HP announces new Chromebooks designed for education

Not too thin, and not too thick, at under 19 mm, the HP Chromebook 11 G6 and Chromebook 14 G5 start at 2.27 and 3.39 pounds respectively, which are fairly decent numbers for (semi) rugged machines created to survive kids as young as six.

Compared to the previous Chromebook 11 series from the house of Acer, the new Chromebook will be more portable and compact. It is a budget-friendly Chromebook and comes with USB Type-C charging.

Interestingly, the new Chromebook 11 is an Android App-Ready Chromebook.

It comes with an HDR webcam for video calling and has dual stereo speakers with an integrated microphone. "The model numbers for these new devices are CB311-8HT and CB311-8H and they both offer up an 11.6" display. It has two USB 3.0 ports and two USB 3.1 Type-C ports.

But Newton, Carolina's leading rusher this season, didn't run much in two losses to New Orleans, gaining 67 yards on nine carries. Lost in how poorly the Panthers offense played at Atlanta was the absence of Jonathan Stewart, who sat out with back tightness.

The HP Chromebook 11 G6 EE is quite similar to the Acer Chromebook 11 in terms of the specifications - It will feature a 11.6-inch screen with 1366x768p resolution with both touch and non-touch version on sale. Hence, all most all Android apps are supported by this compact form of laptop.

But if you wish, you're free to upgrade to a Full HD touch-capable display on the 14-inch version, naturally by coughing up a little more dough than however much HP plans to charge to start with. Customers can stay connected to their network with fast and reliable 2×2 MIMO 802.11ac Wi-Fi wireless connectivity.

HP's last Chromebox was a hit in the Chrome OS community, but it released in 2014 and a lot has changed since then. You'll get 4GB of RAM - about minimum for Chrome OS in our opinion - and an option for either 32GB or 64GB of on-board storage, with a microSD Card reader included as well. The new Chromebook 11 is going to be debuted at CES 2018 event in Las Vegas, and after that, the sales will begin in March with the base price set at $249.
