As HP's first 15.6-inch Chromebook, the unit carries narrow bezels and many design influences from the smaller 14-inch Chromebook series including dual USB Type-C, Bang & Olufsen audio, 802.11ac, and a premium metal design.

Early Chromebooks were essentially small netbooks with display sizes ranging from 10 inches to 14 inches. It wasn't until recently that Lenovo introduced its 15.6-inch Yoga Chromebook C630 convertible aimed at users or educational institutions who preferred larger displays. Now, HP is ready to ship its own 15.6-inch Chromebook equipped with a number of modern features we've come to expect from standard laptops.

Simply called the HP Chromebook 15, the Chromebook promises a 1080p touchscreen, 4 GB of DDR4-2133 soldered RAM, 64 GB to 128 GB eMMC, MicroSD reader, backlit keyboard, and two USB Type-C ports on either side of the laptop capable of recharging the system. Thus, owners will no longer need to rely on proprietary AC adapters that be easily lost or misplaced.

CPU options range from the Pentium Gold 4417U up to the Core i5-8250U to suggest that the system utilizes an active fan for cooling.

HP will begin shipping the Chromebook 15 soon for a starting price of $449.

After graduating with a B.S. in environmental hydrodynamics from the University of California, I studied reactor physics to become licensed by the U.S. NRC to operate nuclear reactors. There's a striking level of appreciation you gain for everyday consumer electronics after working with modern nuclear reactivity systems astonishingly powered by computers from the 80s. When I'm not managing day-to-day activities and US review articles on Notebookcheck, you can catch me following the eSports scene and the latest gaming news.
