Today’s Deal over at Amazon is a great one for those of you who are looking for a solid performing 11″ Chromebook. The HP Chromebook 11 G4 is down to $174.89 at Amazon and that is for the 4GB of RAM model with 16GB of storage. I reviewed this Chromebook back in February and it remains my day-to-day Chromebook. I have to say it is one of the best 11″ Chromebooks I have had the privileged to test and review. It’s performance is solid, the keyboard is smooth and responsive, as is the trackpad. I found the display to be very good for an 11″ device while the battery life, for some, will be lacking. All that said though, with a price of $200 for the 4GB, 16GB of storage model on Amazon, it is hard to beat. I have no hesitation in recommending it for the vast majority of readers.
As I put in that review, the only knock on the Chromebook 11 G4 is the battery life which will only get you through about 8 hours of usage. Other similarly sized Chromebooks get you to 11-12
hours in some cases. You have to decide if that is a big deal or not. For me, it’s never been an issue as Chrome OS has continually improved on how it consumes battery and frankly, I’m usually not away from an electrical outlet for 8 hours at a time – even on airplanes.
If the 4GB model is a bit much for what you need, there is also a 2GB model that has dropped in price. That model is down to $156.90 and it also has 16GB of Storage. Either way you won’t go wrong with this great Chromebook but if you can pop for the extra RAM, you’ll appreciate it later.
Regardless of which model you decide to get, both are eligible for Prime free shipping if you are an Amazon Prime customer.
