HP has quietly been making Chromebooks for quite a while now and their latest unit is scheduled to arrive in October. It will be an 11.6-inch unit that features a touchscreen - and as such, will easily work with Android Applications that are already available on a select few machines. Google is pushing big to get Android on ChromeOS and with the help of hardware partners like HP, this will become a reality soon. The question I have is, "Is this a good move, or should everything get the native Android treatment?"
Enter the HP Chromebook 11 G5, an 11.6-inch laptop which features a touchscreen, meaning it'll support Android apps when Google rolls that service out later in 2016. Additionally, the new lightweight (2.51 lbs) Chromebook comes with an Intel Celeron N3060 processor and, according to HP, up to 12.5 hours of battery life. But the best part, perhaps, is that the 11 G5 will only cost $189 when it hits stores in October.
