HP is trying to upscale the Chromebook with a new HP Chromebook 13, a product designed in conjunction they say with Google that takes a lot of what we know about Chromebooks.
Basically they use the Chrome browser to access cloud based Applications, and services, and tools.
And wrapping it in a slightly nicer case.
This is a 13 inch laptop.
It's got a brushed aluminum bonding, a soft touch underside.
It's got the same bang in ohms in audio branding as a lot of other HP systems these days.
And inside, is the first Chromebook to use the 2nd generation of Intel's The core M processors, and that seems like a good choice for a nice mix of performance and battery life at a decent price.
Hey, you're gonna get 11 1/2 hours of battery out of this.
What's it all going to cost?
It's a it's a little bit more expensive than traditional Chromebook it's gonna start at $499 and it should be available by the end of April.
That is the the HP Chromebook 13.
