HP presents new Chromebook for educational purposes

HP has announced a new Chromebook device that has been designed from the ground up for educational purposes. The device, called Chromebook 11 G4 Education Edition, targets students and teachers and tries to meet their demands with a sturdy chassis and enough computational power under the hood.

“The popularity of Chromebooks in the classroom offers a simple, secure, and manageable solution to enable technology-based learning,” said Gus Schmedlen, vice president of Worldwide Education, HP. “With the HP Chromebook 11 G4 Education Edition (EE), we are bringing innovation, design and HP’s legendary quality to students and teachers in a durable device built to survive the rigorous school environment while enabling students to achieve more both in and out of the classroom.”

The Chromebook 11 G4 Education Edition is HP’s thinnest, rugged Chromebook for educational purposes. The device is just 20 mm thick and weighs just 2.7 pounds (1.22 kg) and in addition it does not have a cooling fan! The Chromebook meets all MIL-STD requirements and passes HP’s 70 cm drop test, which makes sure that even if you drop the notebook, it will survive with no problems at all. The keyboard is water-proof so even if you spill liquids on it, the notebook will be fine, so this is a nice additional feature as well.

The new Chromebook comes with a 11.6-inch display that works at 1366 x 768 pixels and features a dual-core Intel Celeron N2840 processor at 2.16 GHz (2.58 GHz Turbo) with 1 MB of L2 cache. The Chromebook 11 G4 Education Edition also has 2 GB or 4 GB of RAM (depending on the model), 32 GB or 64 GB of internal memory (this also depends on the model) and 802.11ac Wi-Fi plus Bluetooth.

The new Chromebook 11 G4 Education Edition will be available in both black and electric green. The notebook will be available later this month at USD 199 and up so given the hardware inside and the cool colors it comes with, the new HP Chromebook has every chance to become a massive hit.
