Recently, Google and HP introduced Chromebook that has Metallic-build. But what makes the device compete with Apple’s latest 12-inch MacBook.
The device sports some impressive specs like efficient Core M chipset made by Intel, high-resolution screens, and generous RAM. It also houses more than one Type-C port. With this high-end spec, it is a more affordable laptop than Pixel.
Chromebook and MacBook share almost the same hardware specs. Both are made out of metal are available with Core M3, M5, and M7 processors paired with the Intel HS graphics 515 and features 802.11 ac Wi-Fi.
However, both devices have different screen sizes and aspect size ratios. This makes the Chromebook is noticeably wider and deeper than the MacBook. Surprisingly, the device is thinner than the MacBook thinness, despite having many ports.
On the contrary, the 12-inch Apple’s notebook is criticised for having just a single Type C port and a headset jack. The HP-made Chromebook carries two Type-C ports, one USB-A 3.1 port, an SD card slot as well as the 3.5mm input/output port.
Nevertheless, the MacBook runs a “proper” computer operating system, Chrome OS gives good web browser with some added real-OS-like features, notes 9to5 Google.
In terms of storage space, the Apple’s notebook comes with a ton more storage space while Chromebook 13 offers 32GB internal storage regardless of whatever model you buy. Apple’s Retina notebook will come with either 256GB or 512GB flash storage.
While on resolution front Chromebook has the 1080p display on the base Intel Pentium model but, to say, it would be less competitive with the MacBook on the resolution front. That being said, all the three Core M variations arrives with 3200 x 1800 resolution screen, notes GSM Arena.
The device offers a pixel density of around 50 pixels-per-inch more than the MacBook. In addition at 45w, the Chromebook delivers 16W more power than Apple’s Type-C equipped charger.
