The latest version of the 14­inch Chromebook 14 is powered by an Nvidia Tegra K1 processor, paired with 4GB of RAM. It also sports a healthy 32GB of internal storage. Connectivity options on the Chromebook include USB 3.0, HDMI port, Wi­Fi and Bluetooth 4.0.

It's not clear whether HP has any plans to launch the 14­inch FHD touch­enabled premium Chromebook in India. So far, Google's Chromebook devices have failed to make a huge dent amongst Indian buyers.

Steep pricing and tough competition from Windows­operated machines are some of the reasons why Google hasn't able to expand the availability of Chromebooks in India. Ironically, Chromebooks are doing way better in a number of developed countries.

In Q3 2014, IDC (via The Financial Times) notes that Google shipped 715,500 units of Chromebooks to U.S. schools while Apple shipped 702,000 iPads.
