HP has updated its premium 14-inch Chromebook x360 14c model with Intel’s latest 11th generation silicon. There are also a few other tweaks to its winning formula, but it also goes seemingly goes backwards in the battery life department oddly enough.

Chromebooks are continuing to enjoy a resurgence with the work-from-home (WFH) phenomenon boosting sales of a number of consumer technology products. While most are today’s equivalent of the former netbook category with relatively cheap build quality and middling specifications, there are some premium offerings to be had among them. One of these is the HP Chromebook x360 14c which is the third of three models in the premium HP Chromebook range and the one best equipped.

HP has seen fit to give the Chromebook x360 14c a spec bump in a couple of key areas including the addition of new 11th generation Intel silicon. There is a new dual-core Core i3-1115G4 option and a quad-core Core i5-1135G7 option with the former sufficient for most people while the latter is targeted at a select market looking for a high-powered Chromebook. Both chips come from Intel’s Tiger Lake-U family launched in September last year and which feature its Willow Cove cores.

Also getting an upgrade is the 14-inch 1080p touchscreen display, which is now coated in Gorilla Glass 5 which should help minimize scratches or marks on the screen. Oddly, however, the battery life seems to have taken a backwards step with HP claiming 10.5 hours for the new model -- the previous model was rated for 13.5 hours. Nonetheless, the HP Chromebook x360 14c remains a strong proposition for those looking for a premium Chromebook with the latest silicon and a versatile design.

HP says the new computer will be available at Best Buy and through website shortly. The Core i3 model with 8 GB of RAM and 128GB of storage starts from US$650.

Buy the superseded Intel 10th generation Core i3 HP Chromebook x360 14c from Amazon for the reduced price of US$465.

I have been writing about consumer technology over the past ten years, previously with the former MacNN and Electronista, and now Notebookcheck since 2017. My first computer was an Apple ][c and this sparked a passion for Apple, but also technology in general. In the past decade, I’ve become increasingly platform agnostic and love to get my hands on and explore as much technology as I can get my hand on. Whether it is Windows, Mac, iOS, Android, Linux, Nintendo, Xbox, or PlayStation, each has plenty to offer and has given me great joy exploring them all. I was drawn to writing about tech because I love learning about the latest devices and also sharing whatever insights my experience can bring to the site and its readership.
