Chromebooks continue to impress in the price-for-quality department, and the HP 15 Chromebook is no exception. The first 15-inch HP Chromebook (15.6 inches to be exact) comes not only with a full-size keyboard and numeric keypad, but also with a black-light IPS touchscreen and 64GB of base flash storage.
That model starts at $ 449, and you can pay extra for double the storage of eMMC and a faster Intel Core i5 processor, but the company still does not say how much it will cost.
HP says the device starts shipping today from its online store, but the HP Chromebook 15 list still says "coming soon", because any reason That said, the device has some impressive specifications for a machine at its cost, which makes it a viable alternative to a standard full-size notebook that could cost you a little (and a lot) extra for accessing a standard operating system.
Other specifications include 4GB of built-in memory, an integrated Intel HD Graphics 610 GPU and up to 13 hours of battery life. It also comes with a wide-angle front webcam with dual microphones and built-in speakers, courtesy of Bang & Olufsen. The device comes in silver or blue finishes.
The HP Chroembook 15 is another entry for Chrome OS in the range of largest laptops, after Asus' recent entry into the 15-inch Chromebook market last year. Acer and Lenovo also manufacture 15-inch models.
