HP launches its first Chromebook, the Pavilion 14
HP is the latest manufacturer to enter into the world of affordable Chromebooks with the Pavilion 14. The laptop features a 14-inch display with HP BrightView tech. What does this mean? Basically, that the screen is easier to read and brighter than most, while being less reflective in bright light.
The HP Pavilion 14 will cost £249 and ship with the usual Google Chromebook tech, such as the Chrome Web Store and all the Gmail and Google Drive integration you would ever need. It uses an Intel Celeron processor and comes with a 16GB SSD. The whole package weighs just 1.8Kg.
The £249 price tag is compares favourably to Google's own Chromebook pixel, which boasts an incredible 2560 x 1700 resolution display and a price of £1,049. Chromebooks run on Google's Chrome OS, which is basically an operating system based around a web browser, where pretty much everything is done while connected to the internet.
