    So far so good. Have had no issues as of now. I got this Chromebook in exchange for another Chromebook from a different brand that I returned to best buy. The other brand was randomly rebooting for about 3 weeks usually during my son's zoom classes. So far this one did something similar, but only once and it was during a time it actually updated something. This Chromebook has been working like its supposed to. I got it for my son and he is able to use it fine. It's user friendly and of course I always trust HP....I should have gotten this HP in the first place, lesson learned.

    For the $219-$239, worth it!

    Pros mentioned:
    Display, Price, School use

    Having only owned this for a couple days, I think for the price on sale of $219-$239 it's absolutely worth it. Pros: - Display! Even at the regular $289 everyday price, you will NOT find a 1080p, IPS panel looking this good on a device until you hit around maybe $499 before any sale prices kick in. HP rates this at 250 nits, and indoors for those working for home, you will comfortably have it around 70% of that. It does come out of the box at around 1536 x 864, but you can change resolution to be Native 1080p, or max it out at 2194 x 1234. Thin bezels on the left and right side too. Great for watching movies! - Keyboard - Comfortable key spacing and travel to me for typing quite well on it. I will say it's overall positive, but the keycaps do feel a little cheap. Again, typing is very comfortable on it so I think it's something that is good overall. - Performance - Snappy web browsing performance, and even though the site here lists the Intel Celeron N4000 and an HP rep confirms this... my box said it has the newer Intel Celeron N4020, but even with that, it will stop auto updates at June 2026, not 2028 like other N4020 machines. - Battery - Mostly web surfing, watching an episode or two of One Piece, and some clips on YouTube, getting over 8.5 hours and that's with brightness over 80% just because I tend to like it a little brighter. Solid battery life. - Camera - Webcam looks good in the camera app, maybe a little too bright like over exposing, but not a bad look. 720p. I have seen Chromebooks and WIndows devices cost 2-3 times more with much worse webcams, or none at all. For Zoom, Microsoft Teams, Skype, etc, I think it's a passable look. Cons: - Build. Plastic all over, and it's a kind of cheap feeling one. I don't mean that in a deal breaker way, and funny enough it makes the laptop feel lighter than it looks, but my wrists and forearms on the keyboard deck as I type feel... off? I'm coming from an Acer Spin 713 or other aluminum keyboard decks, and this feels not as well built. On a positive, there is very little to no keyboard flex, so the keyboard deck definitely feels reinforced. Again, not a deal breaker, but upon touching it I can feel this is where they get good performance and a great display for under $300. Note that this laptop is still a Chromebook, so it does NOT run Microsoft Windows. The OS, I mean. Microsoft Office apps it CAN run, but it's the Google Play Store apps or the Office Online version. For personal use, I think most people may be fine switching considering that Google Docs is free and for basic, personal use is fine and cloud connects to our ANdroid phones natively, or can sync to iPhones by downloading those apps form the App Store. For students needing Office, if you're primarily writing APA/MLA format essays, absolute basics in Excel or smaller Powerpoints, those Office apps should be fine to use with your student login or your own 365 license, but it ONLY works with 365. Office Home licenses CANNOT work on ChromeOS. If you're primarily using it for home use (banking, YouTube, social media, online browsing), I see no reason to buy a Windows device in the same price range. Chromebooks are much snappier for these tasks at this price point, and updates are seamless and non-intrusive. If you're needing programs made for Windows, or are an "expert user" of Microsoft Office apps, or need Publisher or Access, stick to Windows, but absolutely get an SSD for better speed, and ideally 8GB RAM and a Core i3/AMD Ryzen 3 for a good experience. Elementary/Middle school kids learning remotely, this device is perfect for. You can use Canvas, Zoom, Office if needed through the Play Store, and for parents you can use Family Link to lock it down or set time limits with a supervised Gmail account that is compatible with Chromebooks. If my niece didn't prefer smaller devices with a touch screen, I would gift this to her and have no issues. For now, my sister has an older 2015 model Chromebook that will get updates until 2021, but at this price and this holiday season, I will probably gift this to her as an upgrade and not have to stress it for at least 5-6 years.

    Keyboard

    I love this chromebook! It’s all plastic and really light but feels solid. Not MacBook Air light, but really comfortable. It doesn’t feel like it’s going to break when you pick it up and handle it. The hinge is also pretty sturdy, but the screen does not lay flat. The speakers are only OK. No bass at all but very clear so I’m happy with them. They keyboard is only OK. I prefer a louder more clicky keyboard like on some Acers, but this keyboard will do fine. The touchpad is big and swiping feels good, but it’s weird. It kind of feels and sounds like it’s loose. Like it moves ever so slightly before you actually press it. Not annoying at all, but definitely there. The matte 1080p IPS screen looks great for a $239 machine. I pulled up some pictures on Pixabay and the screen looks pretty good compared to the gorgeous screen on my Zenbook UX461 and my iPad 7. It doesn’t get super bright but I can live with that. Really happy with the screen. I don’t have any experience with Celeron processors, but it feels snappy enough. I experimented with multiple YouTube videos and a TubiTV movie all running at the same time with no issues. There was a tiny bit of lag when switching between these windows, but normal people movie watching doesn’t have any issues at all. I’m getting 17748 on Octane 2.0 and 528 on HTML5Test. The jury is out on battery life, though. I get a sense that 8 to 9 hours will be about average. At $239, I can definitely recommend this chromebook!

    This is my second chrome book. My first one never had a problem, lasted for over ten years and was so much easier to use compared to other computers. This new one was super easy to set up. And unlike other computers, there are no constant updates and downloads that impede the user's ability to use the computer quickly and efficiently. I would give this computer a HUGE thumbs up!

