The latest 11.6-inch Chromebook models from HP get a more rugged feel with rubber trims, Gorilla Glass and spill-resistant keyboards. In order to keep the prices at an affordable level for students, HP included Intel's Celeron N4000 / 4100 CPUs, up to 8 GB LPDDR4-2400 RAM and up to 64 GB eMMC storage.

Chromebooks are getting quite the attention these days, with major OEMs showcasing quite a few convertibles at CES 2019. Due to their low price point, these devices are ideal for high-school and college students, and some OEMs like HP even have dedicated lineups for the education market. This year’s Chromebook Education Edition from HP will get updated with the 11 G7 EE and x360 11 G2 EE models powered by Intel’s Gemini Lake ULV CPUs.

The latest Chromebook models from HP are designed for classroom use, so they include rugged-like features such as rubber trims for shock absorption, Corning Gorilla Glass for increased screen protection and spill-resistant keyboards. While the 11 G7 EE is an entry-level model, the 11 x360 G2 EE gets a convertible form-factor and a few more advanced features like a touchscreen display that supports Wacom’s EMR digital pens, as well as a 5 MP rear cam in addition to the 720p front cam. Here is a list with the standard features found on both models:
•    11.6-inch display with 1366 x 768 resolution
•    Dual-core Intel Celeron N4000 or quad-core Celeron N4100 CPUs
•    Up to 8 GB of LPDDR4-2400 RAM
•    16 to 64 GB of eMMC 5.0 storage
•    2x USB-C for charging and data (no fast charging) + 1x USB-A
•    microSD card reader
•    stereo speakers + headphone jack
•    WiFi + Bluetooth 5.0
•    47.36 Wh battery
•    45W USB-C adapter

Both models are expected to launch in April and MSRPs for all configurations will be announced by launch date.

I stepped into the wonderous IT&C world when I was around 7. I was instantly fascinated by computerized graphics, be them from games or 3D applications like 3D Max. I like to keep myself up to date with all the new technologies that get released at an ever increasing rate these days. I'm also an avid SciFi reader, an astrophysics aficionado and, as of late, a crypto geek.
