The latest Chromebook from Google, the HP Chromebook 11 is low-cost Chrome OS laptop with a Chromebook Pixel-inspired plastic shell, sharing the glowing status bar on the top of the lid as well as a similar unibody design. It touts an 11-inch, 1366 x 768 pixel IPS display, with 2GB of RAM and a 16GB SSD.

Description

As if Chromebooks' prices weren't low enough, Acer has brought out a new Haswell Chromebook that can be configured for as low as $199.99. With promises of long battery life and snappy performance, the C720 makes Chromebooks look more appealing than ever.

HP's Chromebook 14 is one of the first Chromebooks to ship with a Haswell processor. It includes a 14-inch display, a solid state hard drive, and comes in some bright and fun colors as well.

Acer takes on the Chromebook Pixel with the second ever touchscreen Chromebook. While the Pixel may be a more premium laptop in a number of ways, the C720P trounces it in one area: price.
