HP Chromebook 14 steals Acer’s AMD thunder, Chromebook x360 14 G1 coming

HP Chromebook 14

AMD believes that its competition is "underserving the performance of the market", deciding to make its own push by introducing A4 and A6-powered Chromebooks.

Like competing offerings from Acer and Lenovo, the new Asus Chromebooks sport rugged features created to help protect against spills, drops, and other hazards that come from schoolkids handling them all day.

Along with announcing the new Asus CT100 Chromebook tablet Asus also refreshed their current Chromebooks with a new Chromebook Flip C214 and two more traditional clamshell Chromebooks: an 11.6inch Chromebook C204 and a 14inch Chromebook C403. AMD has noticeably been missing from the action until now. HP is changing that today by announcing world's first AMD-based Chromebook. Unlike the Ryzens, the A-Series processors it will come with Radeon R4 and R5 series graphics instead of Radeon Vega Graphics for its integrated graphics. This 14-inch AMD-powered Chromebook will be available in 1366 x 768p non-touch and 1920 x 1080p touchscreen models - and at $30 more, the touchscreen is indeed the model you should be grabbing.

The HP Chromebook 14 will weigh 3.40 pounds and have a top battery life of 9 hours and 15 minutes.

The Chromebook C403, on the other hand, has the same design as the C204 but features a 14-inch display. For wider connectivity, the Acer Chromebook 315 is compatible with Wi-Fi 802.11ac standards. Available in white, blue, and gray, the AMD-powered Chrome OS device will also retail for a lower starting price of $269. The company also wants to power Google Chromebooks with two 7th generation AMD A-series processors. Curiously, it's rather meager on the storage with only 32 or 64 of slower eMMC storage. It will weight 3.7 pounds and have an excellent battery life of up to 13 hours.

More than just oversized speakers.
