The world of Chromebooks has been steadily growing as manufacturers release new computers, but HP’s latest Chrome OS-based devices have me especially excited about the future of the platform.
In early August, HP unveiled two brand new Chrome OS computers, including a Chromebook with a detachable keyboard and a new all-in-one desktop that uses Chrome OS as its primary operating system. Chromebook 2-in-1s and all-in-one desktops aren’t a new thing, but HP’s newest additions are especially exciting because of how much they look to borrow from mainstream devices like the iMac and Apple iPad.
One could even go so far as to say this is the first time we’ve seen a real contender in the Chrome OS area that better lines up with the look and feel of the iPad. This is a part of the computer world Chromebook manufacturers haven’t been digging into much, and doing so could lead to more innovative Chrome-based smart devices.
