Chromebooks continue to print in the price-quality range, and the HP Chromebook 15 is no exception. The first-ever 15-inch (15.6-inch) HP Chromebook comes with a full-size keyboard, a numeric keypad, a black IPS touch screen, and 64GB of basic flash memory.
This model starts at $ 449, and you can pay extra to double eMMC storage and a faster Intel Core i5 processor, but the company does not say how much it will cost yet.
HP indicates that the device is starting to ship from its online store, but the list for the HP Chromebook 15 always says "coming", for whatever reason. That said, this device has impressive features for its cost, making it a viable alternative to a standard-sized standard laptop that may cost you a bit more money to access a standard operating system.
Other specifications include 4GB of onboard memory, a built-in Intel HD Graphics 610 graphics processor and up to 13 hours of battery life. You also have a wide angle front facing webcam with two microphones and built-in speakers provided by Bang & Olufsen. The device is available in silver or blue finishes.
The HP Chroembook 15 is another entry for Chrome OS in the larger notebook lineup after Asus recent entry into the 15-inch Chromebook market last year. Acer and Lenovo also manufacture 15-inch models.
