HP plans to enter the Chromebook space, according to a leaked spec sheet available on the company’s website.
The newly discovered PDF listing has the lowdown on a yet-to-be-unveiled Pavilion Chromebook. The noteworthy specs include a 14-inch, 1,366-by-768-pixel display, as well as a 1.1GHz Celeron processor, 2GB of RAM, and 16GB solid-state drive.
HP’s first Chromebook notably sports a display that is—although the same in terms of resolution— much larger than the current 11.6-inch models, as The Verge also noted. The first Chromebooks, made by Acer and Samsung, launched at Google I/O in May 2011 and began shipping a month later, with Lenovo subsequently entering the market in early 2013.
Google’s Chrome operating system, known for its Web-based applications, powers the Chromebook. Aside from the low-cost laptop models, various desktop versions, dubbed “Chromeboxes,” also exist.
9to5Google contacted HP to gather more details, such as a confirmation, price, and availability, on the Pavilion Chromebook, and we’ll update when more information is available.
UPDATE: HP has declined to comment on the leaked spec sheet. The actual PDF, however, designated Feb. 17 as an embargo date for advertisements. So, more details may emerge in a couple of weeks.
