The Chromebook series continues to grow, both in new models and in popularity, thanks in large part to its low price-point and terrific features. Earlier this morning HP introduced the HP Chromebook 11, a new model from HP that offers “speed, simplicity and security benefits you’d expect from a Chromebook,” according to the announcement released earlier today via the twp companies.
The slimmed-down Chromebook weighs a little over two pounds, making it one of the lightest options on the market, and the HP Chromebook 11 is powered by a micro-USB charger, “which can also be used to juice up your Android phone or tablet,” a feature that is actually very convenient.
Google also stated, “A computer should look good—something you’re proud to take out at a coffee shop. So the new Chromebook has a sleek, distinctive and super simple look. The fanless design means it doesn’t need any grills for venting. And it comes in a variety of colors to match your mood (or your wardrobe).”
Other Features Include:
- + Brilliant display. Often when folks gather around a screen, everyone tries to gently nudge the computer in their own direction so they can see better. No more nudging. The new Chromebook’s screen has a 176-degree viewing angles so you can see even when looking at it almost completely sideways. And the super bright display brings all of your favorite photos, shows and videos to life.
- + Light but sturdy. We wanted the Chromebook to hold up well against everyday bumps and bruises. So it has a magnesium frame that makes it incredibly sturdy. You can hold it from a single corner without it bending or flexing.
- + Finely-tuned speakers. Many computers have speakers on the bottom, which is great if you have ears in your lap. Instead, the speakers on the new Chromebook are under the keyboard, which means the sound is crisp, clear and pointed up towards your ears.
- + Goodies built-in. And, of course, many Google apps come built-in, including 100GB of Google Drive cloud storage (free for two years) and a 60-day free trial of Google Play Music All Access.
The new HP Chromebook 11 is available for just $279 and will be available at Best Buy, Amazon, Google Play and HP Shopping in the U.S. More info, pictures and details can be found at amazon.com/chromebook
