HP has announced a new all-in-one desktop with ChromeOS. The HP Chromebase has a 21.5 “screen that can be rotated to portrait mode. The Chromebase will cost around $600.
HP will announce the Chromebase on Tuesday, which stands out because of the rotatable screen and the fact that the computer is hidden in the foot of the screen. The pylon-shaped textile foot is also the speaker of the computer. HP has equipped the Chromebase with a 5W speaker from Bang and Olufsen.
The screen is an IPS panel and supports a resolution of 1920×1080 pixels. The screen can be rotated 20 degrees vertically and 90 degrees horizontally to place the screen in the vertical position. The Chromebase is equipped with an Intel Core i3-10110U Comet Lake processor. The computer also has 16GB of RAM and a 256GB PCIe NVMe SSD.
The all-in-one desktop has been announced for the US and will be available there later this month starting at $600. It is not known whether there will also be a release in Europe.
In addition to the Chromebase, HP announced another all-in-one device: the HP Chromebook x2 11. The Chromebook is a hybrid device and can be used as a laptop as well as a tablet. The laptop has an 11″ touchscreen that can be detached from the supplied keyboard. The screen has a resolution of 2160×1440 pixels.
The Chromebook x2 11 is equipped with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 7c processor. The battery should last 11 hours. The device is available in two versions, with 64GB or 128GB of storage. The HP Wireless Pen can be used with the Chromebook, but must be purchased separately. This HP machine has also only been announced for the US for the time being.
