HP Chromebook 14 GS and Chromebook 11 G6 are touted to be durable. It also has a microSD slot and comes standard with 802.11 ac 2x2 MIMO Wi-Fi. The Chromebook 14 G5 have the ports at the sides of the palm rest while the 11 G6 appears to have the ports at the upper corners, claims a report by 9to5Google citing a CNET report.

After Lenovo, HP has announced that it will be showcasing new affordable Chromebooks at CES 2018 next week. In addition, the new Chromebook 11 looks to offer a competitive audio and social experience due to its inclusion of dual stereo speakers as well as a high-dynamic range (HDR) camera. The whole thing is 0.71-inches thick and weighs 2.43 pounds.

Chromebooks are easy to use and ideal for sharing by multiple users. Chrome OS provides additional security since it's automatically updated to guard against ever-changing online threats. Acer's previous Chromebooks have been some of the most popular laptops in recent sales events like Black Friday and Amazon's Prime Day, invariably selling out more quickly than their Windows 10 counterparts.

Availability wise, Acer has said that the Chromebook will appear in the European, Middle Eastern, and African markets in March where the base model will start at €249, before launching in the U.S. in April for US$249. Actual battery life varies depending on product specifications, computer settings and applications or features launched. Based on Google power_LoadTest.
