New HP Chromebook 11 released

HPChromebook11

Google and HP have partnered up and released a new Chromebook in the lineup.  The HP Chromebook 11 features include an 11.6″ IPS display, Exynos 5250 GAIA  CPU, 2 USB 2.0 ports, 6 hours of battery life, and weighs only 2.3 lbs.  A nice new feature is that it will use a microUSB port for charging, so you can use a microUSB cable you have on hand (although you might need at least a 3A charger).  You also get 100GB of Google Drive storage free for 2 years, a 60-day free trial of Google Play Music All Access ($9.99 after that), and 12 free sessions of GoGo inflight internet.   It comes in white, black, or four color options (blue, green, yellow and red).  It is available for pre-order in the Google Play store for $279.99, as well as online and in-store retailers such as Amazon and Best Buy.  It’s shipping soon!

    I still don’t like the Cromebooks.Only the Pixel is okay,but it’s too pricy.

    Google and HP is a great combination, however it would be interesting to know why Google Chrome book isn’t enough and what makes this more special? After all these machines are mainly for web surfing. 100 gb on google drive is great but what do you do after the 2 year period? $
