HP launches Chromebook 11 G4 for Education
Chromebooks are quite popular in the classroom and the new HP Chromebook 11 G4 Education Edition is the latest such portable to be unveiled. HP announced its launch yesterday, advertising it as "a durable, lightweight Chromebook designed to meet the needs of students and educators."
The base specs of this machine include an Intel Celeron N2840 processor, 2 GB RAM, 16 GB internal storage, 11.6-inch display with 1,366X768 pixels, WiFi 802.11 ac, Bluetooth 4.0, USB 3.0 and USB 2.0 (one of each), as well as an SDXC card reader and a webcam. The 36 Whr battery provides up to 9.5 hours of autonomy. Optional specs include an IPS display, 4G LTE connectivity, as well as 4 GB RAM and 32 GB internal storage.
HP Chromebook 11 G4 EE has a fanless design and, at less than 0.8 inches, is also the thinnest Chromebook for Education that can pass MIL-STD testing. Next to its resistance to shocks and drops, this Chrome OS-driven machine also features a spill-resistant keyboard. It should go on sale in the United States later this month, starting at $199 USD.
