HP has launched two new Chromebooks to follow up to its critically acclaimed HP x360 which launched a while ago. These new ones slot into the same family of devices, although they’ll come with a range of sizes and prices to fit your budget.
The first Chromebook is the HP x360 14b. As the name suggests, it brings a 14-inch display that can be outfitted with either 1080p or 720p. The second is the HP x360 12b. It’s pretty much the same as the 14b albeit with a smaller 12-inch screen. inside it, you’ll get 4GB of Ram and 32GB of storage up to 128 GB. These are weak specs if you plan on running heavy Linux apps, but they should do just fine for average users who just want to browse the web and run Play Store apps like Spotify or Messenger in the background.
HP’s adding in support for the Universal Stylus Initiative. This means they can support active styluses from manufacturers other than HP. while HP’s making its own rechargeable USI pen, you’ll have the option to go for others should you prefer to do so.
These new Chromebooks will go on sale later this month, and they’ll start at $359 for the 12b and $379 for the 14b. Though you should expect to shell out a bit more for decently specced versions and the stylus (sold separately.)
