After rumors circulated, Hewlett-Packard confirmed on Monday that it now manufactures its own Chromebook, reports PC World.
The new H-P notebook, the Chromebook 14, features a 14-inch screen, a 1.1GHz Intel Celeron processor, a 16-GB solid-state drive, 2GB RAM, and 802.11a/b/g/n Wi-Fi. For ports, the device offers 3 x USB 2.0, HDMI, Ethernet, headphone/microphone combo jack, and a media card reader.
H-P is promising a paltry 4 hours and 15 minutes for battery life, and the laptop is also a little heavy at just under four pounds, and measures 0.83 inches thick. The Chromebook 14 is available now from HP and sells for $330, but you also get 100GB of free Google Drive storage for two years--usually an extra $120.
