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...

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!...

High end feel, great bang for your buck!


Last year finally decided to try chromebook. They are so smooth and fast. I had a couple that were solid but the overall build quality was low end. This HP Chromebook 13 is a real winner. The display is great, the size is perfect, the brushed aluminium...

Poorly built for the base model


Please don't buy the base model. It is so poorly built that there are so many flaws from loose pieces inside the screen to uncentered keyboard grinding on the sides of the holes of the aluminum body.
