HP Chromebook 13 G1

 

The HP Chromebook 13 G1 is a premium laptop that's thin, stylish, well built, and primed to help you get the most out of Google and other online business services.

Thin and light. Fanless Core m5 processor. 3,200-by-1,800-resolution IPS screen. Two USB-C ports.

No HDMI port. Pricey. Limited local storage.

The HP Chromebook 13 G1 fulfills the promises made by the Google Chromebook Pixel. It has the power to do real work, with a higher-than-full-HD screen. Yes, you will pay a lot for this version, but it is made of sturdy metal, yet is one of the thinnest...

HP Chromebook 13 G1 Core m5 Notebook Review

 

A Pixel Competitor… Premium materials, meticulous design, a high-res screen, and great performance. HP seeks to redefine the Chromebook with the closest thing we've seen to a Pixel since Google first introduced it.

great build quality, sleek metal casing, very good keyboard, QHD+ screen standard, speedy performance, two USB Type-C ports

pricey (as reviewed), pixel layout results in jagged edges at higher resolutions, integrated touchpad buttons are only decent, maintenance requires removal of rubber feet

Right from the outset, it’s clear that the HP Chromebook 13 G1 represents a major addition to the Chrome OS portfolio. Although affordability remains a focus, HP has clearly prioritized design, aesthetics, and ergonomics in tandem. The result is a...

A great ChromeOS experience comes at a price.

Great chromebook

 

I like it very much and just wanted to point out that I am one of those people who don't want a touch screen. Glad to see HP is offering this as a non-touch screen. Probably this is one of the reasons they were able to offer a premium product at a low...

Feels like a full computer, not a cheap chromebook

 

My daughter has been pretty pleased with this after 3 weeks. Screen quality is great; bright enough to use in most circumstance outside. We like the USB-C. Battery life and portability have been assets as well.

Very pleased with my 1st Chromebook

 

I have several laptop from HP and they are always reliable. This Chromebook is well worth the cost. It is thin, well built, and fast. Display is excellent. Highly recommend this Chromebook.

This is a well made laptop with some issues

 

I love the screen resolution, the build quality and the speed that I get with the processor. I am not in love with the touchpad as it stalls every so often, especially when trying to make small movements. I am also not thrilled by the reflection that...

Love it!

 

The Google OS took some getting used to, but I love everything about this Chromebook. It's extremely fast, light weight, easy to use, works great with all my Android-OS devices, and has a great battery life.

Great Chromebook!

 

This is a very fast, well made and premium feeling Chromebook. The core m5 with 8GB of RAM is more than sufficient for my needs. The keyboard is backlit and performs well. The track pad is fine but I wish it was a little larger. The screen is gorgeous!...
