Google and HP have partnered up and released a new Chromebook in the lineup. The HP Chromebook 11 features include an 11.6″ IPS display, Exynos 5250 GAIA CPU, 2 USB 2.0 ports, 6 hours of battery life, and weighs only 2.3 lbs. A nice new feature is that it will use a microUSB port for charging, so you can use a microUSB cable you have on hand (although you might need at least a 3A charger). You also get 100GB of Google Drive storage free for 2 years, a 60-day free trial of Google Play Music All Access ($9.99 after that), and 12 free sessions of GoGo inflight internet. It comes in white, black, or four color options (blue, green, yellow and red). It is available for pre-order in the Google Play store for $279.99, as well as online and in-store retailers such as Amazon and Best Buy. It’s shipping soon!
