HP Chromebook x360 14 unveiled with premium convertible design

HP has launched a new premium laptop running Google’s Chrome OS, the new HP Chromebook x360 14. This model boasts convertible functionality, what HP calls a premium design, and durability thanks in part to a protective, decorative coating. Unlike many Chromebooks, the Chromebook x360 has a fairly large display at 14-inches, and it also packs 8th-generation Intel Core processors. The HP Chromebook x360 14 features a 14-inch Full HD IPS display with a WLED backlight, multitouch support, and an edge-to-edge design. Buyers have a couple processor options, the 8th-generation Intel Core i3 and i5, these joined by 64GB eMMC internal storage and 8GB of RAM.The Chromebook can be used with Skype and similar video chatting software thanks to a built-in HP Wide Vision HD webcam with dual-array digital microphones. A 360-degree hinge makes the Chromebook x360 a “convertible” model, enabling the screen to be rotated back into one of four different modes.The chassis is metal and covered with what HP calls a “ceramic-like” finish, the result being something that feels like ceramic but maintains a higher level of durability. Connectivity is pretty standard with Bluetooth 4.2 and 802.11b/g/n/ac WiFi. Other features include battery life lasting up to 13 hours and 30 minutes per charge, a “barely visible bezel,” and B&O PLAY audio alongside dual speakers.The HP Chromebook x360 14 is now available to preorder from HP.com and BestBuy.com for $599 USD; the device should be available to purchase in Best Buy stores, as well, starting on October 21.
