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

Though I understand that strategically a Chromebook are built RRP 1st and everything else 2nd, surely more power + cost savings and newer ARM SoCs are substantially cheaper than these uhh dated Intel parts? Is there some sort of an embargo barring non-Samsung OEMs from waiting out on ARM SoCs?
S4 Prime, Exynos 5250 and the latest Tegra 4 comes to mind. Pick any and the savings can be used on probably slightly larger 32Gb internal storage + other specs maybe etc?
