The mid-size HP Chromebook 14 and 15.6-inch Acer Chromebook 315 both mate AMD's new hardware with up to 1080p touchscreens and, more importantly low prices - both will start at $269, which makes them competitive with Intel-based machines. But while Acer boasted to be the first to announce one such Chromebook, HP will actually have the first bite of that market. There's 32GB of onboard storage, the 35Wh lithium-polymer battery will last for a full school day, and you can use a USB Type-C connection to charge up when you need. The Chromebook Flip C214 will be available in Spring.

As far as the other two products announced, the Chromebook Flip C214 is a 2-in-1 that's powered by a dual-core Intel Celeron and up to 64GB of internal storage that can be expanded via microSD.

Sandra Oh & Andy Samberg Opened the Golden Globes With a Roast
Steve Carell presented Burnett, 85, with the award, billed as the TV equivalent of the prestigious Cecil B. Her red carpet companion, Colin Firth, was equally dashing in a suit teamed with a well-tamed beard.

The new series features durability, spill- and tamper-resistant keyboards and all-around rubber bumpers to withstand bashes and bumps Asus believes the kids of today will inflict on the devices. The new tablet weighs in at 568 grams.

Connections include two USB Type-A port, two reversible USB Type-C ports, a microSD card reader, 802.11ac Wi-Fi, and for video calling a HD webcam. It will have a 14-inch 1,366 x 768 display with a 180-degree hinge, along with 4GB of RAM and 32GB of SSD storage. An all-day battery is promised. During his 6 weeks with the device, senior technical marketing manager for AMD's client business unit Robert Hallock stated that the company's new Chromebook served him well, with at least 10 hours of battery life and the ability to handle H.264 and H.265 encoding. The 14-inch display can either be a 1366×768 non-touch panel or, for an additional $30, a 1920×1080 touch screen. Availability is only described in general terms ("the coming months") with details around configurations and pricing also coming soon.
