One of my go-to Chromebooks over the past year has been HP’s Chromebook x360 14c and now, it’s getting a 2021 refresh with updated chips and faster storage, too.
The 2021 version of the HP Chromebook x360 14c is essentially the same product that was released last year. It has a 14-inch touchscreen display on a 2-in-1 hinge and with an 88% screen-to-body ratio, a fingerprint sensor, a backlit keyboard, and some powerful speakers on either side of the keyboard tuned by Bang & Olufson. It also has the same useful webcam privacy switch and charges over USB-C.
What’s new this year? First, HP has upgraded the chip inside from Intel’s 10th Gen processors to the 11th Gen counterparts, all for the same $499 and up price point. The mainstream model, sold at Best Buy, comes in at $649 with an Intel Core i3 chip.
HP Chromebook x360 14c is also getting an improved storage solution for 2021. That mainstream model is getting a free upgrade from 64GB eMMC storage to 128GB PCIe SSD storage. HP offers up to 256GB SSD storage on the lineup.
