If you're in the market for a mid-range or high-end Chromebook, this is not for you. The hard, matte plastic exterior gives this laptop a really rugged feeling - it's very confidence-inspiring - and HP says that's to make it attractive to schools (though the Chromebook 14 will be sold in the consumer channel).

Apart from that, AMD also announced its latest A-Series processors, A6-9220C and A4-9120C that comes with a surprisingly low TDP rated at only 6W.

"The series includes two traditional clamshell laptops - the 11.6-inch ASUS Chromebook C204 and the 14-inch ASUS Chromebook C403 - and the 14-inch ASUS Chromebook Flip C214 convertible", the company announced. It is powered by AMD's A6 and A4 chips with Radeon graphics. In addition, AMD has committed to delivering "regular" Radeon Software Adrenalin Edition driver updates for all processor with Radeon graphics.

AMD released its most recent 2000-series mobile processors in September, "H" models with current-generation integrated Vega graphics, but intended for use with discrete graphics in budget-to-midrange gaming laptops. The device has 4GB of RAM, 32GB built-in storage, and 47.36 Wh battery. It will be available in colors like white, blue and gray.it houses the same-sized display but supports a higher resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels. The CT100 will be a new tablet form-factor for Asus, following the lead of the Google Pixel Slate, and feature a 9.7-inch QXGA wide-angle touch display to compete against the iPad. There are several configuration options with respect to the display: The base model uses a 1366 x 768 screen, which can be had with or without touch and there's a full HD choice as well. Curiously, it's rather meager on the storage with only 32 or 64 of slower eMMC storage. For wider connectivity, the Acer Chromebook 315 is compatible with Wi-Fi 802.11ac standards. The laptop promises a battery life of 10 hours. It will be available for purchase in North America in February with a price tag of $279.
