It features a nice 11.6-inch IPS display at 1366×768 resolution at a 16:9 aspect ratio. The HP Chromebook 11 is powered by Samsung’s Exynos 5250 GAIA processor, paired with 2GB of DDR3 RAM, and a 16GB of Solid State Drive for your storage. Check out more features and specifications, as well as where you can buy one, and be sure to watch the video review below.
Before getting the new HP Chromebook 11, be sure that you know what you are getting into first. Chromebooks, despite their appearance as a really portable Notebook, are not Ultrabooks or Laptops that run on Windows OS. They run on Chrome OS and compared to Windows notebooks they have lesser productivity tools or apps. Their primary functions are web browsing, sending and receiving emails, or watching movies online or on file. It’s basically targeted to people who are looking for a cheaper alternative, who needs to access the internet or the web, and who are looking for more functionality than tablets can’t offer.
The HP Chromebook 11 is the successor of the previous Samsung Chromebook, which by the way is currently the number 1 best-selling notebook on Amazon for quite some time now. And believe it or not, the HP’s version has already made it to the top 5 best-selling notebooks just after a few days of its release. And I’m pretty sure it will replace its predecessor soon. Well, nothing much to say about this new device, check out the specifications table below for more information about this product, and be sure to watch the HP Chromebook 11 review video below.
