HP's 14-Inch Pavilion Chromebook Outed

A leaked specification sheet from U.S. PC manufacturer HP has outed the existence of a 14-inch Pavilion Chromebook.

The Pavilion Chromebook 14-c010us is a 4-pound notebook powered by a 1.1GHz Intel Celeron 847 processor and 2 GB of RAM, as well 16 GB of SSD storage, a 14-inch LED-backlit display with a 1,366 x 768 resolution, a webcam, a HDMI-out port and three USB 2.0 ports.

"The HP Pavilion Chromebook gives you fast and easy access to the things you love and depend on, from a world of Google apps and services to your photos and social networks. And since it's the first Chromebook with a 14-inch diagonal design, you get full-size comfort without giving up full-on mobility," the sheet reads.

"Chromebooks are effortlessly simple right out of the box," HP added. "And with automatic updates to your apps and the Google Chrome OS, your software and security is kept up to date without you having to lift a finger."

The larger screen, however, comes at a cost: HP estimates that the Chromebook's battery life will last just four hours without recharging. As for when it's due for a launch, the leaked PDF mentions an advertising embargo date scheduled for February 17.

    I guess they have to have some large form factor chromebooks... But IMHO the appeal is in the small formfactor of the netbook...

    I might consider if it had a better processor and came with more RAM.
