HP Chromebook 11 review: is this $279 Chrome OS laptop really for everyone?

 

HP's latest offering is one of the best Chromebooks we've seen, combining a great design, a comfortable keyboard and reliable performance for $279.

Sleek, lightweight design ; Comfortable keyboard ; Convenient micro-USB charging

Sticky trackpad ; Chrome OS still offers limited functionality

Writing the pros and cons for a Chromebook review is a tricky task. Aside from the flaky touchpad, the biggest disadvantages -- only 16GB of SSD storage, an operating system largely limited to Google's own ecosystem -- are part of what makes a...

The updated HP Chromebook doesn't bring anything new to the table

 

The "new" Chromebook is available in two new colors, and offers optional 3G connectivity. And there's a new Chromebox desktop, too.

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...

HP Chromebook 11 review: Colorful, but still a budget Chromebook

 

The latest $279 Chromebook is the most attractive yet, but it's best reserved for heavy Web users who crave keyboards.

The ; 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.

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

 

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
