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.
The new version of Chromebook 14 is expected to be fanless and quiet just like the previous model. It will set you back at least $250 to get hold of the base level new Chromebook 14 laptop.
The base price of $250 will earn you a device with resolution of 1366 x 768 pixels. However, if you are looking for more crisp display, the $280 Chromebook 14 model renders resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels. The larger version of Chromebook 14 measures 17.8 millimeters thick and weighs 3.94 pounds.
The two latest HP Chromebook 14 models feature FullHD capabilities.
Hewlett-Packard Company (NYSE:HPQ) says that its new Chromebook 14 laptops are capable of delivering up to 9 hours and 15 minutes of run-time with a single charge.
Those who purchase Hewlett-Packard Company (NYSE:HPQ)’s new Chromebook 14 laptops will benefit from 100GB of free storage on Google Drive for two years from Alphabet. There is also a free three month subscription to Google Play Music.
