Higher End ChromeBook
Not bad for my first ChromeBook. The OS learning curve was minor and I would recommend this when on sale, which it regularly is.
* Detachable keyboard allows it to be a laptop or tablet
* 8GB of RAM makes it run smoothly
* Battery seems to be able to make it to at least 10 hours of use
* Chrome OS will be updated for many more years
* Fairly slim bezels
* No backlit keyboard
* The backcover is held on magnetically and makes the tablet heavy
* The keyboard/mouse does not work properly unless on a flat surface (so don't use it on your lap)
* Sometimes the on-screen keyboard will not pop up and I have to reboot to get it back
* The screen is nice but I miss the deep blacks and more vibrant colors of an OLED
* The battery is long lasting but I have noticed that it drains when off at a rate higher than my other computers & tablets
* Chrome OS is easy to use but a bit different from Windows & Android, like 2 finger scrolling going in the opposite direction
* Not all apps are compatible and some look weird
I would recommend this to a friend

I Really Tried To Like It…
Owned for 1 week when reviewed.
First impressions out the box I really loved how the device looked. A few days into having it I started noticing problems with the item. Screen unresponsive at times. Green line under certain videos playing. Then after 3 days of having it I looked in the settings and it showed battery capacity was at 96% after having it just 3 days. Battery drained very fast. Device was defected so I ended up returning and going with a different tablet. If you’re going to buy this device get it on sale not at retail price. It’s not worth it and it won’t last.
I wanted to wait to write a review after using this device. But I didn't get that chance. I actually purchased for school in December. I powered it on and it seem to work fine so I put it away. I start class today and it will not power on. I'm outside of the return date by 9 days so there's nothing that Best buy can do for me. Worst purchase ever. Do not buy! Just a month and a half old.
No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Way better than last one
Owned for 1 week when reviewed.
My old laptop was very bad. I needed a new laptop to fit my needs and not stand out so I could use it in class. This chromebook is the perfect size, you CAN use the laptop on your lap (works great), and the magnets are really cool. The chromebook is not heavy. It is a touchscreen, with a fingerprint sensor on the top as a power button also. The stylus works great, although when drawing, sometimes you have to tap it a couple times for it to press a button. It is fast, and has my old pictures from old phones (google account). It also connects to wifi my old laptop wouldn't connect to before. I would recommend.
The Lenovo Chromebook Duet was my gateway Chrome OS device last year. I loved the form factor, but the screen size and performance and screen size was lacking for a business machine. I follow Chrome Unboxed and they kept talking about a device called "CoachZ" that turned out to be this device. Once I got the notice this was available at Best Buy, I immediately sold my Duet and pounced on this beauty. The overall build quality is a massive step up from the Duet, along with upgraded specs in every way. If you're looking for a Surface Pro style convertible with Chrome OS, this is the way to go!
Coming from the HP X2 chromebook, I was excited about this model because I really liked the previous version. I really want to give this chromebook 5 stars, but there are some drawbacks that kept me from doing so. Overall it is a convenient, extremely portable "do most of it all" machine that can almost be a daily driver for the average user, but is probably more suited as a travel/commuting companion.
Pros: Battery life is pretty decent. I haven't timed it, but I put this Chromebook to work streaming music and working on documents and it will last me about 6-7 hours (over the course of two days, not all in one session). I am a teacher, so my use case is mostly browsing online and using Google suite for presentations and lesson plans. As an android user, this Chromebook serves as an extension of my phone. I receive and respond to most notifications I get on my mobile device straight from this Chromebook. I do occasionally stream content, but not daily.
The small form factor appealed to me. I have bigger than average hands, so typing on the small keyboard was a compromise I was willing to make. I love that the pen attaches magnetically to the side and charges. This solution is much better and the magnet is very strong. The design of this detachable is well thought out. The back plate that doubles as a stand is sturdy. When in tablet mode, it is just the right size, though I didn't mind the size of my X2 which was a little bigger at 12 inches.
