HP has launched two new Chromebooks – x360 12b and x360 14b. The two Chromebooks are the first from the company to be USI-compatible, which means they conform to the guidelines of Universal Stylus Initiative standard to build cross device stylus support. Synonymous to the x360 range, the new Chromebooks come with a 360-degree hinge to allow users to fold their laptops completely to use the display in a tablet-like format, or in tent-mode, and just lay it flat on the table.

The Chromebook x360 12b is priced at $359 (roughly Rs. 25,300) and the Chromebook x360 14b is priced at $379 (roughly Rs. 26,700). The HP Rechargeable USI Pen will be sold separately with a price tag of $69.99 (roughly Rs. 5,000). The laptops will be available from this month on HP.com and select retailers. The HP Rechargeable USI Pen will be made available sometime in November.

As for the displays, the HP Chromebook x360 12b sports a 12-inch HD+ display with a 3:2 aspect ratio, touchscreen support and USI-standard compatibility.

There’s a built magnetic pen dock on the new Chromebooks for storing the stylus if required. The HP x360 14b, on the other hand, comes with a 14-inch HD or full-HD screen.

The 12-inch model is rated to offer up to 12 hours of battery life, while the 14-inch model comes down to a modest 10 hours of battery life. Both laptops offer Google Play support, and one year of free Google One subscription. These new products were first reported by Android Police.
