NEW YORK (AP) — Google is introducing a new, cheap laptop based on its Chrome operating system.

Hewlett Packard Co. is making the new HP Chromebook 11. It starts selling Tuesday for $279.

Unlike Windows and Mac laptops, Chromebooks rely heavily on having a continuous Internet connection to run Google and other online services. Many apps don’t run directly on the device but over the Internet.

The price of the Chromebook 11 is in line with most other Chromebooks using Chrome OS, but the new model sports many design features that are usually found on pricier devices. The laptop has plastic frame with no sharp edges or corners. Its display is 11.6-inches measured diagonally, and it weighs less than 2 pounds.
