HP and Google team up for Chromebook 11
The latest Chromebook looks like a winner. HP and Google worked together and came up with a super-bright IPS display, an ultra-portable weight of just 2.3 lbs, and a price point under $300. That last bit is especially interesting given that this new unit was based off of the very expensive Pixel. The rest of the specs, while not groundbreaking, look solid. You can see all the details at the official sites from HP and Google.
Oddly enough, the thing I am most excited about is the charger. Finally… someone did the most logical of things. The Chromebook used the same Micros USB charger as the majority of Android phones. Chances are, unless you are an iPhone user, you already have these scattered around your world. One at home, one at work, one in the car… One less dongle to wrangle is always a plus.