    Overall, good HP Chromebook. I like that it is lighter and the screen resolution is 1080p. But, the plastic design does not feel it is going to last. My old HP Chromebook from 5 years ago had better plastic materials. I bought this on sale for $219. Do not buy when it's full price $289, it is not worth it, purchase when it's on sale.

    this thing is great BUT, I find it really annoying that the usb3 lights on both sides of the laptop keep flashing at night when idle and you close the lid. the lights of the usb 3 ports keep flashing and blinking in and out in the middle of the night, I can't have this in my room when i'm sleeping because its really annoying to have the lights flashing in and out. I hope a future update fixes this because, its really annoying and useless. otherwise, it does youtube and websurfing from the couch very well. right before this, I had a really good i3 windows 15" laptop. for some reason, I just switched to a chromebook. IDK why. maybe I will give windows a second chance if i find a good deal and a slim sleek chassis like this one, but until then, I will just have to deal with the blinking usb 3 lights, Best Buy, if you can update this chromebook to remove that annoying usb 3 lights flashing while sleeping idle, then please do it. It will make this chromebook perfect. the ips screen is really good.

    Bought this for my 5th grader for virtual school and traditional school. He is also using it for gaming and it is able to keep up with his programs/games etc. He really likes it. The only problem we have has to do with the parental controls app called Family Link (not the computer) - it requires a pass code from me to let him on it, then he signs in with his gmail login, then I have to login with my gmail to "add" his gmail to this computer. We have to do this EVERY time he logs in. It does not "add" him like it says it will. So for now I am just continuing to do that, so I can have the parental controls. The computer itself is great. Its our 2nd chromebook. I like them much better than regular PCs. Download any app from the Google Playstore and off you go. FYI - Norton is not compatible with Chromebook so you will need something else for antivirus/security.

    Pros mentioned:
    Display, Price, School use
    Cons mentioned:
    Keyboard, Touchscreen

    For the price, this is a nice little introductory Chromebook. My son has a school issued Chromebook and this one was SO much faster. The keyboard is decently comfortable but the keys feel a little cheap. I ultimately had to return it because I could not handle the feel of the keyboard. Make sure you do all of the updates before you really decide how you like it. At first I had bad audio skipping but after the 3 updates to the latest version, that cleared up. One thing I really liked was how fast the Wifi was on this. I was getting speeds faster than my main desktop in my home. It was plenty fast to stream games on XBox Game Pass. The screen is nice and clear. It's not a touch screen, so you can't take full advantage of some of the Play Store apps. Just keep that in mind. The mouse pad is passable. It feels a little like the keys--just like its not firmly in place and a little cheap. But for the BF price, you can't go wrong if you want something that is just there for fast browsing and getting around the internet. I prefer the ChromeOS system to Windows in S mode, because even with these stripped down specs its alot more responsive.

    I'm very happy with my Chromebook. What I am not happy with is myself because I didn't wait one more week to order it. I could have saved $140!! I'm very disappointed in that. I don't think it would have been asking too much to give me a refund. When I asked Best Buy about it, they said I could return it to a store (there isn't one for a long ways) and then order it at the cheaper price. Since it was out of stock before, I didn't want to try that and probably have to wait until after Christmas. My old Chromebook was worn out and I needed the new one!

    This laptop works very good for basic internet use; reading emails, perusing the internet and watching videos. Just remember that with Chromebooks there is an Auto Update Expiration date (AUE). That means Google will no longer send software and security updates to your Chromebook after a certain date. Chromebook will still work but the software will no longer be updated.

    Good product for my daughter for school work. She doesn't like that the internet cuts out on it from time to time, but it does automatically reconnect. Can cause trouble with Zoom meetings though. No other computer does this in our home, so I don't believe it is the internet signal but I can't be sure. She does enjoy the ease of use and it's the perfect size for her. Very lightweight.

    Bought this laptop for my 12 year old daughter and wasnt sure how it would be since it was one of the cheaper laptops but honestly this laptop works amazingly has everything she wanted in a laptop and alot more. Definitely recommend this one for someone who isn't rich or having a hard time financially since Covid19 to purchase this laptop if they want or need one. Trust me we dont have to spend 200 300 or even 500 to have a laptop that can do the same but doe under 200.

    I got this for $150 from BestBuy on Black Friday. I use it mostly for streaming Netflix and Prime and surfing the net so this is sufficient enough for what it is intended for. The exterior is mainly plastic but looks and weighs hefty enough. The touchpad can be a bit annoying as it requires some force to get it to click. If you are using this on a table or hard surface, I would suggest attaching a mouse through the USB port.

    Does exactly what it is supposed to do. Small, lightweight, good battery life. Web based so it does everything you do online in your web browser and not much else. This is what we all spend 90% of our time doing all day on our phones anyway. Keep your heavy laptop on your desk for work. Sit on the couch with this Chromebook to watch videos and check your email.

    I love this little computer I had to retire my Laptop and it was window-based and six years old with all the bells and whistles. Windows based including a touchscreen. This little computer is by far superior, I absolutely love it and is exactly what I need and for the price you can’t beat it! Go for it you won’t be sorry!

    Picked this up for digital learning. Was decent foe the purpose that we needed it for. This is not something that can handle any serious gaming just for academics abs basic computing.

    Great little chromebook. Nothing too fancy but love being able to get apps on the app store. It's like having a big phone. I would spend a little more money and get a touch screen though. Other than that, great for many purposes.

    HP is a trusted brand, and this product did not disappoint. I purchased the chrome book for a friend that was in need of a laptop. I also purchased an SD card for additional storage. Eat product.

    Good little basic computer - used by senior family member. Quite quick in log on and good for internet surfing. Only gripe - limited battery life - not near what I expected.
