HP Pavilion 14, first HP with the Google Chrome OS

HP has created its first Chromebook, the Pavillion 14. The new web-based notebook joins similar offerings including the Google Chromebook from Samsung and the C7 from Acer. While HP is charging a premium for its device, it is quick to point to the additional 2-inches of diagonal screen real estate offered by its 14-inch display as a selling point.

HP has opted to power its device by an Intel Celeron processor with integrated Intel graphics and can accommodate up to 4GB of system RAM. Native storage is limited to 16GB, although as a cloud-based device that leans almost entirely on Google's cloud-based services, this should prove adequate. Included as part of the deal is 100GB of Google Drive storage for two years free of charge.

HP says the Pavillion 14 weighs under 4 pounds and includes a wide range of ports including HDMI, USB 2.0, Ethernet and a combined headphone/microphone port. Additionally, the Pavillion 14 incorporates an HP Truevision HD Webcam and has a swappable battery.

The HP Pavillion 14 Chromebook is available now for $330.
