Reviews for the HP Chromebook x360 12b-ca0005nf

HP Chromebook x360 12b review: It's affordable and good
Source: Good Gear Guide English
The HP Chromebook x360 12b is a good fit for people who want something affordable, but also noticeably nicer than what kids might use in school. It’s small, light, and versatile, and even comfortable to work on for long periods. I also know I’m going to miss the display’s 3:2 aspect ratio when I go back to a wider-screen laptop.

HP Chromebook x360 12b Review
Source: Mobile Tech Review English
Lisa Gade reviews the 12” HP Chromebook x360, also available in a 14” size. This Chromebook has a classy looking chassis, 360 degree convertible design and a 3:2 aspect ratio touch screen with pen support all for $359. It has a dual core Celeron N4000 processor, IPS HD+ display, USB-C and a microSD card slot. Since it’s a Chromebook, it can also run Android apps and the Google Play Store is pre-installed. If you’re looking for a well-made budget laptop for home schooling, streaming, Google Docs and web, it’s worth a look.

HP's Chromebook x360 12b is a handsome compact convertible that falls short of excellence due to a murky screen and leisurely CPU.

HP Chromebook x360 12B Review
Source: Think Digit English
It’s evident the Chromebook x360 12b is the middle child in HP’s newest Chromebook family, and that gives rise to some inevitable confusion in its identity and placement. The costlier Chromebook x360 comes with better performance (thanks to a Core i3/i5 chip), a clearer display (with Full HD resolution), and a much nicer touchpad (with smoother tracking and keyboard backlighting). It’s what you should get for full-blown Chromebook computing. What this 12-incher borrows from it, then, are the stylish finish, backlit keyboard, and ‘convertible’ display. In other words, the little Chromebook x360 12b inherits the looks and flexibility.

HP Chromebook x360 12B review: Absolute delight for basic computing
Source: India Today English
I have been blessed with a job where I get to play with some of the most exciting and powerful laptops, and speak about them in depth to you. The experience with the HP Chromebook x360 12b has been as joyous any of the exciting RGB toting gaming laptops I have used - only in a slightly different way. The Chromebook x360 12b is an amazing computer for work and entertainment on the go. Chrome OS is well optimised and that means you get a fluid user experience in a laptop that's cheap. The OS is restricted to a few functions but if ticks all those boxes that you seek to be completed, then it's a joy to use.

70% HP Chromebook X360 Review: A lightweight weapon for Web Warriors
Source: Tech PP English
Does it make sense to invest in a Chromebook that is priced in the vicinity of Rs 30,000? HP tries to make a case for its new Chromebook X360. But can it fight off its Windows-laden brethren at similar price points?

Intel UHD Graphics 600: Integrated low-end graphics adapter with DirectX 12 support, which can be found in some ULV SoCs from the Gemini Lake series. Compared to the HD Graphics 500, the 600 offers improved display outputs. Compared to the faster UHD Graphics 605, the 600 offers less shaders at lower clock speeds.

Non demanding games should be playable with these graphics cards.

» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Graphics Cards and the corresponding Benchmark List.


Celeron N4000: Low power dual-core SoC from the Gemini Lake series for inexpensive notebooks. Runs with clocks between 1.1-2.6 GHz and integrates a DirectX 12 capable graphics adapter. » Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.


12":

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.

1.4 kg:

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