About this deal
My experience on this laptop, as you could have guessed from the Geekbench experience, is that not all Android apps run properly. Generally, anything I watched or listened to—dialogue and music—sounded stifled or tinny without headphones. This HP Chromebook 11 G8 comes with ChromeOS pre-installed - this is not a Windows laptop however it benefits from all the advantages of the Chrome OS system. The internal magnesium frame helps reduce flex, and I’m happy to say that the result is one solid feeling device. ports, a headphone jack, and a charging port — all sit on the left-side edge, where they’re much easier to find than on the back of last year’s model.
On a separate day, I logged 10 full hours of continuous YouTube video streaming before the battery died.
SM123456 - Wednesday, October 16, 2013 - link The only gripe I have with the HP Chromebook 11 is the shorter 6 hr battery life compared with the 8hr battery life of the Acer 720 due to the HP's brighter screen and 2 cell battery instead if the Acer's 3 cell battery, even though the passively cooled HP draws less power than the Acer. The picture was very fuzzy with my chat recipient, who also could barely hear me, even when I inched closer to the microphone, located to the right of the camera. Android apps take a little bit longer than I’d like to launch and fully open, but not enough to be aggravating to the point where I can’t get anything done. The Acer Chromebook 11 has a battery capacity of up to 12 hours, while HP guarantees up to an additional 30 minutes of battery life.
HP’s smartest move was making the charger a Micro USB port, and including an ultra-powerful USB charger with the Chromebook 11 that works with phones and tablets too. Affordable collaboration at school and work has never been so easy with Intel® processors long battery life and an optional HD IPS panel.
The feet also lift the laptop off your desk a bit, giving the speakers enough room to pump out some jams without muffling things. There are four rubber feet on the bottom of the Chromebook 11 that do a good job of preventing the laptop from scooting around while typing. A high-scoring, inexpensive Chromebook should not be compared directly to a high-scoring, expensive gaming laptop.
While this Chromebook features a 720-pixel high-resolution front-facing camera, the actual quality was generally underwhelming during video chatting. In addition to impressive battery performance, the HP Chromebook 11 consistently took just a little over 90 minutes to recharge.
Google’s vastly improved its offline capabilities, so that everything from Gmail to Docs to a lot of packaged apps work great without an internet connection. Otherwise, even slightly beyond a centered viewing angle, everything on the screen was overtaken by shadow. Google and HP read from the same playbook, crafting the Chromebook 11 out of glossy plastic on top of a magnesium alloy frame. hours of battery life give you attractive power and superb all-day portability, perfect to take along and show off wherever you go.
