HP Chromebook 11 (11-2001TU) — Review

HP Chromebook 11 (11-2001TU) — Review

HP has jumped into Chromebook’s with a vengeance. As one of the largest PC makers in the world, they have the scale and facilities to churn out models quite quickly and they’re doing so with their Chromebooks. It’s a good sign that Chromebooks have enough traction to warrant so many iterations of ChromeOS based notebooks and we’re always happy to see more. The HP Chromebook 11 got a sneaky launch, it showed up in a JB HiFi store back in mid-May, when they sold one to a customer looking at the previous model. It took a while for HP to[Read More...]

HP officially launches their HP SlateBook 14 laptop running Android

HP is certainly embracing Android, they’ve officially announced the HP Slatebook 14, we saw leaked back in April. The Slatebook 14 is of course HP’s Android running laptop, and it’s certainly a cheery, vibrant looking machine. Priced at US$399, the Slatebook PC, is actually priced just above their Chromebook offerings in the US. The Slatebook 14 will be powered by an Nvidia Tegra 4 CPU and 2GB of RAM, it will come with 64GB of on-board storage but we also spy an SD Card reader on the right hand-side. As the name suggests, the laptop will come with a 14″[Read More...]

HP Chromebook 11 G2 – First Impressions

HP Chromebook 11 G2 – First Impressions

We noted yesterday that HP appears to have released an as-yet-unannounced Chromebook 11 in Australia. Today, it appears that the new Chromebook is in fact called the “Chromebook 11 G2″ according to this listing on the HP website. We’ve also got a more detailed first impressions post from its new owner. Take it away, Lachlan: Since opening up this mystery Chromebook, I’ve been playing around with it quite a bit. First of all, I have to say I’m a fan of the design. It’s a cheap and cheerful laptop but the powder white finish on the lid and the dimpled[Read More...]

New model HP Chromebook 11 released quietly in Australia

New model HP Chromebook 11 released quietly in Australia

Chromebooks don’t get a terribly large amount of press when released, especially in Australia, but this is a new way to launch a product. Reddit user Llachlanlikesathing posted on reddit about his experience trying to purchase the HP Chromebook 11, and it appears that he has managed to accidentally acquire an as yet unannounced model. Lachlan was looking for a new Chromebook 11 and after some research, called his local JB Hifi store to enquire about stock levels. Once he got there though he found that the model they had in stock, was not the one he was looking at[Read More...]

Want an Android powered laptop from HP? Meet the HP Slatebook

Want an Android powered laptop from HP? Meet the HP Slatebook

After giving up on their own mobile platform – WebOS – HP, one of the largest PC manufacturers in the world, has been dabbling in Android based products in various form factors since their initial foray with the Slate 7. Their recent All-in-One, the Slate 21 showed they felt that Android could be used as a desktop machine and now it appears they believe it’s time for a mainstream laptop running Android. HP themselves have even tried playing with the form factor previously with the Slatebook X2, but that involved a detachable tablet, similar to the Asus Transformer range that[Read More...]

HP Slate 7 Beats Special Edition breaks cover in “product rotation” video

HP Slate 7 Beats Special Edition breaks cover in “product rotation” video

HP is continuing its line of Android products and Beats-branded products again at the same time, with a new Slate 7 Beats Special Edition tablet. We heard a few rumblings of the new tablet earlier this month, but didn’t have anything official to go on until now. HP added a quick 360-degree “product rotation” video to their site over the weekend. You can see some screencaps from the video above. The new tablet looks to be a variant of its Slate 7 Extreme Edition tablet, trading in the silver accents for hot red and adding Beats branding to the tablet.[Read More...]

Google mandating that ‘powered by Android’ logo to appear on boot-up screen

Google mandating that ‘powered by Android’ logo to appear on boot-up screen

Android Central recently noticed that the Samsung Galaxy S5 boot-up screen had one curious addition to the screen, in the form of a somewhat large ‘Powered by Android’ logo appearing on the bottom of the screen. This also seemed the case for the recently launched HTC One (M8) smartphone as well. There has been a fair bit of speculation that this latest addition to the boot-up screen was the result of a meeting between Google and leading Android manufacturers. However, it now seems this is part of a much larger plan currently playing out. According to an email confirmed by[Read More...]

HP Chromebook 14(14-Q002TU) — Review

HP Chromebook 14(14-Q002TU) — Review

Haswell means more power for longer, but is it worth the higher price? HP joined the growing list of OEMs manufacturing Chromebooks with the HP Chromebook 14(14c001tu) back in March last year. They’ve since followed up with the Chromebook 11 and a Chromebook 14 followup the HP 14-Q002TU. It has upgraded hardware and a more interesting array of colour options, but it is at its core still a 14″ HP laptop, modified for use with ChromeOS. HP still ships more laptops than most manufacturers could ever dream of, but with Windows 8 sales on the decline and customers now interested[Read More...]

HP announce Chromebox, arriving in Q2 2014

HP announce Chromebox, arriving in Q2 2014

It seems it’s a day for Chrome news, as almost immediately following Google’s announcement about Chromebox for Meetings, HP made some announcements regarding its upcoming Chromebox devices. We don’t know too much yet in terms of pricing, but the HP Chromebox is slated to arrive in the northern spring (so, a couple of months away). While the HP Chromebox isn’t specifically to be offered as a “Chromebox for Meetings” device, it will be compatible, meaning you can add a camera and microphone to the HP unit and achieve a similar level of functionality. Inside, the HP Chromebox is to have[Read More...]

HP Chromebook 11 — First Look

HP Chromebook 11 — First Look

The HP Chromebook 11 enters an increasingly crowded market, where there are (at least in Australia) a good number of choices in Chromebooks around the $300-$400 mark. Already we’ve seen the Samsung Chromebook, Acer C7, Acer C720 and glimmers of an HP Chromebook 14, but there is definitely room left for innovation in this space. Chromebooks are often criticised for limited functionality, or being rather underpowered, but there have been exceptions to this. With a solid build, a vastly improved design (compared with some of the very practical, industrial Chromebooks we’ve seen so far), the HP Chromebook 11 makes a[Read More...]
