HP will be integrating some features mainstream consumers have been enjoying these past few years onto its upcoming Chromebook. Namely, the new Chromebook x360 14 will be getting USB Type-C charging and narrow 7.5 mm bezels for improved convenience and portability. Expect a launch in just a couple of weeks for a starting price of $599 USD.

HP will be bringing the trendy narrow-bezel look to its Chromebook lineup later this month. Called the Chromebook x360 14, the 14-inch system will sport the latest Intel 8th gen CPU and it will also be the thinnest HP Chromebook convertible yet at just 16 mm.

Core specifications include:

  • Core i3-8130U w/ integrated UHD Graphics 620
  • 14-inch 1080p IPS touchscreen
  • 8 GB DDR4-2400 RAM (soldered)
  • 64 GB eMMC
  • 2x USB Type-C, USB Type-A, Kensington Lock, MicroSD reader, 3.5 mm audio
  • 12.81 x 8.93 x 0.63 inches
  • 3.7 lbs

The manufacturer is promising premium features for the system without necessarily reaching the same high price point of the costly HP Chromebook G1. The anodized aluminum keyboard deck, WLED backlight, and 7.5 mm narrow bezels should give strong first impressions and more accurate colors than the ocean of cheap Chromebooks already in the market.

HP Chromebook x360 14 pre-orders open today at both Best Buy stores and HP.com for a starting price of $599. Early bird buyers can expect shipments to begin processing by October 21st.

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.
