HP has put a document online describing a high-end Chromebook with a 13.3″ screen and a resolution of 3200×1800 pixels. The laptop consists of an aluminum housing with a thickness of 12.9 mm and two USB-C ports.
HP’s new laptop with Chrome OS will be called Chromebook 13 G1. The company, according to the document, focuses on business use and does not call the model a Chromebook “for children.” The 13 G1 will have a fanless aluminum housing with a thickness of 12.9 mm and a weight of 1.38 kilos.
HP will offer two display options: a matte display with a resolution of 1920×1080 pixels and maximum brightness of 330cd/m2, and a mirror version with a 3200×1800 pixel resolution and screen brightness of 300cd/m2. By default, the laptop contains 4GB lpddr3-1866 memory, but it also appears with 8GB and 16GB. There is 32GB emmc v5 storage memory. The Chromebook 13 G1 can come with the Pentium 4405Y, Core m3-6Y30, m5-6Y57 and m7-6Y75, all with the HD Graphics 515 GPU.
The network card is Intel’s 2×2-AC 7265 which supports 802.11ac and bluetooth 4.2. The keyboard is backlit and a RPM 1.2 module is provided for security options. The battery capacity is 45Whr, the two speakers are from B&O and there is a memory card reader. Finally, the laptop is equipped with a USB-A 3.1 interface and two USB-C ports, the latter of which can be used to power the system.
When HP will officially announce the Chromebook and what it will cost is not known. The model is reminiscent of Google’s Pixel itself. This high-end Chromebook had a price of more than 1000 euros.
