HP ships 14-inch Chromebook

Tools

Amidst persistent rumors over the last month, Hewlett-Packard (NYSE: HPQ) on Monday officially joined the ranks of computer makers such as Samsung, Acer and Lenovo in offering Chromebook laptops.

The Pavilion Chromebook comes with a large, 14-inch (1366 x 768) display, 16GB of built-in flash storage and is powered by an Intel (NASDAQ: INTC) Celeron processor.

Aside from its large screen--which no doubt contributes to its hefty 3.96 pound (1.8kg) weight, the Pavilion Chromebook comes with similar specifications as other Chromebooks. Specifications include a 720p camera, Wi-Fi connectivity, three USB 2.0 ports, wired Ethernet, a HDMI port and an SD card slot.

Some reports have set its battery life at just 4.25 hours though, which is less than the 6 hours cited by rival devices from Samsung and Lenovo.

As with other Chrome OS devices, the Pavilion Chromebook will come with 100GB of free Google (NASDAQ: GOOG) Drive storage for two years, and boots up in less than 10 seconds. The Pavilion Chromebook is currently on sale for $329.99.
