Tonight we have a great, detailed review from Andrew over at AMDTech on the HP Spectre X360 13.3 in convertible laptop,tablet device!
This is an excellent product with plenty of ports and can be used in a variety of modes such as laptop, tablet, tent mode, presentation mode.
It is available in a variety of configurations that will affect price of course. The device he is testing is running the Intel Core i5 and has the 4K display version. It can also be purchased with a 1080 panel as well.
Just a few days after HP launched some Intel-based Chromebooks, they’re at it again, this time with some AMD-based models. The company introduced two educational products: HP Chromebook 14A G5 EE, coming in April and HP Chromebook 11A G6 EE, coming in February.
The 11A is supposed to be one of the first 11.6 inch Chromebooks with an AMD processor. Inside the Chromebook 11A G6 EE we find an AMD A4-9120C processor, as well as 4 GB of RAM and 32 GB of eMMC 5.0 storage. It’ll come in touch and non touch versions, both of them with a 220 nit display panel and a 1366 x 768 pixel resolution.
There are two USB Type-C ports here, plus two USB 2.0 Type-A ports as well, plus an audio jack. HP included a HD webcam, a spill resilient keyboard and a 47.37 Wh battery. The product weighs about 2.8 pounds and measures 0.7 inches in thickness.
HP Chromebook 14A G5 comes in two flavors: Full HD IP or a 1366 x 768 pixel version. Optionally it has a backlit keyboard. Sadly, this one doesn’t have detailed specs, but it probably sports one of the new low power AMD CPUs. HP also unveiled an AMD Chromebook at CES 2019, a model priced at $269 and packing a 14 inch screen.
HP didn’t have enough with the announcements it did at CES 2019, so it came up with even more products, this time part of the Chromebook series. The company unveiled new Chromebook units with Intel CPUs inside and meant for education. The new models came ahead of the BETT education conference.
One of HP’s new products is the Chromebook x360 11 G2 Education Edition and we also saw debuting the Chromebook 11 G7 Education Edition. The new Chromebooks are resilient and rugged, being MIL-STD-810G certified. The idea is that they’ll be handled roughly by the students and have to take a beating or two. The specs are pretty much the same for both models.
They feature Intel Celeron N4100 CPUs, up to 8 GB of RAM and up to 64 GB of eMMC storage. There’s an 11.6 inch display in the mix, a touch enable panel, with a 1136 x 768 pixel resolution. There’s also USB Type-A connectivity, two USB Type-C ports too and USB 3.1 Gen 1, with support for up to 5 Gbps in data transfer speeds. HP Chromebook 11 G7 EE is pretty similar to the previous Apollo Lake models and it comes with a 180 degree fold flat format.
Bluetooth 5.0 is a welcome upgrade and other specs include a microSD card slot, a pick and spill proof keyboard and some Linux app support. It all weighs 1.33 kilograms. HP Chromebook X360 11 G2 EE also offers an optional digitizer and HP Wacom EMR stylus. This one’s storage starts at 32 GB and the weight is 3.24 pounds.
