"At $279, it's the same high-design laptop that pretty much anyone can buy," said Caesar Sengupta, Google product management director. "At $279, this is an incredible laptop."
Unlike the Chromebook Pixel, the new Chromebook 11 does not feature a touchscreen display. Touchscreen will eventually be everywhere, but right now Google wanted to build something at a price point that would make it widely available.
The new Chromebook has virus protection built-in and includes 100GB of Google Drive cloud storage, which is free for two years. Consumers will also get 60 days of Google Play Music All Access with purchase.
It will come either in a Wi-Fi only model, or 4G LTE equipped model. However, HP has not announced the pricing or availability for the 4G LTE version.
Chromebooks are unique because unlike traditional computers they don't run on Windows or Apple's Mac OS. Rather, they are run on a Chrome-based browser. Since most of the computer's storage is in the cloud, the device only has 16GB of internal storage.
The computer, which weighs just over 2 pounds, has up to six hours of battery life, features a front facing camera and has two USB 2.0 ports.
