CES 2019 is around the corner and HP has taken the wraps off its all-new Chromebook 14 ahead of the actual trade show kicking off tomorrow in Las Vegas. Among the five generations of HP Chromebook 14, this is for the first time that powering HP's Chrome OS laptop is a dual-core AMD processor.
The latest generation of HP Chromebook 14 will be up for grabs sometime later this month starting at 269 US dollars (approximately 18,699 rupees). There's no word if / when the HP Chromebook 14 will go on sale in India. But if / whenever it does, it's expected to fall under the budget, affordable laptops segment.
The latest AMD-powered HP Chromebook sports a 14-inch non-touch display featuring 1366 x 768 pixels resolution. For 299 US dollars (approximately 20,899 rupees), there's a touchscreen variant with 1920 x 1080 pixels Full HD resolution. Meaning, if you spend 30 US dollars (approximately Rs 2,099) more, you can buy a touchscreen variant.
Inside is AMD A4-9120 dual-core processor, in addition to AMD Radeon R4 or Radeon R5 (depending on your variant) integrated graphics and 32GB eMMc storage. HP Chromebook 14 supports dual-band Wi-Fi and Bluetooth.
Up front is HP TrueVision HD webcam with dual array digital microphones and two Bang & Olufsen speakers. In terms of connectivity, it comes with 2 USB 3.0 ports, 2 USB Type C 3.1 ports, a microSD card reader and a 3.5mm combo jack.
HP Chromebook 14 is claimed to offer up to 9 hours and 15 minutes of battery life with mixed usage. It measures 13.27 x 8.93 x 0.72 inches in dimensions and weighs in at 3.4 lbs. It comes in multiple colour options like Charcoal, Grey Ink and Blue Snow White.
