HP announces ruggedized sub-$200 Chromebook

Hot on the heels of Acer’s sub $200 Chromebook announcement and its own updated education notebook lineup, HP has unveiled the Chromebook 11 G4 Education Edition (EE), also priced at $199.

The 4G EE is designed for the classroom, and therefore meant to be durable and lightweight, the company said.

It comes in at 0.79 inches thick and weighs 2.7 pounds, is fanless, and comes with MIL-STD certification for ruggedness.

The latter is thanks to the rubber edge design, which allows it to survive a 70 cm drop (27.6 inches), according to HP, as well as a spill-resistant keyboard, and a hinge that is able to go a full 180-degrees for collaboration.

Internal specs include an Intel Celeron processor, optional 3G/4G WWAN connectivity, and the optional Chrome Management Console.

It comes in black and “electric green.”
