I've had the Chromebook for about 2 weeks and I'm impressed. With Thanksgiving and houseguests, I haven't had the chance until now to really sit down and focus on it. The HP Chromebook looks good, has a great feel, and is very responsive. It starts up immediately when you open the lid and packs a mighty punch. It has touchscreen/touch pad capabilities.. or you can add a mouse.. to navigate your way through the websites you want to visit. There are so many features to look into and all very exciting to explore!
There are a number of free apps and you can sync your devices to allow you to take your mini Chromebook out and about when you travel and still have access to everything you need to keep in touch either for business or play.
I'm enjoying my HP11 and every time I open it up, there's more to find. It took me 5 minutes to link it to my printer and I now have a great alternative to working on my old computer.
Yes, there are differences, but it's easy to make the transition from laptop to Chromebook and back again. It's well worth the effort and once the "learning" is done, you can have fun and make your own discoveries!!
