Yesterday I posted a rumor that HP was developing an 11-inch Chromebook and could release it very soon. As it turns out, that launch came much earlier than anyone expected. This morning Google and HP teamed up in New York City to launch the new Chromebook 11, a low-cost laptop that runs Google's Chrome OS.

The Google Chromebook 11 features a 1366x768-pixel, 11-inch IPS display that features a 176 degree viewing angle, while managing to shine 50-percent brighter. Processing is handled by a Samsung Exynos 5250 CPU and 2GB of RAM is present to keep things running nice and smooth. The Chromebook handled connectivity through dual Micro USB 2.0 ports and a wireless 802.11 N connection, use a Micro USB cable to charge their smartphones.

The Chromebook 11 weighs in at just 2.3-pounds and measures in at 0.7-inches thick. This lightweight design is accomplished thanks to a plastic exterior shell which surrounds a magnesium frame that provides strength and rigidity. The Chromebook 11 retails for $279, and is available to order from Google Play, Best Buy, Amazon, and direct from HP today.
