HP announces Chromebook 11 G6 and 14 G5 w/ latest Intel chips, USB-C ahead of CES 2018

HP Chromebook 11 G6                        HP Chromebook 14 G5

At CES 2018 next week, HP is launching two new Chromebooks that cater to the education and enterprise markets. The Chromebook 11 G6 and 14 G5 share a similar design and jump to 7th generation Intel Celeron chipsets and add USB-C ports.

In terms of design, the 11.6-inch Chromebook sees the biggest change with ports — including USB-C and USB-A — no longer directly located to the sides of the palm rests. Instead, like the 14-inch model, they are grouped together in the conventional upper-corners.

Both units jump to 7th generation Intel Celeron N processors. The dual-core N3350 is slightly more power efficient, while N3450 brings quad-core performance with RAM configurable up to 8GB. Storage is up to 64GB and there are slightly improved Intel HD Graphics 500.

Unfortunately, the Chromebook 11 and 14 start at 1366×768 resolution displays, though they can be upgraded to a touchscreen HD IPS panel with a 180-degree hinge.  These Chromebooks will hit retail in February 2018, no prices have been released at this time.
