HP’s new Chromebooks don’t fix what ain’t broke

HP Chromebook 14 G5 vs G4

HP has added two new Chromebooks to its lineup, an 11-inch and 14-inch model that look set to become workhorses for anyone needing a cheap PC. Both models have the same internals, the only big difference being the size of the screen, and an HD touchscreen with a 180-degree fold-flat hinge on the 11-inch model.

The Chromebook 14 G5 is basically just a bigger version of the venerable Chromebook 11 G5 that's been on sale for over a year. It features an Intel Celeron N3350 or N3450 processor, 8GB of memory and 64GB of storage. The specs are in line with, or even a little ahead of, other budget entry-level Chromebooks, and the processor combined with 8GB of RAM should make for efficient web browsing and using internet-based apps and Google Drive services, which is normally what this kind of Chromebook is designed to do.
