New Chromebook on Sale For $279

Google and HP project


HP and Google want the world to take a break from tablets for a little bit. The two companies have joined forces to announce the latest laptop based on Google's web-browser based Chrome OS—the HP Chromebook 11.

You can think of the Chromebook 11 as netbook (remember those?) with a nicer hardware design and specifications. The 2.3-pound laptop, which will be available starting today at various retailers for $279, has an 11.6-inch, IPS 1366 x 768-resolution display and a comfortable chiclet keyboard and a shiny white design.
