On its own web store, Hewlett Packard showed a leaked specification sheet and picture of its latest addition to the Chromebook laptop bandwagon, the Chromebook Pavilion. It is HP’s first Chrome OS powered laptop.
The aesthetic look of this contraption adds to its high-powered impression though its innards don’t stray too far from other Chromebooks in the market. One major difference is its larger screen though its processor and other specs is deemed less powerful than most of HP’s laptop ensemble.
Specification-wise, this Chromebook has a 14-inch HD BrightView LED-backlit display with 1366 x 768 pixel resolution that is powered by an Intel Celeron processor 847 CPU at 1.1GHz, Chrome OS, Intel HD GPU with 2GB of DDR3 SDRAM that is expandable up to 4GB, and 16GB of SSD storage space. Other peripherals include 3 USB 2.0 ports, 1 HDMI out, 2 RJ-45 port (LAN), with headphone and a microphone combo port.
This machine is 0.83 inches thick, 13.66 inches wide, 9.37 inches deep, and weighs 3.96 lbs (1.8 kg) with a battery life of 4 hours and 15 minutes for its 2.55AH lithium-ion battery. The HP Chromebook Pavilion is slated to be released on February 17 just in time for the Mobile World Congress 2013 in Barcelona at month-end. No price was mentioned for this laptop as of this date so stay tuned.
