HP Chromebook 11a (11a-na0021nrb) Review And Specification

HP Chromebook 11a (11a-na0021nrb) Review And Specification

Options such as the HP Chromebook 11a will frequently appear when looking for a laptop on a small budget, and for good reason. Though some have lately become so powerful that they are now more expensive, Chromebooks were originally intended to provide an inexpensive option for people who rely heavily on the internet and online services. HP adheres to the basic principles of Chromebooks with the 11a-na0021nrb: they are easy to use, reasonably priced, and practical.

The HP Chromebook 11a, like all other Chromebooks, comes with Chrome OS preinstalled, which runs all of its programs through the Chrome web browser but incorporates some powerful offline modes for those times when you can't get online. This is in contrast to standard laptops, which come preinstalled with Windows 11 OS. To be honest, most individuals find it to be an appealing alternative given its price, especially those who only need to access the internet.

Cheap prices frequently indicate slack quality and/or cut shortcuts, but HP steered clear of those traps in this case, and we're impressed with the results thus far. Though we've tested budget laptops previously, none of them have nearly the same great build quality as this one. Although it is made of plastic, it seems solid and doesn't creak as some of the less expensive Chromebooks have.

The Chromebook 11a has an attractive appearance that belies its price, thanks to the well-polished white plastic that is curved and beveled. We wish the screen resolution was higher than the 720p it now delivers, but battery life is great—it lasts for more than 14 hours on a single charge.

Display and Features

The 11-inch IPS screen of the HP 11a-na0021nrb has a resolution of 1,366x768. This resolution is still perfect because Chrome OS doesn't take up much screen real estate with clutter and has a full-screen option, though 1080p is always preferable. Nevertheless, everything is crisp and easy to read on an 11-inch screen.

You can see the screen from any angle thanks to the excellent viewing angles of the screen. While the ChromeBook 11a is on your lap, you can comfortably view everything on the screen even though it doesn't fold back 180 degrees.  When used on a daily basis, the colors also look amazing, with lots of vitality and detail.

A little of a limited port selection is to be expected from an 11-inch laptop. A USB-A port, a microSD card port, a 3.5mm audio/mic jack, and a USB-C port are all included. There are two wireless communication options: Bluetooth 4.2 and Wi-Fi 5.

Keyboard and Touchpad

The only means to interact with the 11a-na0021nrb laptop are through the keyboard and touchpad because it lacks a touchscreen. Impressive in every way, the laptop's keyboard is edge-to-edge, meaning that each key is a respectable size.

The keyboard is snappy and has nice key travel even though it isn't quite on par with the Apple MacBook Air. Although I find the keys to be a little mushy, the feedback is generally good, so you should make sure to hit the, well. Nonetheless, you can become proficient at touch typing at full speed in a matter of minutes after getting used to it.

Where the Function keys should be on top of the keyboard, Google has put some shortcut keys for Chrome OS. These comprise the browser's back and forward, page reload, full screen, and app switcher buttons. Additionally, there are buttons specifically for the power button, volume, and screen brightness.

A respectable-sized touchpad sits beneath the keyboard, especially given its tiny 11-inch profile. We just wish Windows laptops were as sophisticated as this one. It deactivates as you type to prevent inadvertent contact and movement of the cursor. It also supports a few gestures. In the browser, two-finger swipes are used to go back and forth; two-fingered clicks are used to perform right-clicks as well as scroll.

Battery Life

The remarkable battery life of ARM-based laptops is a fundamental attraction, and the Chromebook 11a is no exception. The HP 11a-na0021nrb has a modest 37Wh battery, but it's still plenty of power for a full workday. Although HP advertises a 15-hour battery life, an average of 12–13 hours is quite impressive.

Although the 45W USB-C charging adaptor for the Chromebook 11a is regarded as quick, it takes slightly more than an hour and a half to fully charge the battery. Again. It's great to see HP use a USB-C connector for both data transfer and charging in the laptop sector.
