by James Wilkinson

The all-new HP Chromebook x2 11 has hit the Australian market and once again, the newest Google Chromebook model has quickly become a must-have for business and leisure travellers alike.

The HP Chromebook x2 11 is an ultra-thin Chromebook that’s small, light versatile enough to take anywhere, be it the beach or an aircraft.

It has a flexible design lets you easily detach the keyboard and kickstand, ideal for both typing out emails and working on documents or catching a movie on Netflix or Google Play.

Tasks are made faster thanks to the Qualcomm Snapdragon 7c processor and the 3:2 aspect ratio touchscreen, while it is fantastic for working on, especially on an aircraft in economy, it’s also fun for relaxing with thanks to the quality of video and audio, which is astounding, thanks to the 2K screen and dual speakers with audio by Bang & Olufsen.

This is also a winner for video calls, which is accentuated further by the HP Wide Vision 5 megapixel camera that will also ensure you are crystal-clear for colleagues or family on the call.

The HP Chromebook x2 11 also offers a 10-hour battery life and 4G LTE, mean you can stay connected on longer calls and when working remotely and it also offers Chromebook’s ‘Everything Button’, which allows you to search Google, your Drive, apps, files and more, all from the one place.

It has also been built with the environment in mind. The HP Chromebook x2 laptop is Energy Star certified and EPEAT Silver registered, and has been made with sustainable materials like ocean-bound plastic and post-consumer recycled plastic in the design.

The HP Chromebook x2 11 is available now from the Google Store.
