All you want to know about HP ChromeBook 11

Google and HP collaboratively launched the HP Chromebook 11 for $279 very recently. This is the next in the series of Chromebook and is inspired by Chromebook pixel’s design. Google and HP collaborated on the design of the new Chromebook which can be called as a successor to last year’s Chromebook from Samsung with the same processor and other specifications. The improvement in this new Chromebook 11 is specifically about design and fine tuning, it has a very sturdier new magnesium frame. It is a beautiful device with its clean looks and portable leanings, which are really attractive points in the price of $279. The little 2.3 pound Chromebook is aiming to raise the bar as it has more refined look and feel than the previous entry level cloud based laptops and also it has worked on all the limitations of the previous iterations.



Its pearly white tent and reflective plastic body is so far the best Chromebook design in this price bracket. May it be the lid or the gaps between its Chiclets-style keys, at every angle light bounces off the Chromebook 11. A strip of Google’s trademark colors is seen on the backside of the lid; it lights up when in open position. It will certainly not blow you away but the keyboard offers adequate travel and decent spacing between its full-size keys. The matte trackpad is responsive and supports two finger scrolling and three finger tab switching. The best feature in this new Chromebook is the micro-USB slot used to charge the device.


The 11-inch sharp display with 1366×768 resolution provides wide viewing angles of 176 degrees, to be exact. The new IPS panel, provides you with deep blacks and makes colors ‘pop’. The OS’s animations or the switching from full-screen to windowed mode or the taskbar fading out are really appealing and better than previous versions. This display can be called one of the most finest display in this price range.


The new HP Chromebook is powered by a dual-core Samsung Exynos 5250 processor backed by 2GB DDR3 RAM. This specs doesn’t slowdown the system at all and works like opening apps and windows or waking up immediately from sleep mode are quiet speedy. With 2.3 pound the Chromebook is quiet portable and comes with 16GB of internal storage, though Google provides you with 100GB of cloud storage. The battery last up to 6hrs of active use as it runs on 30Wh battery. The connectivity specifications are Dual-band WiFi 802.11a/b/g/n and Bluetooth 4.0 and Verizon LTE connectivity is optional or coming soon.
