HP Chromebook 11

The Design

In terms of attractiveness, one has to hand it to HP on this one. HP Chromebook 11 looks stylish and feels light at the same time at just 1kg. The body of the computer is designed with polycarbonate material, which means it should be rugged enough to handle usage.

The Chromebook also has a magnesium alloy frame. Although not full size, the chiclet-like keyboard should make for easy typing. The white keyboard area is accentuated by a strip in any of Google colours.

The Display

HP Chromebook 11 is fitted with an 11.6-inch display with a resolution of 1366 x 768 pixels. The panel is based on the In-Plane Switching (IPS) technology, with this meaning that you have a very bright screen here.

In fact, only the way more expensive Google Chromebook Pixel outdoes this one among chromebooks. The glossy screen boasts very wide viewing angles and highly crispy colours.

Performance and OS

HP Chromebook 11 is powered by an Intel Celeron chip. Although the processor is not likely to get a trophy for speed, it is just perfect for the lightweight Chrome operating system that the computer runs on.

The HP Chromebook 11 comes with 2GB or 4GB of RAM and a paltry 16GB of integrated storage, though supported with 100GB of cloud storage on Google Drive. The Chrome OS boots very fast and is perfect for web tasks, which explains why it is the choice platform for cloud-reliant computers such as this.

Other Features

Ingenuity is displayed in the placement of the speakers on the chromebook. These loudspeakers can be found beneath the keyboard, ensuring that sound muffling is reduced. Interfaces provided on the HP Chromebook 11 include two USB ports and a microUSB charging port that also serves as a Slimport video output. But there's no SD card slot.

Pricing and availability
