Chromebooks are today a very real alternative to Windows and macOS computers. This week we have seen several launches with the mind set on video games and models such as the ASUS Chromebook Vibe CX55 Flip show the increase in level of this series of equipment.

HP was one of the first manufacturers to market solutions for the Google platform on PCs. A few months ago it reinforced its commitment to the educational segment with several Chromebooks included in the Fortis series and now announces two new launches for the consumer entry range for complete offer on HP Chromebooks.

The convertible version stands out for its 13.3-inch multitouch screen, FHD resolution and a hinge system that allows you to place the screen on the keyboard to facilitate various modes of use, from laptop to tablet.

It uses a MediaTek Kompanio eight-core processor and its autonomy rises to 14 hours. With the connectivity of the previous one, it has also been built with sustainable materials such as post-consumer recycled plastic, ocean-based plastic and 50% recycled aluminum. It has EPEAT Gold and ENERY STAR certifications and its packaging is made of 100% recyclable and sustainable materials. No price has been provided, but like the laptop it should be quite cheap considering its entry-level level.

Both devices pre-install the latest version of Chrome OS and can access the platform’s own applications and also all Android applications by installing the Google Play Store client.
