While it may seem that tablets are rising at the cost of slow laptops sales, laptops still have enough interest and user base of the same. Moreover companies are changing with times to tackle this situation. It’s interesting to note that, in spite of fall in sales of laptops, Google’s Chromebooks have been able to garner good market share. Launched just two years back with few laptop manufacturers (HP Samsung Acer), Chrome books gives the impression as the gadget made for the modern net savvy generation. The whole device makes full use of cloud computing to ensure that one’s data is available anytime and anywhere. Though some dislike it for its applications support since it’s having Chrome OS and not full Windows/ Mac/ Linux OS. But it does helps in keeping the device at good price since its very light on system resources.
Today HP introduced its latest chrome book dubbed as Chrome book 11. Its design is borrowed heavily from Chromebook Pixel, which was released last year in similar fashion to Nexus devices, i.e., it was aimed at showing the capabilities of Chrome OS. But unlike the nexus series, the Pixel was expensively priced at 1299 US Dollars. This device brings same kind of design language (although not metallic) at very good price. Apart from usual things, users will also be getting 100 GB Google Drive storage for the period of two months. It would also give users 60 days trial of Google Play Music All Access. USA people will also be getting 12 free internet sessions from GoGo Inflight internet.
