HP announces availability for its first Chrome OS laptop, The HP Pavilion 14 Chromebook. HP joins the Chrome OS party with Samsung and Acer already shipping and Lenovo releasing one for schools. The Pavilion 14 contains a 1.1Ghz Intel Celeron 847 with integrated HD Graphics, 2GB of RAM (upgradeable to 4GB), 16GB SSD Hard drive, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, 3 USB 2.0; 1 HDMI; 1 RJ45; 1 headphone-out/microphone-in combo and HP TrueVision HD Webcam with a battery life of 4 hours and 15 minutes. Now you might be thinking the hard drive might be a little, if not a lot, small then other laptops but here’s the thing: Chrome OS is more of a Cloud-based operating system. Chrome OS is used for the Web where your word docs (Google Drive) and music (Google Play Music) will stored in the Cloud and don’t have to waste a lot of physical memory. Which is actually cool because when you purchase a Chromebook, you get 100GB of Google Drive for two years free.
The HP Pavilion 14 Chromebook is only available on HPDirect.com for $329.99
