HP Chromebook details revealed through leak

According to The Verge, HP reportedly leaked a PDF on its own site outlining specs of their first Chromebook called the “HP Pavilion Chromebook computer.” Although the document has been removed from the site, it reportedly included notes that the display will be larger than other Chromebooks at 14 inches, but a battery life of three hours less than its competitors.

The spec sheet stated that the Pavilion Chromebook will have a 1.1GHz Celeron processor, 2GB of RAM and a 16GB solid-state device. As mentioned, the screen will be the largest Chromebook screen on the market at launch, but will offer the same resolution as the smaller screened options, while the battery life will average at four hours and 15 minutes. While battery life suffers slightly, the capacity of this particular Chromebook appears to be superior.

The Verge updated their reporting, stating that “HP responded to our request with a simple ‘no comment,’ but we also noticed that the PDF has an Ad Embargo date of February 17th of this year — we expect we’ll hear the full story right around then.”

The Chromebook movement

The Chromebook has essentially filled the space between tablets and laptops, and because of it’s light weight, long battery life, and fast browsing, it could stand to eat up some market share of competitors, particularly given that the price point tends to be substantially lower.

Running on the Google Operating System (OS), it is known for starting up with a simple push of a button rather than waiting on a slow boot up process, and uses web applications rather than software that traditionally slows down a machine. Its functionality is limited, and users aren’t sitting on a beach using Photoshop, rather they are in WordPress or Facebook or Gmail to keep the core functions of their business or personal life running without carrying a 10 pound laptop around, or shelling out $929 for a tablet.
