A few weeks into 2013, it appears Google is turning the heat up on its Chrome OS platform with Lenovo releasing their first Chromebook last week. It now appears HP is set to do the same with its first Chromebook.
The leaked spec sheet discovered on HP’s website shows the HP Pavilion Chromebook 14-c010us, a new 14-inch Chromebook.
The device will feature a Intel Celeron 1.1GHz CPU, 2GB RAM and a 16GB SSD. While HP’s Chromebook has the largest display we have seen on any Chromebook, its resolution is still 1366×768.
The device will also feature WiFi N, Bluetooth, Ethernet, Muilt-Card reader, HD Webcam, 3 USB ports and a HDMI port. It’s disappointing to see that the battery life is around 4 hours, which is considerably less than Samsung’s 7 hour Chromebook.
Update! HP has released a statement informing us that the HP Chromebook will be released on 17th February. No news on pricing or regional availability.
