HP has launched a new set of Chromebooks aimed at business users. With 14inch FullHD displays and spacious keyboards, these devices are for those who do their work primarily on the cloud with a need for Linux and Android apps to make up the deficit.
The first up is the HP Chromebook Enterprise X360 14E G1. It’s a made for business remix of the HP Chromebook X360 and comes with a silver finish as opposed to a ceramic one.
The specs (as per ChromeUnboxed) are as follows:
- Chrome OS with Chrome Enterprise Upgrade
- Intel Pentium 4415U, Pentium 4417U, Core i3-8130, Core i5-8350U or Core i7-8650U
- Up to 16GB DDR4 RAM
- 32GB or 64GB storage
- 14? FHD IPS touch display @ 250 nits
- 2 x USB-C, 1 x USB 3.1, MicroSD and 3.5mm audio
- full-size backlit keyboard
- 720p HD camera
- 2-in-1 form-factor
- Android and Linux apps available if enabled via Admin
HP also launched yet another 14-inch Chromebook with the Chromebook Enterprise 14A G5. The specs are broadly speaking the same as the X360, albeit with some differences. There’s no 2-in-1 capability, so you’re stuck with a plain old laptop. It doesn’t come with an Intel processor, being equipped with an AMD A4 or A6 processor. the storage ranges all the way from an anaemic 16GB to a more useful 64GB, and the RAM tops out at 8GB.
Both devices are targeted for launch sometime in late October.
