’ll have to pay $279.99 for the 1080p model. Both options will launch on Nov. 8.
