The HP Chromebook 13 comes with an Intel Core M7 Skylake processor as a default. But it can be configured with a 1920 x 1080 pixel display, 4GB or 8GB of RAM, and there are processor options which include a Pentium 4405Y, Core M3, and Core M5 processor.

It is all packaged in a nice looking anodized aluminum case and the computer measures 12.6? x 8.6? x 0.5.? It weighs about 2.9 pounds.
There are a few optional accessories such as an HP Elite USB-C docking station which allows you to connect two external displays as well as other accessories. There is a USB-C to HDMI, VGA, or USB 3.0 adapter.
HP isn’t the first company to offer a decent spec Chrome OS laptop. Google’s own Chromebook Pixel has a starting price of $999, and Dell’s Chromebook 13 sells for $450 and up. But the HP Chromebook 13 is good because of its high number of configuration options and the fact it is pretty cheap.
