Google and HP Team Up for New Chromebook, Dubbed the HP Pavilion 14

HP Chromebook

We have a new Chromebook to add to the family tree this morning. Teaming with HP, Google announced the HP Pavilion 14, starting at $329.99. The device features a 14″ 1366 x 768 HD display, is powered by a 1.1GHz Intel Celeron 847 processor, offers of 2GB of DDR3 RAM, and gets up to four hours and fifteen minutes of battery life.

If you are into or want to get started with the Chrome OS, you can pick up one of these starting today right from HP’s site.

Buy.

    If you are into or want to get started with Chrome OS, buy the Samsung. This thing is rife with fail.

    I love conspiracy theories!

    Anyone notice how the bottom “dock” of that Chromebook very much resembles the leaked screenshot by Francois Beaufort (minus a few icons)? Even the right side notification tray looks similar..

    I vowed long ago to never buy another HP laptop. Those specs say I made the right decision.

    Less RAM than the 550 unless you add it yourself. But the main downside for me is no 3G.

    i can get a laptop with 4gb of ram and a core i3 for about that price, and thats with a windows license.

      I got a Sammy laptop with 4GB RAM and a decent AMD chip for less than this. I love Chrome OS (have a Cr48), but this attempt is just pathetic.

    1366 x 768 isn’t even HD by phone standards anymore.

  • joejoe5709

    I like that it’s an HP, but for $329, you’re in for some stiff competition. That’s a touch too expensive for a limited capability laptop.

    Still standing by my CR-48

    getting really sick of seeing laptops with 1366 x 768 screens.

  • DroidBricker

    I’ll pick one up at the fire sale in about 6 mos.

    It’s almost like they are trying desperately for this to fail…

  • jak_341

    The Samsung one still would be at the top of my list.

    4 hours? It’s like they aren’t even trying!

    • Daniel Clifford

      And about $100 to high. They really don’t want these things to sell.

      • r0lct

        Keep in mind it’s a larger display. But the battery life is quite sad.

      Right. My Samsung Chromebook lasts for about 9 hours. Sometimes, when unused, it lasts days.

      • vitriolix

        Yup. This is honestly the killer feature of these Samsung Chromebooks. I love it. I took nothign by it on my vacation recently it was so nice to not even think about charging it all day. We’d use it at a cafe to plan our next excursion and just charge it when we got back to the hotel at nice.

        • r0lct

          I wish I could buy one! (for regular retail price)

    • picaso86

      dumb question: Can we install Win8 or 7 on chrome machines?

      • Steve Hawk

        No

      • http://twitter.com/duface2 Nate Bousfield

        no, but you can use the built-in remote desktop app. it’s great and free.

    • Droidzilla

      Yeah, they kind of lost me at Intel. ARM chips seem to really work well for Chromebooks, and offer great battery life to boot. Nice to see another of the big names throw down on Chrome OS, but this is like when Dell went in on Android; pathetic.
