HP Chromebook details leak

Acer was recently singing the praises of Google’s Chrome OS and strong sales for its Chromebook offerings in the face of uninspiring sales of Windows 8 computers. However, Acer isn't the only computer maker looking to get in on the rising popularity of Chrome.

A leaked document that turned up on HP's own website hints that it is set to get into the Chromebook market as well. The unannounced, $330 Pavilion 14-c010us Chromebook will have a  1.1 GHz Intel Celeron processor under the hood. That processor would be paired with 2 GB of RAM, a 16 GB SSD, and a 14-inch display (1366x768).

The 14-inch screen would certainly set the machine apart from other Chromebooks on the market that feature smaller 11.6-inch screens. The larger screen does mean less battery life with HP's leaked document claiming a maximum runtime of four hours and 15 minutes. For comparison, Chromebooks from other manufacturers offer up to 7 hours of battery life.

The Verge reports that the document had an embargo date of February 17, so we’ll likely know more details along availability at that time.

for $250 you can get a gateway NE series laptop brand new... I got one at target last year for $250 (back to school sale) which I tricked out by switching the celeron to a pent 960 (got on ebay for $8) added an additional 4gb ram (8gb total) and threw in a warranty replacement ocz ssd. I spent less than $275 for a 2.1 pent dual core (2nd gen core) 8gb ram and a ssd - and it had win7 x64.

True, not everyone has a replacement ssd laying around but the default 320gb hdd isn't that bad considering the price.

But hey, don't let me talk you out of buying this overpriced (even at $200) piece of junk.
