HP Chromebook x2 Gets New Version, Specced Like the Microsoft Surface Go

By James A.

Microsoft’s recently launched Surface Go seems to have been inspirational for other companies, like HP, who is making a new version of the HP CheromBook x2. The machine will still have Chrome OS on board and a CPU and hardware setup similar to the Surface Go.

The info comes courtesy of a leaked HP technical document, that shows a branch of the Chromebook x2, which was the first detachable Chromebook. The original Chromebook x2 had 4 GB of RAM, 32 GB of storage and a 12.3 inch screen with a 2400 x 1600 pixel resolution. It had a pretty big $600 price tag, which is a bit higher than the Surface Go.

That one goes with a 10 inch 1800 x 1200 pixel screen, 4 GB of RAM and 64 GB of storage. It’s priced at $400, but you also have to spend $99 for the Surface Pen and $99 for the Surface Type Cover. The main novelty is the CPU, an Intel Pentium “Gold” 4415Y, that was believed to be a Surface Go exclusive. Turns out that HP will also adopt it on the new Chrome OS detachable.

The folks of Tabletmonkeys have come up with a specs list that includes an Intel Core i5-7Y54 CPU version and an Intel Pentium 4415Y version, which is the same as the Surface Go. You can also go up to 8 GB of RAM and B&O Play dual speakers. HP’s main appeal is the extra 2 inches of screen and with a bit of luck, the price will become more decent.
