Looking for a new computer to help you navigate the Internet during this quarantine? HP has added two new Chromebooks to its lineup that it hopes will convince you.

The two devices, a 14-inch model called HP Chromebook x360 14c and an 11.6-inch one called the HP Chromebook 11a will be available at Best Buy and on the HP website later this month. Starting prices will be $ 499 for the x360 14c and $ 219 for the 11a.

Presenting as its “most premium Chromebook to date,” the x360 14 features a 14-inch full HD edge-to-edge glass touchscreen, HD webcam (although HP did not mention the specific resolution) with a Physical privacy to cover when not in use, a fingerprint reader and Wi-Fi 6 support. It also has two USB-C ports, a USB-A port and a traditional headphone jack.

Since it is an x360 model, this laptop can rotate its screen to become a tablet.
