HP Chromebook11: Made with Google


[UPDATE: Click here for a hands-on tour of the new Chromebook11] 



Meet the new HP Chromebook11 – an ultra-portable Chromebook made in close collaboration with Google.  Inspired by the Pixel’s iconic design at an affordable $279.99(estimated street price), it’s made for everyone. The HP Chromebook11 is the first affordable Chromebook with a brilliant IPS display and first Chromebook ever to use USB charging.


The 11.6-inch diagonal IPS screen provides clear images and a wide 176-degree viewing angle, making it easy to share your screen. With USB charging, you can use the same charger to charge your Android phone or tablet.


This Chromebook is portable (2.3 pounds), stylish, has a great screen and long battery life – up to 6 hours!   – while keeping you connected to your favorite apps.   (HP is using Google Chrome OS power_LoadTest.  Battery life will obviously vary and the maximum capacity of the battery will naturally decrease with time and usage. See http://www.chromium.org/chromium-os/testing/power-testing for more info.)


This ultra-thin Chromebook is also gorgeous!  The sleek and lightweight design comes in either a white modern design with blue, red, yellow or green color accents or a more traditional black design, and all come with a cool lightbar on the lid.  It’s super sturdy, with a thermal-bonded magnesium chassis that protects against everyday bumps.  


In short, the HP Chromebook11 is great for everyday use, kicking back on the couch or as a gift for that always-on-the-go friend or family member. It’s also a great device for learning and classrooms, or for games and other fun content.


A quick look at other features:


●      Powerful ARM processor:  Super responsive, the HP Chromebook11 allows you to quickly access your stuff and favorite apps   

●      Digitally-tuned speakers under the keyboard for crisp clear audio

Well I bought one of these before they were pulled from the shelfs at BB.  The charger gets so hot it is scary to use my hands to unplug it from the wall.  I started using another charger but the battery does not seem to hold a proper charge anymore.  The battery runs from fully charged to dead in about an hour now.  Is HP replacing the charger or the entire unit?  What am I supposed to do?
