Posted by at 11:56 am on June 27, 2016


HP announced an update to its Chromebook lineup, the Chromebook 11 G5. The new device will optionally feature a touchscreen for the first time, and it’s priced with touch capability starting at $269.

The 11.6-inch Chromebook 11 G5 features a thinner design and narrower display bezel compared to previous generations. It weighs in at 2.51 lbs. and sports an Intel Celeron N3060 dual-core processor clocked at 1.6 GHz with a 2.48 GHz burst frequency. The CPU sips only 6 watts of power, and the new Chromebook 11 G5 offers up to 12.5 hours of battery life (or 11 hours with a touchscreen), according to HP.

The  touchscreen option features Corning Gorilla Glass NBT, offering increased durability and anti-glare protection. With or without touch, the display has a resolution of 1366 x 768. However, the touchscreen is a welcomed addition for users looking to use their favorite touch-enabled Chrome and Android applications from the Google Play Store, which is tentatively planned to be compatible with Chrome OS later this year.

The new Chromebook 11 G5 starts at $189, with touchscreen models starting at $269, and either will be available through channel partners in July. Retailers will see the new device this October.
