Leaked HP Document Reveals Its Upcoming Chromebook

Is this the beginning of a major trend?

It looks like things are about to get wild and crazy out there as yet another OEM is joining the Chromebook family.

According to a recently discovered PDF document, HP will be releasing a Pavilion Chromebook featuring a mind blowing, 1.1 GHz Celeron CPU, 2GB of RAM, 16 GB SSD and a 14 inch display with a resolution of 1366 x 768. As noted by TheVerge, this is the first Chromebook that does not utilize the 11.6 inch screen.

If you are wondering about the battery life, the leaked document states “up to 4 hours and 15 minutes”. Not exactly something to get excited about. We expect to see official announcement in the coming weeks as the “ad embargo date’ is set to 2/17/2013.

Who’s buying one?

    “As noted by TheVerge, this is the first Chromebook that does not utilize the 11.6 inch screen.”

    Actually, the original Samsung Series 5 ones had 12.1 inch screens.

    Yes. Windows 8 has ensured I won’t be replacing my laptop with a PC, Win7 is the end of the line.

    The Chromebook I tried was REALLY impressive and put to rest my concerns.

    When I think about all the natural and human resources wasted in the creation of this product, it makes me sad. This is likely the final year for Chromebooks.

      Acer report 5-10% of their sales in US attributed to Chromebooks….

      That is good enough that they want to expand into new markets.

      Also do note that OEM’s supported Win8 (and to smaller extend WinRT) out of hope of financial gain.

      If Wintel offerings can be expected to be stagnating for a while, than new markets are way to gain more sales.

      Win8 could brought new users wanting new HW for their new OS.

      Chromebooks can brought new users wanting something completely new. (And they are soo cheap..)
