though prices of laptops have came down significantly as compared to what they were a couple of years ago, they are still not quite as affordable as some may have anticipated. speaking of affordability, if you eat and breathe Cloud (in particular, Google’s kind of Cloud), then we seriously think Chromebooks such as this HP Chromebook 11 might be worthy of your consideration. powered by Google’s Chrome OS, this machine is lightweight and compact, weighing just a little over 2 pounds (2.3 lbs, or 1.024 kilograms, to be exact) and measuring 297 x 192 x 17.6 millimeters, making it an ease to lug around.
packed within its fanless, magnesium chassis are a 11.6″ IPS display with 1,366 by 768 pixel resolution, an Exynos 5250 processor supported by 2GB of RAM, 16GB SSD, a full-size Chrome keyboard, fine-tuned clickable touchpad, an integrated VGA webcam, combined headphone/microphone audio jack, digitally-tuned speakers with sound ported up through the keyboard, a pair of USB 2.0 ports, micro SIM slot (only on 3G and 4G/LTE model), dual-band WiFi (supports up to Wireless n), Bluetooth 4.0, and a 30 Wh battery for up to 6 hours of active usage – recharged via the micro USB port, using the same charger as most Android phones.
in addition to the onboard storage, each purchase comes with two years free 100GB Google Drive cloud storage, plus a 60-day free trial with Google Play Music All Access (which will cost you $9.99 per month after the trial ends). other worthy mentions include super speedy boot up, automatically stays up-to-date and virus-free without you even knowing it, and a super sleek, clean design that has no visible screws, vents, or speakers. the HP Chromebook 11 can be yours to own now for $279.99 and up.
