AMD this morning announced that it’s bringing Athlon and Ryzen chips to Chrome OS. HP is the first to unveil its AMD-powered Pro c645 Chromebook Enterprise, while also detailing the latest Intel Chromebox G3.
The HP Pro c645 Chromebook Enterprise is a clamshell but does have a 180-degree hinge. This device is silver all-around except for the 14-inch display that’s available in HD or FHD configurations with/without touch. The left and right bezels are narrow, but the bottom is thicker and features the HP logo. There is an HD camera with a privacy shutter (and dual mics) up top.
The keyboard, which has a backlit variant, is spill-resistant with MIL-STD 810H. It’s flanked by two speaker grills. Under-the-hood, it can be configured with the below AMD processors and 4/8/16GB of DDR4 memory, while the storage options are 32/64GB eMMc or 128 GB PCIe NVMe M.2 SSD.
