Model:

The first HP Chromebook 11 was supposed to be a more affordable version of the Chromebook Pixel. The latest revision dubbed the HP Chromebook 11-2081no is moving ever more slightly away than the original plan.

The biggest difference is the change from an IPS display to a normal LCD screen. The biggest draw for the older HP 11 was its IPS display, taking it out means it is now the same as the other Chromebooks. And since the price tag is still the same, this revision now has less value for money.

It still runs with the same dual-core 1.7 GHz Samsung Exynos 5 and 2 GB of RAM, but the graphics card is now an AMD Radeon R7 M260 instead of the ARM Mali-T604. Don't expect blazing performance, although you will only be using it mainly to browse and work in the cloud, it will get laggy if you have too many tabs open due to the slow processor.

The battery is claimed to give you around 6 hours of mixed use but it is closer to 4-5 hours on a single charge. The advantage is of course it uses a micro-USB charger, which you can use to charge your smartphones as well. It kept its clean sleek design and it is still among the lightest Chromebooks available.

ARM Mali-T604 MP4: Four core version of the T604 with support for OpenGL ES 3.0 and DirectX 11.

Only some 3D games with very low demands are playable with these cards.

11.6":

This screen diagoal is quite large for tablets but small for subnotebooks. Some convertibles are also represented with that size.

Large display-sizes allow higher resolutions. So, details like letters are bigger. On the other hand, the power consumption is lower with small screen diagonals and the devices are smaller, more lightweight and cheaper.

1.2 kg:

This weight is typical for big tablets, small subnotebooks, ultrabooks and convertibles with a 10-11 inch display-diagonal.
