HP announces new Chromebook convertibles with pen support, slim designs, and more

HP announced a couple of new Chromebook convertibles today, including the Chromebook x360 12b and the Chrromebook x360 14b. If it's not entirely obvious, they come in 12- and 14-inch sizes, respectively.

They're meant to have thin and stylish designs, at 17.3mm on the 12-inch model and 18.8mm on the 14-inch one. They're made of metal, and they come with backlit keyboards, both USB Type-A and Type-C, and more.

The Chromebook x360 12b comes with a 3:2 display, sporting a resolution of 1366x912. The 14b, on the other hand, is 16:9, offered in HD and FHD options. CPU options are both Intel-based, offering either a dual-core Celeron N4000 or a quad-core Pentium chip. You'll also get 4GB RAM and 32GB of storage, along with microSD support.

They both have support for USI pens, which is a two-way communication protocol between the pen and the screen. Moreover, the HP Rechargeable USI Pen has a magnet, so you can easily attach it to the side of the Chromebook x360.

And of course, you get support for Android apps from the Google Play Store, and support for Google Assistant. The Chromebook x360 12b and 14b will be available later on this month starting at $359 and $379, respectively, and the pen is coming in November for $69.99.
