HP's Pavilion Chromebook measures 0.81-0.83 inches (H) by 13.66 inches (W) by 9.37 inches (D) and weighs 3.96 pounds, putting it in Ultrabook territory. It totes a 4-cell battery that's good for up to 4 hours and 15 minutes, which isn't Ultrabook territory.
It's pretty interesting that HP is looking at Google's Chrome OS for an ultra-thin notebook. That doesn't mean HP has lost confidence in Microsoft or its Windows 8 platform, but clearly HP isn't willing to put all its eggs in one basket. With the recent price points introduced by Samsung ($249) and Acer ($199), perhaps the Chromebook category is emerging as the modern-day netbook,
"Modern day netbook"--Yes, totally. Well put.
For anyone who has Wi-Fi or a LAN cable anyplace they need to use a computer, and who doesn't want to lug around a heavy laptop, and who wants their data where they can always access it even if the laptop gets lost or damaged, a Chromebook is the answer.
