HP, here at an event at the Google’s office in New York, unveiled the Chromebook 13. Google mentioned that they had contributed to the design of this Chromebook. Well, it is not new because, since a long time, Google is trying to show that Chrome OS is best even for the high-end machines and the Chrome ecosystem makes them more attractive! As an example, we can take the Chromebook Pixel, which is a year old but is still priced at 999$ ( Rs.66.000).
