About this deal

If you're on the bleeding edge of technology you'll be upset to hear this model lacks any sort of USB Type-C port. Like last year’s model, it’s not the fastest computer ever, nor the best-designed, nor the most capable. The storage amount isn’t a heck of a lot, but with microSD support and Google Drive built into the OS, you should be able to live with it. You could install Steam for Linux, Minecraft, Dropbox, and all the typical applications that work on the Linux desktop, using them alongside Chrome OS.

While this Chromebook features a 720-pixel high-resolution front-facing camera, the actual quality was generally underwhelming during video chatting.

And without more power and better performance, it’s really hard to recommend to anyone as their primary laptop. There’s no mechanical storage inside the Chromebook 11, instead settling on a 16GB eMMC solution (once again provided by SanDisk) that enables extremely fast boot and predictable application launch times.

Under heavy load the machine does get surprisingly warm, with the upper left region of the Chromebook 11 hitting 46C in my testing - a reminder of just how much power a pair of ARM Cortex A15 cores can draw under load. The HP Chromebook 11 earned a 123 on the Performance Test, which measures a Chromebook’s ability to stream video, edit photos, and play games.

Save for the shiny HP logo and Chrome logo on the lid, the laptop is predominantly a gunmetal grey slab when the lid is closed. The Chromebook 11 is available in black (no accents), or white with four accent colors (blue, red, yellow or green). Google’s vastly improved its offline capabilities, so that everything from Gmail to Docs to a lot of packaged apps work great without an internet connection. Affordable collaboration at school and work has never been so easy with Intel® processors long battery life and an optional HD IPS panel.

It helps to be a savvy Google/Android user, but anyone can pick up this laptop and find it easy to use for streaming, homework, and web browsing. A high-scoring, inexpensive Chromebook should not be compared directly to a high-scoring, expensive gaming laptop. The HP Chromebook is more advanced in terms of network connectivity than other inexpensive Chromebooks or notebooks. Each test would go through the entire process, but once a test was finished and the app calculated the results, it would crash.

Bass tones were richer with music and I didn’t need to turn the volume up as high to escape the far-away listening experience I noticed when I did not tune in with headphones. When you choose SHI as your IT solutions provider, you receive access to a breadth of industry-leading products and services from our ecosystem of technology partners – each backed with SHI's expertise and world class support. These scores mean that this laptop is spill-resistant and can withstand tumbles from a little over 2 feet onto concrete.

There are four rubber feet on the bottom of the Chromebook 11 that do a good job of preventing the laptop from scooting around while typing.

Enhance visual connections during collaboration and group discussions with an optional IPS panel for a wide viewing angle. Performance and clock frequency will vary depending on application workload and your hardware and software configurations.