Cons; Cramped keyboard. I make do with the keyboard as I do not have to type out anything lengthy on it. It is a bit flimsy and not the easiest to use on your lap, but its possible. The processor isn't the snappiest. I often experience quirky hiccups here and there. Sometimes when trying to wake up the device, it'll have to go through a full reboot to turn on. It won't respond unless I hold down the power button for about 20 seconds. The plus is that it will restore all of my tabs just as they were. Switching between tabs isn't always the smoothest as there will be lag from time to time. Full disclosure, I keep a lot of tabs open, like a lot, so your experience may vary. The speakers aren't great. They are very tinny, but still good enough for background music while you are working. Don't expect to get lost in the music or anything.
Getting this device at the right price is crucial. I got it on sale around $299, plus had some rewards that brought the price down even lower. At $300 or less, I think this device is a strong deal.
I had the Chromebook for about a month. It worked great. Touche screen worked. Chrome OS was really cool and lightweight. Stylus was awesome. Then mysteriously the stylus stopped working. The touchscreen worked, just not the stylus. Which was half the reason that I bought the machine.
So, I contacted HP Support. Which was a nightmare. I spoke to someone overseas. Who ran me through hard resetting and power washing the machine (which is factory default). That did not help. Then he transferred me to a message that said that they were closed. I contacted HP chat support and requested a new stylus. They seemed confused. They did not appear to know that there was a stylus offered with this model. Regardless, they asked me to download login me in onto my windows computer or mobile phone. This was "So we could continue troubleshooting." Why they would need access to my files on my phone or windows computer is beyond me. I refused and ended up arguing with HP Support on Facebook for several days.
In the end, I have a new Chromebook with a working stylus. I just hate that it had go down like that. Best Buy has been awesome in replacing the Chromebook. HP needs to work on its customer support.
I have been using Chromebook 2 years, I had a powerful one plus the old Lenovo Chromebook Duet, however the Lenovo one is too weak for my work, and it's almost not possible to connect external display (1080p 30Hz, where to find?)
Here are some thoughts after using it for a week:
1. It comes with USI pen, and similar to Apple Pencil Gen 2 it's possible to stick to right side (magnetic) and charge (My Asus C436 and Lenovo Duet have to find a way to store them separately)
2. Keyboard is kind of normal laptop layout, with clicking like mechanical keyboard I felt very comfortable even when working long time with it. There are complains about the keyboard surface not hard enough so typing on lap is difficult, I would say unless you press very firmly on keys most of the time otherwise it's never an issue. But of course when comparing with old/new Lenovo Duet/Duet 3/Duet 5, their keyboards are harder which is even better.
3. Fingerprint support is not very common on Chromebooks, however it's convenient.
4. Display support is decent, internal display is 2K (however considering the actual size of screen I am not going to use native resolution), and supports 1 ext. display with 2K@60Hz or 4K@30Hz (tested both), now in my workplace I just need to plug my USB-C monitor to it and it works perfectly. I also tested 4K YouTube which doesn't lag when I am using 4K monitor.
5. 2 x USB-C ports, both ports on the same side and the spacing is not same as Macbooks, so don't try to use those dual USB-C hubs on this Chromebook. Personally I would still like to have one on each side.
6. Kick stand is solid, you can set it to almost laying down on table for writing, unfortunately this kick stand doesn't support portrait direction.
In general getting around 20-30 tabs opening and work daily with this Chromebook is of no trouble, it's definitely not just a simple travel companion like the old Lenovo Duet.
A:AnswerThank you for the question. The HP 11-da0013dx Chromebook give you a couple of options for expanding storage. There is a micro SD media card reader onboard, as well as 2 SuperSpeed UPS-c ports to which you can connect an external storage drive. Additionally, a one-year subscription to Google One is included for free (100 GB of cloud storage).
A:AnswerHello. Thanks for your question. There are a couple of options that you can do. First, you can get a USB to 3.5 mm headphone jack adapter. Secondly, you can use Bluetooth headphones with this Chromebook.
A:AnswerThank you for your question, Jimmy! Most Android apps will work with Chromebooks and are available in the Google Play store. These will perform great! However, a small number of apps may not be available for Chromebook, and this is due to the app developer's code. For example, some apps are designed specifically for phones but not tablets or computers.
A:AnswerThe HP X2 11” is a very good device with an excellent performance.
Initially I had an issue with the keyboard, not connecting to the device, but my unit was replaced and the new one is working as expected.
I highly recommend this device. It is well built and performs very well.
