HP Chromebook x360 11 is now no longer just for students
Previously reserved for school students, HP has now made its Chromebook x360 11 available for purchase by regular consumers. The ruggedized notebook is a popular choice with both schools and students. With Chromebooks now supporting Android apps, HP looks to have spotted an opportunity to get behind these sometimes underrated devices once again. As a 2-in-1 convertible with a touchscreen, the HP Chromebook x360 is also particularly well-placed to take advantage the Google Play Store.
Key specs for the base model include:
- Dual-core Intel Celeron N3060 1.6GHz up to 2.4GHz
- 4 GB LPDDR3-1600 RAM
- 16 GB of eMMC storage, expandable with microSD card
- 11.6-inch HD SVA anti-glare WLED display 1366 x 768 pixles
- Wi-Fi 80211ac
- 2-cell 43.7 Wh li-ion battery
- Full-size island-style keyboard
- Weight of 2.54 pounds
While there are better Chromebooks out there like the excellent Samsung Chromebook Plus, the HP x360 is a good place to start if you’re curious about the new capabilities of Google’s Chrome OS. US customers can purchase the base configuration from US$300.
