HP ProBook x360 11 G1 EE Touchscreen Convertible Laptop

HP ProBook x360 11 G1 EE is a convertible 2-in-1 touchscreen laptop with an 11.6-inch LED-backlit display, Intel Celeron N3350 processor, 128GB Solid State Drive, 4GB memory, Windows 10 Home operating system, good connectivity including 802.11ac wireless, Bluetooth and HDMI and HD webcam. There is a single 5 star rating at the moment for this home and student laptop that first appeared at Amazon.com very recently, on February 26, 2021.

The quarter 4 of 2016 release dual core Intel Celeron N3350 processor (2MB cache, 2 threads without hyperthreading) works at the speeds between 1.1GHz and 2.4GHz with the turbo boost function. With an average CPU Passmark benchmark score of 1164, you can only expect an entry level performance that is still reliable and consistent for your regular daily tasks. 128GB SATA-3 Solid State Drive offers many times more speed than the regular SATA hard drive and is an adequate amount of storage space at this entry level.

You may also want to use external storage and Cloud wherever and whenever you have internet access. 4GB DDR3 SDRAM is the minimum amount of memory any decent machine should have these days and will do the job as long as you don’t push it too hard with many browsers and apps at the same time. The latest release Windows 10 Home operating system installation on this machine does not come with any bloatware that you’d need to uninstall later on. It weighs 3.2 pounds and measures W8.15 x D11.91 x H0.78 inches. It has the pick-resistant and spill-resistant full sized keyboard and clickpad with the multitouch gestures enabled (also on the touchscreen).

11.6-inch diagonal HD SVA slim LED-backlit touchscreen display has the 1366 x 768 pixel resolution and even though it doesn’t have the pixel density of a Full HD display, the difference is not noticeable on such a small 11.6-inch display. You may use it in different modes of laptop, tablet, stand, tent and anything in between. And you can browse the internet, stream and watch videos and play the simple games in clear HD resolution. TheHP ProBook x360 11 G1 EE Touch Convertible Laptop built-in Intel HD 500 graphics’ performance level is similar to the older Intel HD graphics (Braswell) and lets you only play the older and less demanding game titles smoothly. It comes with the HP Audio and two integrated stereo speakers for a decent sound quality.

There is also a front facing MP HD webcam at 1280 x 720p resolution for your live Skype chats and still photos. Connectivity options include the 802.11ac wireless, Bluetooth 4.2, Gigabit Ethernet, 2 x USB 3.1 gen 1 ports, a USB Type-C port, an HDMI v1.4b output supporting up to 3840 x 2160 resolution at 30 Hz, headphone/microphone combo jack, HP Multi-Format Digital Media Reader, Trusted Platform Module (TPM) 2.0 and a lock slot. It has the HP Long Life 3-cell, 41 Wh prismatic internal battery that is not replaceable by the customer. And the battery life is reported to be up to 10.5 hours at the low light settings. This little laptop is designed for daily computing like streaming music and videos, browsing the internet, doing homework, word processing, spreadsheets, saving photos etc.
