Upcoming HP Elite c1030 Chromebook will be like the Google PixelBook but probably better
Aside from Google and their PixelBook series, very few OEMs offer high-end Chromebooks as most focus on sub $500 models running on Celeron or Pentium CPUs. HP attempted to market a high-end Chromebook back in 2016, but that particular model never had any direct successors.
Nonetheless, Chromebooks have only gotten more popular over the years signaling HP to take another stab at a flagship Chromebook model. The 13.5-inch HP Elite c1030 convertible will be just that with its uncommon 3:2 aspect ratio and core specifications seemingly lifted straight out of an HP EliteBook 1030. The system will sport a 10th gen Comet Lake-U CPU ranging from the Core i3 to Core i7 with up to 16 GB of DDR4 RAM, 256 GB PCIe SSD, Wi-Fi 6 connectivity, optional Sure View privacy filter, backlit keyboard, and optional 4G LTE Cat. 9 connectivity via SIM card.
The Elite c1030 will compete against the 13.3-inch Samsung Galaxy Chromebook which offers an integrated active pen holder and a 4K AMOLED display — features missing on the HP model.
