HP announces two new Chromebooks for the education market. The HP Chromebook x360 11 G2 Education Edition and Chromebook 11 G7 EE promise both durability and convenience.
Apple and Microsoft are not the only high-tech giants interested in the education market. HP has always been present in this field and is now back in the spotlight with two new Chromebooks specially designed for schoolchildren. Both products have passed the MIL-STD-810G test and feature a spill-resistant keypad. Regarding the HP Chromebook x360 11 G2 Education Edition, it sports an 11-inch IPS touch screen with a resolution of 1366 x 768 pixels. The slab can be rotated 360 °. Suddenly, the Chromebook can be used like a tablet.
What's also interesting is that it supports the Wacom EMR stylus.
A processor according to your budget
Under the hood of the Chromebook x360 11 G2 Education Edition is a dual-core Celeron N4000 processor or a quad-core N4100, depending on which model the buyer chooses. In both cases, we take advantage of 8 GB of RAM and internal storage between 32 and 64 GB. Weighing only 1.47 kg, this Chromebook from HP promises great portability. Moreover, its autonomy is about 11.5 hours.
For its part, the HP Chromebook 11 G7 EE differs mainly from its brother by its 11-inch screen which rotates only 180 °. In addition to that, it is offered in non-touch versions. We can choose between an IPS screen and an SVA panel designed by Samsung. It should be noted that the non-touch models have better autonomy (up to 13 hours).
Marketing from the second trimester
Regarding connectivity, the Chromebook x360 11 G2 EE and 11 G7 EE have two USB-C ports. There's also a USB-A connector, not to mention the 3.5mm jack as well as the SD card reader.
Finally, be aware that these new HP Chromebooks will be marketed from April. However, we do not know their prices.
