HP already has a certain tradition in the notebook market since the company was one of the first to invest in this industry. Meanwhile, modernity has given a rebound in some sectors of the company, which began to invest in Chromebooks. Recently, the company announced at the event just before the official opening of CES 2019 its first line of basic Chromebook laptops with AMD processors.
The design of this device stays very close to what is delivered on most Chromebooks, having two USB-C inputs, giving you another option to connect to the device. HP has brought two screen options to the device; the 14-inch display of the most expensive version features a Full HD touch resolution display; this option gives more usability to the user, allowing them to use it both as a laptop and tablet.
This is the first time the brand has given up using the Intel processor in these laptop models, and this shows their concern to bringing an even more affordable product to those who do not need so much performance for basic activities. The company has made two available processor versions: the AMD A4 and AMD A6.
- AMD A4 / AMD A6 Processor
- 14-inch screen with 1366 x 768 resolution without touch / 1920 x 1080 with touch
