HP Chromebook x2 11 discount sale

The HP Chromebook x2 11 sale is back: Down to $349 from $599

As I said in my review of the HP Chromebook x2 11, don’t buy it for the full retail price of $599. On sale, which is often, it’s a much better value. And now you can pick up the detachable Chrome OS tablet on sale for $349. Best Buy has dropped the price again for an HP Chromebook x2 11 sale.

This price is a bit more realistic for with the HP Chromebook x2 11 sale, which includes a digital pen, detachable keyboard, and removable back cover with a kickstand.

(Update: Read my full review of the HP Chromebook X2 11 here and be sure to compare it to the $499 Lenovo Duet 5 Chromebook that I also recently reviewed.)

I say that because nearly the same internals can be had for $399 in the Acer Chromebook Spin 513. Both the Acer and the HP are powered by a first-generation Qualcomm Snapdragon 7c processor. If you’re curious about the performance experience on such a device, read my review of the LTE version of the Acer Chromebook Spin 513.

Like the HP that’s on sale, it comes with 8 GB of memory but has double the storage capacity of 128 GB. However, that extra eMMC storage isn’t likely to impact the overall device performance if you’re comparing.

For $349, you’re getting a really nice display. The HP Chromebook x2 11 has an 11-inch IPS touch panel with 2160 x 1440 resolution. So you pixel-peepers out there shouldn’t easily see individual pixels. It also has a fingerprint sensor for simple login and authentication, which is handy.

Unlike the LTE-enabled Spin 513 I reviewed, this configuration of the HP is WiFi-only. And because the Qualcomm chipset is two years old, you’re only getting WiFi 5. If you don’t have a newer WiFi 6 router, you shouldn’t care. Although if you do upgrade your router in the future, you won’t see a huge uplift on the HP.

  1. Best Buy has this for $349 right now. Not sure how long it will be on sale for this price. Before this, the lowest I’ve seen it was $379.
