HP teamed up with Google to create an affordable Chromebook – Chromebook 11. The new Chrome OS notebook tries to deliver on speed, security and design while carrying an affordable price tag of $279.
Clad in white or black colour with colourful keyboard accents, the Chromebook 11 is equipped with an 11.6-inch IPS Panel display with 1366×768 resolution support, 300nits of brightness and 176 degree viewing angle.
Powering the HP offering is Samsung’s Exyos 5250 GAIA application processor, 2GB RAM and 16GB SSD and features a fanless design, clickable touchpad, VGA webcam, 2 USB 2.0 ports, Bluetooth 4.0, Wi-Fi, microSIM slot for optional data connectivity. Perhaps the best part of the Chromebook is the microUSB charger that can be used to charge the notebook.
Rounding up the features set are digitally tuned speakers, 6 hours of battery life and freebies like 100GB of Google Drive storage for two years, 60 days of free trial of Google Play Music All Access and 12 free sessions of GoGo Inflight internet.
