  • We have rapidly changed to a society that is focused on remote work and remote schooling, one dependent on affordable technology. Students and adults working from home need computers that are fast to start, always connected, and able to shift from productivity, to creativity, to entertainment. The questions required answering what makes a 360 degree hinge really great, what are the best aspects of ChromeOS, and how can those things work together to make a product that meets these diverse needs.

  • HP Chromebook 14 x360 was built to be a high-performance mature design design for a Chromebook product. The computer is scalloped on both sides of the keyboard palmrest surface and beveled on bottom edge so that the computer is easier to open, makes a thin computer feel even thinner. The 360 degree hinge allows the user to position it as a laptop, a tablet, or easel, making it easy to switch from typing-centered tasks, to touch, or presenting and entertainment.

  • HP Chromebook 14 x360 is able to quickly change using the beveled edges from laptop, to tablet, tent, or easel modes for work, presentation, or entertainment. The Chromebook 14 x360 doesn't need complex IT support, because it uses ChromeOS and runs Android apps. Because ChromeOS runs Google apps for productivity, Android apps for work and entertainment, and voice computing for quick casual tasks let the user choose how to work best. The Chromebook 14 x360 has a privacy kill switch, that electrically disconnects the HD webcam and dual microphones. It makes working from home easier because it doesn't need an IT department.

  • The Chromebook 14 x360 is a combination of tasteful, sleek design, and performance. It has thinner bezels around the display, for a larger 88% screen-to-body ratio. It has the very newest Wi-Fi 6 network standard for fast Internet.
