HP toughens up a pair of Chromebooks for CES 2018
Chromebooks have made headway into offices and schools and HP's latest options, announced ahead of CES 2018, bring fresher specs and tougher build quality to the category to handle life being passed around from person to person.
Dressed in lightweight but sturdy gray plastic, the new 14-inch Chromebook 14 G5 and 11.6-inch Chromebook 11 G6 are built to MIL-STD-810G standards, with reinforced corners and hinges and spill-resistant keyboards. Each is available with HD-resolution IPS touchscreens that fold back 180 degrees for those times when a group needs to huddle around the screen.
Around the sides you'll find USB-C ports for accessories and external displays. They're also used for charging to simplify keeping a fleet of them ready to use. And you get 802.11ac (2x2) wireless.
