I have the 2021 HP Chromebook x360 14c on loan to change and my first impressions are very favorable. This has an 11th-gen Intel Core i3, 8 GB of memory, 128 GB of SSD storage and 14-inch screen in a 13.3-inch chassis.
I’ve been using the $499 Lenovo Duet 5 Chromebook loaner device daily for more than a week now. It’s a better laptop than a tablet with enough performance for most people and a gorgeous 1080p OLED display.
I have the $499 Lenovo Duet 5 Chromebook in hand for review and upon first impressions, this is a really well built device. The 2nd-gen Snapdragon 7c is boosting performance and that OLED display? Excellent.
