Last Edited by wuzzy June 16, 2016 at 05:57 AM
I've been looking for a new Chromebook and found that HP has the new HP Chromebook 13 G1 in stock at their store.

http://store.hp.com/us/en/PDPStdV...reId=10151

Use the coupon DMSMB15 and it will knock $74.85 off the normal price of $499. Shipping is free, but you may have to pay tax. This is using the new Skylake chip. You may be able to use the same coupon on the better models, but they're out of stock as of this morning.

I debated between this and the Dell Chromebook 13, and between the base models, this seems to have everything I want. It has USB-C ports/charging, a backlit keyboard, a micro SD slot, a 32GB eMMC drive, it's lighter than my old Macbook Air at 2.86 lbs, and the QHD+ (3200 x 1800) screen that a lot of reviews say is the best Chromebook screen out there. Since using the coupon gets you to roughly the same base price as the Dell, I figured that this would be perfect for my use, although I know that others may want a slightly better processor. That wasn't worth the $100 bump for me though. I'm happy at $424.15 shipped plus tax. Smilie You may be able to combine it with cashback from Discover or the usual places, but YMMV.

Where's the logic with this @ $425? CB's are so gimped and $150 everywhere. Hope you do better when it comes time to buy a house and car.

Personal preference. You're not going to find all the features this one has for $150. You can buy cheaper if you want, but you'll get a cheap machine. Personally, having the light metal body with USB-C and the QHD screen did it for me. No touchscreen, but that wasn't important to me (I won't use many Android apps when that's released, although this model will be able to use those.)

My house and cars are doing just fine though. Big Grin

I wonder if this one suffers from PWM like the Dell Chromebook 13 does.

This would be a great deal at $200-250 from the Outlet.

PWM? I'm considering the Dell and wondering what your talking about.

PWM? Pulse-width modulation?

Like OP mentioned in an earlier comment this model doesn't have a touchscreen, which you might come to regret when Google Play (Android's Play store) arrives [googleblog.com] at Chrome OS. Something to consider.

looks like a nice machine, but $400+ is quite a bit. I have the older, 1080p Toshiba model. even at 1920x1080 the resolution makes some website text almost too small.

I've seen bigger screens with QHD and everything is still so tiny. As long as you know what you are in for with it on a 13" screen, then go for it, but for me it seems like overkill.

Yes and yes. I took a video of the screen.

It may or may not be an issue to you, but it is to some people.

I hope this chromebook doesn't suffer from the same phenomenon because it looks awesome.

Thank you OP, I've been watching this since it became available (and has been in and out of stock) a couple of weeks ago. This is an excellent discount.

Regarding resolution, some reviewers are running this at 1600 x 900 (doubling up the pixels) so it should be easier to read than 1920 x 1080 on a similar sized screen.

One downside is that HP uses a full size charger brick for this. I wish it was more compact (will likely buy a smaller adapter).

Sick resolution - just did some research on the processor and the sites says its comparable performance to a i3. I think Im going to pull the trigger

Thanks! The charger brick comment is a good point, but since the charger itself uses USB-C, I wonder if I can use my Nexus 6P charger for it. I was going to check the adapter when it arrived, but I wouldn't see why I couldn't.

I wish this CB has a detachable keyboard and touchscreen so you can use it like a giant tablet with Android apps when they become available. Is there a CB currently on the market that have a detachable keyboard and touchscreen ?

There are a load of Dell 13" touchscreen models with detachable keyboard that have m5 cpu's (equiv to an older i5), 4-8GB of ram and 128-256GB hard drives, 1920x1080 screen. Refurbs on ebay for high 300's to low 400's depending on whether they have the higher specs, backlit keyboard and/or second battery in the keyboard.

It runs windows 10 but there are bazoodles of android emulators you could use for the android apps, or you could dual boot something like remix-os.

I've had one for a few months and like it. I'd had one of those $70 10" unbranded laptops but wanted a bigger screen, higher resolution and more horsepower.

Its basically a cheaper, slightly lower spec surface tab.

I've been looking for the same thing and haven't found anything like this. If this was ever available, it would completely kill Android's tablet market.
