HP Pavilion Chromebook slated for 17 February release

Looking to take on Acer and Samsung, HP is set to introduce a Pavilion-branded Chromebook in the near future. 

First spotted by Slashgear, a leak from HP's website (now pulled) detailed everything we need to know about the Series 3 and C7 competitor. 

HP's Chromebook will feature a 14-inch display with 1366 x 768 resolution, an SSD, 1.1GHz Intel Celeron Processor 847, 2GB of DDR3 SDRAM, 3 USB 2.0 ports, an HDMI out, Ethernet, and headphone/microphone combo port. Battery life is said to reach 4 hours and 15 minutes.

The machine will be 0.83 inches thick, 13.66 inches wide, and 9.37 inches deep, bringing the machine's weight overall to 3.96lb (1.8 kg). 

Compared to Samsung's Series 3 Chromebook, HP's take features a larger screen than the 11.6-inch Samsung includes, but not as fast of a processor. 

While nothing is official, HP detailed the device landing on 17 February, just in time for Mobile World Congress 2013 in Barcelona at the end of the month. We expect to get plenty of hands-on time at the trade show to give you a true comparison.
