We're getting a chance to take a look at HP's Chromebook 11: a lightweight and portable notebook that features Google's browser-based Chrome OS, and SlimPort technology. The Chromebook 11 makes use of an ARM processor, which should provide long battery life and cool operation, albeit at a cost of performance.
The styling of the notebook is reminiscent of the older plastic shell MacBooks, but definitely has a Google flair added to it, which is something we will go into more detail about later on in the review.
Specifications, Configurations and Pricing
HP's Chromebook 11 runs an ARM processor, making it completely incompatible with Windows. The Chromebook 11 runs an Exynos 5 Dual 5250. This ARM chip runs nice and cool, making the Chromebook 11 completely fanless.
The Exynos 5 Dual is paired with 2GB of DDR3 RAM, which should allow you to open multiple web pages without too much issue.
Chrome OS is installed upon a tiny 16GB SSD, which makes local storage nearly non-existent. You'll need an external drive to store much of anything, or you'll need to turn to a cloud storage solution. The only issue with a cloud storage solution is the lack of access when without Internet.
It also comes with the usual laptop accoutrements: a VGA webcam, dual-band 802.11 a/b/g/n Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 4.0, and will eventually be available with Verizon LTE connectivity.
The display is an 11.6-inch IPS panel with a 1366x768 display resolution. Google and HP claim a 176-degree viewing angle, but this didn't seem to be the case in my testing and use.
