HP Chromebook x360 11MK G3: Full Specs
With such a low price, you can’t really expect premium materials, however, that doesn’t mean that the laptop should feel cheap or lack rigidity. As these Chromebooks are generally a bit thicker, with a profile of 20.8 mm and a weight of 1.42 kg, you should have an especially sturdy chassis, especially at 11.6 inches. The laptop has a black chassis with HP and Chromebook logos on the lid, while both it and the bottom panel have a rubberized finish.
The display selection consists of only one display option, with an 11.6-inch IPS panel with a resolution of 1366 x 768p. It’s covered with Gorilla Glass 3 and has 220 nit of brightness, which is on the lower side, but it will be okay when indoors. It also covers 69% of the NTSC gamut, which translates to around 90% to 94% of the sRGB gamut, providing good colors when looking at all types of content.
Specifications and features
For power, you rely on the ARM-based Mediatek MT8183, which houses an octa-core processor, with four performance cores and four efficiency cores. It was released all the way back in 2019, but it should still offer good performance for daily tasks, especially in ChromeOS. It uses the Mali-G72 graphics with three cores. It sounds underpowered, but remember that you’ll be using the Chromebook for watching videos, and browsing the web, which doesn’t especially warrant a lot of GPU horsepower.
In terms of the port selection, we have two USB ports, one Type-A,\ and One Type-C, both running at 2.0 speeds, an SD card reader, and a 3.5 mm audio jack. The power button and a volume rocker are also found on the sides.
