Asus hasn't actually released any press release for this new Chromebook and it's not showing on the Asus Australia website either. Price of the Asus model is yet to be revealed, though. The anodised aluminium keyboard deck also comes in Cloud Blue with colour-matched keycaps and backlit support. The Chromebook x360 14 has a 360-degree hinge that offers four hybrid positions - laptop, tablet, tent and stand modes. Buyers have a couple processor options, the 8th-generation Intel Core i3 and i5, these joined by 64GB eMMC internal storage and 8GB of RAM. Wireless connectivity includes WiFi 802.11a/b/g/n/ac and Bluetooth 4.0, it has a combination audio jack for headphone/microphone and 2x USB-A ports and 2x USB-C ports with display and power delivery support - and an HD webcam. In terms of longevity, the convertible's battery is supposed to last up to 14 hours, though it largely depends on your system configuration, HP said. The presence of Google's Chrome OS brings a bunch of Google apps, including Google Chrome browser and Google Drive integration.

Google's new Chromebook video reminds the world of the worst of Apple and Microsoft computers.

It has a 14-inch screen with a narrow bezel, but you can choose between a full HD touchscreen display and a non-touchscreen one that has a 1,366x768-pixel resolution.

The HP Chromebook x360 14 is now available to preorder from HP.com and BestBuy.com for $599 Dollars; the device should be available to purchase in Best Buy stores, as well, starting on October 21. The display panels on both Chromebook models have 60Hz anti-glare panel along with a 45 percent NTSC colour gamut.
