Hewlett-Packard Company (NYSE:HPQ) Is Back With Intel

Hewlett-Packard Company (NYSE:HPQ) is going back to putting Intel Corporation (NASDAQ:INTC) chips inside its newer Chromebook 14 laptop. That move takes away business from Nvidia Corporation (NASDAQ:NVDA) whose chips HPQ has used in the past year to power previous Chromebook 14 laptops. HPQ’s new Chromebook 14 devices will be available in different flavors at different costs in the coming weeks.

After dedicating the Chromebook 14 processor socket to Nvidia for about one year, Hewlett-Packard Company (NYSE:HPQ) feels it is time to move on. The company has selected Intel’s Celeron processor to sit inside the new HP Chromebook 14, which is expected out in the next few weeks. It is said that Intel Celeron renders fair processing power in machines that run Alphabet Inc (NASDAQ:GOOGL)’s ChromeOS platform.

Recapturing the Chromebook 14 socket

Although Intel’s recapturing of the processor socket in Chromebook 14 may not make heads spin, the move could trigger a favorable halo effect for the chipmaker. Intel’s efforts to expand its footprint in the mobile space seems to have yielded little if anything. However, the return of a once lost customer could get some other defectors thinking about returning home for Intel inside their products. Such a development could possibly lift Intel’s fortunes in mobile as well.
