Tomahawk, WI 10/10/2013 (BasicsMedia) – If there is one thing which Google Inc (NASDAQ:GOOG) has proven in the past, is that it can’t be expected to limit itself only to a few industries. This company is always looking for new products and industries to invest in. Perhaps this is one of the reasons which have turned it into a major attraction to all investors. It recently announced that it was going into the wellness industry by investing in Calico. Now, it has just announced that it is partnering with Hewlett-Packard to introduce a laptop which only runs on Chrome OS. Will this new deal work well?

 GOOG Continues in its Path of Innovations

Regardless of what you might think regarding GOOG, one thing you can’t take away from it is the aggression and innovation. I don’t see GOOG struggling as long as it continues coming up with new products to compliment its efforts as a technology based company with a solid reputation when it comes to search engines. There are very few search engines which enjoy a global appeal the way Google does. The company has been able to use this to its benefit by creating pay per click ads which have seen its revenues rise to previously unimaginable heights.

New Laptop to Cost Only $279

The laptop which GOOG makes in conjunction with Hewlett-Packard is to cost only $279 a piece. This is much lower bearing in mind that some of its features are those usually found on pricier models such as those which cost upwards of $1,000. However, its price is quite comparable with what you will always pay when you invest in Chrome OS notebooks. The biggest difference between this laptop and others, is that it needs the Internet in order for users to get access to Gmail services, Google Docs and several other Google-related online services.

What this Chromebook laptop does better than other commonly used laptops is that it you don’t have to worry about installing expensive software. As long as you are online, that is all that you need to operate the apps found in the Chrome OS. It is a much better alternative to those who are tired of working with Mac or Windows laptops. If you are also looking for a better alternative to Microsoft Office, you will get it in these laptops. This alternative comes in the shape of QuickOffice, which as recently as 2012 was purchased by Google and comes already installed.

 Laptop Deal Benefits Both Companies, But HP More than Google

 This move is good for the two companies. While GOOG has been doing quite well, Hewlett-Packard hasn’t enjoyed similar positive reports. The company has been struggling ever since the sale of PCs dropped. The fact that it can now work with a globally recognized company such as GOOG, and which is a market leader in the technology industry, will probably do a lot of wonders to HP. I would say that HP stands to benefit from this deal than GOOG, which will use this to market itself more as a company which is not afraid to come up with new products.

All in all, it is yet another bold move from GOOG.
