This is on the android app compatibility list so it should eventually support Android apps.
EDIT: hp.com seems to be selling this configuration for $422.
EDIT#2: this seems to have the model number T9H50AV
EDIT#3: I found this review that complains of a poor screen and subpar battery life on this chromebook’s non-ee cousin. Not sure how much of that still applies.
…does this computer have wi-fi?
Cant find an answer to that…I tried and tried. Now, back to bed.
Right in the specs section.
Can we please not get repeat listings for items already on sale? At least offer some touchscreen options now that Play Store is offered on a few machines.
There’s an opening on left side. Does that lead to an SD card port?
Yes- it will support these formats: SD Memory Card , SDHC Memory Card , SDXC Memory Card , SDXC UHS Memory Card
According the the HP page for this item (which I got to by Googling):
1 multi-format digital media reader
(Supports SD, SDHC, SDXC)
Try it, it’s easy and fun!
I’ve had an Asus chromebook similar to this with a touchscreen for almost 2 years. It still works great for web surfing but don’t believe for a minute that it will run android apps. Never has, never will. If you plan to use any app other than chromecast or kindle, get an android tablet and a keyboard. It also works fine for netflix and amazon video. The SD card sticks out so it’s for temporary storage. NAS or cloud storage works best.
It’s a great portable computer for people who are vulnerable to hackers too.
We do have this model in a Woot Plus sale, but it is Factory Reconditioned as opposed to the New condition that we have in this Daily.
I bought a Chromebook about 4 months ago as an experiment. I’m glad I did.
Natively it does 90% of what I need a laptop to do- start fast, prevent virus problems, surf the web swiftly, go anywhere in a lightweight form factor and last a long time while on battery power.
For the 10% of tasks where a Chromebook cannot do the job I use a remote desktop app (VNC, TeamViewr, Chrome Remote Desktop, etc) to log into my Win7 PC thru the Chromebook.
If I lose the chromebook the next one will have everything on it once I log into my Google acct.
PC Mag gives it a good review and recommendation. http://www.pcworld.com/article/3052858/hardware/hp-chromebook-11-g4-review-this-low-cost-laptop-stands-out-for-its-speed-and-solid-construction.html
