HP Chromebook 13 Now Available

The new HP Chromebook 13 is quite exciting. It may not come to Singapore soon, so you would have to explore other means of purchasing it from the US. Features include a similar to Apple Macbook build compatibility. Dimensions are similar too at 0.5 inches thin, and 2.8 lbs or 1.27 kg. It also comes with a Core M level processor, 13.3″ FHD IPS, (and a 3200 x 1800 option!), 4GB of RAM, 32GB of storage.

For anyone who uses a browser and web apps for the majority of their work, the base US$499 configuration should be plenty. The main draw would be the good looks. It has very similar dimensions to the 13-inch MacBook Air. Port connectivity is also decent, with two USB-C, one full-size USB, and an audio jack. There’s also a MicroSD slot. HP and Google are claiming the laptop gets 11 hours of juice per charge.
