HP sure devises its own timeline for making announcements and does not follow the trend.

Today, HP unveiled its latest Chrome OS laptops, the Chromebook 11 G6 Education Edition (EE) and the Chromebook 14 G5. While the Chromebook 11 G6 EE's built for a chaotic classroom, with co-molded rubber contact points and a strengthened corner design to absorb bumps, the Chromebook 14 G5's keyboard is created to survive the minor spills and features pick-resistant keys.

HP is readying two new Chromebooks to be shown at CES 2018 next before hitting markets in February 2018.

Apart from having somewhat confusing names, both Chromebooks are aimed at the education and enterprise markets, but they're perfectly serviceable machines for everyday use. HP claims that the dual-core Intel Celeron N3350 is more power efficient and the quad-core Intel Celeron N3450 comes with RAM configurable up to 8GB.

When it comes to displays, the HP Chromebook 14 G5 and HP Chromebook 11 G6 begin at 1366x768 pixels resolution. However, buyers do have an option to opt for a touchscreen HD IPS panel featuring a 180-degree hinge.

The formerly silver palm rests and top case is now black to match the dark keys, while the 11 G6 sports an orange trim option along the edges and MIL-STD 810G military proofing. The company has promised more durability in the Chromebook 14 G5 and Chromebook 11 G6. You'll find 3.5mm audio ports on both models as well as expandable storage support through microSD cards if more storage space is needed beyond what's available internally. Other specs on the devices include two USB Type-C ports and headphone jack.

The sizes of the screens will be 14-inches for the Chromebook 14 G5 and 11.6-inches for the Chromebook 11 G6.
