HP has announced its latest Chrome OS product this week and it’s not what we were expecting: a new 21.5-inch HP Chromebase All-in-One desktop, HP Chromebook X2 11 detachable hybrid always on With 4G / LTE connectivity, and a new Chromebook certified HP M24fd USB-C monitor.
The past year and a half has seen a surge in the popularity of Google’s Chrome OS as quad lockdown and social distance have shut down school facilities around the world, allowing distance learning technology to accommodate school district students. Are rushing to adopt.
Chromebooks were perfect for work with their lightweight functionality and affordability, and in the second half of 2020, sales of Chromebooks surpassed every other mobile computing platform by volume.
The widespread adoption of Chrome OS products has been going on for a long time and it has been encouraging to see their popularity, given our preference for a well-made Chromebook. That’s why we’re upset to hear that some laptop makers are making plans. Reduce their Chrome OS offerings. In favor of Windows 11 laptops later this year.
Given the continuing shortage of semiconductors, it’s hard to discuss its economics, so we’re excited to see that HP isn’t releasing new Chrome OS products this year – they’re inventing and bringing this incredible OS. Are also trying. More people in more ways.
This is not the first Chromebase to hit the market. Acer, LG, And لینووو All come with Chrome base AIO model or Chromebox touch screen setup. This Is The first Chromebase AIO to have a rotating display, however, you can enjoy content in both landscape and portrait formats. It also comes with Intel Core processors and 256GB SSD and 16GB RAM, so it will have decent boot power.
Even better, the dual 5W speakers look strong enough to easily fill a room, and a 5MP camera can potentially handle basic photo and video needs, even if they aren’t. Best Camera available.
Glad to see more manufacturers moving in that direction, as family-based desktop AIOs are the ideal platform for something like Chrome OS.
The HP Chromeboox X2 11 isn’t the first separate Chromebook, but we’re glad to see one in the market. Of Lenovo IdeaPad Duet Chromebook. Has been one of our favorite devices for over a year now, and we like a good convertible.
From what we can tell, the biggest draw for the Chromebook X2 11 is the optional 4G / LTE connectivity, which always offers a great experience wherever you go. We’d love to see 5G in one of them someday, but like Godot, we’ll have to wait a little longer. It will be here any day now, we are sure.
Is also new Qualcomm Snapdragon 7C computing platform It features a 2.4GHz base clock and 8-core processor, so it should be very fast on an 11-inch tablet. We will not be able to say anything until we have actually tested it for ourselves.
Add to that the HP M24fd USB-C Chromebook Certified Monitor and we’re seeing HP make a solid investment in the Chrome OS platform on a variety of devices, which is exactly what we want to see more.
