Review HP Chromebook 11

 

Affordability and style. No one will accuse HP's latest Chromebook of neglecting its appearance; as far as plastic devices go, it's an attractive contender. But at just $279, is it even possible to supply the parts necessary for adequate performance? ...

Good build quality and impression for a budget machine; Bright IPS screen; Comfortable keyboard; Extremely portable size and weight; Charges using Micro USB (3.0 A); Fast boot and resume times; Completely silent; Great audio for its size

Nearly all functionality requires an internet connection; Sluggish overall performance due to weak CPU; Tiny (8 GB) local storage; Very warm under load; Chrome OS feels very limited and unfinished; Only apps from the Google Play store are compatible

Stated another way, while the build quality, screen, and input devices are superior to that of most other Chromebooks, there are probably better choices out there than the Chromebook 11 for most intended uses. If you’re just browsing the internet, it’s...

HP Chromebook 11 Review

 

It's hard for Chromebooks to stand out when they all have the same easy-to-use OS. In the case of HP's Chromebook 11 G4 (starting at $199, $239 as tested), a satisfying keyboard and solid build quality help distinguish it from the pack. In the 11-inch...

HP Chromebook 11 (Verizon LTE)

 

The HP Chromebook 11 (Verizon LTE) builds upon a slim and stylish design with a mobile internet connection that frees the Chromebook from the limitations of Wi-Fi.

Has 4G LTE capability. Sleek design. Solid construction. Bright In-Plane Switching (IPS) display.

Limited port selection. LTE performance varies widely.

Conclusion The HP Chromebook 11 (Verizon LTE) takes everything we love about the Chrome-OS family—low priced, Web-connected, extremely simple devices—and adds the freedom that only 4G LTE can provide. It's not a perfect solution, of course, but any...

Following the Acer C720, which we recently reviewed , HP has brought its own new Chrome OS-harboring laptop to the market, the Chromebook 11. Unlike some of the other Chromebooks that are available, HP has elected to aim its focus on the design aspect...

The HP Chromebook 11 is a mixed bag, and whether it will work for any given user depends ultimately on what their needs are and where they are willing to sacrifice. If you’re a business user, there is little incentive to use the Chromebook 11, in that...

HP Chromebook 11 Review

 

We're in the midst of a netbook renaissance. Armed with lighter weight OSes, faster hardware and a better appreciation for what matters in a consumer device, OEMs are giving the concept another try.

If you’re looking for the Chromebook 11 to last you for 5 years, I’d be very concerned about you running out of CPU power well before then. For lighter use you’ll be fine, but with things like the

HP Chromebook 11

 

If you've been thinking about a Chromebook, HP's Chromebook 11 might be the one that sways you thanks to a slim and stylish design, lots of complimentary extras, and battery life to take you through the day.

Extremely affordable sub-$300 price. Sleek design and solid construction. Lots of extras, like free Google Drive space, free music, and complimentary in-flight internet. Bright IPS display. Solid battery life. Micro USB charging is an unexpected...

Minimal port selection, even for a Chromebook. Performance lags slightly behind other models. Chrome OS still has some limitations.

Conclusion The HP Chromebook 11 isn't perfect, with all of the limitations of any other Chrome OS device (though those limitations are likely fewer than you might imagine). The inexpensive laptop does, however, manage to bring some new and improved...

HP Chromebook 11 review: Google gives the low end some much-needed luster

 

It's white! It comes with cute color accents! ...How the heck do you clean this thing? The latest and most colorful Chromebook, jointly launched by Google and HP, puts a fetching face on a model that's otherwise similar to other low-priced Chromebooks...

Beautiful design ; Lightweight and compact

Letterbox-scaled display feels cramped ; Touchpad's two-finger scrolling is balky ; Battery lasted just four hours in our tests

HP Chromebook 11 review

 

Editor's note, January, 29, 2014: Updated with details on the LTE version and the recalled AC charger for the original Chromebook 11.

The HP Chromebook 11 has a sharp design, comfortable keyboard, bright IPS display, and loud speakers; it also works with Chromecast for living-room media sharing.

Nothing much new under the hood: only 16GB of storage, no SD card slot, and it drops the regular HDMI port that the otherwise similar $250 Samsung Chromebook had. No touch screen. Chromebook still not great as offline-ready device.

A fresh look and comfortable feel make HP’s 11-inch budget Chromebook an appealing bet, especially for households that need a cheap no-frills Web-surfing Google Netbook. If you’re not thinking about productivity, though, you’re better off with a tablet.
