Google announce new HP Chromebook for Education
Armed with the ambition of transforming and powering global classrooms into the future, Google has announced the launch of a new HP made Chromebook for education. Announced in a post celebrating the success of Chrome OS in Swedish schools, the HP Chromebook x360 11 G1 Education Edition will go on sale in mid-April and as expected runs the latest Chrome OS version.
The full list of specs is not stated in the release, however, the HP Chromebook x360 11 G1 Education Edition features USB-C charging, world facing camera, optional stylus and a rugged 360 degree convertible form factor for handling versatile modes, providing flexibility between work and fun.
Judging by the name and build, there are chances that the new Chrome OS laptop is modelled after the existing HP ProBook x360 11 G1 Education Edition running Windows 10 OS Pro. While there is no official confirmation for this, we could be dealing with the same device with different OS.
The HP ProBook x360 11 G1 Education Edition is available in two models – an Intel Celeron N3350 processor one or the Intel Pentium N4200. Both options have up to 8GB RAM, 64/128GB built-in storage, 1366 x 768 pixels LED panel, 2x USB 3.1 ports, USB Type-C Port, dual speakers and microphones.
