HP India has announced the launch of its latest Chromebook, geared at budget notebook buyers not looking for powerful solutions. The latest generation HP Chromebook 11a brings adequate specifications to deliver an all-round online work experience, as long as your work largely involves staying within the Google ecosystem of apps and services. One of the key features of the Chromebook 11a include a one-year Google One subscription that is bundled for free, and offers access to Google’s premium apps and services, along with 100GB additional free cloud storage.

HP Chromebook 11a: key specifications

The Chromebook 11a from HP is powered by a MediaTek MT8183 SoC that is designed specifically for Chromebooks – featuring an octa-core setup with four Cortex-A73 cores for high performance tasks, and a Mali-G72 integrated GPU. It gets 4GB RAM and 64GB eMMC flash-based native storage, with an expansion slot that supports memory cards of up to 256GB. It gets an 11.6-inch HD LCD display that offers no new generation frills such as minimal bezels or extra-wide aspect ratios, but instead gets the bare functionalities correct.

Other specifications include a 37Whr battery that claims 16 hours of usage time, and a port selection of USB-A, USB-C and 3.5mm physical audio connectivity. The HP Chromebook 11a also gets an HD webcam, and wireless connectivity chops include Wi-Fi 5 and Bluetooth 5.0. The laptop weighs 1.05kg, and being a basic end device, does not feature a backlit keyboard. It also supports voice control and commands with the integrated Google Assistant.

As is expected from most Chromebook PCs, the HP Chromebook 11a brings in specifications that are tailored for basic use cases such as video conferencing or education related tasks. The laptop will ideally suit users who work mostly using Google’s services, and do not require extensive third party app support in a more open environment. For the latter use case, budget Windows laptops would make for better alternatives.

Price and availability in India

The HP Chromebook 11a will be sold exclusively via the Flipkart online e-commerce channel. The device is priced at Rs 21,999, and can be purchased in a single, Indigo Blue colour variant. Sales of the Chromebook 11a has begun from earlier today, April 6.
