Hewlett-Packard on Tuesday extended its partnership with Google with the launch of two new Chromebooks targeted at the business and education market.

HP said the new HP Chromebook 14, which runs on the latest Intel Celeron processors, is targeted at business users looking for "simple, secure, mobile productivity" with an entry-level price of US$299.

The HP Chromebook 14, which will be available through commercial channels in the US, features a 14-inch screen with an HP TrueVision HD Webcam for dynamic chats. It also includes a multiformat digital media card reader for saving and sharing documents, images and video.

HP also announced an ARM processor-based HP Chromebook priced starting at US$279.99 with an 11.6-inch diagonal screen and battery life of up to six hours.

HP said the ARM processor provides near instant startup with access to apps and documents. The ultra-thin ARM-based HP Chromebook is ideal for "students, teachers and on the go professionals or business users," according to HP.

HP said the wide 176-degree viewing angle display and built-in Web cam make it easier to collaborate with classmates or colleagues.

HP said the new Chromebooks come with optional 4G LTE connectivity, 100GB of Google Drive storage free for two years, 12 free sessions of GoGo Inflight Internet and a 60-day free trial with Google Play Music All Access.
