The slim profile also contributes to a highly portable machine and the HP Chromebook 14 G3 comes with a chiclet style keyboard with good typing ergonomics.

Running on Google Chrome OS, the device sports an Nvidia Tegra K1 CD570M-A1 processor clocked at 2.1 GHz, 4 GB DDR3L SDRAM, a NVIDIA Kepler GPU and a 16 GB SSD for internal storage.
