HP Chromebook 11
Google‘s latest and possibly greatest laptop (to date, of course) looks like the HP Chromebook 11 coming in at a wallet-friendly $279 USD. It’s an 11.6-inch notebook with a bright IPS display, respectable 1,366 x 768-pixel resolution, a dual-core Samsung Exynos 5250 processor, 2GB of RAM, a 16GB SSD, two USB ports, a micro USB port for charging (that can double up as HDMI output with a special cable), and reportedly six hours of battery life. To compensate for the tiny amount of onboard storage, Google is giving away two free years of 100GB cloud-based Google Drive storage. There are clearly many limitations here — no SD card slot, no full-sized HDMI port, no back-lit keyboard, etc. — but at this price, the Chromebook 11 sure looks like a win. See the full specs here.
