Presented and shown at IFA 2014, the new Chromebook 14 inch HP is now in pre-European and American. His full name is HP Chromebook 14 G3 (the 3rd Chrome OS laptop the company to use this format) and matches the platform Nvidia Tegra K1 in different configurations. List prices start from $ 299 and arrive at the base of $ 429 top-of-range touchscreen.
In the USA, we have:
2GB RAM + 16GB SSD: $ 299
4GB RAM + 16GB SSD: $ 329
4GB RAM + 32GB SSD: $ 350
4GB RAM + 16GB SSD + FHD Touch: $ 429
All rooms have WiFi Ac, Bluetooth 4.0, HDMI, 2x USB 2.0 and 1x USB 3.0, microSD reader and 720p front camera, on a frame fanless 1720 grams 17 mm thick. The battery is a 37 Wh per 10 hours. The display on the base model is a TN 14.1 inches with a resolution of 1366 x 768 pixels, while the top there is a configuration EPD 1080p panel with capacitive touchscreen.
HP offers a variety of colors, with particular combinations and contrasts between inside and outside. Chromebook 14 G3 is lighter, thinner and quiet (completely silent) in the previous 14 HP Chromebook with Celeron CPU Haswell, but also less powerful in pure calculation. Tegra K1 is already present in 13 of Acer Chromebook and it must be said that until now did not surprise in terms of performance and responsiveness: the GPU is much better than the integrated Intel, but the level of the Celeron CPU touches the Bay Trail.
We have seen this model at IFA 2014 (under our hands-on video) and if one side has surprised us for quality construction and design (the frame is that of HP Slatebook 14) on the other it seemed rather lacking in the display. The availability in Europe and America is planned for the next 2-3 weeks, but we have no news yet on his arrival in Italy. HP has recently brought in our country, the “old” HP Chromebook 11 G2 SoC Exynos Dual, already replaced the United States from one version to Bay Trail.
