HP Chromebook 11 returns to Amazon, still priced at $279

by: Andrew GrushDecember 26, 2013


After HP and Google finally resolved their problems with the HP Chromebook 11’s charger, it looks like the Chromebook is now making its triumphant return to stores — at least if you’re shopping via Amazon. The Chromebook 11 is still unavailable at most other retailers, including Best Buy and Google Play, though we wouldn’t be surprised to see this situation change in the coming days.

Back to the Amazon listing, only the white/blue variant of the Chromebook 11 seems to be currently in stock and ready to ship. The pricing is still listed at $279 and the laptop features the same specs as always: a Samasung Exynos 5250 ARM CPU, 2GB of RAM, an 11.6-inch 1366×760 IPS display, 16GB SSD storage, 2x USB 2.0, a VGA webcam and a battery rated for about 6 hours of use.

In addition to getting the revised charger, the Chromebook 11 also comes with 100GB Google Drive storage for 2 years, a 60-day free trial of Google Play Music All Access and 12 free GoGo Inflight Internet passes.

What do you think of the HP Chromebook 11 now that its charger issues are behind it? Can Google and HP still find success with the device, or is the damage already done?

    I think acer c720 chromebook is much better for the price. Has the new intel haswell and 4 gb of ram for 200 bucks on amazon.

      The $200 c720 is the 2GB of ram version. The 4 GB of ram version is $399

        My bad, but the 2 gb version is still faster because of the new intel processor.

      And there will be Haswell equipped Asus Chromebooks out in the first quarter of 2014, starting at $200.

      I love the looks of the HP, but the old processor and lack of micro sd slot for expansion, makes me want to wait to see what other offerings there are.

        I didn’t know about that Asus Chromebook. That looks like a great deal!

    My Chromebook 11 never missed a beat. I used the charger from my Nexus 4 and together we were unbeatable. New charger on the way. Great stuff!
