OK Chromies,
Back on the OS update testing posts on the new gear. Previous Beta 56.xxx.28 was about 100 points faster than the newest update 56.xxx.58. It is not a big drop but a drop nonetheless. "Flags" are all the same. I still haven't jumped to Dev to test the Play Store. I am going to wait till it reaches Beta. Yeah, I am a wuss on that but I have been very happy and comfortable with Beta for so long with never an issue for the past few years. So I will run a RAM and Systems check to see if the Beta is maximizing the resources any better today and will update later with that test.

+Robert Smith​ what I do is test 3 times and the middle # is what I post. I am nowhere near a sanctioned Google person but I started posting this with my HP CB14 g1 and have continued upto now. Which is an HP CB13 g1 m3.

I have a HP Chromebook that the keyboard does not work. Is there a link for me to check out before I assume it's mechanical issue. Thanks

Ok Chromies, I told you my Christmas gift had shipped and here it is. On the right my HP CB14 g1. On the left my new HP CB13 g1 with 4GB ram, 32GB storage, Intel m3 processor. First Octane score for it on beta channel. I will give my full review in a day or two.

+Scott Patrick I posted my take on the machine after 10 days. I notice the size difference as I open up tabs, move things around at home but at work I have a second screen so it is not missed at all. BTW, going from the "HD" screen of the 14 to the QHD 3200x1800 of this machine is a fair trade off.

+Dennis Kempin​ Have been on Canary for 3 years (see http://strawn-04.blogspot.com/2013/12/chromebook-howto-update-to-hidden.html) with no problems in that regard. I do however make regular backups of my work to Google Drive just in case a powerwash is needed to fix damage caused by a Canary update.

I just received my HP chromebook 13, and I`m trying to play some games fron the playstore, but most of them don`t open, and the ones that does open requires more than one touch input.

What games do you guys are playing on the chromebook?

+Dennis Kempin Thank you very much! Of course gamepad is the least convenient controller to a game like this. I just had to support it to have the game accepted for Android TV. However, it may always happen someone wants to use it on another device. Thanks for clarifying the issue.
The game was my sentimental journey back to 90s. I had coded the very first version in 1992 for 8-bit Atari (there'a a movie showing the old gameplay on the website). Just wanted to see it once again in action. :)

Hello Fellow Chromies,

So it has been 10 days since I got my HP 13 g1. Here is my take...

Build - A+ All aluminum with chrome accents solid and beautiful

Speed - My HP is the Intel® Core™ m3-6Y30 with Intel HD Graphics 515 (900 MHz, up to 2.2 GHz with Intel Turbo Boost Technology, 4 MB cache) In other words...wicked fast Octane Score of 23000. Twice the speed of my HP 14 g1.

Ports - 2x USB-C, 1x USB A-3.0, and my favorite, 1x micro SD card (I have a 128GB card in it.)

HDD (for the lack of a better term) 32GB eMMC

Wireless - Intel® Dual Band Wireless-AC 7265 802.11a/b/g/n/ac (2x2) WiFi and Bluetooth® 4.2 Combo

Keyboard - Full-sized textured black island-style backlit keyboard

OK now for the personal report...As much of a work horse as my HP14 was this is by and far a great upgrade. So what did I give up? An extra inch of screen real estate, my cellular modem (T-Mobile for Life) and that cool teal color.

Worry not chromies, it has found a good home as I introduce my 15yr old daughter to Chromebooks.

So what have I gained? A screen that can handle a resolution of 3200x1800, an m3 processor, 2x storage and a micro SD that is flush against the beautiful chassis. From here on out my Chrome OS posts and scores will be from this machine.

If you have any question...Fire Away!

My 2013 Pixel had died s few days ago. Nothing will bring it back so I have bought an HP13. Honestly, I cannot see a single thing that it is lacking in against my four years old Pixel. HP 13 is a splendid machine. No regrets over the purchase and no feelings of "this isn't quite up to my Pixel"...NOT ONE! Certainly an equal.

If someone else had issues with HP Chromebook 14 (2013) fan noise.. I did a easy fix and now it is silent as a ninja.

1. opening a laptop is easy, only 13 screws (4 hidden)
2. detached the fan, 3 screws, removed a dust bunny..
3 . just bend top metal cover of a fan 1mm towards the keyboard.. make it bit concave and not flat

now fan does not touches the housing and it is really silent.
pics show fan without top metal housing cover.

hope it hepls someone!

+Shawn Kurschner You can make a Circle with no one in it (necessarily) called 'Saved for later' or whatever title you like to give it and share a post to that circle.

[edit] Hmm, people seem to find this a novel idea. Let me add you can also choose to make a collection that serves the same purpose. There are advantages and disadvantages to both solutions.

This may sound like a rather redundant question that Google should have answered for me by now, but every search I attempt gets me nowhere with this one: Is the RAM in kip (HP 11 G4) upgradable or is it soldered-on?

The zipso site just says unlikely. That's the closest I could find to an answer without consulting HP.

HP Chromebook 13: Touchpad Issue

Anyone else owning a HP Chromebook 13 here?
I have just received mine, and it looks absolutely gorgeous. But I do have a minor quibble with it: The touchpad seems to have some wiggle room at the bottom end, i.e. it moves maybe half a millimeter up and down depending wither my finger rests on it. And if it moves down, it clicks just lightly. This just shouldn't be the case, and I have never had this with any of my great many laptops.
Note, I am not referring to the actual CLICK when I actually press the touchpad to produce a primary click or for drag-and-drop.
I am tempted to return the device in exchange for a new one, but only if someone can confirm that mine indeed has a defect.

This has been an issue for me with several of my Chromebooks. Acer C720 (3 different models), all of my Toshiba 13" Chromebooks (all 3 generations), and even my new Acer R13. It was actually an easy thing to fix on the C720s, but I just lived with it on the others.
