HP Chromebook 11 G4 review: This low-cost laptop stands out for its speed and solid construction

 

You can find a lot of affordable Chromebooks, but not many that offer as much quality for the price.

Sturdy ; Affordable ; Decent performance

Plain looking

The HP Chromebook 11 G4 offers clear advantages in quality and performance over other small Chromebooks we’ve tested. It doesn’t matter that it’s designed for students—anyone who’s made a commitment to the Chrome ecosystem will appreciate this sturdy...

Met all expectations

 

grandson wanted this in lieu of Apple tablet. He loves it! Much more user friendly to use a "real" keyboard over the virtual keyboard. I have a similar Chromebook and use it 98% of the time for business.

Nice construction Nice keyboard Nice screen Great price for the listed specs

honestly, no cons for this price range

Productive out of the box!

 

- If you want more than a tablet but don't want the bulk of a large laptop, this is a great choice.

~ As soon as I logged into my google account, I was up and running - Great response on the touchpad - Ease of using printers and removable media - Great battery life

- Wish it came with a mobile power cord

Consumer review (newegg.com)

Exactly what I was looking for!

 

Highly recommended.

I am a owner of a Chromebook and It does everything I need a laptop to do. I bought this one for my mother, knowing that It too would cover all of her needs. With that being said I was pleasantry surprised with the build quality of this product, much...

If you are buying this product expecting a windows or mac experience, you will be disappointed. With that said if you know the limitations of a Chromebook and don't plan on running Linux (This has a celeron processor, and 2GB of memory) there's no...

Easy, easy, easy!

 

Got this for my 67 year old mother and she loves it. Primarily uses it just for web search and email. Now my dad wants one instead of his huge 17 inch laptop!

Easy to set up. Perfect size for travel. Great for web searching and emailing.

Not the most powerful but then again I didn't expect it to be.

Consumer review (newegg.com)

Precisely what I had expected...

 

Great for a student (or anyone for that matter) looking for a cheap laptop (a back up, in my case...) for basic functionality.

Good battery life, small size, and very inexpensive. Great for school and an excellent value.

Not many.

Easy to use simple laptop

 

Got this for 130$ on black friday. (felt like throwing away some money this year) Was skeptical at first but I am pretty happy with my purchase. Very usefull item. This is also my first hp product (aside from a printer that I wasn't a big fan of) and...

Very easy to use and great for recreational use but has minor business applications. I usually use it for youtube SoundCloud pandora netflix but is also useful for documents and minor gaming. Also charges really fast.

Wish the screen was better. I dont mind a 1366x768 screen but the quality and pixel density is far from the best.

Love it

 

Small, light, fast. It came quickly.

I have nothing negative to say. I really am glad I bought a Chromebook and not a 'standard' laptop.

Consumer review (tigerdirect.com)

A little more than a tablet

 

It is a great computer for those who do everything browser based. My kids use it for homework and love the fact it is light and the battery last for hours. They got a free microsoft 365 account from school, one is in H.S the other is in middle school.

HP Chromebook

 

Nice for surfing the web. Purchased for grandson. Should be fine for him. Kind of awkward fro me without the delete, home and end key. Seemed fast for a Celeron with 2GB. Should work well for my grandson.

Very easy setup Light Nice bright screen

No delete, home and end keys.
