It's a budget-friendly laptop with a lot of color

Google has added a new Chromebook to the family: the HP Chromebook 11.

The Hewlett-Packard Chromebook 11 sports a $279 price tag and targets an audience that simply likes to surf in their browser. 

On the design side, the HP Chromebook 11 offers a white plastic case with different-colored accents (which reflect the colors of Chrome's logo). It's also light at just 2.4 pounds, and has a sturdy magnesium frame. 


The new Chromebook also packs an 11.6-inch IPS display, a Samsung Exynos 5250 processor, 2GB of DDR3 RAM, a 16GB solid-state drive, two USB 2.0 ports, a VGA Webcam, a SlimPort video out, Wi-Fi 802.11n, Bluetooth 4.0, and a micro-USB charger to power both the Chromebook and an Android-powered smartphone or tablet.

There's a 4G version of the Chromebook 11 as well, but the price hasn't been announced yet. 


The HP Chromebook 11 is available starting today at Best Buy, Amazon, Google Play and HP in the U.S. and Currys and PC World in the U.K. It will be available in other countries as well around the holiday season.

RE: $300 just to surf the web? No thanks.

Uh-huh.

And then when you find yourself someplace without an internet connection, what happens?

And you don't see the obvious value in having local storage on a voluminous hard drive?

I find I have very little use for a computer, tablet, smartphone, etc without an internet connection anyways.
