The Chromebook 11 weighs in at just 2.3-pounds and measures in at 0.7-inches thick. This lightweight design is accomplished thanks to a plastic exterior shell which surrounds a magnesium frame that provides strength and rigidity. The Chromebook 11 retails for $279, and is available to order from Google Play, Best Buy, Amazon, and direct from HP today.
