The popularity of Chromebooks is not quite what Google might have envisioned during the first year of sales, although over the last few months and especially in the holiday shopping period things have picked up.
Now we are seeing Acer and Samsung meeting competition from HP and Lenovo, which has helped increase popularity. Thanks to the price, design, and specs of current models on offer being more desirable it seems that we are seeing growth in this sector of notebooks.
We knew HP had been planning on entering the Chromebook business thanks to some teases a few days ago, although today they delivered with the HP Pavilion 14-c010us Chromebook with a debatable price of under $330.
This Chromebook is a bit bigger than the regular 11 to 12-inch models we have seen releasing, and instead brings a 14-inch display for more real estate. This is one of its selling points as a Chromebook when compared to others on the market, and of course HP back this with their better-than-most design.
The HP Pavilion Chrome OS notebook features a list of specs we’d expect for the price, which includes an Intel Celeron 847 1.1GHz processor, Intel HD graphics, 2GB DDR3 memory, up to 4 hours and 15 minutes of battery life, Bluetooth, standard a/b/g/n Wi-Fi, 16GB SSD, and a range of ports including 3 USB and HDMI.
