HP Jumps into Chromebook Market
Hewlett-Packard has announced its first entry into the expanding Chromebook market, the Pavilion Chromebook. Powered by the Internet focused Chrome OS from Google, this device offers a number of similar features to competitors in the market. The HP Chromebook is powered by an Intel Celeron CPU, 16GB of flash storage, and Wi-Fi. The main areas of difference are a mix of good and bad. A 14" screen is the largest on a Chromebook, but the 4.25 hours of battery life put it at the bottom of the pile. The Pavilion Chromebook comes with two years of 100GB Google Drive Cloud Storage and will retail for $330.
