Although the initial adoption was slow, Google’s ChromeOS has certainly picked up the pace recently. Thanks to some new upgrades that improve its usability and features, the operating system is growing in popularity by the day. HP recently introduced the Chromebook X2—a premium 2-in-1 laptop for those who desire portability. Now, the company welcomes another addition to its 2018 lineup with the Chromebook X360 14.

At 14-inches, the new laptop is not as portable as its 12.3-inch sibling. Nevertheless, its special hinge allows users to turn it into a large tablet. This convertible computer can flip its 14-inch Full HD IPS WLED-backlit touchscreen all the way back to turn it into a slate. You can also set it to work as a tent or stand depending on your preference.

As indicated above, the device runs on Google’s ChromeOS platform to deliver a versatile computer for entertainment and productivity. Even though it’s not as powerful as a Windows or macOS-running machine, it’s capable enough for most common functions..

There are two configurations available for the HP Chromebook X360 14: an 8th-generation Core i3 or i5 processor. Both variations come with 8GB of RAM and a 64GB eMMC internal storage. The built-in battery provides an estimated 13 hours and 30 minutes of usage time. Bang & Olufsen Play audio-enhancement is likewise on board to enhance your multimedia experience. Moreover, the manufacturer claims that the metal chassis is coated with a special finish that improves its durability.
