Deal Alert: Two AMD-Powered Chromebook 14s Up For Grabs
Intel has long dominated the Chrome OS market but that dominance was recently given a run for its money when AMD decided it too wanted a piece of the Chrome OS pie. Partnering with HP, Chromebooks get their first taste of AMD processors when the HP Chromebook 14 was launched earlier this year.
Though not groundbreaking –HP used an old 7th APU generation from 2016 in the device–the HP Chromebook 14 can be only be described as a “guinea pig” entry as the company tries to gauge the prospects of using an unfamiliar AMD chipset with a platform that seems to only run on Intel.
If you are looking to get your hands on an HP Chromebook 14, Walmart is offering a discount of up to $79 on the 14-db0043wm model. The variant of the device features an AMD Dual-Core A4-9120C running at 1.8 GHz base clock and up to 2.7 GHz max boost clock, as well as 1 MB cache. The display is equipped with a 14.0-inch diagonal FHD IPS anti-glare WLED panel with resolutions of up to 1920 x 1080.
It has 4 GB DDR4-1866 SDRAM and comes with 32GB of eMMc storage. The device stays on for about 8 hours after fully charged fully making it the perfect all-day companion.
This isn’t an overall amazing deal and will only recommend it for those looking to experience Chrome OS with AMD.
You can get the Chromebook for $199 at Walmart or the touch-capable version that features a 14″ Full HD Touchscreen Display for $229 down from $299.
