HP's new Chromebook 14 built from the ground up, costs $299.99 (hands-on)
HP released its firstearlier this year in April and now, just a few months later, there's a new one with nearly the exact same name, starting at $299.99. This one however -- according to HP -- was built from the ground up to be a Chromebook.
The new Chromebook 14 features Haswell-based architecture, and according to HP will deliver 9.5 hours of battery life. The 14-inch screen runs at a not too impressive 1,366x768-pixel resolution and looks pretty awfully pixelated. Also the bezel feels a bit wider than we'd like and at over four pounds it's noticeably heavy for something that includes only 16GB of storage. Thankfully, HP is offering 100GB of free Google Drive storage, redeemable with purchase of the device.
Make no mistake, however. With price starting of $299.99 (for the Wi-Fi-only version; $349.99 for the coming 4G model) this is a budget machine. And all that that implies.
