The Haswell-based HP Chromebook14 has gone on sale in Australia in a choice of three colours for $499, providing more options for those wishing to use Google's Chrome OS rather than a conventional operating system.
Although local HP officials claimed the HP Chromebook was the first Haswell-based Chromebook, iTWire has already reviewed the Haswell-based Acer C720 Chromebook.
Other features of the Chromebook14 include a 14in display, a 16GB solid-state drive, HDMI, USB 2.0 and USB 3.0 ports, Wi-Fi (802.11a/b/g/n), Bluetooth, webcam, dual speakers, and a combo headphone/microphone jack.
The price includes 100GB of Google Drive storage for two years.
"There are customers telling us they are interested in new operating systems and in particular Chromebooks," said Jeff Woodhouse, market development manager for consumer notebooks at HP Australia.
"We built the HP Chromebook to offer a great experience, choice and affordability, with a design that is truly unique."
Oh, and the colours? White, turquoise and peach (pictured above).
