The Chromebook 11 debuted a few years ago and has been replaced by the HP Chromebook x2 11. With a high-quality 3:2 1440p touchscreen and a rather unusual Qualcomm Snapdragon 7c Gen. 1 SoC, this higher midrange Chromebook 2-in-1 is capable of multitasking. Initially set at USD 599$, the model’s price has recently decreased to under USD 400$ through stores like Best Buy.

The Lenovo IdeaPad Duet 10 is one of the few detachable Chromebooks which are not very widespread. The Asus Chromebook Flip, Acer Chromebook Spin, Lenovo IdeaPad Flex 5, Dell Latitude 7410 Chromebook, and Samsung Galaxy Chromebook are just a few examples of the many convertible Chromebooks available.

Review

You’re looking to buy a detachable 2-in-1 tablet that you can use with a keyboard and pen or on its own. At $599, Apple’s 10.9-inch iPad Air is an excellent option and a PCMag Editors’ Choice winner. However, if you’re open to a different way of thinking, HP’s 11-inch Chromebook x2 is the same price and comes with twice the memory as well as the keyboard and pen that Apple will pay an additional $428 for. Tablet buyers do not often consider Chromebooks, but the HP x2 rewards the brave. It doesn’t perform as well as Chromebook laptops with comparable prices (and we still think the Lenovo Chromebook Duet is the best deal among Chromebook detachable), but it satisfies a valuable need.

In September 2018, we examined the first HP Chromebook x2—a 12.3-inch tablet with an Intel Core m3 processor. The variant for this year sports an eight-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 7c processor and an 11-inch Gorilla Glass touchscreen with a 3:2 aspect ratio and 2,160 by 1,440-pixel resolution. Our $599 test unit comes with 8GB of RAM, 64GB of eMMC flash storage, the snap-on keyboard, and a rechargeable pen; HP.com offers a $679.99 model with 128GB of storage and 4G LTE mobile internet but without the pen ($48.99).

Thank you !!
