An American technology company HP has recently launched its new product. The new affordable Chromebook 11 G5 has been launched.

The laptop is priced at starting $189 (roughly Rs. 12,800), and will be available online from July, while retailers will sell it from October.

 Users can choose from an 11.6-inch HD (1366×768 pixels) IPS touchscreen display with Gorilla Glass protection, or an 11.6-inch HD (1366×768 pixels) anti-glare standard display.

The HP Chromebook 11 G5 is powered by an Intel Celeron N3060 (dual-core, 2MB cache, clocks up to 2.40GHz) processor, paired with either 2GB or 4GB of RAM.

It has TrueVision HD webcam at 720p resolution, and storage options which can be configured either to 16GB or 32GB.

The touchscreen variant weighs about 2.51kgs, while the standard model weighs 2.61kgs. Furthermore, the HP Chromebook 11 G5 touchscreen variant lasts for about 11 hours on a single charge, while the standard model lasts for about full 12 hours 30 minutes. Both models come with support for two USB 3.1 ports, and a headphone jack.

The target market of HP is students. The company took feedback from students using a Chromebook, and tried to incorporate that into its new offering. HP's Chrome OS lineup also includes Chromebook 11, Chromebook 11 EE, Chromebook 13, and Chromebook 14.
