HP Launches Two New Chromebooks for the Education Market–X360 11 G2 EE and 11 7G EE

   

The HP Chromebook 11 G7 EE is an entry-level Chrome OS laptop with an 11.6 inch display, while the HP Chromebook x360 11 G2 EE is a convertible tablet-style model with a touchscreen display and optional support for a Wacom EMR digital pen. Both models feature Intel Gemini Lake processors, and both should be available in April.

Designed for classroom use, the laptops feature spill-resistant keyboards, Corning Gorilla Glass displays, and a shock-absorbing rubber trim. The x360 model is a little thicker and heavier, has dual cameras (front-facing and world-facing), and has a bit more storage on entry-level models.
