First and foremost, the HP Chromebook x360 is affordable.Tthe x360 tag in the name means this has the popular 360-degree rotating hinge and that means you can use this as a tablet. And for a laptop that uses Chrome OS, there’s nothing better. And HP is offering decent specifications for an affordable laptop, which is good for casual users. Looks chic and playful, flaunts a robust HP build The HP Chromebook x360 looks like any normal laptop but the lid goes for a bold white colour with slightly curved contours and sharp cut lines. The metallic keyboard deck gets a silver colour finish and inside, it looks similar to any other HP laptop The inside of the lid has a 14-inch IPS LCD display with touchscreen input and thanks to the hinges, you can rotate the screen up to 360 degrees to use it as a Chrome OS tablet. The 14-inch IPS LCD display is big with narrow bezels and since it’s a touchscreen panel, it’s covered by glass. I got my first taste of Chrome OS with the HP Chromebook x360 and compared to any Windows laptop or a macOS device, it feels made for the new generation by the new generation. The core system functionalities are similar to Windows and macOS but it behaves more like Android in its approach to an intuitive UI.
Chromebook is a great product. This used in a laptop or a tablet and I really like it. This is in the right price range. This laptop especially for my learning and this is exactly what I expected. If you want something to write on and take care of basic web-related stuff, I highly recommend this.
