Update on new HP 11 G5 (including touchscreen)!

After getting the manufacturer number from +Guido A I was able to find a total of 6 possible varieties of the device at CDW. I am guessing a couple of them could be the touchscreen options (the higher priced models). Pricing on the non-touch 2GB RAM/16 eMMC appears to come in under $200. You can check out the 6 listed devices here:

As expected, more touchscreen versions coming to new and existing models with the Play Store on the horizon. Thanks for sharing.

+Kenny Strawn  +Stephen Bertoni , actually kip is for the board codename, while most chromebooks have boards specifically for that chromebook, a few DO share the same board. Most chromebooks have a custom SoC (referred to as the board)

Wow! I just received my HP Chromebook 13 and am thoroughly impressed. My budget didn't allow me to go all out so I purchased the least expensive model at $499. less the discount and I think it was $450. with tax and free shipping.

My previous unit for comparison was the Acer R11, which I liked but simply felt that at times it had a video drag where it just slowed so I was looking at newer technology. I also have an HP Chromebox on my desk which prior to today at only 2 gigs on board and now it is at 4 gigs. The HP CB13 has 4.

The only two items that I am finding at this point I am not 100% crazy about is the speakers and the micro SD card slot. The speakers are certainly nice and maybe there is a setting I can get to, but I would like to be able to make them a little more base, they feel a little high end but they are very clear. I do realize you are not going to get much base, if anyone, out of a thin profile laptop but some adjust might suite one's taste better.

I wish the SD card slot was a little deeper so that the SD card did not protrude at all. I am afraid with a slight protrusion that one could accidentally push in and loose a card.

The video is outstanding. I do like the feel of the keyboard, a little softer then the R11 but workable. It is backlit which some people do not feel they need but personally I prefer it.

No reservations. I had looked at some bench tests between the Pentium that I bought and the m3, the next model up and it really seemed very indecisive with some testing appeared to lean more towards the Pentium for overall operation.

You're never going to get great sound from laptop speakers. Any laptop. That's why they sell earphones.

Need HELP on this please.

I just purchased the HP Chromebook 13 which sells for $499. My understanding, at least from my reading, is that all of the machines have the same display:

(13.3") diagonal QHD+ UWVA WLED eDP BrightView (3200 x 1800)

Someone came out and said that he thought the low end model only has 1080 but I have confirmed that is not the case. I am now wondering if the display OUT is possibly only 1080?

I talked to an HP rep on the live chat and that proved pointless. I have tried to research this to no avail. As I would like to hook up a second, 24" monitor to it, this could be an issue.

So, does anyone know? Does the video out on these units match what is offered in the unit's display parameters and it is up to the external monitor as to what it can handle? I still have time to cancel my purchase if needed so I am trying to find this out before it ships.

Thank you.

Just want to take a minute and say thanks to everyone for the feedback. My HP CB 13 arrives tomorrow and will be my new workhouse. My HP Chromebox will be related to a media server on my RV!

HP Chromebook 13's seem to be coming in/out of stock on the HP site. The $599. model was there earlier, it is gone. The $499. model now shows in stock.

After looking at some analysis of the Pentium vs M3 I did not see a lot of speed difference and saved on the Pentium.

Any HP Chromebook 13 G1 m3 W0T00UT#ABA owners running Stable 51: Is your audio working correctly via the speakers? I received one on Thursday and its speaker audio is intermittently in and out and changing from left to right and back. This was on all audio sources. Via headphones was fine. I couldn't find any other reports on this, so started an RMA, assuming a hardware problem, and it's on its way back to HP. (I ordered a replacement in a narrow window today that it was back in stock.) But a thread I started on Chromebook Central Help just got a reply from another owner who also received one on Thursday and is experiencing the exact same issue. If this is a generic problem--a software problem, say--we need to pool our efforts to get attention on it.

My replacement hardware, received today, plays audio fine through the speakers both on Stable 50 fresh out of the carton and on Stable 51 post the first downloaded update. Go figure.

+Chris Sullins If you would like to mess around with a "cheap" fill-in until the more premium Chromebooks with Play integration in mind are released, get a Asus Flip.

I am looking at and strongly considering one of the new HP Chromebook 13's. I love the design and the ports, so, I just put my Acer C738T-C44Z Chromebook R 11.6-inch HD, 4 GB, 16GB NX.G55AA.005 Touch up for sale and as soon as it sells, I am jumping on an HP.

My budget really supports the $499. model but I have to wonder, how much faster the new models up rate in comparison? Has anyone seen any benchmarks or has first hand experience? If it is really, really worth, it, I will go up in price and quality but I have not seen anything tangible that gives me a good objective analysis??? Thank you.

+David Sheets A Bay Trail Celeron (N2840). The C720-2802 that I had before had a Haswell Celeron. Clock frequency is 2.16GHz and bursts to 2.58GHz, compared to (if I recall correctly) about 1.5GHz in the case of the Celeron 2955U in my C720. The i3 C720 might have it beat, however.

It's finally inside my home state lines. Late pickup delayed it from Friday until tomorrow, but at least my HP 11 G4 is on time since that 2-day label/pickup snafu.

HP Chromebook 13 : I have been contemplating this CB for some time, thinking of selling my new R11 and moving to it, but it seems like HP has it back-ordered until who knows when and you cannot find it in stock anywhere??

+Gabriel Brangers Thank you for the recommendation =. I just did. It works better than "File System for Windows" but still has some quirks. I'm having the hardest time connecting to network file shares that have domain permissions.
