Last month, Intel unveiled a bevy of new ultraportable Chromebooks which included a 14-inch HP Chromebook 14. It seems, however, that it wasn’t the only Chromebook offering that HP had planned and now we’re seeing what appears to be the an HP Chromebook 11.
The name came up in a leaked document that listed HP’s Energy Star Qualification list. This sighting has been backed up by reports of an empty support page on HP’s website that points to the rumored device. And finally, the fact is almost all but confirmed by a Best Buy product page that names the HP Chromebook 11 with a model number A13. Unfortunately, the listing does not include an image of the device, though it will probably look similar to the Chromebook 14 albeit in a smaller package.
The Best Buy page gives more details about the Chromebook. As the name suggests, it sports an 11.6″ HD display and weighs only 2.42 lbs. It is also noted to sport Beats Audio and an HP TrueVision HD webcam. In comparison, the Chromebook 14 has a 14-inch WLED BrightView display at 1366×768 pixel resolution and weighs almost twice at 4.07 lbs. It seems that both will be offered with 100 GB of cloud storage from Google Drive, free for two years.
Other specs of the Chromebook 11 are still unknown at this point but it would probably be close, if not similar, to the Chromebook 14, especially the Intel Haswell CPU which is one of the selling points of the new batch of Chromebooks. Pricing and availability are also still unknown.
