HP Unveil Chromebook Refresh With Universal Stylus
HP has announced a refresh to its Chromebook X360 lineup coming later this month which promises to bring ‘the best of Android and Chrome’ together in one device.
HP is offering its Chromebook x360 12b and 14b for $359 and $279 respectively both with the same Intel Celeron dual-core N4000 processor.
A Pentium processor option is available for both models; however, the Celeron is only one listed on their current specification list.
Included in the price is a one-year subscription to Google One, for online cloud storage.
Both Chromebooks will feature HP’s first integrated Universal Stylus Initiative (USI), which offers compatibility between various digital styluses.
The USI is supported by several companies like Google and Intel to ensure compatibility of styluses across touch-enabled devices.
HP has designed its pen, the HP Rechargeable USI Pen, for a cost of $69.99, which can be attached to the side of the Chromebook via a magnetic dock.
The 12b is a 12-inch display model, with the 14b a 14-inch display, as their names suggest.
Both models come with a 1080p touch display, 4GB of memory and 32GB of eMMC internal storage.
Featuring the same titular 360-degree screen that allows easy conversion from laptop to tablet with just a flip of the screen.
Both models are available in a ceramic white finish; however, the 14b model comes with a white ceramic keyboard, while the 12b has a silver keyboard.
To add to that, the 14b also comes with Bang & Olufsen powered sound for that extra premium quality in audio.
