Chrome OS finally seems to be getting some attention from top PC vendors. Close on the heels of Lenovo’s recent announcement of its maiden Chromebook , a spec sheet detailing HP's first Chrome OS device was discovered on the PC and printing ink behemoth's website on Monday.
Before being pulled off
, the said document gave away pretty much everything worth knowing about the device. We now know that HP has decided to go against the grain by opting for the 14-inch form factor for its Chromebook instead of the 12.1- and 11.6-inch options currently on the market.
The other specs, though, are pretty standard: 1.1 GHz dual-core Intel Celeron 847 processor, 2GB DDR3 RAM, 16GB SSD, 14-inch LED-backlit screen (1,366x768), HP TrueVision HD Webcam, three USB 2.0 ports, and a 4-Cell lithium-ion battery with a rather abysmal 4.25-hour battery life.
An official announcement is likely on or after February 17, 2013, the ad embargo date mentioned in the document.
