HP Releases Business, Education Chromebooks

HP and Google extended their partnership this week with the launch of two new low-priced Chromebook laptops targeted at the business and education market. The HP Chromebook 14, which will be available in commercial channels, has an entry-level price of $299 and is targeted at business users looking for "simple, secure, mobile productivity," according to HP.

"What's exciting about the HP Chromebook is they are still building a device that is unique to them," said Paul Shiff, vice president of Hub Technical Services. "They are putting their own stamp on it."

The second Chromebook is ARM processor-based priced starting at $279.99, with an 11.6-inch diagonal screen and battery life of up to six hours.
