Intel Haswell-based Chromebooks announced by Intel for HP, Acer, ASUS and Toshiba

On the occasion of the IDF 2013, Intel along with Google has taken the opportunity to complete its Chromebook ranges. On the menu, new machines signed are Acer, Asus, HP and Toshiba for the use of Haswell processors for greater autonomy.

It's Sundar Pichai, senior vice president at Google and head of Android and Chrome Division, who presented the new machines with Chrome OS. Using Haswell processors would save about 15% performance and 50% not far from the side of autonomy. At a time when Intel highlights the Bay Trail platform for its 2-in-1 machines, the choice of Google is interesting because the Mountain View company moves away from Atom to "real processors" Core.

HP certainly seems to have made bold choice for its model with a Chromebook that is available in various colors (white, turquoise and peach) with a screen size of 14 inches. With a Haswell processor, the HP 14 Chromebook features a 16GB SSD with 100 GB of storage on Google Drive as found on a decent machine, the connections include: HDMI, USB 2.0 and USB 3.0 ports. All for a price of $299 it is set for launch by the end of the year in US. As per some contact, HP has unfortunately not been able to specify the date of commercialization in Europe.
