HP Shows Off First 15-inch Chromebook for only $449

Larger, Sleek and Affordable

HP has unveiled their first 15-inch Chromebook laptop and it is surprisingly feature packed. Although the good news is that HP is keeping the price low, with this version starting at just $449 USD. Which allows them to compete with ASUS, Lenovo and Acer, who have previously launched their 15-inch Chromebooks already. Of all three, only Acer has a similar unit with a physical numpad like HP’s.

The base model comes with an Intel Pentium Gold 4417U CPU and 4GB of DDR4 SDRAM. It uses 64GB of eMMC storage and has a 15.6-inch 1080p IPS touchscreen.

    Ugh, why the obsession with numberpads on laptops, I simply don’t get it.

    Off-centre keyboards, off-centre trackpads, and sub-par audio solutions because the keyboard occupies a good speaker location.
