MacBook-Thin Chromebook 13 Targets Pros for $499

Chromebooks aren’t just for school kids anymore. With its sleek aluminum design and available 6th-generation Core m processor, the HP Chromebook 13 is MacBook thin and powerful enough to run dual external high-def displays. Starting at $499, this system is on the expensive side for a Chrome OS laptop, but it’s much cheaper than Windows ultraportables while offering business-friendly features.

The Chromebook 13 should turn heads and stand up to abuse with its brushed anodized aluminum design, which measures just 0.5 inches thin and weighs 2.86 pounds. The all-metal chassis also packs a sharp and glossy quad HD display (3200 x 1800 pixels) and premium B&O Play audio, which should come in handy for conference calls. (HP will also offer a 1080p matte screen option.)

The port selection includes two USB-C, a full-size USB, headphone jack and microSD Card slot. Based on my first impressions, the keyboard felt fairly comfortable and the touchpad offered smooth navigation, though it’s a bit shorter than I’d like.
